Spending Winter at Your House vs. Spending Winter at Fountaingate Gardens


Winter is coming, and with it comes icy roads and walkways, blustery cold winds and falling snow. The harsh weather is unavoidable and unpredictable once the season takes hold, especially on Long Island. For many people, this means driving in unfavorable conditions for groceries, appointments and necessities—and that’s if they can get out of their houses at all! It can mean hours looking for companies to come to fix a broken furnace or to thaw frozen pipes. And, it means shoveling…lots and lots of shoveling! But, when you choose to make Fountaingate Gardens your home, these stresses disappear!

Winter at a Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community or CCRC) like Fountaingate Gardens will be a time to enjoy all of your daily pursuits, plus holiday parties, family and friends, day trips and other activities, with no winter worries or hassles. You will have all the amenities and services you need to ensure you can go about your busy life exactly as you like, regardless of what the weather is doing. From snow removal to onsite medical care to a ride into town, you will have conveniences enabling you to choose what each day brings rather than have Mother Nature choose for you.

Our landscape and maintenance crews take care of these labor-intensive chores for you, making sure the roads and walkways are clear. This means you can ignore accumulating snow knowing you will not be stuck in one place fighting cabin fever, or worse, cut off from vital services or supplies. At Fountaingate Gardens, you’ll be free to go for a dip in our heated pool, stop in the Clubhouse for a group discussion or card game—or just relax and cozy up with a good book. And, you’ll never have to go outside to take advantage of all these options, because our enclosed walkways will handle any weather situation!

But, if you’d like to go into town for dinner, a movie, or simply to enjoy the winter landscape, you can. Not only will your walkways and surrounding spaces be shoveled quickly, your car is safe from the elements in your underground parking space. Don’t want to drive? Weather permitting, scheduled transportation with pick up and drop off sites both on and off campus is another option, so you’ll be able to get to anywhere you may need or want to go.

Everyone has a story about how winter disrupted their lives, whether it was a roof that caved in from the snow or missing a long-anticipated holiday celebration with family because they couldn’t make it out of their driveway. Making Fountaingate Gardens your home will eliminate those concerns, leaving you free to enjoy the winter months.
