Senior Living Community Services & Amenities

As individuals, we all have our own preferences, interests, and ways we like to spend our time.
Moving to a senior living community shouldn’t mean giving up your independence. At the Terrace, you’ll find no constraints to living your preferred lifestyle—whether that’s time spent in the Columbia community, meeting your neighbors through social activities, or indulging in ample me-time.

What Sets Our Senior Living Community Apart

At our senior living community, we provide many services and amenities so you can fill your days with what you love! We’re known for our variety of activities and opportunities to get involved, including getaways to top destinations around Missouri, an exceptional choir, and weekly activity themes. Here’s a little bit more about what makes us stand out against other senior living communities:

New and Weekly Activities

At the Terrace, we value a fun environment filled with activities that bring the community together! We’ll encourage you to learn something new all while empowering you to care for your overall well-being—including mental, physical, and emotional health! Our activities also adapt to our residents’ interests, meaning we’ll make changes to ensure we’re keeping up with the times.

Activities List
  • Exciting new exercise classes, including Tai Chi and Senior Salsa.
  • Live entertainment, including local and out of town bands.
  • Opportunities for mental exercise through brain games.
  • Fun social activities, including movies, bingo, and bridge.
  • Mental exercise and learning opportunities, including a mobile library, educational presentations, and discussion groups (research a new topic, ponder on it, then come back to share your views and gain new perspectives).
  • Clubs to bring together those with common interests, like creative writing groups, book clubs, and the Terrace Singers choir! Our Terrace Singer choir is a huge hit—they meet once a week to practice select themed music and draw crowds who adore their performances. Anyone is welcome to join these clubs to find community and share what they love.
  • Regularly scheduled transportation for banking, shopping, medical appointments, and church services. Special transportation needs can usually be accommodated with advanced planning.

The Terrace Retirement Community is conveniently located in the Columbia community so you have access to all the city has to offer. Columbia is a bustling town, with an abundance of nature areas, shopping, golf courses, and Missouri University—an NCAA Division 1 school with a lively fan base and top-tier athletic program.
