Marshfield Couple Loves Everything About Village at Proprietors Green

DSC_0288Maura and Ken Rand found exactly what they wanted at Village at Proprietors Green – the perfect blend of independence and convenience to compliment their busy lives. Maura, who enjoys the regular visits hummingbirds make to their terrace door, says, “The atmosphere here is incredible. Our apartment is spacious, open and has a wonderful garden view.” 

The couple, who live in Independent Living, particularly enjoys the community’s location and all of the opportunities it affords. Ken is a sixth generation Marshfield native who is happy with the easy commute to family businesses Rand-Handy Oil Company and Shore Pools and Services. Maura appreciates the close proximity of Roche Brothers and being able to walk to Marshfield Tavern to listen to Bob Sylvia on acoustic guitar. “The town has a lot to offer,” she says.

Village at Proprietors Green has much to offer onsite, too, and the Rands are pleased with its wide array of amenities and services. “The dining room is charming, and the dinners are always delicious,” says Maura. “And the servers are wonderful. When we see them around town they always stop to chat.” Entertainment programs, the putting green, movie nights, cocktail parties, and special events are also on the couple’s social calendar. “I recently left early from an event I was attending so I could get back to the Village in time for that day’s entertainment,” says Maura. “It’s also nice to see a good movie and not have to get into the car and drive home afterward.”

The Rand’s 13-year-old yellow Labrador retriever Toby settled right into his new home when the couple moved to Village at Proprietors Green in July 2015. A trained Canine Good Citizen dog, he loves going for walks and the attention he gets from neighbors and friends.

“I can’t say enough about the people who work here,” says Maura. “The staff is such a warm, accommodating group of people. We feel like they are our friends.”

Allerton House Assisted Living Offers Summer Short Stays

15809461_ladies_cookiesWelch Healthcare and Retirement Group’s Allerton House Assisted Living Communities offer Summer Short Stays in furnished apartments that provide seniors the privileges of long-term residency without a long-term commitment. Amenities and services include three delicious meals daily, 24-hour staff and emergency response system, medication reminders, wellness programs, and a range of activities, events and outings.

Individuals who elect this short-term option can enjoy the comforts of home and peace of mind. There are several different kinds of Short Stays to choose from.  

Often, adult children who serve as caregivers will opt for a Vacation Short Stay for one or both of their parents during the typically heavily scheduled summer vacation months. Other times, family members may find that a respite stay is a perfect transitional step following a parent’s hospitalization. Still other times, the Respite Stay serves as a bridge between short-term rehabilitation and a safe transition back home or to long-term residency at one of the company’s assisted living communities.

Many Short Stay residents, once having taken a “test drive” of the assisted living lifestyle, decide to make a permanent home with Allerton House, according to the communities’ marketing directors.   

Find the Assisted Living Community most convenient to you on the Welch Healthcare & Retirement Group website.
