All-inclusive pricing provides a choice of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom suites – all of which are pet friendly. Transportation, meals, snacks, housekeeping, cable TV and air conditioning are included. Outings and activities are also available.
The grounds of Churchill Manor are intentionally designed to be beautiful and welcoming, enabling residents to enjoy the outdoors just as much as the indoors. Being close to parks, shops, restaurants and attractions helps facilitate each resident’s active lifestyle. Staff are on hand 24/7 and emergency pendants are given out; families never have to worry as medical care is always right on hand.
Alex Shipman, Community Sales Director, has advice for families looking for a retirement home.
“Things to consider include the longevity of the staff,” he notes. “Also, where does the community transportation take them, and does it include social visits? Is the community pet friendly? Do they allow electric scooters? How many meal choices are there?”
“Of course,” he continues, “cost is also a factor. For example, our closest competitor is $900 more per month and offers the same things.”
For Alex, one of the most important factors in any retirement community is the sense of community.
“Ask about the size of the community. If it’s too big it becomes less homey.”
A warm, welcoming, inclusive community is what Churchill Manor is all about, and Alex is pleased that the residents appreciate the curated atmosphere.
Alex says, “When asking new Churchill Manor residents why they chose our community, I always hear how homey we are, how laid back it is, and how nice the staff and other residents are.”
When it’s time to find a retirement community, many seniors and their families expect a ward-like atmosphere that lacks warmth. Alex points out that this doesn’t have to be the case.
“Especially at Churchill Manor, things are always different then what they were expecting. In a retirement community you can still have your own independence and make your own decisions. We are here to take away those boring mundane tasks so you can fill your days with things you want to do such as relaxing, socializing, activities, and peace of mind. We want you to be happy, healthy and safe.”
Of course, safety first! During the pandemic, the utmost care is taken to ensure the residents can enjoy interactions and a social life, while remaining protected from COVID-19. Visitors must provide proof of vaccination, wear a mask, sign and out, and have their temperature taken.
