Whether you want to move to Ann’s Choice now or a few months down the road, no one knows what apartment styles will be available then. 

Location isn’t everything.

A year ago, Mimi Travis lived at William Penn House in the heart of Center City Philadelphia.

According to two recent dining surveys, people who live at retirement communities and Baby Boomers who are beginning to consider such a move say the qualities that matter most to them are variety of the cuisine, choices in terms of restaurants and menus, and an ambience of hospitality.
