Fresh off a $64 million renovation and expansion emphasizing convenience and wellness, the independent living community at Epworth Villa is introducing its first-ever “try-before-you-buy” leasing option. The monthly charge covers lodging, dining, fitness classes, cable and wifi, utilities, maintenance and housekeeping services. Residents pay no property tax.
Epworth Villa's three on-site restaurants feature fresh, locally sourced foods. Dietary restrictions — from vegan to low-fat to gluten-free — are taken in stride, and each dish is cooked to order.
“This is not your grandparents’ retirement home. We’re excited to reach out to a new generation with our Incentives, and thrilled to introduce our amenities, services, open-concept floor plans, activities and welcoming community.”
Kathy Logsdon, Director of Marketing for the nonprofit, pet-friendly community.
At the heart of Epworth Villa’s redesign is an innovative interior village center featuring a movie theater, bank branch, convenience store, health clinic, library, and private dining and living rooms for entertaining family and friends. Expanded fitness areas feature state-of-the-art equipment, a personal trainer, and saltwater pool. In addition, residents are offered covered parking, regular outings and on-site entertainment. The adjoining Brill Chapel hosts concerts, special events and a weekly Vesper service.
As a continuing care community, residents may opt to age in place with active independent living, on-site assisted living, memory care and services from Epworth Villa’s Skilled Nursing Facility, which has earned Medicare’s five-star rating for rehabilitative care.
“The most frequent comment I hear from those who opt to streamline and simplify their lives is ‘I wish we had done this years ago.' Choosing an all-inclusive home frees residents not only from chores and upkeep and busy work, but from worry. They are able to spend time on activities they really enjoy — friends, travel, grandchildren, hobbies. They become more independent and no longer have to concern themselves about ‘what if’ scenarios.”
The nonprofit Epworth Villa was founded in 1990 by the United Methodist Church. Its 40-acre campus, which includes landscaped gardens, walking paths and a stocked fishing pond, is located on the southwest corner of NW 150th and Penn in Oklahoma City.
