In September, about 50 local retirees seized an opportunity to visit Riderwood for the first time. The Erickson Living community in Silver Spring, Md., welcomed them to campus as part of a special invitation-only event. The visitors were treated to an informative and action-packed afternoon in which they learned more about the worry-free retirement lifestyle Riderwood offers. The day kicked off with a tour of the campus, with the final stop being at the Celebrations Catering Room. There, the special guests enjoyed lunch with current residents, giving the visitors a chance to get the inside scoop on what it s like to live at Riderwood. After lunch, residents Paul and Natalie Forbes, Bill and Marion Muldoon, and Terrie Elliott convened for a resident panel. They each shared a story about their own experiences at Riderwood and then opened up the discussion for visitors to ask candid questions. Kevin Patterson, a member of Riderwood's sales team, says several of the attendees were intrigued by what they heard throughout the afternoon and opted to take a closer look at the campus by touring different apartment home models.
