Studies have shown about 25% of our longevity is due to genetics and family history, while 75% is influenced by our lifestyle choices. At Cypress Village, we believe enjoying a happier and healthier life starts with having a dedicated resource to help guide you. That’s why we feature a health and wellness navigator for guidance and assistance with wellness services, logistics and planning, developing unique meal and exercise plans, scheduling appointments, filling out insurance paperwork, scheduling transportation and transitioning into long-term care. Our number one goal is to support you in focusing on what matters most: your health.
