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?

Oak Crest
Oak Crest chef, Joe Bollinger (Center) pictured with colleagues from Oak Crest, competed among 28 senior living communities from the mid-Atlantic region in a cooking competition.

"I don’t like dessert,” said no one ever. If you’re like me, you don’t need a reason to reach for something sweet. But the latest study by The NPD Group, a leading global information company, indicates dessert is in danger at households across America.

They say in real estate, location is everything. For retired nurse Barbara Bigelow the ideal location for her new home was 20 minutes north of Baltimore, Md., in Parkville, at an Erickson Living-managed community called Oak Crest

Last fall, Linden Ponds celebrated its 15th anniversary. The community marked the milestone in October with a lunch for staff and an anniversary dinner for residents. The “pioneers,” the first community members to move to Linden Ponds back in 2004, were especially honored during the celebrations. 

Highland Springs
Shirley Crawford is one of 61 pioneer residents and 13 pioneer staff members at Highland Springs who gathered recently to celebrate the community’s early years.

Shirley Crawford still remembers the excitement she felt on a mid-September morning in 2006. 

“My husband Bill and I were waiting by the doors with our movers at 8 a.m. on the day Highland Springs opened,” says Shirley. “We were the first people to move in.”
