Ingleside at King Farm

Kate Kavitski, MA, RDT, CDP | Director of Life Enrichment

701 King Farm Blvd.




Educated in psychology, theater and drama therapy, Kate Kavitski came to Ingleside at King Farm with almost a decade of experience. Her vision for her role as director of life enrichment is guided by what she refers to as “The four C’s:” being collaborative, community-centered, creative and consequential.

Ingleside at King Farm’s new state-of-the-art Center for Healthy Living opened this spring. Its amenities include a cultural arts center for performances and special events, an art studio and gallery, classrooms, a game and card room, and fitness studio. New memory support residences opened this spring to the greater community. Ingleside at King Farm also offers Ingleside Engaged, a social day program open to those in the surrounding areas and serves people with neurocognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Kavitski works with a team of professionals including a cultural arts manager, fitness manager, activities specialists, music and recreational therapists. Their ever-expanding roster of activities and programs are not about keeping busy. The goal is to help people grow, feel inspired and know that they belong to something special.

Professionals who inform and entertain are vetted and booked by one of the many resident committees. Ingleside at King Farm attracts active people who become involved, some in the scope of their past profession; others devote themselves to new hobbies.

All of these services and programs are available to Ingleside residents. Gardenside, Ingleside at King Farm’s newest addition will bring more residents to the community, and includes 120 new independent living apartment homes opening this fall.

“Relationships are at the core of life enrichment programs,” says Kavitski, “reminding us to ask how we can creatively utilize the strengths of our community. That’s a good guide for promoting meaningful new possibilities.”
