Listening plays a big role in the selection of a senior living community, as a Twin Cities East Metro resident learned when she visited Vista Prairie at River Heights in South St. Paul.
We’ll call her “Mary.” After that initial visit, the family decided to leave a deposit on an apartment. When her River Heights hosts asked if she wanted to sample some other potential locations before making a commitment, Mary responded, “No, we’re good.”
Was it the quiet neighborhood, or the friendly staff that convinced her so quickly? While those probably contributed, it was more likely two other factors --
-- this flowerpot that the staff had prepared for Mary to take with her. During an initial phone interview, Mary had commented that she’s an avid gardener.
-- that her cat (and best friend) Toby could move in with her.
“She is pretty sad about the transition as she misses her screened in porch where she and Toby shared time together,” reflected River Heights’ Danielle Lloyd. “Well, Toby is now welcome here at River Heights. We’re a pet friendly community.”
Well done, Vista Prairie staff and congratulations, Mary, on your good discernment skills! The gardens at River Heights and several fellow gardeners welcomed you when you moved in recently. We think River Heights will fill you with joy, in addition to Toby, who sits right beside you on the terrace, watching the leaves change color.
