Carol Hodges and Hugh Petrie, residents since June 2013
When we started looking for a retirement community in 2012, we developed an extensive checklist to guide our decision. We looked for friendly residents and staff in a welcoming environment, well-designed apartments, a broad range of physical, intellectual, social and spiritual activities, excellent food with lots of eating options, and good transportation and varied excursions. Holly Creek received outstanding grades in every category. And as a bonus, it is one of the national Masterpiece Living communities. Masterpiece Living is a research-based program that promotes healthy aging in all the areas we had on our checklist. It seemed too good to be true, but in the six months we have been at Holly Creek, we have found that it really is that good.
