At our most recent “Ask the Experts” event, we featured a panel of future residents: Bonnie, Ina, Joyce and Al.

New Fountaingate Gardens Contract Option: Lower Entry Fee

Bonnie took what some would call a drastic approach, saying that she and her husband decided to make a deposit at Fountaingate Gardens without involving their family – at first. “We made our deposit and told our kids, ‘Guess what we just did!’” Bonnie exclaimed. Once they discussed their decision with their children, everyone was glad to know that there will be no burden of care, and the kids are already helping to plan their parents’ transition. “We’ve already figured out where our furniture will go in our new home, and our kids have already decided who is taking what from the items we will no longer need.” Continue reading “To the Point: A family decision, a smooth transition”
