Live on vacation and experience the eight dimensions of a healthful life at Jubilation by Silver Companies

“Robust” doesn’t even begin to cover it.

For members looking for some fun at Jubilation by Silver Companies, the 207-luxury-apartment home resort-style 55+ community nestled along the Rappahannock River, entertainment and fitness opportunities are vast.

From morning to evening, the year-round social calendar is chock full of programs, parties, lectures, food and wine tastings, dance classes, field trips, concerts and fitness activities. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

If there’s even a spark of an idea for something new to be added to the endless options, members just need to talk to full-time entertainment director Eric Brouman — the guru of fun.




An entertainer on a cruise ship for nearly 25 years, Brouman understands the need for action and adventure, and lots of it. Members are not on the high seas with Brouman, but his Jubilation activity calendar rivals anything found in a vacation hotspot. Grounded in Jubilation’s “8 dimensions of wellness,” members can participate in an abundance of activities that nurture wellness from all angles: intellectual, career, physical, social, spiritual, emotional, environmental and financial.

“The only challenge we have here is trying not to overlap activities when we’re scheduling them,” Brouman said. “Our members have a wide range of interests, talents and experiences that we can tap into, and our calendar reflects this immense diversity. It’s a year-round activity calendar full of events that cater to all these whims.”

For example, Brouman said the community offers not just one style of yoga class, but five — mat, chair, floor, gentle and regular — to accommodate all skill levels. His line dance class has increased in popularity so much that he had to schedule it more frequently. The jujitsu class, which is offered two to three times a month, is packed. A renowned actress received a standing ovation from a packed theater of fans after a recent performance. The trip to see Cirque du Soleil is already full.


Some activities are even taught by the members themselves, Brouman said. One, a former teacher, hosts an extremely entertaining historical class every weekend. Topics range from “The American West Cowboy and Cattle Drives” to “The California Gold Rush” and more. The sessions include actual lesson plans, videos and talkbacks. Another member, an author, teaches a weekly writing and journaling class, offering tips to those who love to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.

“Physical health is so much more than nutrition and exercise,” Brouman said. “Our holistic, eight-dimensional approach not only helps individuals physically but also engages the mind, provides a sense of spiritual well-being and encourages everyone to live their best well-rounded and balanced jubilant life.”

Brouman feels the environmental component to the eight dimensions of well-being is an integral part of the lifestyle at Jubilation as well.


“It definitely sets the tone,” he said. “There’s bright lights, lots of sunlight, smiles all around, open spaces to host social get-togethers and just an overall upbeat atmosphere.”

Members have access to the community’s 20,000-square-foot clubhouse, stunning indoor and outdoor heated saltwater pools, state-of-the-art fitness center and spa facilities, a tapas restaurant and wine bar, on-site concierge medical services, designer-inspired apartments, coffee bars, entertainment lounges and amphitheater, outdoor fire pits, bocce and pickleball courts and so much more.
