Inside 2 What Does Peace of Mind Look Like? 4 Life Only Gets Better Here

Glenridge Builds A New Club Home Neighborhood Ask our members and they’ll be quick to tell you that something special (some even call it “magical”) happens when people move to The Glenridge. Our pressure-free lifestyle is liberating and empowering, creating an environment where members have the unencumbered freedom to live their best lives. The Key to Flourishing Neurologist and brain health expert Dr. Alan Grindal knows better than most about how to flourish in life’s later years. “It’s about lifestyle,” says the former director of the Memory Disorder Clinic at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. “Of course, you should eat healthy and stay active – but the concept of ‘community,’ where you interact with others on a social basis, is critical. A top-notch facility like The Glenridge, which takes a mind-body-spirit approach to life, is one of the best ways to prevent age-related issues.” That’s what convinced Alan and his wife, Beth, to become members – even though others felt they were making the decision too soon. “People tend to think they’re too young to make the move, but I think the opposite,” says Alan.

“Most wait too long – and they miss out on all the opportunities offered by a community like this. Plus, the potential of developing a condition that makes you ineligible could happen in an instant. The future isn’t always predictable.” Members since 2018, Alan and Beth are living the lifestyle they’ve always embraced – staying fit, volunteering, continuing to learn … and sharing a spacious Club Home with their new puppy, Toby Toby. “Having our own home makes it easy to take Toby out – it prompts us to go for daily walks and be even more Proactively planning for their future, Dr. Alan and Beth Grindal active,” says Beth. “The Glenridge is a friendly, chose a Club Home at The Glenridge. supportive community,” the Living as independently as ever, Sharyn couple adds. “Here, we’ve prepared for loves all the perks of her freestanding the future in an environment where we Club Home, including an open-plan continue to thrive.” interior with high ceilings, lots of natural Life Is Easy light and a backyard with plenty of room for her two long-haired dachshunds, as After serving with the well as space for a garden.

Life Only Gets Better Here! From walking the dogs … to grilling out on the back patio … to taking a leisurely bike ride around the neighborhood, the Club Home lifestyle affords all the benefits of your own home, without any of the responsibilities. Live Longer, Happier Back in his hometown of Valparaiso, Indiana, Jack Allen served on the board of a continuing care community. The onetime judge, attorney and businessman saw that the people who lived there were satisfied and fulfilled. “I watched them live longer and be happier,” he observes. “It was a good experience.” So that’s what Jack and his wife Jody looked for when they decided it was time for a lifestyle change – and they found The Glenridge to be a perfect fit. The Allens selected a Club Home, where they can take full advantage of The Glenridge’s natural setting, scenic campus and walkability. Jody – a former teacher and homemaker – enjoys bird-watching and working in the garden. Accompanied by retrievers Benjamin and Jamison, Le Linquist finds The Glenridge campus ideal for biking.

Grilling out on the patio is one of Jack’s favorite pastimes, with brats and steaks among his specialties. The couple’s advice to those considering a community like The Glenridge: “People wait too long,” Jack says. “Decide what kind of lifestyle you want to live for the rest of your life – and don’t dawdle!”

Golden Opportunity
