One definition of a “ chapter ” is “ a period of time or an episode in a person ’ s life .”
What chapter of life are you in ? Are you or a family member considering a potential move to a retirement community ? If so , now is the time to do your research and write your own chapter .
A Continuing Care Retirement Community ( CCRC ) is a fantastic opportunity for many adults 62 or better who are independent and active today but who desire peace of mind in knowing that someday , should they ever need it , quality healthcare services will be available .
Further , those who are considering downsizing to simplify their lives and are ready to enjoy fewer responsibilities when it comes to ongoing home maintenance and repairs should definitely consider a CCRC .
Prudent consumers will do their homework in advance . Visit , study and learn about the various types of retirement options available in your area .
Here are a few comments from some Cypress of Raleigh members as they reflect on this current chapter in their lives :
· “ I have easy access to so many things . I enjoy dining a few nights each week with friends and family . I have expanded my knowledge and interests with the library and lectures . I enjoy the wellness classes and the indoor pool is fantastic . I even have my own garden area to grow my tomatoes !”
· “ We did a lot of research before choosing The Cypress , and we were told that one of the best things about the community was the people who live there . They were right — everyone is so welcoming ! The part they left out is how dedicated the staff is to please their members .”
· “ Meals have become so much more enjoyable . We never dread the question , ‘ What do you want to do for dinner ?’”
· “ The only thing we would change is that we would have come sooner . I don ’ t know why we hesitated to make this decision .”
· “ In my book of life , living at The Cypress has been one of the best chapters .”
I welcome the opportunity to visit with you and share more about what The Cypress of Raleigh has to offer . Let ’ s talk about possibilities for your next chapter !
