Leonardo Cruoglio, who has multiple master's degrees, teaches a variety of college-level courses for his fellow community members at Seabrook.

Many people think of Seabrook as a college campus, but they’re typically referring to the lifestyle of having everything one needs conveniently within reach, just steps from their front door.

A whole New Year stretches out before us filled with promise. Think back over your lifetime to the intentions you’ve set at the beginning of each New Year. Even if you’re not one to declaratively set an official New Year’s resolution, chances are, you’ve noticed the shift in energy each New Year brings. 

Oak Crest
With Oak Crest’s Special Trips department, residents are able to travel on day trips to concerts, and museums, as well as extended trips to exciting locations. Here a group enjoys a day trip to Baltimore and a tour via the Inner Harbor’s Water Taxi.

For Sally McNelis Bowerman, one of the many perks of living at Oak Crest, an Erickson Living-managed community located in Parkville, Md., is the ability to travel worry free with ease.

Tired of home maintenance and repairs, musician and retired Baltimore County school teacher Keith Derrickson, sold his Parkville home and moved to Oak Crest two months after he turned 60.

It’s the New Year, and many of us have made a promise to ourselves to enrich and improve our lives. We resolve to maintain a healthier lifestyle, to spend time doing things that make life more rewarding, and to spend more quality time with our family and friends.

Linden Ponds
Desiree Carlson works full time as a pathologist and says Linden Ponds is a great place for a busy professional to live.

Desiree Carlson works full time as a physician, and she lives at Linden Ponds, an Erickson Living-managed community in Hingham, Mass. She says people often ask why she lives at a retirement community when she is not yet retired.

A "for sale" sign stands in front of a house lightly dusted in snow.

Spring is typically regarded as the prime time to sell a house. Winter, on the other hand, has a reputation for being a tough time to sell. But Linden Ponds Personal Moving Consultant Lynne Ford says that reputation is undeserved.

Highland Springs might not be on Dallas’s top ten list of wedding venues just yet, but the scenic 89-acre campus has hosted more weddings than you might think.
