Activities & Outings

The lifestyle at Bentley Commons means our residents are engaged in a wide range of fun activities, from entertainment to enrichment. The goal is to help our residents be as active as they can and want to be. And, aside from organized activities, our community houses a parlor and game room, a pub, art studio, and evening movies in the theater so that residents can do what they want when they want. Whether it’s a lifelong passion with friends or a new skill being taught by Keene State University students and faculty,  our residents will have diverse and constant opportunities to engage with others, enjoy themselves, and continue to grow as a person.
