Windsor Run is pleased to announce Amanda Bates as the community’s personal moving consultant. In this role, she will work one-on-one with future community members throughout the entire moving process.

For each of Windsor Run’s pioneer community members, the first face they remember seeing when they stepped inside the sales center belonged to Amanda Bates.

On the request of community member Sherry Herion, the Windsor Run transportation group sponsored the first of many special trips to see Charlotte-area performances—an excursion to Belk Theater at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center to see The Lion King.

Scottish novelist and travel writer Robert Louis Stevenson once remarked, “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”

Windsor Run
Almost 80% of Windsor Run community members use the  My Erickson app on their personal computers or mobile devices. The app is also available on a prominently displayed iPad at  the Woodland Commons Clubhouse front desk.

In 2018, the top mobile apps included YouTube, Goggle Maps, and Amazon. However, for community members at Windsor Run, an Erickson Living community in Matthews, N.C., the My Erickson app, complete with a wide range of community-specific information, topped the charts.

When Peggy Bent visited Wind Crest, the Erickson Living community in Highlands Ranch, Colo., just southwest of Denver, she saw something much different from the other retirement communities she had researched.

Last year, a group of caring Tallgrass Creek neighbors baked a total of 31,119 cookies, all for other people to enjoy.

Jan Reinhart enjoys collecting sketches from her many travels and has plenty of space to display them in her new apartment home at Tallgrass Creek. Jan was among the first residents of Goldfinch Lane, Tallgrass Creek’s new residence building.

When Jan Reinhart first thought about moving to Tallgrass Creek, she made an important decision. 

“I’d visited a friend several times who lived at Tallgrass Creek and liked what I saw,” says Jan. “So when Goldfinch Lane [Tallgrass Creek’s newest residence building] was announced, I joined the priority list before they even broke ground.”
