Make Your Home at Chancellor’s Village | Senior Lifestyle

Posted by in Community Spotlights.

Most people have strong feelings about the place they call home, often describing home as a state of mind rather than a physical place. At Senior Lifestyle, we wholeheartedly agree! The elements that make a home are different for each individual, but each home shares an underlying sense of comfort, freedom, and safety.  Chancellor’s Village embodies those elements in a unique, beautiful atmosphere that says “Welcome home!”

Lydia Child, a 19th century activist, once wrote, “Home – that blessed word, which opens to the human heart the most perfect glimpse of Heaven, and helps to carry it…” Dosha Delozier, for example, calls Chancellor’s Village her “little bit of heaven”. Dosha moved to the community almost three months ago, learning about the senior community after following the Chancellor’s Village transportation van while out with her family. Dosha knew nothing about her new home until this unexpected encounter, but now says that the care she receives is above and beyond her expectations. After a lifetime of caring for others, Dosha enjoys the comfort and ease of her new home at Chancellor’s Village.

Transportation was a key factor for Fran Fredericks when she was looking for a senior community to call home. When she stopped driving, Fran worried about getting to church, running errands, and giving up the freedom of going when and where she wished. The transportation service at Chancellor’s Village, which runs five times daily five days per week, and to church on Sunday, erased those worries for Fran as well as her daughters. Fran says that, at the age of 92, she feels that Chancellor’s Village is the best and safest place to be.

Carol and Roy Britton have been married for 58 years. When they moved into their two-bedroom apartment at Chancellor’s Village, Carol was delighted to learn about the many activities available in the senior community, and equally delighted to let someone else do the cooking so that she could participate in activities like her favorite pastime in her new home, water aerobics. As an artist, Roy enjoys taking part in art shows held at Chancellor’s Village, such as the upcoming event on August 16th. Carol and Roy’s daughter and son-in-law are relieved that they no longer have to worry about their parents and say they rest better at night knowing that Carol and Roy call the community their home.

19th century writer Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. claimed that “Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts” and Chancellor’s Village is a wonderful place to call home! An upcoming event, an art exhibition on August 16th from 2 to 4 pm, showcases work from the community’s artists-in-residence as well as other local artists. On August 29th, a seminar highlighting selling a home through auction is scheduled at 2 pm. To RSVP to these events or plan a visit of this beautiful senior community, please call 540-786-5000 or visit the Senior Lifestyle website.
