In This Issue…

We are certainly living in historic times and have so many messages in front of us daily that our heads are spinning. Now more than ever, I find myself wanting to quiet down all the “noise” and regroup. Yearning to be outside in the fresh air, spending time tinkering in the garden, or sitting on the porch with my husband while watching the boats go by helps me to regroup and balance my life. The extra time being at home is allowing me time to think. I am not getting any younger and before you know it, it will be time to retire. Am I taking the needed steps to reach my goals? Only time will tell.

One question that I do hear a lot lately, is what does the future look like for Retirement Communities? In this issue, we hear from Steve Fleming, CEO of the Well Spring Group and and Derrick Moore, Executive Director, Searstone, in our cover story. Also refer to “A Parting Word” on how communities are responding to COVID-19.
