What Life is Like at RiverWoods Manchester. A Resident Perspective Panel

Tuesday, June 1, 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Not Sure a Retirement Community is Right for you?

How can I be certain this is a good fit for me? What will my neighbors be like?

Tuesday, June 1, 2021, at 10 am

When making the decision about moving to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC, also called a life plan community), there are a lot of different factors to consider. If you cherish your independent, active lifestyle and are a forward-thinking planner, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn what a great fit it will be.

Listen as our panel of resident experts shares their expectations and experiences about life at RiverWoods Manchester.  Meet our panelists, then translate their wisdom into your own success story.

A fun and informative Q and A will follow the presentation.
