This first $25.00 session is the only administration fee you’ll ever see at the SIM Gym! Month by month membership dues with options for two-week to two-month notified holds for vacations, and no hidden fees or dues, make membership flexible and affordable.
Our location provides easy access to seniors with city bus route stops, free parking and on-site amenities such as a café, meeting rooms, used clothing store, adult day program, bathing program, chapel and beauty salon, to name a few.
We like to think of St. Joseph’s Villa as a one stop resource for aging adults in our community. Come and check us out on the second floor, behind the main reception desk.
