The kids are grown and maybe live away; they are busy with their own lives and don't visit or call as often as you'd like. Old friends become infirm or die and it seems nobody sees you anymore..... Life for a senior can feel like being invisible and lonely.

One-fourth of adults over age 65 admit to feeling isolated and lonely. It's why we hear about 9-1-1 operators fielding calls from forlorn seniors who just want to talk. And many family members don't even know their elderly loved one is lonely.

At Country Meadows Village, life isn't lonely for our seniors. Quite the opposite! From the moment you move here, there are neighbors, lunch and dinner mates, staff, and friends to rely on, talk to and play with. Our seniors have so much fun, they often tell us they wish they had moved in sooner. Over the years, we have watched our dear senior residents develop close friendships, sometimes even a sweet love interest. We offer games, movie night, exercise class, church services, happy hour, book club and events to keep their calendars filled and minds engaged. The emotional connections are beautiful to watch especially when residents realize they knew another resident from years ago, or they share similar experiences like growing up in the same east coast town or serving in the military unit together.

When you live at Country Meadows Village, there's no time to be sitting by the phone waiting for someone to call, they can leave a message. Call today to schedule a tour, we look forward to meeting you!
