We Have A Lot More Living To Do – FROM THE DESK OF SARAH

February 10, 2016

Sarah_JollesIt wasn’t long ago that people were saying, “40 is the new 30.”

Well with today’s growing population of adults 62-plus more vibrant and active than ever before, “80 is the new 60.”

You’re working and travelling longer than your predecessors. You’re  far more  involved with arts, culture, and technology. And you’ve brought the  focus of health and wellness to  the  forefront. Continuing care retirement communities have had to revamp and revitalize to suit the interests, passions and needs of a proactive generation that’s on the move.

This milestone anniversary is a natural time to reflect on where we are headed. Plans continue to provide a fabulous and flexible environment  for  our  residents, understanding that  many are still working or volunteering  in the  greater  community, have numerous  outside interests,  and seek fulfillment from within. Flexible dining options are just one recent way we’ve addressed the lifestyle of those who live here.

We also continue to look at both our programming and facilities. New offerings like continuing education courses, wine tastings, yoga, concerts, and a jazz brunch have become wildly successful. A fully renovated auditorium with state-of-the-art  audio/visual technology is on tap for early 2015, and our apartment homes are being renovated to the highest standards sought by today’s market.

This “Ruby” anniversary is a celebration of not only Rydal Park, but of this new generation – your generation – of people looking to add years to their life and life to their years. I invite you to call me if you want to join “the party,” and see just what we’re all about these days.
