Tom and Vivian Bleakney—Living the Good Life

Tom and Vivian Bleakney weren't searching for a retirement community. It was only by chance that they learned about Linden Ponds.

'My father got an invitation to lunch and a tour, but he wasn't interested,' explains Tom. 'He showed it to us, and we decided to visit.'

That simple decision changed their lives for the better!

'We never ever thought you could live like this,' says Vivian. 'Two days later we made a deposit.'

With maintenance and house upkeep behind them, The Bleakneys fully embraced their freedom. Vivian started a line dancing group, and Tom works in the campus television studio.

They also enjoy traveling and spending time with their children and grandchildren. 'At Linden Ponds you can do as much or as little as you like,' explains Vivian. 'It's independent living, so you make those choices.'
