      What our residents are saying…

      “Each time I drive past my old house I say, ‘oh, I’m so glad I’m not here.’ We had a lot of trees that needed extra care, and ivy climbing up where it shouldn’t have been. Even poison ivy growing in the garden. It was too much! To tell you the truth, I believe this kind of lifestyle is one reason why people are living longer. We don’t really have anything to worry about. We don’t have to buy anything. I feel like we’re an intelligent group of people who would rather spend their money on something besides paying a large entrance fee on an apartment in another community.”
