In This Issue…

The past few months, many of us have spent countless hours in our homes, cleaning out closets & drawers, making our homes more comfortable, redecorating or painting a space to bring it back to life. Sadly, others, who are alone, long for social interaction with family and friends, are now realizing that choosing to live in a “community” may have served them well. Lots of questions come to mind:

•  Should I move now or wait?
•  Do I move into an apartment or choose a Life Plan community?
•  What type of community would give me what I need to thrive?

The Retirement Resource Guide is filled with many choices to help you navigate through this important decision. In this issue, we highlight Brookridge Retirement Community, a premier Life Plan Community, located in Winston Salem, as they re-design their Garden Homes to better serve future residents. We also learn about the luxury amenities available at Berkley Hall Management complexes.

While our print guide is packed full of information to help you in your search for a new lifestyle, you will find the Retirement Resource to be an even deeper resource for learning about communities and services. The communities have photo galleries, some with videos and tours so you can dive into their community from the comfort of your home.

I encourage you to stay informed and do your homework when choosing a community. Please stay SAFE during the next few months.
