Learn something new every day

Windsor Run’s ‘Lunch and Learn’ events a big hit

Greek philosopher Plato said, “A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.” 

Ensuring that everyone interested in a future at Windsor Run has numerous opportunities to learn about the Erickson Living community in Matthews, N.C., the sales center is hosting information-packed luncheons called “Lunch and Learns.” 

“We believe it is important to provide prospective residents with every opportunity to learn more about our community and to ask all of their important questions,” says Director of Sales Tom Senger.  

Fact-finding mission

Recently, Windsor Run welcomed Erickson Living Chief Medical Officer Dr. Matt Narrett to the sales center for two “Lunch and Learn” events. He discussed in detail the on-site medical center, a hallmark of the Erickson Living lifestyle, that will reside in Windsor Run’s Woodland Commons Clubhouse. The medical center will be staffed by full-time doctors, nurses, and other health professionals.

“As a new community, many of our prospective residents are eager to learn more about the medical and health benefits that will be offered at Windsor Run,” says Senger. “Unlike other senior health centers, no one is required to use our doctors. They are free to continue seeing their current primary care physicians. But for many, there is great peace of mind knowing that the medical center is there if they need urgent care or a same-day appointment.”

During his presentation, Narrett discussed the high level of care Erickson Living physicians provide each patient. All of the doctors are board-certified, specialize in geriatric care, and focus on prevention and whole-body health. He also addressed the continuing care community that will be built following the completion of the first residence neighborhood.

Because Erickson Living communities foster a healthy lifestyle, from dining options to professionally staffed fitness and wellness centers, many people never need the high level of care their community offers. However, all residents enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that no matter what the future holds, they will be well cared for.

“Aging is a series of unexpected ‘surprises,’ and it is comforting to know that our home provides a level of medical care commensurate to whatever our needs may be,” says Nancy Eisenbise, a community member at Ashby Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Ashburn, Va.

Excellent meal

While listening intently to Narrett’s presentation, guests at the Windsor Run “Lunch and Learn” enjoyed a delicious feast beginning with a spring strawberry salad featuring sweet strawberries, spiced nuts, red onions, and feta cheese. Guests then had their choice of salmon piccata in a creamy caper and lemon sauce or a stuffed spinach and cheese chicken breast. Both entrees were served with tangerine rice pilaf, baby carrots, and sugar snap peas. For dessert they enjoyed diving into either chocolate or hummingbird cake.

Busy calendar

Due to the tremendous response to the “Lunch and Learn” events, Windsor Run’s sales center will host a variety of informational events throughout the summer. For example, in July and August, guests will enjoy wine and cheese as they take a virtual tour of a variety of apartment homes. 

“This is an exciting time at Windsor Run,” says Senger. “I encourage anyone interested in learning more to give us a call and schedule a visit.”
