When Brenda and her father began their search for a retirement community, they knew their first stop had to be Chartwell Carrington House.
“We selected Carrington House in Mission for Dad based on glowing recommendations from a friend,” Brenda begins. “The staff impressed right away during our tour. Friendly, knowledgeable, truly genuine. Equally notable was the impression the residents made on us during our first visit. All were friendly, welcoming, helpful, and well cared for.”
As society continues to shift back to pre-pandemic norms, older adults who have delayed a decision to downsize or seek a living arrangement that provides more freedom from the responsibilities of home ownership have begun to consider their options again.
There is no denying that for many, the prospect of less time and energy spent on home and property maintenance and more opportunities to socialize, pursue interests, travel, or try something new have endured, if not increased because of the past years.
A key benefit of life in a retirement residence is having consistent access to staff who are devoted to helping seniors live worry-free. “My Mom has thrived since she moved to Carrington House. All the staff and management share a single goal of Making Peoples’ Lives Better,” shares fellow adult child, Michael. “Carrington House is a calm and comforting refuge for your loved ones.”
Located in the tight-knit community of Mission, Chartwell Carrington House is a quaint, welcoming retirement residence known for their variety of quality care and service options, including independent living and dedicated assisted living accommodations.
As for the social life? “Dad gives high praise for the food. Bus trips are varied and interesting. Summer picnics, museums, even a tour of an orchid nursery! Every week there’s walking group, exercise classes, music performances…Dad is very consistent in going to the movies onsite. The theatre is very comfortable and fresh popped corn is available,” continues Brenda.
She concludes, “Dad has made many friends and is much more active in the Carrington community than he was in his single-family home. I highly recommend Carrington House for any senior who needs a little extra support while enjoying their independence. Five-star senior home!”
