For Vito Pennacchio and his daughter Janet Rourke, Linden Ponds is a family affair. Vito lives at the community, and Rourke works there as office coordinator for the on-site medical center.

A group of people who live at Linden Ponds, the Erickson Living campus in Hingham, Mass., formed a steering committee to certify the 108-acre campus as an arboretum. After two years of research and planning, their work finally paid off.

From making restaurant reservations and booking flights and hotels to checking our bank account balances and paying our bills, it seems whatever you might need to do, “there’s an app for that.”

One of the most exciting aspects of moving to a new home is the opportunity to redecorate and update your space.

Shortly after Linden Ponds opened its ninth residence building, Willard Square, last year, Nancy and Ray Anderson were among the first people to move into one of the brand-new apartment homes. The Andersons chose a Newberry floor plan, which features two bedrooms and one and a half baths.

Sally Hall and Ed Hiller smile with their bicycles and riding gear

A few years ago, Linden Ponds resident Ed Hiller saw his neighbor Sally Hall putting her bicycle on her car in the community’s garage. He pulled over and asked her if she’d be interested in biking with him sometime. Sally was indeed interested, and the two have been riding together ever since. 

Susan and Bill Humberd moved to Linden Ponds in their early 70s because they wanted to enjoy the vibrant social life and maintenance-free living sooner rather than later.

Susan and Bill Humberd didn’t want to wait until they had health issues or until they were in a crisis to move to a retirement community. That’s why the couple, who are in their early 70s, moved to Linden Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Hingham, Mass., in April.
