Residences at Vantage Point Senior Lifestyle in Columbia, Maryland
According to author and blogger Catherine Searle, there are 10 lifestyle types, each representing the way we create meaning and satisfaction in our lives: The Provider, The Adventurer, The Corporate, The Bohemian, The Creative, The Socialite, The Activist, The Academic, The Technician, and The Nature- Lover (www.catherinesearle.com/the-lifestyle-types/). No matter which of these lifestyle types speaks to you, Residences at Vantage Point has been designed to satisfy them all, making on-site activities and the town of Columbia’s community-based programs the perfect, winning combination.
The Lifestyle That Suits You On – And Off – Campus
Stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and always cozy and dry, because when you’re on campus, everything you need – Bistro, Pub, library, fine arts studio, fitness center, underground parking garage, health center, and more – is close at hand and contained inside one spacious building. Variety abounds, too. Attend an educational lecture or art show and be sure to invite a friend – our flexible dining program offers you and your guests a choice of four different venues. It’s also easy to visit a friend or spouse in the health center, which is just a quick elevator ride away.
As for yardwork, housecleaning, cooking, home repairs – we take care of all that for you. Our staff is knowledgeable, responsive and, above all, friendly. You don’t have to spend time waiting for repairmen to show up at your door. Instead, swing your door closed and go wherever you like, without worry.
In the greater Columbia community, audit classes at Howard Community College; enjoy aquatics at Columbia Swim Center; attend live music concerts, festivals, movies, dinner theater, plays, exhibits; enjoy lakefront activities (paddle boating, kayaking, canoeing), biking, parks, nature trails; borrow a book from the county library system; visit 200 retails shops at the Columbia Mall; sample the fare at multiple restaurants, and grocery shop at one of several grocery giants, including Whole Foods.

Creating Fulfillment Through Wellness
Are you satisfied with the things that matter to you in life? We believe there are eight aspects to creating a well-balanced life: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, social, environmental, and health services. This holistic approach to enhancing overall well-being is supported by stimulating lifestyle programs, amenities and services both within Residences at Vantage Point and throughout Columbia and the surrounding area. The entire town is our canvas for creating a fulfilling life!
Comprehensive Programming for the Whole Person
All Vantage Point programming considers the needs of the whole person. You’ll find something to look forward to in every Weekly Bulletin published by the community. It’s filled with 60-70 curated happenings in a variety of disciplines, from physical conditioning, socializing and spiritual pursuits, to intellectual challenges in partnership with Howard Community College. Whether your desire lies in maintaining your best self or improving some aspect of your life, you’ll be surrounded by others who share your vision. Fun, fellowship, fitness, furthering your education and making a difference in the community – it’s all nearby to help you feel good both inside and out.
For those interested in strength, agility, endurance and coordination our full-time Professional Trainers generate robust activity calendars featuring well thought out physical conditioning opportunities. Perhaps you’ll start with muscle toning and meditation, then graduate to cardio dance or a swim at the Wilde Lake Swim Center.
Connect with Community
The adventure continues in Columbia, Baltimore and Washington, DC. Sharing experiences with others and enjoying a healthy atmosphere contribute to wellness. Participate in a workshop, volunteer at Howard County Food Bank, attend a baseball game in Baltimore, catch a play at the Arena Theater, or nurture yourself through nature with a hike on the Wincopin Trail and a tour of cherry blossoms in the District.
While we’ve thought of a lot of activities, there is always room for fresh ideas and avenues to promoting health and wellness. Our residents are our best resource!
