Programs with Purpose

At Cascades of the Sierra, our residents come to us with a lifetime of likes and dislikes. We learn their interests and preferences and create enriching programs and fun entertainment based on what they enjoy. Our goal is to add meaning and purpose to life, and we realize that means something different for everyone.

Maybe you enjoy educational programs like a computer class or learning a foreign language. Maybe it’s a cultural program like an art or music class. Or maybe it’s strictly fun social programs like a gardening class, movie night, happy hour or a game of Bridge. Whatever you enjoy, our full-time arts and entertainment staff make sure we’re offering a host of enriching programs that meet your interests. Our close proximity to Reno and Tahoe makes it easy to spend a day skiing, hiking, biking and enjoying all the natural beauty the area has to offer.
