“As the mother of a single child, I want to relieve him from the responsibility and concern of daily caregiving. I am confident this decision will allow us both a more independent future.” Lonna Williams
Yesterday I visited Southern Heritage, an assisted living community in East Ridge, Tennessee, tucked away on a quiet, residential cul-de-sac.
The director, Becky Sullivan, was gracious to take me on a tour of their common areas and well-appointed apartment homes. She also told me about her twelve years with Southern Heritage, virtually unheard of among local senior care directors. I was struck by the home-like atmosphere of the community, its small size and the sociableness of its residents. I also took note of its novel pricing schedule, providing a listing of services at a single, bundled flat rate.
For more information, contact Becky at (423) 490-0119.
“A long term care policy was important to me for peace of mind and taking the burden off my daughter, should something happen to me or my husband. I am also going through trials with my mother, who is 91 years old and recovering from a broken hip. She also has dementia. I feel it’s so important to be ahead of the game so that retirement can be a good time without the worry of going broke from an unexpected illness or injury.”
“Long term care insurance is important to us because we know that it wil be there for us if we need it. Thank you Gail for your help.”
