Erickson Living retirement counselors encounter hundreds of interesting people each month who are actively researching their retirement options. Meet one of these experts Marie Dmoch of Ann s Choice in Bucks County, Pa. Marie Dmoch has been working at Ann s Choice for nine years and has watched the campus blossom into a warm, friendly community. She loves when the residents tell her they ve never been happier and wish they had moved sooner. Here Dmoch answers some of the most frequent questions she receives about Erickson Living s unique lifestyle.

Q: What is the best ' floor plan for ' the value?

A: With 30 different apartment styles, the best floor plan is the one that accommodates the space a person needs. For example, the Brighton, a one-bedroom model, is usually considered by single people, but many couples find it to be the best value because they enjoy all of the community s benefits and amenities for a lower price than a two-bedroom model. And the Brighton has a galley kitchen and a pass-thru window so you can gaze out the living room window while standing at the kitchen sink.

Q: What if my house doesn t sell quickly enough?

A: The good news is when you choose an Erickson Living community like Ann s Choice, you can leave behind the hassles of selling your house and moving.
