Marjorie P. Lee: Comfortable Senior Living in Cincinnati

Apr 23, 2013 8:00:00 AM

Bob LaShelle has a unique perspective of retirement community livingIf you’re looking for elegant surroundings, a friendly and helpful staff, a stimulating environment, and peace of mind about your future, then Marjorie P. Lee is the retirement community for you.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Our residents are our greatest promoters. They know that it’s all the little things that add up to make Marjorie P. Lee the perfect choice for retirement community living in Cincinnati.

Living the Life You Love.

Bob LaShelle knows all about life at Marjorie P. Lee.  He’s been an active part of our retirement community since he joined us at Marjorie P. Lee in 2005.

Bob has always been an extrovert, and an energetic social life was a must for any senior living option he considered. Even though he hardly knew anyone when he first moved in, he knew that he had made the right choice with Marjorie P. Lee.

“I’d been down and visited Marjorie P. Lee [before moving in] and had always wanted to come here,” he says.

It didn’t take long for him to start making new friends and be drawn into community life once he had settled into his new apartment.

“Now, I must have 50 good friends that also live here,” he says. “I just feel good living here.  I’m happy living here.”

These days, Bob gets up at 7 o’clock every morning to head over to the Archea Dining Room to meet friends at breakfast— which is one of the highlights of his day.  Bob can entertain friends as he enjoys truly excellent food that he hasn’t had to put any effort into preparing, so he can focus on good conversation.

“Breakfast is the best meal of the day in my opinion,” he says. “Here you can order anything you want, and anything you get will be wonderful.  They even have fresh raspberries, fresh blueberries, fresh strawberries, every morning.”

A Retirement Community That Cares.

Bob tells all of his friends who haven’t yet made the move to Marjorie P. Lee about how inviting senior living can be.

“The staff here is wonderful. They treat us all like royalty. Living at Marjorie P. Lee is like living in a five-star hotel,” he says.

Unlike a hotel, however, you’ll never have to check out of Marjorie P. Lee. There’s a very real sense of security when you live at Marjorie P. Lee that’s not just about a 24-hour security team.

“One of the wonderful things about living here is that you’ll never be asked to leave if your money runs out,” Bob explains.

Our residents rest easy in the knowledge that they will never be asked to leave for financial reasons. We call it “Our Promise, Your Future,” and we put it in writing, right in the residency agreement. Not a lot of retirement communities can say that, but it has been part of our Living Well Into The Future philosophy for over 60 years.

A Top-Tier Senior Living Community with Experienced, Confident Leaders

Episcopal Retirement Homes knows that our senior living communities are your home, and leadership never takes a step without first consulting residents.

“They have residents’ advisory committees [for all the retirement communities],” says Bob. “I was asked to be a board member, and it was a wonderful experience.” 

Bob is no stranger to management, but he found himself impressed by how Episcopal Retirement Homes operates.

“I have been on a lot of committees and boards,” he says. “And ERH is probably the best run one that I have been on. The make-up of the board is amazing. They have former executives of Procter and Gamble and all the big companies around here as well as a lot of religious leaders in the community.”
