Riverside California retirement communityAt Raincross Village, a new retirement community in Riverside, California, active seniors can exercise their passion for living. Nestled in the heart of the city's senior activity area, this one-of-a-kind village setting is designed exclusively for 55+ adults. The craftsman-style architecture of rental cottages in this real estate community reflects the city's rich architectural heritage, and a network of meandering pathways links the village's many greenscape areas.

The Janet Goeske Senior Center

Raincross Village is only a short walk from the renowned Janet Goeske Senior Center, whose mission statement is: "To provide seniors/disabled seniors opportunities to continue an active, rich and productive life through a constantly expanding program of travel, health, education, recreation and social activities, in pleasant surroundings and inexpensively as possible." Operated by a non-profit corporation and requiring only a modest annual membership fee, the center is an incredible resource that offers something for everyone.

The Goeske Center's numerous clubs and scheduled activities cover nearly every interest, ranging from bridge, Scrabble, chess and other games to creative pursuits such as painting and pottery-making, calligraphy, needlework and quilting. While many members participate in fitness classes, tennis, yoga or Tai Chi, others get involved in all types of dancing, musical groups or clubs dedicated to gardening, reading and discussing current events. The center's Travel Department schedules short excursions to Southern California shopping, entertainment and cultural destinations, along with one- to three-day trips to places like Las Vegas, Scottsdale and San Luis Obispo. Long-distance trips and cruises are also popular. Special events run the gamut from the Annual Health Fair to weekly movies and monthly birthday celebrations.

From retirement-oriented groups like AARP to support groups of every type, the center offers opportunities to learn, grow and share ideas with people in similar circumstances. Members can take advantage of many free services, including everything from video rentals to health screenings to legal consultations.
