What we do

Our Services

EMPLOYMENT

Ever talk of what you want in life only to be told by others that it is not possible? At Kaposia, we mean what we say. We will work with you and your ideas to help them become reality. As we help you walk through the Discovery Process you will begin to flesh out your desires and put them into the proper perspective.

RETIREMENT

At Kaposia, retiring doesn’t mean an end but rather a new beginning with different experiences. We have a vital community volunteer program, various learning, recreational and leisure opportunities and other ways that we help you stay active. You won’t have to wonder about how to fill your time, we'll help you see all the ways you can!

Get Involved

Volunteers are happier and healthier than non-volunteers. In fact, during later life, volunteering is even more beneficial for one's health than exercising and eating well.

Older people who volunteer remain physically functional longer, have more robust psychological well-being, and live longer.
