With current restrictions in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are depending on technology now more than ever. Tools that are available to us virtually make it possible to continue with our plans right from home. If you or a loved one is considering making a move into a retirement community, the good news is there are plenty of ways to get information in a safe and convenient way!
Explore the Website and Social Media
Every community’s website should be filled with important facts about everything from amenities and services to floor plans. Some communities such as Riddle Village even make it possible to request or download a brochure right from your home. It isn’t just the main website you should look at for information. Social media is a great way to see what day-to-day is like in each community, recent news, and even see comments from those who are familiar with it.
Virtual appointments and tours make it possible to explore a community just as you would in the past. Sales representatives should be familiar with setting up a video call to answer any questions and go over the community in more detail to meet your personal needs. You may even see what each apartment-style looks like and what happens in common areas. Ask your sales representative if virtual tours of these areas are an option. Pictures and videos can help you to visualize what living in a community looks like.
Connect with Residents and Employees
The best source of information is the people who are most familiar with the community: the residents and staff! Residents are always happy to talk with prospective clients about why they chose a certain community, what their daily life there is like, and advice for making the decision. Additionally, every department in the community is always happy to talk with people who are looking to learn more. You may want to speak to someone in dining about your diet or the different menu options available, or request a calendar of events from the activities Department to see what interests you.
We know these are unique times, but Riddle Village will do everything we can to make it easy for you to learn more about us. Please reach out to us with any questions at 610-891-3700. We look forward to welcoming you back into our community!
