On making the move:

“We are delighted to be residents of The Mews at Homestead Village.  The quality and craftsmanship of renovations we requested to our villa exceeded our expectations.  Our new home is filled with sunlight, and it has secluded and well landscaped views.  We have been gratified by the genuine concern for our satisfaction shown by all staff members.  Finally, and most importantly, in these challenging health times, we are reassured to be members of an organization that is so invested in our health and welfare.” – John and Suzanne

“We have a lovely new home in a great location. Our neighbors are wonderful and we are forming new friendships as we take advantage of some of the many activities offered here. Support services are provided, and with no maintenance responsibilities, we enjoy a carefree lifestyle.” – Stephen and Peg

“After living in School Lane Hills for 52 years, Chris and I moved to the Farmstead at Homestead Village. We have our own carriage house but none of the maintenance worries. There are numerous amenities, a variety of support services, and the location is the best. We are still close to family and old friends. You are able to maintain your lifestyle without all the headaches. Come join us!” – Chris and Gladdie

“Don’t wait! We should have moved five years sooner and should not have downsized first to a condo community, because we had to move twice.” – John and Louise

“Don’t think twice. Just do it!” – Frank and Theona

“Place your name on a waiting list as soon as possible, because life happens so fast, and as you get older, it only gets harder to make a move.” – Chick and Nancy

“It was the best move I ever made.” – Betty

From a Family’s Perspective:

“Our family has much to be thankful for in 2023.  At the top of our list are the entire Homestead Village team who have enabled our parents and the rest of our family to have a safe and joyful holiday season.  Your care, concern, flexibility and support of our entire family has been nothing short of amazing.  We’ve tested every department, as well as many of the individuals in each of those departments, daily from September 29 through today.   Every step of this journey has been met with a “can do” approach that clearly reflects a very special culture deeply instilled in each team member. We knew when our folks selected Homestead as their retirement community back in 2010, we wouldn’t be disappointed.  At that time, we couldn’t have guessed just how much we would need every ounce of what this community has to offer.  Now we truly understand just how special each person and department are to the health, safety and security of each resident. For all of this and more we are deeply appreciative.” ` Sherry, Scott, and Family
