At Fauntleroy Church this morning, representatives of seven West Seattle (and vicinity) retirement communities teamed up for a Town Hall-style event to answer questions – both about their individual properties, and about big-picture issues such as “When is the time to sell your house and move to a retirement community?” That one was answered during our short stop at the event, and the reply was a strong “Now” – the economy may be down, but affordability is up. A related question was “what if you can’t sell your home?”; turns out, there are special programs, as well as agents who specialize in helping – talk to your retirement community of choice. The Q/A was moderated by Karen Sisson from the Senior Center of West Seattle; participating communities included WSB sponsors Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights, Merrill Gardens at West Seattle, The Kenney, and Daystar Retirement Village, as well as Providence Mount St. Vincent, Arrowhead Gardens, and Boulevard Park Place.
P.S. The Kenney is having a meeting of its own next Wednesday night (October 5th), 6:30 pm, with an update on the Memory Support Unit that it’s adding. All welcome.
P.P.S. Helping out at the door for this morning’s event was a rep from Friend to Friend‘s West Seattle chapter. They appreciate volunteers and donations, to make sure nobody’s lonely in a retirement/assisted-living center. Call 206-246-5150 to find out how to help.
Sorry, comment time is over.
