CLOSING I have visited and observed many won- derful senior living communities through- out the region. In doing so I have walked away with three lasting impressions. We are very fortunate to have so many ex- cellent convenient choices at our door- step. Its not surprising given the natural beauty of our region and the fact we are centered in the wealthiest area of Penn- sylvania and nationally in the top 25. A second memorable impression is that the residents of our senior living com- munities embody the talent energy and heart of so many spirited people. These are individuals who have contributed significantly and continue to add to the growth culture and rich heritage of the Delaware Valley. And a third lasting im- pression is the remarkable professional staffs who attend to the needs of seniors throughout the many magnificent com- munities across the region. These ex- traordinary professionals are highly dedi- cated and take great pleasure and reward by helping others. At some point we all have to make plans for the future whether for our- selves or someone we love. Most se- niors and their families want and need choices. Should these plans include con- sideration of moving to a senior living community its important to educate yourself and take time to explore op- tions. Many factors come into play with this decision and selecting the best fit senior living community requires serious planning. CCL 1200 Tel Hai Circle P.O.
