Wellness Communities are popping up around the country. According to a report by the Global Wellness Institute in 2018, Wellness Communities are designed to support the holistic health of their residents using a holistic approach to maintaining optimal wellness and happiness. This approach encourages an active lifestyle and invites interaction with nature through amenities such as walking trails and gardening spaces. These communities also encourage community engagement. A Wellness Community enhances quality of life and is an investment in health and wellness. Wellness is at the heart of everything we do at Kensington Gardens, Gig Harbor’s only Wellness Lifestyle Community.
Baby Boomers are retiring or scaling back from full time employment and downsizing homes, with Gen X following right behind. Today, a world of possibility awaits us as we determine what our future living options will be. One thing is certain however, these generations have embraced an active lifestyle with fitness, healthy eating, time with family, and travel- defining how we want to spend our retirement years. These lifestyle choices have helped us live longer and healthier lives.
Baby Boomers have high standards when it comes to their homes. After all, we’ve worked hard for many years and built beautiful households. We expect the same in retirement. Luxury finishes, resort style amenities, and environmentally responsible building are core values for many as they seek a community lifestyle that supports their vision.
Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) have been around for more than 70 years. These communities are typically commercial buildings located in commercially zoned areas. It is time for updated, boutique options to become available.
We believe that by planning ahead, you can choose what your future will look like. Baby Boomers don’t want to think about needing care. Right now, we want to play and travel while we are in good health and empty nesters. Our Personalized Care Resort Community (PCRC), allows you to do just that. Enjoy life and have fun, knowing that you have secured your future and financial legacy.
Kensington Gardens Resort Living Community offers two unique and distinctive living options. Resort Living at Kensington Gardens is our own original and innovative concept. Tucked away on our private secluded estate, you’ll find luxurious boutique villa suites and cottages. The statement architecture on the lush grounds is reminiscent of an English Country Estate and offers timeless, livable luxury. Should the need arise, Regent Park at Kensington Gardens specializes in our signature Personalized Care. Our award-winning care is carefully planned to meet each resident’s unique needs. All of our lovely rooms, offer privacy while ensuring warm hospitality and loving care. Each day should be our residents’ best day, and they are thriving while in our care.
Our PCRC model provides peace of mind, knowing that you have selected your forever home and the security of knowing that you have planned your life. An exceptional value, Kensington Garden’s PCRC is priced competitively. The benefits of a PCRC include personalized health and wellness, luxe living- both indoors and out, and warm hospitality.
Everything about Gig Harbor’s only signature Wellness Lifestyle Community promises to enchant.

There are many benefits to moving into Kensington Gardens Resort Living Community. A sense of connection and belonging that comes with living in a community is one compelling reason some people choose this lifestyle. Research suggests the need for having people around to support and engage one another. We are meant to be with others in life. Our activities and interest groups at our community will help to keep our members active and enjoying life while pursuing the pastimes they love.
After years of maintaining a home, living maintenance free will create time to enjoy life. Without the day to day home ownership responsibilities, members have time to focus on a healthy lifestyle in addition to enjoying the hobbies, travel, and enrichment that many have put off for years. Members will feel good about our LEED certification. Our construction will result in healthy, highly efficient green buildings which are environmentally friendly. Just one more legacy to leave behind for future generations.
