Claire Peters has lived at Marjorie P. Lee since 2004, and she’s found that the senior living experience has been the highlight of her golden years.
“I feel like it’s my home,” Claire says. “The people seem to be like a big family.”
And she’s so satisfied with her own experience that she can’t help but recommend Marjorie P. Lee to everyone she meets.
“If you’re looking for a place for yourself or your parents or even you grandparents, this would be the place because it’s like coming into a second home,” says Claire, “another home where the people open their arms to you. You feel comfortable the moment you move in.”
The residents at Marjorie P. Lee have developed a true sense of community. A gathering of friends can always be found in one of our sitting rooms or at the library or dining room. You can always hear someone talking and laughing and having a great time.
Loneliness becomes a thing of the past when new residents are welcomed with open arms and drawn right into the heart of the retirement community. At Marjorie P. Lee, your neighbors are always on the lookout for new ways to make your life a little better and a little brighter.
“When you see somebody coming into the dining room alone, if you look around and see someone hesitating at the door, someone nobody came in with. You just go up to them and ask them to join you,” says Claire. “It makes them feel much better, really.”
When you have a problem or you’re not well, you can expect an outpouring of concern from your neighbors.
“If you’re not feeling well, people will drop you notes or come and visit to see how you’re doing,” Claire says. “This is one of the things I like the most about Marjorie P. Lee,” says Claire.
Marjorie P. Lee is a retirement community rife with opportunity to deepen friendships, have fun, and enjoy community. Residents have the chance to live a life of care-free enrichment, enjoying good conversation, staying sharp with classes on all manner of topics, volunteering at local schools and outreach programs, staying active in the arts, or taking in quality entertainment.
“There’s lot’s to do here,” Claire says. “They always have activities going that can keep you busy every day, so if you feel bored, it’s your fault, not theirs,” she says with a laugh.
Claire particularly likes how she can get in her daily exercise without ever having to leave home. With all of the upgrades from the 2010 Jubilee addition (read about it in the Spring 2010 edition of Linkage), residents can find all their wellness needs right in their own retirement community—from a professional fitness center to massage therapy services to a full size pool with a locker room and Jacuzzi.
And that’s not all Marjorie P. Lee offers. Our brand new state-of-the-art Event Center hosts all kinds of exclusive activities and events.
“We have musical programs where students come from the College-Conservatory of Music to learn how to play in front of an audience,” Claire says.
We have already enjoyed a top-notch performance by musicians from the University of Cincinnati Classical Guitar Program and been dazzled by pianist Matthew Quick’s selections from Joseph Haydn, Franz Schubert, Astor Piazzolla and Enrique Granados in April.
With good friends, an amazing atmosphere, and dozens of things to do, Marjorie P. Lee provides a one of a kind senior living experience you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
“This is a wonderful, wonderful place,” Claire says. “I can’t find the words to properly express how I feel about Marjorie P. Lee and moving here.”
