Author Your Life
Wherever you are on life's journey, live the best life possible!
Author Your Life is Lyngblomsten’s philosophy on living well. It’s about aging vibrantly, living fully, having purpose, and being as well as possible in mind, body, and spirit—at every age.
Author Your Life is meant for anyone connected with Lyngblomsten, including our residents, tenants, participants, family members, volunteers, employees, and community partners.
We invite you to ask yourself:
- How are you authoring your life?
- How are you helping others to author theirs?
- How could a Lyngblomsten opportunity or connection help you author your life?
