“It’s a new day every day at Ingleside at King Farm,” says Executive Director Michelle Kraus. “Our community exudes warmth. We pride ourselves on the spirit of giving and the gifts of listening, learning and partnerships with our residents. Our silver linings in 2020 are cultivating a collaborate village and celebrating our successes.”

Continuing its tradition of offering exceptional engaged living, Ingleside at King Farm’s newest addition, Gardenside, is filling up with new residents who are bringing fresh energy to an already active community. “Our residents tell us how happy they are to be here,” says Executive Director Michelle Kraus. “They feel safe, cared about and involved.”

In advance of Gardenside, with its 120 stylish, independent living apartments and 32 assisted living memory support suites, the Center for Healthy Living was established. The Center for Healthy Living was designed to promote the seven dimensions of wellness: physical, social, intellectual, environmental, emotional, occupational and spiritual. Visual arts are explored there and celebrated through exhibitions and special events. There’s an art studio, classrooms and instructional space, game and card room, and a meditation space.

Al fresco and indoor dining venues were expanded to accommodate more guests.
With innovative spirit, IKF embraced technology and created a local channel to stream all manner of information and activities, including exercise sessions, lectures and performances. Good Morning Ingleside airs twice weekly, delivering community news and announcements from the executive director and different departments. The musical Hamilton recently aired, as did the movie Beloved. The programs and events that are selected by the residents support continued engagement and opportunities for growth.

Ingleside’s team of professionals includes a cultural arts manager, fitness manager, activities specialists, music and recreational therapists. Their ever-expanding roster of activities and programs are all about helping people grow, feel excited and know they belong to something special, no matter what the circumstances.
