“It truly is inspired living. I feel uplifted whenever I think about Aspire and what the future holds.”
– Barbara Vandunk
Barbara Vandunk’s mailbox was full of advertisements and direct mailers from area retirement communities, but there was something about the Aspire at Carriage Hill mailer that caught her eye. “It really was an eye opener and made me really think about all the things I would like to be doing at this stage of my life.”
“I had no idea where on earth this place was, but something told me to call. The people there were all so very pleasant. They gave me directions and said I could drive by to look at the property and that they would love to have me stop in for more information.”
Barbara was impressed with it all: the restaurants and dining, the social opportunities, the exercise programs and, most of all, the Richmond location which allows her to stay close to friends and all the services she now uses. Not to mention the monthly rental fee.
“In a home, your expenses don’t get any lower, they get higher – and it’s harder to find reliable people to get things fixed. At Aspire, all the maintenance is handled for me. I don’t have to worry about whether I paid the cable bill or water bill – it’s all taken care of in one fee.”
Barbara is especially looking forward to making new friends and enjoying a more active lifestyle. “My doctor recommends walking at least 30 minutes a day. At Aspire, I can just walk out my door and walk around the neighborhood. I truly believe living at Aspire will help to prolong my life and help me to be more active and even eat healthier.”
Barbara is excited to move to a place where she will have more time to enjoy leisure activities. “There are so many amenities offered in the building. I can have a couple of drinks in the Cary Tavern or see a movie. I might even learn to swim! I definitely will not get bored, that’s for sure.”
Now she understands why the Aspire brochure was so appealing to her above all the others. “It truly is inspired living. I feel uplifted whenever I think about Aspire and what the future holds.”
“Aspire to do better, and that’s what I did.”
