Holiday Retirement: Home from Day One
We all know that undergoing any form of change can bring about feelings of uncertainty, anxiety and fear. But what we often forget is that change can also spark a sense of exhilaration, hope and renewed energy. These positive feelings are what we strive to foster when you make the decision to move to a senior living community.
Making the move is an opportunity to thrive and make the most of your retirement years. It’s having more time to do the things you love most because we handle the cooking, housekeeping and maintenance. It’s having the independence to get up and go whenever you want because you have access to transportation. It’s enjoying good experiences with good company because activities and friends are always just a few steps away. It’s calling your new community “home.”
At Holiday Retirement, we create an atmosphere where you feel welcomed, included and empowered, right from the get-go. That way, as you embark on new adventures, any feelings of nervousness will be quickly replaced by excitement.
But don’t just take our word for it. Hear directly from new residents how their first few days at Holiday Retirement have been extra special:
“When I first came to Birch Heights, I went out to the courtyard and immediately started to cry because of how beautiful it all was. The people are also so friendly. My ambassador, Priscilla, knew my name and had a great smile that made me feel comfortable from the beginning. I knew it was home.” -Evelyn P., Holiday Retirement’s Birch Heights
“My community hosted a ‘Welcome Home’ event and invited members of the choir I have been in for 18 years, Bella Vista Women’s Chorus, to attend and perform. They all also presented me a plant. I loved being with both old friends and new friends.” -Elaine Detlefsen, Holiday Retirement’s The Gardens at Arkanshire
“What I liked most about my first few months at the community was the friendly reception I received from both staff and fellow residents. Plus, I got to play lots of bridge.” -Marica Webber, Holiday Retirement’s The Springs of Escondido
“The friendly residents made my transition a smooth one.” -Jane, Holiday Retirement’s Westgate Village
“The thing that was, and still is, my favorite part of my first few days was the dining room, because there is a table that is always inviting. Fellow residents always say they will pull up an extra chair for me to sit with them, so I always feel welcome.” Carroll S., Birch Heights
