About The Spinney At Van Dyke

What makes The Spinney an Active Adult Community?

As time passes, the realities of aging expose the downsides of home ownership and may create pressure to move.  But where to?  For many reasons – sentimentality, resistance to change, a lack of better options – people continue living in homes that no longer suit their lifestyle. 

Our Spinney communities are for active adults, 55+, where residents live amongst like-minded peers in a lifestyle-focused environment.  Designed for those “55 and Better” who desire independence without the burdens of homeownership, a Spinney community allows you to regain time back to explore hobbies and embrace your life to the fullest.  

As an active adult community, a Spinney community provides many lifestyle amenities.  Our communities are ideal for active adults who manage daily household and personal care tasks on their own.

Outside of the comforts of your cottage, our signature lifestyle and wellness program, SpinneyLife, is at your fingertips to support your goals.  Engaging in SpinneyLife will truly improve your experience at The Spinney!  

Welcome home to wellness.
