What's in a name? In the case of Eau Claire - whose name is a French word for "Clear Waters", there's quite a bit. This western Wisconsin town of some 66,000 residents is a city that is essentially built on a strong adherence to nature, which is something that could be ascertained by the meaning of its name. But you don't need to know a foreign tongue to appreciate just how pretty things are in this town, nor do you need such proficiency to pick up on the fact that the city comes fully equipped with the good-natured, rustic ambiance that is found in the upper Midwest. This spirit is certainly evident when you take a look at the vast number of senior communities that exist within Eau Claire's borders.
One of the main reasons why Eau Claire carries such a strong adherence to nature can be found by taking a look at the city's own topography. The city itself was built on the confluence of the Eau Claire and Chippewa rivers, and the waterways that flow through the town still play a vital role in how this city and its residents operates. Their love of nature hasn't gone unnoticed, either - Eau Claire has been designated a "Tree City" by the Arbor Day Foundation since 1980.
Another part of Eau Claire's appeal is the fact that it tends to embrace its Midwestern spirit in ways that arguably wouldn't make sense in other parts of the country. For example, the city is known as "the Horseradish Capital of the World" - a distinction that feels right coming from this part of the country. It is also the Kubb Capital of North America, referring to a quirky lawn game that involves throwing batons at wooden blocks. The attitude and ambiance that flow from these types of distinctions may be quite appealing to seniors that find a great sense of appeal in the Midwestern lifestyle.
From a more practical standpoint, it should be noted that Eau Claire's cost of living is also less than the national average. This metric could be rather appealing to golden agers that are on fixed incomes, as the city may give them a means in which they can stretch their dollar further than other towns.
It may be easy to say that the senior living communities in Eau Claire provide a safe and well-kept residential space for seniors to live. However, that's just the proverbial tip of the iceberg. On a deeper level, these facilities provide a means to where seniors can enjoy their lives they way they want to as much as they possibly can. These facilities don't do this with smoke and mirrors, either; rather, they achieve this by letting them to simply live their days as self-reliantly as possible, regardless of what stage of life they happen to be in.
Furthermore, these fully accredited places do what they can to encourage seniors to be active and reject a sedentary lifestyle. They accomplish this by making it easy for seniors to engage in peer-to-peer interactions with fellow seniors in an environment that is safe and convenient. The connections that can ultimately be forged from these types of encounters can be the basis for various friendships and relationships to blossom. These relationships can ultimately make it easier for seniors to get out and explore all that Eau Claire has to offer.
And when it comes to activities in Eau Claire, the geography of the land must be reiterated. Indeed, there are a host of vibrant parks that are built along the banks of the two rivers that flow through town. There are also parks that are built along the banks of the creeks that cut through the landscape. These parks are gathering places for residents to enjoy the outdoors or playing a game of kubb. The city is also home to the trail head of the Chippewa River State Trail; a recreational trail that meanders along the lower course of the Chippewa River.
Considering how much of the outdoors ties into the active lifestyle of the Eau Claire resident, it nearly goes without saying that living a life based around activity and liveliness are musts. Without living an active lifestyle, most of the appeal to this fine Midwestern city would be lost. Thankfully, the senior living communities in Eau Claire are designed to ensure that their senior residents can fully embrace and enjoy all of the goodness that this unique city has to offer.
