It’s been a busy summer and fall at Cloverwood! In August, we hosted our second annual Resident Panel. We invited members of the community to Cloverwood to hear firsthand from our residents about what life is like here. Residents shared stories about why they chose Cloverwood as their senior living community, how they downsized, and their experiences as Cloverwood residents. Ann, who has lived in a patio home for five years, said “It’s the best thing I ever did!” Bob, another patio home resident, discussed how he and his wife used a chart to evaluate different communities they were considering. Noting the helpfulness and outstanding service of Cloverwood’s staff, Bob said, “This is the greatest and most successful move we’ve made.” Apartment home resident Joan shared that she and her family “fell in love with Cloverwood.” Joan enjoys amenities such as transportation to the RPO and other cultural attractions. Residents Jack and Susan, who have only lived at Cloverwood for a few months, enjoy socializing with their neighbors and all of the amenities such as the gym, billiards room, café and library, but to them what really sets Cloverwood apart is the ambience. Susan said, “I’ve always lived in old houses. The patio homes are light, bright and very well built with marvelous storage. I can’t say how happy we are here.” Jack added: “I practiced medicine for a long time. My advice is don’t wait until it’s too late.” Apartment home resident Joe sums it all up by calling Cloverwood “Shangri-la!” Residents were happy to answer questions from our guests, including the extra assurance of the Friendly Senior Living continuum should the need arise, and the variety of ways to be involved in committees such as welcoming, dining, library and more, as well as monthly Residents’ Council and town meetings.
In September, Cloverwood hosted a very successful Antiques Appraisal event for both residents and the community. Three appraisers who have appeared on the Antiques Roadshow program, as well as two local appraisers, evaluated a very interesting array of items including jewelry, paintings, old toys, furniture, memorabilia and much more. This event is just one of countless examples of how Cloverwood provides a variety of opportunities for residents to learn, grow, engage and explore their many interests.
Reflecting the satisfaction of our residents with life at Cloverwood, we were honored to recently be named a recipient of the Excellence in Action award. Cloverwood is one of only two independent living communities in Monroe County and one of only six in the entire state of New York to receive this recognition.
