Sales Counselor Lindsey Bonaventure welcomes new resident Dan Blanton.

A new year and new life began for Dan Blanton in January 2020, when he and his cat Blackie moved into the Maple Crossing neighborhood at Maris Grove.

Hastings-style apartment homes are in high demand at Maris Grove. From the wall-framing window to the spacious bedrooms, this popular floor plan is sure to please.

Walk into a Hastings-style apartment home at Maris Grove, and you’re immediately struck by the incredible light pouring in from the floor-to-ceiling bay window. This design feature creates a warm, inviting space filled with sunshine, no matter the time of year. 

Alva Holcombe paints, does leatherwork, and carves gourds. Creating beautiful glass is her newest passion. She's seen here with several of her glass pieces.

The table is covered with brightly colored glass objects of all shapes and sizes. Azure blues, forest greens, and golden ambers bathe the bowls, vases, trays, and decorative pieces in breathtaking light.  

Robin Abes poses here with her parents Jay and Jean Gang in their apartment at Maris Grove. Robin is wearing a pink sweater, Jay is wearing a plaid shirt and a black vest, and Jean wears a black turtleneck and necklaces.

Maris Grove has given my mom and dad the life every adult child wants for their parents.” 

That lovely sentiment comes from Robin Abes, a retired teacher whose parents Jay and Jean Gang moved to the community in October 2018.

Travel is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in and learn about other cultures. But at a certain point, packing, long plane rides, and filing on and off tour busses lose their luster.

Frankie Moses is a dynamo. The long-time Maris Grove resident has her busy hands in many activities, but none gives her more satisfaction than the Blanket Circle she started in 2008.

A group of seniors socializes at night on a patio, with beautifully lit outdoor tables and glasses of wine.

If you're looking for a maintenance-free, active senior living community, be sure to expand your search outside your zip code. You might find the perfect fit in terms of lifestyle, amenities, and floor plans just over the state line.

Younger Baby Boomers are increasingly interested in adopting a carefree lifestyle while they’re in good health and can fully enjoy it. 

With regular structural updates and refinishes to buildings (like the beautiful brick edifice seen here), a strong financial model, and a full continuum of care, Maris Grove offers the ideal experience for seniors, no matter what the future holds.

New senior communities that offer month-to-month rentals are springing up in the area. Many offer multiple tiers of medical care and lots of amenities, which begs the questions: Is renting a viable option for you? Or is putting down roots in a community that offers a home for life a better choice?
