Thinking about when is a good time to move into a senior community? Tis the season.

October 5, 2020

The pandemic has many prospective renters and their families wondering when it’s safest to move into a senior community. With fall and winter coming, people are more prone to become isolated and lonely. Now is a good time to move into a senior community for many reasons.
