I decided that I should move to a retirement community because i did not like the responsibility of home ownership anymore the fact that I moved here stunned my children because I I'm basically in very active individual yet they were extremely happy they knew that if something did happen to me I'm going to be taken care of I feel safe and secure here so many residents come to our communities and one of the reasons they come there is for the additional socialization they want to make new friends I've made a great many friends different because it's a different stage of life you do make friends and you do seek those that you care about there's a common misconception among people who are considering moving into senior housing that they're giving something up the reality that I've seen they're really gaining a tremendous amount obviously they're gaining a beautiful environment wonderful services beautiful grounds living in a great town it's all part of being here at the village of duxbury what is unanticipated is the intangibles that come with moving to the village of duxbury the the friendship the sense of community the safety the security the from the laughter the ease of life we like to tell the story about people who don't move to a retirement community because they say they're not ready yet but when you walk around here and you ask someone they will say I wish I had done it sooner a perfect community and it is it's an unusual unique place the whole Welsh organization is that this was to be the very best placed in every respect and as far as I'm concerned they achieve that the fact that I took that step while I was really feeling in great shape and dropped everything that I ever knew to come to the village and never have any regrets I've never looked back my life has been enhanced since I've come I don't have that worries that I've had at home I think I have gotten younger since I've come here you
