My name is Sandy Gordon, and this is my companion Daisy Mae!
I moved to Kingsbridge Retirement Community shortly after it opened, in October 2019. It was quite an adventure, at first. Just a few of us living in this beautiful brand-new building. We got to know our new neighbors and as time passed we became good friends. The suites are very comfortable and there are choices to be made as to which suite you would like to live in. I live on the 7th floor in a unit that looks down on the inner gardens, and patio. It is a quiet place, not many street sounds can be heard. I just love my studio.
The public areas like the library and the bar are great places to meet for a morning coffee or a pre-dinner drink. The dining room is our pride and joy. The chef and all the dining room/kitchen staff try to accommodate our dietary needs, ie. diabetes, celiac, and many food allergies. If you want to keep busy, there are many choices on different days – VON exercise twice a week, yoga, swimming in our saltwater pool, and just walking our lovely long hallways for that little bit more exercise we all need. Most evenings you can find some residents playing bridge and other card games in the lounge. We have our knitting club, baking events, a book club, and an active garden club. Our library is a lovely place to sit, relax and read.
The friendly front desk staff are always ready to answer any questions you might have and Vance and Joe will try to solve most problems you may have, from computers to household repairs. We are a pet-friendly building. So Daisy Mae is welcome everywhere except of course the dining room which is off-limits, much to her dismay. Daisy Mae is a small golden retriever who loves to be with people.
Our adventures continue. Please come and visit us at Kingsbridge Retirement Community, and perhaps you too will join us!
