The first thing I noticed when my husband, Woody, and I came to inquire about taking up residence at Frey Village was the air of friendliness. None of the Frey Village family knew us, yet there were smiles and remarks, “You’ll like it here.”
Woody and I have appreciated the privilege of living at Frey Village in our Tower residence. Recently, Woody’s health has declined. The decision to move Woody to a room in personal care to better care for his needs was much easier for me through the interview process. I felt at ease with our decision. My questions and doubts were readily answered by our Director of Residential Services, Deanna Noble.
It takes special people to care for the folks of Frey Village, and Frey has them. The maintenance department is especially helpful; they make sure that services are taken care of quickly and courteously.
I enjoy spending time with the many residents of Frey. I’m grateful for the privilege of volunteering in the reception area. Spending time at the front desk allows me to get to know our Frey Village family.
The Lutheran Home at Topton
Living at The Lutheran Home at Topton is pleasant and comfortable. I have a large, sunny room with a lovely view. Meals are tasty, the nurses are kind and caring, and the housekeepers keep the facility clean and tidy. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. I enjoy the many social events that are available every day.
The Lutheran Home at Topton
I found personal care to be very friendly and the exercise and activities are great! I also enjoy the trips we take off-campus.
We were happy with our beautiful home on the lake in Boiling Springs; however, we started feeling overwhelmed by its maintenance. With both of us being “70 something” we realized we were somewhat house bound relative to its upkeep, not traveling as much as we would like and that financially, it was time to plan for our future home and care; not waiting for circumstances and having someone else make this decision for us. After a comprehensive search, we simultaneously said to one another “Cumberland Crossings, that’s the one!” Beautiful grounds, lovely mountain views, walking paths surprising us with wildlife, great dining, wonderful people who speak to one another, wave to one another, support one another; a staff that is so considerate to every need – social, medical – and in friendship. This is our home. This is Cumberland Crossings.
Life at Cumberland Crossings has exceeded our expectations. Tom sings in the chorus and enjoys the library and discussing history with other residents. Betty enjoys aquatic exercise, bible study, and volunteering in the gift shop. We are both still active in the Carlisle community while also enjoying the company of our many new friends. The most beautiful music in the world is the sound of someone else shoveling our sidewalk or mowing our beautiful green grass! We are active and healthy and plan to stay that way for a long time, but it is very good to know that, should we need it, help is right at hand, only a phone call away. Looking back, we can honestly say, we made the right move!
