A Comfortable Old Age Is The Reward Of A Well Spent Youth
Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
The AARP describes CCRC Retirement Communities as a place where elderly residents are guaranteed lifetime housing, social opportunities and increased levels of care as needs change. We all know that Florida Retirement Communities have traditionally fit a certain mold - small, maintenance free apartments, communal dining hall, the obligatory shuffleboard court and card rooms. To the staff and management responsible for creating the lifestyle and atmosphere of Devonshire, that just didn’t seem like enough. Not for a generation dubbed our “Greatest Generation”. Not for a population aging with more influence, education, accomplishment and material wealth than any generation before them. With millions of aging Baby Boomers set to move in to Florida Retirement Communities and CCRC’s in the decade ahead, Devonshire wondered: won’t this population, a population who did more, spent more, achieved more, expect, well, more of a CCRC? Yes, Devonshire decided. They would.
If it’s true that as Maurice Chevalier once said, “A comfortable old age is the reward of a well spent youth” then the population at Devonshire spent their youth very well, indeed. In the world of Florida Retirement Communities, Devonshire is king. While still providing all of the comforts and reassurances of a traditional CCRC such as their LifeCare promise - Devonshire residents are guaranteed Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living and Rehabilitation Services if and when they are needed, right on the Devonshire campus - Devonshire is also giving residents the kind of luxury they became accustomed to during a lifetime of hard work and achievement. The apartment homes here boast high ceilings, custom closets, granite and marble countertops, multiple floor plans and more square footage than any others in the CCRC or Florida Retirement Community Market. And that’s just the individual units.
Head down the hall to the main Clubhouse and you’ll find a state of the art fitness center complete with personal training staff; five (five!) unique restaurants ranging from casual to formal dining, including a high-end seafood restaurant, steak and chop house, pub and more; a private movie theater; resort style pool and even their own Stratford Performing Arts Center where the community hosts live entertainment, panel discussions, lectures and more. Live music, dancing and cocktail parties make the Churchill Lounge the place to be nearly every night of the week, and valet, concierge and housekeeping services leave residents free to enjoy the seemingly endless parade of amenities. Take heart, seniors! At last you can have it all -security, maintenance free living and luxury - in retirement. And take heed, competitors; the bar has been set.
