Attitude of Gratitude: What Makes The Estates Residents Thankful?

“There’s a lot to be grateful for about life at a Life Plan Community, and especially The Estates at Carpenters,” says Cristine Royer, Marketing Director at The Estates at Carpenters. “Personally, I’m thankful for our more than 34 years of experience that have uniquely positioned us to provide high quality service and care to the residents of Lakeland, FL. We know that the retirees who call us home have worked hard and planned well for retirement, and we’re grateful to be able to provide the ideal carefree, vibrant retirement lifestyle they’re looking for.”

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, we’ve put together a list of things our residents and staff say make them thankful for life at The Estates at Carpenters. Here are just a few reasons why life here provides an attitude of gratitude for so many.

Enjoyable, Abundant Activities

There’s always something fun and enjoyable taking place at The Estates at Carpenters – even during these unprecedented times. You can take an exercise or wellness class, head out to a safe community event, enjoy happy hour with friends and relax with a wonderful dinner – all in one day. Besides our scheduled events, we encourage residents to head out and do the things they want to do – and we’ll help make it happen.

Our on-site amenities are just another facet of the way we provide an active, independent and enjoyable lifestyle for older adults. Create a masterpiece in the art studio, treat yourself with a service in the salon, immerse yourself in two on-site libraries complete with large print and audio books, sharpen your skills in the woodworking shop, get into the swing at the 19th Hole Putting Green, entertain friends and family in the outside patio and grilling area … the opportunities are endless.

“We love our spacious apartment home, the abundance of activities, the good selection of food, the friendly residents and the availability of transportation offered for our convenience. We also love the beautiful property and the easy access to shopping, restaurants, banks and cultural and sporting events. The Estates has thought of it all.”

  • Paul and Marge Kozak

Freedom and Flexibility

Life revolves around our residents at The Estates at Carpenters. Every detail of our community is designed to inspire active, independent retirees to enjoy every moment of life. From lifelong learning and hands-on classes to wellness programs, cultural events and outings, our life-enrichment opportunities are endless.

“We LOVE it here! For us, there is a great deal of peace of mind knowing that our investment at The Estates is actually protecting our estate as we grow older. Since both of us are still active, we enjoy the flexibility of enjoying the amenities of The Estates with added freedom to pursue the things we love doing out in the Lakeland community.”

  • Edgar and Louise Lee

A Low-Maintenance Lifestyle

Say goodbye to home chores, home maintenance and even cooking if you wish … sit back, relax and enjoy the maintenance-free lifestyle at The Estates at Carpenters. For one monthly fee, we take care of everything for our residents. This leaves all the time in the world for them to enjoy their life in the way they want.

“The Estates’ Move-In Coordinator and the contractors worked closely with us to extensively renovate and customize our apartment home to make it just right for two thorough, retired engineers. We enjoy our low-maintenance lifestyle and having more time and energy since The Estates provides so many services: move-in concierge, meals, transportation, housekeeping, maintenance (apartment home, appliances, lawn, etc.). Best of all, should one of us need health care in the future, we won’t have to be separated.”

  • John and Anita Callahan

A Lifestyle to Love

Every day brings new opportunities to improve yourself, whether that’s learning a new skill, making new friends, exploring new vistas or simply enjoying the moment. We provide wellness opportunities that care for the whole person – physical, emotional and mental – to create a lifestyle that encourages adventure, optimism and healthy aging.

“Since our move, we have gained a whole new circle of friends that support us, and the staff makes the residents their number one priority. We can honestly say that we have never been as worry-free in our life! We are provided daily opportunities for our physical, social and spiritual well-being in a safe and welcoming environment. What more could you ask for?”

  • Dennis and Mary Drury

Peace of Mind for Now and the Future

The true beauty of our Life Plan Community is the full continuum of care you receive – all in one extraordinary community. The Estates at Carpenters offers a vibrant independent living lifestyle, along with access to assisted living, skilled nursing and short- and long-term rehabilitation – right on site. This represents not only outstanding value, but peace of mind in retirement. You never have to worry about depleting your savings for future health care costs. No matter what the future may hold, you have a home at The Estates at Carpenters … always.

“We fell in love with the place and the people. The continuing care really appealed to us knowing that if something happened to one of us, we would be at the same location and could still visit just by walking down the stairs. This love continues to grow every day, and it’s just awesome.”

  • Doris and Harley
