"I'm not ready to make a move now."

Fact: What if you found that Linden Knoll was right for you and would enable you to have a fulfilling lifestyle without the burden of maintaining a house? When would you want to move? The only way to determine if Linden Knoll is right for you is by taking a personal tour and seeing it for yourself. You may even find it easier to plan a move with time on your side rather than waiting and feeling rushed during the moving process.

"I could never leave my house."

Fact: Unlike your current home, Linden Knoll is designed to accommodate your independent lifestyle and anticipate your future desires. Chances are you've lived in your current residence for a while now, and selected it using criteria that are very different from your needs and priorities today. If you look at your home objectively as though you were about to select it all over again, you might just conclude that it doesn't match your lifestyle nearly as well as it once did. Too many stairs? Too much unused space? Too much cost and hassle associated with upkeep, maintenance and taxes? Not enough security? Too much bother and worry when traveling? What would you do in the event that a health concern arises? If any of these concerns have crossed your mind, then Linden Knoll may provide the answers.

"I couldn't downsize to an apartment home."

Fact: At Linden Knoll, we believe "right sizing" is a much better term to describe the healthy process of simplifying and organizing to find new meaning in living. We firmly embrace the 80-20 rule, which states that most people derive 80% of their meaning and enjoyment out of about 20% of their possessions. With our comfortable apartments, you’ll have room for your favorite things. People are amazed when they begin to fully appreciate how much can be done in spaces that are carefully planned. And at Linden Knoll, your living space extends well beyond your front door. Each Linden Knoll residence includes full access to an array of common areas and amenities that no house could ever offer. Linden Knoll is set amidst beautiful gardens and gathering spaces that are a natural extension of your new home.

"I don't want to give up any of my freedom and independence."

Fact: Linden Knoll is all about enhancing freedom and independence, not limiting it. Our goal is to simplify your life by removing the day-to-day stresses and distractions that keep you from focusing on the things that matter most. Want to travel? Simply turn the key to your Linden Knoll apartment home and we'll keep a close eye on things while you're gone. Interested in pursuing long-time interests or developing new ones? Linden Knoll's events and activities provide a broad range of options. Tired of wasting time waiting for unreliable contractors and service personnel? At Linden Knoll, you're assured of prompt, friendly service from staff you will quickly come to know and trust. Not interested in regimented programs and schedules? We're not, either, so you're free to participate in Linden Knoll 's offerings on your own terms and at your own pace.

"If I ever need healthcare, I can make my own arrangements at that time."

Fact: While nobody can predict the future, Linden Knoll can help you be prepared. Our reliable staff is available anytime. And, should the need arise for short-term rehabilitative or skilled nursing care, Linden Knoll residents receive preferred consideration for the Friendly Home, one of Rochester's most respected and experienced nonprofit providers. If you've been a good planner your whole life, why would you not have a plan in place for something as important as your future? There's a lot to be said for knowing where your umbrella is, even on a sunny day.

"My family and other advisors think I should stay where I am."

Fact: We find that even the most well-intentioned family members and advisors often don't fully understand the benefits and value of moving to a community like Linden Knoll. That's why we're always delighted to talk directly with family members and advisors whose opinions you respect. In our experience, once the people closest to you understand everything you will gain from living at Linden Knoll, they are very likely to agree with your decision. Besides, you've made major decisions all your life, so why stop now?
