When it came time for Mike and Jean Grogan to sell their house of 47 years in Houston’s Wilchester West neighborhood, the couple had only one option in mind.

“We knew we wanted to move to Eagle’s Trace,” says Jean. “We’ve had friends move to the community over the years, and we’ve seen how nice it is. We didn’t look anyplace else.”

Cedar Crest
Vicki and Andy Cusimano enjoy an added bonus to living at Cedar Crest—their daughter-in-law Danielle Cusimano (left) works on campus as the community’s rehabilitation manager.

Like many physical therapists and rehabilitators, Danielle Cusimano knew what she wanted to do: to help people. But when she landed a job at Cedar Crest, the Erickson Living community in Pequannock Township, N.J., 13 years ago, she found her “why.”

“I’m going to hit the road,” Patricia Cirincion would say to her daughter as she’d leave her daughter's Rutherford, N.J., home to return to Cedar Crest, where Patricia had moved in June 2018. But after just one month living at the Pequannock Township Erickson Living community, one day Patricia said, “I’m going home.”

Amy Bishop, a human resources senior recruiter at Charlestown, prides herself on knowing the residents who live there by name—a challenge in a community that more than 2,000 people call home.

The old adage “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” is good advice. But you don’t have to rely on apples alone to stay healthy when you have a physician-staffed medical center just steps from your front door. 

Brooksby Village
Lifelong friends Ann Centrella (left) and Margaret Bonanno moved to Brooksby Village within two weeks of each other.

Life’s road map has been remarkably similar for Ann Centrella and Margaret Bonanno.

The two friends met during their junior year at Everett High School in Everett, Mass.

“We did everything together,” says Ann. “We went to the movies and to basketball games, we spent the night at each other’s houses, we knew each other’s families.”

For Eva Madura, proximity to the fitness center at Brooksby Village is great motivation to exercise regularly.

“I walk by the fitness center on my way to and from my apartment,” says Eva. “It’s a daily reminder to work out.”
