Life at Avenu

We often say – You’ll love the Avenu lifestyle. So, what is life at Avenu all about? 

Avenu is for when ready to relax without slowing down.

For those who want to stay active, stay social, and remember a time when “neighbor” was just another word for “friend”.

Avenu is so much more than an active adult community, it’s where you gather for morning coffee, an afternoon card game, a glass of wine by the fire. Where you can try something new and keep all your favorite hobbies.  

We coordinate daily activities, classes, and events to keep residents active – both physically and socially. Whether you’re looking to keep up your daily fitness routine or get started with a new one, we work with local trainers and health professionals to offer a wide range of classes and activities. From movie nights to nature walks, we know it’s important for you to feel engaged and have a sense of community in your home. If this sounds like you, then you’ll love the Avenu lifestyle too.

For the gardeners, the card players, the chefs, the knitters, the runners, the readers, the avid anything-ers; for the experts, the novices and everyone in between, Avenu is for you.

Dawn Chenevert:

Dawn, Avenu’s Property Manager has over 25 years of experience in residential property management, telling us she “fell into this career by accident and have loved it ever since.” Dawn is excited that National Development and its partners have created this 62+ community that focuses on active living. “Throughout my years of experience, I have found that people typically go from home ownership or apartment living to assisted living; there seems to be no in between. There is a large population of people who are simply not ready for assisted living and crave a social environment, that’s where Avenu comes in.” She is very happy to have been chosen to lead this new community and to provide services with a personal touch.
