It’s been many years since Riderwood residents Bob and Elaine Tiller boarded an overnight train from Chicago to Alabama to join in protest marches for voting rights of African Americans. Yet, the memories from those few days in 1965 are still vivid in their minds.

Riderwood opened nearly 20 years ago, back in 2000. With that longevity comes stability, rich history, and a proven track record. But, of course, there’s a certain appeal to freshly decorated spaces. That’s why Riderwood’s management team has made it a priority to periodically renovate common areas on campus.

Linden Ponds
Franz Wolff says he stays physically fit by riding his bike around Linden Ponds about five days a week.

Franz Wolff’s Linden Ponds neighbors will tell you he’s got the energy of someone far younger. That may be in part because Franz spends a lot of time riding his bike around Linden Ponds’ campus.

“I ride three to five times a week during good weather. Even in bad weather, I’m out there,” Franz says. “I prefer that exercise as compared to going in the [fitness center].”

Linden Ponds
Cynthia and Kevin Lessard enjoy traveling (they’re pictured here on a trip to Maine), but they say they also find plenty of events, activities, and live entertainment right at home at Linden Ponds.

Cynthia Lessard spent her career as a nurse, so she has a unique view on the health care system and how people’s needs change as they get older.

“I had been a home care nurse years ago, and I saw a lot of people in their homes being so lonely and so needy,” she says.
