24 Jan Reflecting back on 25 years
A lot can happen in 25 years. Since Southgate at Shrewsbury opened its doors to seniors in search of a maintenance-free, culturally, healthful and intellectually stimulating lifestyle in 1989 much has changed in the world.
For instance, in 1989 President Ronald Reagan bid adieu to the office he held for the previous eight years, the movie “Rain Man” won the Oscar for Best Picture and the ensuing boom of the Internet age had not yet come to its digital fruition.
Since 1989, we’ve witnessed the swearing in of four U.S. presidents, watched computer generated images come to life on the silver screen in blockbuster feature-length films such as “Titanic,” and immersed ourselves in technology that’s at our fingertips through mobile smart phones and tablets.
Yes, a lot has changed in the past two-and-a-half decades. Notably, many seniors have become more focused on maintaining their active lifestyles. They have searched for places to live where they can enjoy their independence without daily hassles, such as grocery shopping or home repairs—and all while staying active and fulfilled with regular visits to the day spa, jaunts to the gym for yoga classes, and by attending musical concerts and academic talks to stimulate their cultural and intellectual interests.
Fortunately, over the past 25 years, Southgate at Shrewsbury has proudly had the opportunity to fulfill our senior residents’ needs. Today we are just as committed to providing our senior residents with the opportunity to enjoy a phenomenal lifestyle, with scrumptious meals, maintenance-free housing options, fitness activities, culturally stimulating trips, intellectually fulfilling classes and great conversations as we were when we opened our doors back in 1989.
As we reflect on the past 25 years, we set our sights on the horizon, and we look forward to continuing to serve our residents by offering them a happy, fulfilling, no-hassle living environment they can enjoy for years to come.
