[Music] when you go into a retirement community you have assistance in so many ways my wife wanted to move to this community I did not want to move to any community because I didn't understand the benefit I really didn't think I wanted to leave my house because I was big into flower gardening I had a large piece of property and then I'm beginning to realize what a burden that was even though I had a caretaker you don't have to worry about it anymore everything's taken care of and I didn't realize what a joy that would be sometimes residents are apprehensive when they first make the change into the retirement community but after they get here and they get settled in they see how much stress is lifted off of them just by having meals prepared and activities planned and all they have to do is just show up I decided that I was not getting any younger and that I might as well make plans to live a few years not 20 years which I've lived here I've never regretted one day that I came over here living in a retirement community adds as life expectancy to a person we have a lot of good employees here a lot of good residents and everything but there's always positive in that place when they move and they realize they're not giving up independence or gaining more because they have the the independence to to go and do without the worrying of the upkeep and when they come here a lot of them begin living the food is great the staff is wonderful and we just enjoy living here everybody enjoys their life here and we the team does our very best ten rates to life that they have here it's just a great place to me aging is not something to look of disparagingly act it just gives you more opportunities to live and live in a different way and so I've thoroughly enjoyed it I wish I had come earlier very definitely I've said that so many times you
