Jacaranda Trace is located in Venice, Florida. It is a full-service retirement community. It has Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care all in the same beautiful campus.
The process that someone has to go through to decide whether they'd like to move to a senior housing campus is a difficult one. It feels like, to a lot of our ultimate residents, that they're giving something up in terms of their independence by admitting that they want to move into a place where they can get more service.
What we've found, though, is the people that actually make that step find that they have much more time available to do the things that mean the most to them, and not spend their time waiting for the cable man to show up to fix the cable. But because they're in a more supportive environment, they can still enjoy all of the luxury of living in spacious apartments, and having wonderful neighbors.
But at the same time, not having to worry about the more mundane things like keeping the house clean and maintained, and whether they're going to have to prepare their dinner that night or not. They have the flexibility to do with they want to do, when they want to do it.
And I think that's what, once people come to grips with that, they're not being institutionalized by moving in, then it puts Jacaranda Trace in a whole different perspective in terms of their decision-making process and how positive their life can be in the environment with that we provide.
