A move to any retirement community involves two main decisions: Is this the lifestyle I want? Is this the right place to achieve that lifestyle? Listen to some of your peers below and hear first-hand what amenities and services were most important to them.
It was the best choice
Over the years, we have advised hundreds of older adults who are trying to determine if a The Stratford is right for them. The most consistent feedback that we get from our Members is that they wished they had made the decision sooner. With our commitment to preserving Member independence throughout a vibrant lifestyle, a move to The Stratford could just be the best decision you could ever make.
Approach makes the difference
Aging is inevitable – your approach to aging makes all the difference. Because it’s not enough to be surrounded in a resort-style setting if your quality of life prevents you from enjoying it. At The Stratford, we believe anyone at any age in any condition can improve the quality of their life. It’s a distinct way of looking at the world – a radical idea that as our physical bodies get older, our outlook can stay young. Our communities offer many features that enable this way of life including indoor heated pools, multi-million dollar private wellness centers, on-site spas, wellness dining menus and more.
We understand that the financial component of a decision as significant as a move to a retirement community can be one of your paramount concerns. If you’re asking yourself, “Can I afford this?”, then you’re asking the right question. We invite you to explore all of the benefits, services and amenities that our one monthly fee includes, and then compare that cost with your current monthly expenditures. You just might be surprised at how affordable luxury retirement living can be. Whether it’s saving money on monthly expenses or estate planning for your children, we can show you that a move to The Stratford can be one of the smartest financial decisions you can make.
Safety & Security
“If something did happen, someone would be there.” That’s the peace of mind that every Member of The Stratford feels when they move in with us. They feel that for themselves, and they feel that on behalf of their children and loved ones. Knowing that help is on every campus every hour of the day and that The Stratford comes equipped with the best in security measures are just some of the reasons you’ll have peace of mind too.
If you’re like your peers, you may be eager to leave behind the burdens of home ownership as you explore what your retirement living path might look like. We believe that a quality of life that embraces true independence doesn’t have to include the chores of daily living. This is why all of our living options include full maintenance and repair, housekeeping and deep cleaning, security, transportation services and a flexible dining program with an industry-leading culinary menu. One monthly check covers it all.
The Stratford wouldn’t be world-class if it didn’t have the best clubhouse restaurants in town. There are no cafeterias at The Stratford. Our restaurant approach to our full-service dining program emphasizes variety and quality, with daily specials crafted by our Executive Chefs and fully stocked wines, beers and cocktails in our clubhouse bars. Members are allotted flexible dining dollars, which roll over each month and can always be cashed out, giving you one of the best dining programs in the industry.
If you make the choice to visit The Stratford, the first thing you’re sure to experience is the social and communal atmosphere of a vibrant and dynamic group of individuals. Making new friends is one of the unexpected bonuses that many of our Members regularly express. And with a full time Social Director curating programs and coordinating activities, your Calendar of Events can be as full as you choose every week of the year.
