Christina Christie, sales director at Highland Springs, recently made her live television debut during a “Living Longer” segment on WFAA’s Good Morning Texas.

Alanna Sarabia, cohost of Good Morning Texas, introduced Christie and hailed Highland Springs as one of Dallas’s most popular retirement destinations.

“Highland Springs offers an independent lifestyle with peace of mind for the future,” said Sarabia.

Highland Springs, the Erickson Living community located in North Dallas, is home to more than 925 residents.

“Our people and our mission are the two factors that set us apart,” Christie said on the show. “At Highland Springs, we share our gifts to create a community that celebrates life. That’s the mission our residents and staff live every day. Our community is much like a small town. We have an extraordinary array of services and amenities and a wide variety of well-appointed apartment homes.”

Highland Springs community members drive all clubs and activities, which include everything from Wii bowling to water volleyball. They enjoy access to a fully equipped fitness center and all-season swimming pool, in addition to an array of weekly group exercise classes.

They can dine in any of the community’s four restaurants, with options ranging from a casual lunch to a sit-down dinner with friends.

Integrated approach to health care

During the “Living Longer” segment on Good Morning Texas, Christie emphasized the community’s integrated approach to health care.

“Our on-site medical center is one of our most unique amenities,” she said. “It offers convenient, senior-based care with full-time geriatricians who practice on site.”

Other team members across campus also support residents’ health care needs, including the security staff, who are cross-trained as emergency medical technicians; social workers; home support; and outpatient physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

And while most people move to Highland Springs for its independent living offerings, they have the assurance that any future health care needs can be met right on campus.

The community’s continuing care neighborhood offers assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and post-acute rehabilitation services.

A growing community

To close out the segment on Good Morning Texas, Sarabia asked Christie what’s ahead for Highland Springs.

“It’s an exciting time for our community,” said Christie. “We have two new buildings under construction. Magnolia Place is a new clubhouse featuring an enrichment center, library, and 18 apartment homes. Twin Oaks Square is a new residence building with 109 apartment homes and a new dining venue, the Lone Star Pub. Both will be available in 2018.”
