The month of May – automatically our thoughts go to Mother’s Day. We naturally associate May with our moms, and for those of us fortunate enough to still have our mothers here with us, it is a time to celebrate life.
For most of us, our mothers play a very important role in the people we become. They direct us and guide us and most likely pray for us. They care for us when we are sick; help us when we move; babysit the grandchildren and the list goes on. Moms do so much for us throughout our lives – isn’t it time to do something for them?
Many mothers, like my mother, find themselves without a spouse or companion after many years of happiness together. The transition from this “couples” lifestyle into “single” lifestyle can be overwhelming and frightening. Continued companionship with friends and involvement in social activities is vitally important to the health and happiness for the remaining years of life. So very often there is a large home that was once filled with the family but is now only occupied by “mom”. It is time to consider a move for the better…new friends, little or no maintenance duties, no lawn mowing or hedge trimming. It is time to free Mom up to live her life again. It is time to consider Mountain Meadows 55+ Community in Ashland.
Mountain Meadows is the perfect place to live life to its fullest! There is always something to do — Bridge games, Tai Chi, Mahjong, Bocce Ball, art classes, game or movie nights, poetry jams and reading a great book from the library. There are committees to join; fitness and osteo- stretch classes; meditation; Zumba dance classes; music at the meadows twice monthly and simply too much to mention here. If nature and occasional quiet time is important, there is a 4-acre park with pond and gazebo and park benches strategically located to enjoy the view. Sound like paradise? For so many of the residents it is just that. The National Council on Senior’s Housing thought so too – they gave the Gold Nugget Award for “The Best Small Active Retirement Community in America” (1999) .The Pacific Coast Builders Conference gave the Gold Nugget Grand Award for “Best Senior Housing – Active Adult Category.” (1999)
Isn’t it time for Mom to experience “the Best” and make the move to Ashland and Mountain Meadows 55+ Community? Everyday should be a celebration for mothers because Mom’s deserve the best!
