Amenities enhance quality of life
“If we had to do all the chores of a house, we wouldn’t have time and energy for everything we really love to do,” says Jon, a retired professor and dean from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
Transportation when they don’t feel like driving, musical performances at the community, a well-stocked library, a reading sunroom, wine and cheese social hours – and the Monterey Bay at their footsteps; These are a few of the many Forest Hill amenities the Ericsons treasure about Forest Hill.
“It’s so nice to go down to dinner and visit with other residents. We’re engaged in conversation. We’re not lonely. And the food is so impressive,” Amy says. “When we invite friends to dinner we take them downstairs, not out. We’re so proud of our dining room.”
A love for the coastal California lifestyle
The Ericsons looked at more than a dozen retirement communities before choosing Forest Hill. They wanted a California coastal feel; they wanted to be near cultural offerings, a church to call home, and their children living in the Bay Area. They wanted friends who were interesting, engaging, kind, and above all down-to-earth. Add Forest Hill’s continuum of care, and the decision was made.
