The year 2020 was like no other. According to a recent poll in the Washington Post, readers described it in terms ranging from “exhausting” … to “chaotic” … to “surreal.”

Whatever your feelings, it’s safe to say that the past 12 months forced all of us to view life differently. As the year winds down and we look back on this holiday season, we realize more than ever that what matters most in life doesn’t come in a box under the tree.

In fact, the most important gift you can ever give yourself or your loved ones is one that you can’t buy – not even online.

For older adults, it’s the knowledge that your financial future is protected … the assurance that your long-term health needs will be taken care of … and the peace of mind that you’ll be safe and secure in an environment dedicated to your well-being and quality of life.

That’s the gift that Harold and Libby Ward gave to their family. After living in their home of more than 50 years, the Wards came to realize that their best interests, as well as those of their children, required a more realistic approach to what their futures might bring.

“The Mayflower was an easy choice,” explains Harold. “The Winter Park location, the community’s reputation and time-tested record, the quality of its operations, and its management and staff – all were significant factors in our decision.”

As a Life Plan Community, The Mayflower gives you control over your future long-term care needs, removing the burden from you and your family. If you ever need assisted living, memory support or skilled nursing, those services are available right on our campus – at a cost you can predict and plan for.

Plus, with no more worries about the house and the yard, you’ll have the freedom to live life on your own terms and the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve given yourself and those you love the best gift ever.

“As residents for more than two years now, Libby and I are enjoying first-hand what we had observed prior to moving here,” Harold adds. “There’s never a dull moment.”

A gift that needs no occasion, The Mayflower should always be on your list. And, in 2021, you’ll find even more reasons to consider it, as we’re about to break ground on our brand-new neighborhood: Bristol Landing.

Nestled among green space, ponds and walking trails, Bristol Landing will offer spacious Waterview Residences with open-concept living spaces, high ceilings and lots of natural light; an elegant Club House and Bistro featuring a theatre room, game/billiards room and al fresco dining; and a state-of-the-art Health Center that houses skilled nursing, short-term rehab and memory support.

Don’t wait: Now is the time to get the best choice of floor plans and locations, to lock in pre-construction pricing, and enjoy special perks. There’s no better time to give your loved ones – and yourself – the gift of a lifetime.
