COMMUNITY NEWS & EVENTS
Whether you want to join other residents in the fitness center, spend the afternoon crafting, or cozy up with a good book in the library, each day is new and exciting at Abbotswood at Stonehenge.
Our Wellness calendar is filled with a variety of programs to keep you as busy as you'd like to stay and help you maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

Each month we hold many different outings that range from sightseeing bus tours to picnics in the park, visits to museum exhibits, concerts, and everything in between!
Your opportunities are only limited by how you choose to spend your time. As you participate in our award-winning “The Art of Living WellSM” programs, you know your choices are designed to help you maintain an active lifestyle doing things you love, doing activities that challenge you, learning new things, staying physically active, enjoying the company of friends and family, pushing beyond your boundaries, going out on the town, discovering new passions, and more.
Senior Caregiver's Support Group: Thursday, June 20 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Caregiver Support Group for Adult Children of Aging Parents offers support through storytelling and listening that may open ideas for how to cope with the unique stress that caring for an aging parent or loved one can bring.
The meetings are held in the Arts and Crafts room at Abbotswood. We are a group of family members who are caring for, or are concerned about, an elder loved one who may live away from us, who lives with us, who may live alone or may live in a residential care home setting. No matter how it looks, we are experiencing a lot of emotions of concern but also confusion and frustration, too. We don't have all the answers, but this group is a great and safe place to share your joys and concerns and perhaps share or hear some experience or insight that might be helpful to others.
For meeting times, questions about the support group and/or to RSVP, please email Billy Dibbert at firstname.lastname@example.org and Tracy Taylor at email@example.com or call 919.651.4882. Seats are limited so please reserve your spot.

We are proud to present inspirational speaker, Tim Payne in connection with one of our sponsorship partners, NC Planning Law Firm for an intriguing and informative afternoon. Tim Payne was a soldier in the United States Army and during his third oversea deployment in Afghanistan, Tim was severely injured resulting in the amputation of both legs.

experiences with PTSD and determination to persevere to share his stories and lessons learned which are truly inspiring and can be applied to anyone in their own life. It’s sure to be a discussion you don’t want to miss. Following Tim’s discussion, a representative from NC Planning Law Firm will be speaking about VA Benefits including, Veteran’s pension benefits often referred to as “Aid and Attendance” and the changes in laws surrounding these benefits and how you may be affected.
