When it comes to choosing a Lifecare Community, you want to choose a location that will offer you everything you want while affording you access to care, support, engagement and connection. Now more than ever it’s important to find the right community to retire in, as this can make or break your retirement experience. But how do you know where is best? For many, this decision boils down to personal preference.

“While there are many seniors who know exactly what they want in a retirement location, there is a staggering amount of individuals who don’t,” says Pamela Klapproth, CEO at Kendal on Hudson, the only true Lifecare Community in Westchester County. “They may know that they want to live somewhere that has a lot to do, people to be near and a rich history, but they may not look too deeply into it. This can cause many to make the wrong choice about where to retire, as it doesn’t meet their need for fun, adventure and excitement outside of their community life.”

“At Kendal on Hudson, we have the perfect location for just about everyone,” she says. “Here they can enjoy an array of seasonal activities, social opportunities, history and more just outside their door. In fact, many of the residents state that our location is one of the best to retire to, and it’s easy to see why!”
