In a quiet St. Louis, MO, enclave where the Meramec meets the mighty Mississippi lies the retirement community of Orchid Terrace. Just 15 miles from downtown, Orchid Terrace residents enjoy an active senior living experience in a suburban setting close to the vibrancy of Missouri’s most populous and dynamic region.

Within a mile of the independent living community, you’ll find several restaurants and markets, as well as amenities like churches and banks. The peaceful and serene Missouri Botanical Garden, the nation's oldest botanical garden, is just 15 miles away. It’s also only 20 minutes to the world-famous Museum at the Gateway Arch. Learn more about the area’s history in the onsite museum. Then step outside to the riverside park where you can pose for a photo in front of the iconic 630-foot monument. 

Orchid Terrace is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2020 Super Star award, and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.

Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site

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 Right at Home

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.


Let Us Serve You

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!



Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

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.

Life is Never Boring

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.




Pets Make Life Better

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.


Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

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.
