Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.
That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.

There’s so much to explore in the Evans area and Washington Commons makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Popular destinations include monthly restaurant outings and trips to the casino in North Carolina, the canal trip (boat tour) in Augusta, the Singing Christmas Tree, Hamrick's, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Old MacDonald's Fish camp and more.
Life is Never Boring
Washington Common's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
First and second Wednesdays we have musical entertainment. We had to start bringing it in every month as we can get up to 65 residents at both events. We have poker Night Tuesdays and Thursdays, and devotional group that meets Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
We have raised garden beds for the residents. They plant flowers and some tomatoes, and the residents love to eat them!
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Washington Commons. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
Once a quarter an animal adoption agency visits and brings animals to socialize with our residents. All residents know Pineapple the cat, and a fox and deer play in our back yard from time to time. Many residents join each other to walk their dogs.
Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi
Washington Commons residents enjoy WiFi access in the common area, as well as access to a computer in the activities room. Our residents choose what they would like to do. For example, one resident shares his Alexa device and plays music for all.

Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
We occasionally hold food cook-offs where chefs "battle" each other to see who can create a better meal. We also hold spotlight events where we build "food trucks" and enjoy international cuisine.

At Washington Commons, many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. For example, we have a drop stitch group that makes hats for the hospitals, and our residents volunteer at a local elementary school. In addition, we did a back-to-school drive and are currently doing a food drive and Toys for Tots.
We have a mom's group that comes in to craft with our residents and bring their kids for a safe trunk or treat. Multiple Baptist churches come to sing, and volunteer spend time with the residents.
