Dow Rummel Village has implemented a strategy that gives people the opportunity to change the way they age. This proven concept includes health club-style amenities and services that preserve and improve our resident’s quality of life. Residents have access to the Wellness Center which include an Aquatic Center, a newly updated Fitness Center, and a private classroom.

In addition to this beautiful wellness facility, we provide guidance to ensure safe and effective protocol for our residents. Our professional staff offer regular assessments and programming to improve critical areas related to resident independence.

We have so appreciated the spiritual care that Dow Rummel Village provides and especially the fact that there are pastors on campus all the time. Our years in the ministry have given back to us a deep sense of gratitude for those that helped us understand how our overall wellness is often dependent on our spiritual wellness.
