A Fresh Look at JCHE's Senior Living Communities

Posted: February 21, 2013

In the past few days, I’ve had the opportunity to do 4 tours of our properties.  Each time it allows me to see, through the guests’ eyes, a JCHE community.  I also run into residents who stop to tell me something interesting or new or simply to say hello.  Here are some of the things I’ve heard from the tour takers:

  • This appears a place for happy aging.  It’s enticing—the opposite of depressing (as they had expected).
  • So much activity—so much connection.
  • Residents are starting a poetry group at Shillman House.
  • The exercise classes at our sites demand a high level of aerobic energy and build serious strength.
  • Our chess club has very serious players.
  • Our properties are amazingly clean and consistently well-maintained.
  • Our resident service coordinators know the name of every resident, and often the names of their families.
  • The book groups at our sites are reading very challenging books.
  • This is worth trying to replicate!
