They say “with age comes wisdom,” but the youth of today can provide many benefits to seniors. It’s time to start building an intergenerational relationship — whether it’s with your grandkids or community members. Volunteering your time to younger generations can be truly rewarding.
As retired couples enter into senior communities across the country, they bring with them a wealth of stories and memories of times past. Prior to moving into Independent Living at Crescent Point in Cedar Hill, Texas, Ken and Tibbie Cole, now married for 64 years, spent years building their life together and serving every community where they lived. Now, their Capital Senior Living community serves their needs.
Just like raising a child, there is no manual for taking care of your parents. That’s the lesson Karen M. learned before trusting the care of her mother to The Waterford at Levis Commons in Perrysburg, Ohio. Her mother is now thriving in the Assisted Living community — and she gets to see and feel that excitement several times a week during visits with her new extended family.
Each resident comes to a senior living community with his or her own stories. While some share hometowns, milestones and common interests, it’s their stories that make them unique and worth celebrating every day of the year. In honor of Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 11, 2016, we’d like to celebrate one of our veterans from Crescent Point in Cedar Hill, Texas: Troy Carroll.
