This month paints a vivid canvas of colors and cultural traditions as people come together to celebrate the arrival of autumn and herald Hispanic Heritage Month. At La Posada, a premier luxury senior living community nestled in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens, the season takes on special significance — honoring the invaluable contributions and influence of Latinx individuals on our country’s history, culture and achievements.
“We cherish diversity, and Hispanic Heritage Month allows us to celebrate the richness of culture, history and shared experiences,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director. “La Posada takes immense pride not only in its Spanish influence—reflected in our architectural aesthetics and diverse cultural events throughout the month—but also in celebrating our residents and their myriad stories and backgrounds.”
Heather Liddle, president of the Resident Association, represents one of those stories.
“Having the ability to share where one has come from is such an important part of life,” she said. “I was born in Chile, lived in Brazil and studied in England. Where I began my journey and where it has led me is something I don’t take for granted, and it’s a privilege to live somewhere where stories like mine are celebrated.”
Architecturally, La Posada embodies the essence of Spanish culture. The thoughtfully designed community boasts elegant Spanish-style exteriors and interiors, characterized by features like the distinctive tile roofing and stucco walls. The community further exudes comfort and style with elegant touches, modern finishes and private balconies that offer captivating water or courtyard views. Residential spaces bear the names of Spain’s scenic cities—Mallorca, Seville, Valencia, for instance—and the community’s five-star chefs frequently craft delicious Spanish cuisine and tapas, delighting residents’ palates. “Our residents from many backgrounds come together to create a vibrant tapestry of cultures, stories and traditions,” Cadiere added.
Those who call La Posada home attest to finding a “second family”—a place where they can share and discover a sense of belonging that transcends borders. The friendships that blossom serve as a testament to the power of shared experiences and mutual respect. Resident Relations Director Yolanda Santiago emphasized the importance of this connection. “Observing Hispanic Heritage Month with our residents is a wonderfully unique experience that allows us to learn more about one another and appreciate the bonds and connections we share,” Santiago said.
Lili Perez, director of admissions and marketing for the Health Center, highlighted the community’s diverse programming that engages residents “at all levels” to promote a holistic approach to well-being. Alongside a rich variety of resort-style amenities and activities, La Posada offers multiple dining venues featuring chef-prepared meals made fresh daily, tranquil pools, walking trails, a relaxing spa and two fitness centers with beneficial exercise classes.
Additionally, the community’s convenient location near popular Palm Beach Gardens attractions, upscale and casual dining spots, museums, shopping, the symphony, the Gardens Mall, theaters and the beautiful beach, just minutes away, enhances the residents’ overall experience. For golf enthusiasts, the PGA National Golf Club membership (included for residents) allows players to enjoy golf or croquet a mere five minutes away.
Residents at La Posada can relish the pleasures of maintenance-free living and immerse themselves in culture, forge lifelong friendships and savor each precious moment. It’s a place where every day is a celebration of heritage, friendship and joy.
