Many people wonder how to save for retirement. When researching retirement living options, one aspect should be at or near the top of your priority list: financial stability.

At Wind Crest, a continuing care retirement community in Highlands Ranch, Colo., developed and managed by Erickson Living, community members practice safe social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic stopped many things but it didn’t stop people from moving to Tallgrass Creek, an Erickson Living-managed community in Overland Park, Kans. 

Among those new residents is Helen LaValley who moved to Tallgrass Creek on April 2, while residents were all adhering to shelter-in-place guidelines.

"There’s never been a better time to join the priority list at Seabrook,” says Sales Counselor Dennise Baldwin. “Over the next five years, you’ll see renovations all across our 98-acre campus. It will be like a brand-new community. Plan now to make sure an apartment home is available when you’re ready to move.”

Riderwood Executive Director Gary Hibbs is seen here on the community television, wearing a red plaid shirt.

When the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S., the staff at Riderwood reacted nimbly, quickly making changes to keep residents safe, comfortable, and healthy while stay-at-home directives were in place.

Riderwood Sales Counselor Debbie Brumbach says people have continued to join the priority list, reserve apartment homes, and move to the community throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the first and most beneficial steps people often take on their journey to moving to Riderwood is joining the community’s priority list, which is a preferred membership to secure a position for an apartment home.

Oak Crest
With a little creativity, Oak Crest resident Mike Sullivan, seen here enjoying the fitness center pre-pandemic, was able to keep up with his fitness routine.

In January 2019, Mike Sullivan made a concerted effort to bolster his exercise and wellness regimen. He began using the on-site fitness center at Oak Crest, the Erickson Living-managed community in Parkville, Md., and by the end of the year, he was achieving his goals.

Do you worry about riding out another pandemic, hurricane, or snowstorm alone in your home? Do you feel safe coming home to an empty house after dark? What would you do if you had a medical emergency and couldn’t get to the phone?
