Ann's Choice pulls together during uncertain times

In challenging times, we pull together to care for each other. This became the motto at Erickson Living-managed communities across the country, as staff and residents found innovative ways to stay safe, healthy, and connected during the COVID-19 outbreak.

If you’re a regular Tribune reader, you may recall a story about Ann’s Choice resident Gloria Donahue aka “Nana.” Her popular YouTube cooking show “Nana’s Cookery” has been viewed more than two million times.

Ann's Choice prefers to recommend certain vendors because of their proven track record of simplifying the moving process for seniors. 

Remember how house hunting used to be? You’d grab the Sunday paper, comb through hundreds of listings, jump in the car, and drive to as many open houses as possible.

Janice Edelman pursues her new passion behind the camera in the Ann’s Choice TV studio.

Janice Edelman’s philosophy of life is simple: dive in and trust that it will all work out. “If you don’t try new things, how will you know if you like them?” she asks. “I jump in and worry about how deep the water is later.”

Trudy Sellers is pictured here in her home at Ann's Choice. Trudy wears glasses and red top, with a golden broach on her left shoulder.

Trudy Sellers is upbeat, charming, and very busy. Her lilting German accent punctuates her conversation. From her sunny attitude, you’d never suspect how painful her childhood was. Like so many of her compatriots born before or during WWII, her life was filled with trauma.

Good things definitely come in small, but thoughtfully designed, packages like the Brighton model at Ann’s Choice, an Erickson Living-managed community in Warminster, Pa.

A wide variety of seniors gather in a white table cloth dining room. Most are sitting and chatting while eating lunch together. One woman is in the process of sitting down.

Seniors have more living choices than ever, but the hype can be confusing. To find the home that best meets your needs, start by learning about differences among continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). What you don’t know may surprise you.
