- Getting Started
- The Commons
The doors are wide open - you decide which ones to enter. Because Cordia at Grand Traverse Commons is shaped to support intentional living and the pursuit of personal growth, it's structured as a world in which you can thrive, where stimulating conversation,a lively card game, a class in Tai Chi or French Creole cooking-or perhaps a game of Wii bowling-can be part of your every day.
What interests do you want to explore? At Cordia, the opportunities to pursue longtime passions - and ignite new ones - are endless. Prefer to keep to yourself? That's okay too. Cordia is here to support the lifestyle that makes you, you. Whether solitary or social, you'll have at your fingertips a comprehensive, 42-unit curriculum designed to speak to the five areas deemed critical to achieving a fulfilling, independent life:
With an eye to variety and flexibility, Cordia's programs are designed to have both broad and unique appeal, welcoming you to develop and deepen your interests - individually or collectively, as you prefer. Each day, each week, each season, will bring new program options to Cordia's campus. Unlike many senior communities, you'll be able to explore beyond Cordia's well-appointed walls in absolute comfort and ease; elegant private transportation will be provided to take you to the many rich offerings in and around Traverse City.
Perhaps you're in the mood for a leisurely swim at the community's pool? Or a film viewing at the city's historic State Theatre? Maybe a night out with Lady Luck and friends at nearby Turtle Creek Casino? Or simply an afternoon under the pines enjoying a symphony at the world-famous Interlochen Academy for the Arts? Cordia will ensure you have an array of on- and off-campus options from which to choose - and the means to safely, comfortably, and easily access them all.
