Every few weeks, about 50 Tallgrass Creek neighbors meet up at different restaurants to enjoy great food and good conversation. 

The Tallgrass Tasters, a group of residents, coordinates the fun restaurant outings for their fellow neighbors. Headed up by Phil Roselli, they gather monthly to select restaurants.

One of many reasons Jean Tracy chose Tallgrass Creek over other retirement communities in the Kansas City area was the on-site, fully staffed medical center. 

Wind Crest
Bill and Wendy Rahn smile together at Wind Crest

Wendy and Bill Rahn did what many people daydream of doing when they’re in a vacation destination—they retired there.  

Having wintered in Frisco, Colo., for more than 20 years from their home in St. Joseph, Mich., they started looking for a retirement destination in the Denver area.

Wind Crest
Steve and Delores “Lori” Hessee chose Wind Crest for many reasons, one being its fee-for-service structure.

If I asked the question, “Why not choose Wind Crest?” I would have nothing to write about. When I ask, “Why did you choose Wind Crest?” the answers were so thorough and enthusiastic that we had to split the article into two installments.

Windsor Run
Two young men from an Erickson approved company carefully pack items while moving a house.

"My personal moving consultant was so sweet and helpful and was there by my side throughout the entire moving process,” says Pat Bell, who moved to Windsor Run earlier this year. “As a result, my move was uneventful, and I’m appreciative of the help I received.”

Erickson Living
Kathy and Tom Wozniak say moving to an Erickson Living community in Novi, Mich., wasn’t stressful because they had access to a team of experts through Erickson Realty and Moving Services.

Tom and Kathy Wozniak lived in Livonia, Mich., for almost 40 years. But earlier this year, they decided to trade house repairs for maintenance-free living at Fox Run, an Erickson Living community in Novi, Mich.

Ann's Choice
Before lunching in the Acorn Pub at Ann’s Choice, priority list members Claire and Joe Marshall browse in one of the campus libraries.

Wherever you are in your search for a retirement community, joining the Ann’s Choice priority list lets you visit as often as you like to experience amenities that people who live there enjoy every day.

Ann's Choice
This watercolor is a favorite of Rosalie Gallo because it borders on the abstract and is a departure from her usual style of more realistic work.

At Ann’s Choice, Erickson Living’s retirement community in Bucks County, Pa., the long wall across from the art studio in Liberty Commons Clubhouse showcases a vibrant, creative art gallery.

It’s definitely a destination spot; passersby always slow down to look at the exhibits.
