Intellectual Wellness means embracing lifelong learning and the mind’s desire for challenge, inspiration and imagination.


We like to say the one thing you won’t find at The Alexander is boredom. Our residents embrace life and we’re committed to helping them do just that. Keeping the brain active and engaged is part of living here. Our residents have the opportunity to take up new hobbies. They can learn to paint, become amateur photographers or learn a new language. And outside of creative pursuits, they enjoy all the cultural activities in Bend and Central Oregon that keep the mind healthy and fit, from world-class theater and music to outstanding local festivals and museums.
