Work It Out Maria Moya Champions Woods, Houston, TX One of my very first leases here at Champions Woods was signed by this sweet elderly lady named Rebecca. When she came in to drop off her first check, she asked if I could show her how to use the treadmill. Normally I am ecstatic when residents tell me they want to work out, but this time I wasn't. I knew that Rebecca had lost about 90% of her eyesight, and that her vision was quite blurry. At the very least, it would to be difficult for her to use the equipment, and I was concerned that it might not be safe. I walked her over to the fitness center to help her to get started, but she quickly realized that it was not going to be safe for her to use alone. I could tell that she wanted so badly to do some type of exercise – I just had to help her think of something! Then I realized we had the perfect solution – water exercise! It is easy on joints, and our pool is not deep – so she can walk around in the water without any trouble. I bought her some water shoes, a hot pink cover up, and sunscreen. She LOVED the gift bag! She said that no other community has been as thoughtful as we have been, and that she was glad she had decided to make Champions Woods her new home.
Fall Wreath Supplies Melissa Cordaway Westover Oaks Apartments, San Antonio, TX We have a fabulous resident who cares for his mother at Westover Oaks. The mother was upset because she just purchased a new fall wreath for their front door and someone had stolen it. Melissa thought it would be great to purchase a new fall wreath for the woman, write a note, and put it on the door hanger. Soon after we placed the wreath on their door, we received a phone call from the mother. She was crying with happiness and thanking us. WOW'ing is the best!
