The ultimate lifestyle for successful aging.

Through our partnership with Masterpiece Living®, a nationally recognized successful aging initiative, Deerfield residents find abundant wellness opportunities at their fingertips.

Our purposeful programming empowers you to embrace four factors that affect your well-being — intellectual, physical, social and spiritual — rather than just one. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Masterpiece Living takes research-based findings and works with residents to develop a road map for protecting their future health.

We begin with a Masterpiece Living review to explore your personal goals. Together, we’ll identify opportunities you can use to make the pursuit of multidimensional wellness a natural part of your everyday life. The choices are almost limitless, and they’re always yours to make.

Deerfield is the only retirement community in our area to be recognized as a Certified Center for Successful Aging (CSA) by Masterpiece Living®. Fewer than two dozen communities across the country hold this designation — an achievement based on resident and team member engagement, community culture and the integration of purposeful programming.
