Senior Living Center Gets Hefty Upgrade
DALLAS—Some residents choose to live in the vibrancy of Uptown while they are in college or post-college before starting their families. Others migrate back to the scene as empty nesters, choosing the convenience of high-rise living with the proximity to entertainment and restaurants. Cullen and Dolores Rogers spent the last 13 years living in a high-rise in Uptown. Now, the couple is craving a different experience that fits them better. They want to learn new things, participate in exciting activities, be closer to friends and enjoy an environment filled with hospitality and amenities.
This year, the Rogers will move from their condo in Uptown to a spacious apartment in Leonard Rose Villas at Presbyterian Village North. In the midst of a $93 million expansion project, the community will offer them the active lifestyle they crave, as well as opportunities to volunteer and socialize. When they found out that 1,800-square-foot floorplans are available, they were convinced.
“He’s 80 years old and I’m 77 years old, so moving into a senior living community seemed like the right time,” Dolores Rogers tells GlobeSt.com. “We are Dallas natives and have lived here nearly our entire lives. In 1999, we moved to a vacation home in Colorado with the intent of staying there indefinitely but came back in 2003 because we missed the urban life we knew and loved. We bought a condo in Uptown at that time and enjoyed living there the last 13 years. While Uptown is certainly a happening place, we decided it was time to enter a new phase of life. We would benefit from the support of a life care community but would still be within close proximity to everything in the downtown area, especially the Arts District, as well as central and north Dallas. We are looking forward to this new chapter and hope to make new friendships while enjoying maintenance-free living on a warm and friendly campus.”
