Happy Senior Thankful for Help with Orange Park Retirement Communities Search

A Real-life letter to the Seniors Guide, thankful for help in Orange Park Retirement Communities Search

I’m sure some of you are thinking of leaving your home and moving into a senior retirement community. It’s a big decision; at least it was for me. There are so many nice choices. I looked at retirement communities in Jacksonville, Orange Park and St. Augustine but I also looked at continuing care, some people call it progressive care. I can stay here and get extra in home care help if I should ever need it.

I’m getting ahead of myself, let me back up, prior to this my husband and I had lived in our home for 47 years. We raised our four daughters there and then they moved a ways away. After my husband died I thought it would be best if I lived closer to them.

Sharon Miller from Jacksonville thanks Northeast Florida online senior resource guide for help finding retirement communities in Orange Park, Florida.While visiting my youngest daughter in Orange Park, she suggested we go visit some senior retirement communities and continuing, progressive care communities in around town: St. Augustine and Jacksonville, just to see what they were like. I figured that just visiting couldn’t hurt!  I got lucky because, after visiting several senior retirement communities in the Orange area, one we visited seemed to have everything I needed, all that I wanted and immediately seemed like a place where I could feel “at home”.

I must say that all the senior retirement communities in Orange Park we visited were very nice and clean.

Also, I am a person who hates a “hard sell” and was pleasantly surprised when that never happened.  I really felt they genuinely wanted to show me the retirement lifestyle at their communities and let me determine if it was the right one for me. Also I had lunch at the places I visited- most could be gourmet restaurants!

I sold my house, luckily, quite quickly and the new retirement community was able to get me a one bedroom apartment that really fits my new, simpler lifestyle. Clearing out the house seemed like an insurmountable task but with the help of a downsizing company and my children we did it in a day or so and were even able to help out some local flood victims with a furniture donation. That felt good, but even better was how amazed I was about being hugely relieved not to have the burden of ALL THAT STUFF! As many memories as there were in that big house I am glad not to be a slave to it any longer -no more worrying if the sink will leak, or there would be an electrical problem and NO MORE YARD WORK!

OurSeniorsGuide.com helps seniors find retirement communities in Orange Park and around Northeast Florida.In my new Orange Park retirement community I’ve quickly made new friends.

Also, I have so many advantages – I am able to go to my grandchildren’s volleyball and soccer games and even invite them here for dinner in the private dining room! I never thought I could afford such a grand retirement lifestyle, but I sure could!

I have made many new friends here and there are always a lot of activities available for free if I want to participate.  I did leave a few good friends behind but there is always the telephone, a letter or an occasional visit. I love my senior retirement community apartment and I’m so happy I decided to make the move!

I just wanted the people at the Seniors Guide to know that they were a huge part of making my decisions about what senior retirement communities in Orange Park to visit.

The Seniors Guide is a simple reference tool and it seemed as if it was written just for me!
