“We have learned that moving to a community with opportunities for increased socialization, purposeful activities, and supportive services before you need specific medical and assistance greatly improves and extends the quality of life. I always say ‘Don’t wait; come while you can still fully enjoy it.’ This new and innovative addition to our community is an amenity for our residents to enjoy if they choose to do so, but it is also meant to support and boost our local community. We are excited about all the new possibilities.”
