While students may greet September with pencils, pens and books, for many older homeowners, ‘tis the season of rakes, ladders and wet walks to the mailbox.
But what if it didn’t have to be? What if instead, autumn brought the chance to relax with a good book, enjoy delicious dinners shared with friends – prepared by a professional culinary team that ALSO washes the dishes – and relish crisp, refreshing walks while someone else rakes the leaves and cleans the gutters?
“One of the most common comments we hear from our new residents is that they’re not only thrilled with the move, they wish they’d done it sooner!” says Sue Rowell, Community Relations Director at Quail Park of Lynnwood.
- Let someone else do the chores: After years of raking leaves and mowing lawns – you know it’s virtually a year-round chore in the Pacific Northwest! – isn’t it time to enjoy a “low-maintenance lifestyle”? “Our residents love that they enjoy the best of independent living, like beautifully appointed, pet-friendly residences, and proximity to shopping, dining and other community attractions, without the chores they’d rather never do again,” Rowell says.
- Enjoy everything in one – indoor! – location: Forget having to venture out in the cold and wet to check the mail, or pick up something for dinner. Not only is your mailbox safe, secure and dry inside at Quail Park, when the weather is at its worst, you’ll be enjoying a coffee in the bistro, a glass of wine and good conversation at the pub, or a gourmet meal with friends in Quail Park’s Rainier Dining Room. You’ll also find a pool and fitness facility onsite, plus a chapel and meditation room and a calendar of events that will keep you inspired and engaged, even on the dreariest winter days.
- Let someone else do the driving: When you do need to venture away from home for shopping, a doctor’s appointment or other errand, you don’t have to worry about navigating dark, wet roads – the Quail Park team is ready to do the driving for you!
