Settle In

Making the move to a senior living community is a big deal, but as our residents will attest, it can be a great decision.

 

Evelyn was in the neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon getting her car washed, and she stopped in for information about Crestview Senior Living. I happened to be at the community, and I gave Evelyn a tour and invited her back for lunch. Several weeks later Evelyn and her daughter returned to the community for lunch and a tour. This was the start of a one-year relationship helping her understand why she should move to Crestview. 

Evelyn was lonely since her husband passed away. As time went on, I knew she wanted to move, but she was giving her daughter and me excuse after excuse to stay in her home. One day she said, “I think I am ready to move to Crestview but, I would like all new furniture for my apartment.” 

Evelyn, her daughter and I went shopping and set up delivery dates for furniture. It was one year from that first day Evelyn walked into Crestview. Evelyn has been a resident at Crestview since 2012, and she still tells me how happy she is to be here and thanks me for not giving up on her!
