Dee traded a nice suburban home with an in-home caregiver for a senior living community, so her husband could thrive the last two years of his life. And while he did just that, she drove herself to work every day. After he passed, people always asked her why she stayed. Certainly, she was capable of fending for herself. That wasn’t the point. She told them she was happy, she’d made new friends and enjoyed good meals without having to shop, cook and clean. She had everything she could possibly need and no mortgage, property taxes or homeowner responsibilities. Why would she dream of living anywhere else? When the pandemic came, she felt the same way. Headline panic and fears of the unknown didn’t drive her from her senior living community. She didn’t need to be there. She wanted to be there. She had faith in her Watermark family. And while Watermark took every precaution and kept everyone informed, residents adopted technology. Dee continued her exercise classes and book club meetings virtually on Zoom. She continues to employ that technology today, enjoying FaceTime with family and playing blackjack with her great-grandchildren near and far.
