Flexibility to Customize Your Care at Orchid Terrace

Residents appreciate the freedom and flexibility our independent living communities offer as needs around personal care and medical assistance change. Choosing a la carte from third-party health care and personal care providers* -- many with offices right inside the community -- gives them the power to choose their providers and obtain similar services as they would in a higher level of care like assisted living, but without giving up the independence, warm community of friends, and fun-loving atmosphere they enjoy so much.

Interests and Activities at Orchid Terrace

Local Beauty Care

The convenience of Orchid Terrace’s on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Outside clients are welcome into the salon. A message therapist also works out of the salon and is available for appointments.


Fitness Classes

Orchid Terrace residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

The community prides itself on valuing fitness. Residents here design and lead their own classes, which often focus on upper-body and core strengthening exercises. A ballet bar instructor teaches a class that focuses on balance. There's also a walking club that goes out on regular walks, exercise and enjoying time with friends at the same time is always a win.


Nutritious Dining for Seniors

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Orchid Terrace's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

The chef hosts a monthly roundtable to get feedback and ideas from residents. For all the meat lovers, the chef slow cooks the meat, and uses signature rubs to enhance the flavor. And if you haven't tried the apple dumplings you are seriously missing out!



Local Area Activities

There’s so much to explore in the St. Louis area and Orchid Terrace 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.

You can join the group that goes out for regular lunch outings, and make friends with fellow foodies! Some of the popular bus excursions are to the Casino, winery, farm, brewery, chocolate factory, botanical gardens, animal park (Lone Elk), and Christmas Light Exhibits.

Social Activities for Seniors

Orchid Terrace’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.

Groups of residents love to gather for movie nights, or to watch big sports games. There are also regular game nights with foster kids which is always so heartwarming and special.




Pet Friendly

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Orchid Terrace. 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.


Community Technology

Orchid Terrace is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

Our Resident Experience Coordinator runs Tech Tuesdays. New avenues of technology are introduced and residents can get help with their devices.


Independent Senior Travel

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.

Keeping Our Community Healthy

Orchid Terrace operates with extensive protocols that mitigate the spreading of COVID-19 and transparently shares the number of active resident cases, updated weekdays by 11 A.M. Eastern Standard Time.
