Lion’s Club presented program on status of life at Westview
Ronda Hutt, director of the Westview Retirement Community along with resident Gladys Tharp gave an update status to the Grant Lions Club on Jan. 11.
Ronda said that they had 26 units out of 29 that were filled with occupants and the center was doing well.
Ronda then asked Gladys Tharp to share with the Lions as to why she moved to Westview.
Gladys said she moved to Westview because, “I had too much house for my needs and the yard was demanding too much attention. Besides, my health wasn’t what it used to be.”
Gladys shared how she felt about living at Westview. “It’s so nice to have someone to visit and talk too,” she said. “And I don’t have to buy groceries and the activities are fun.
“Everyone gets treated with respect, the staff and meals are terrific. I highly recommend Westview to anyone over 65.”
Ronda said the rates are very reasonable, reporting that a standard unit rents for $1,509 per month and the deluxe units are $1,689 per month, which includes meals and room cleaning–a tremendous bargain.
Ronda also indicated they were running on a very tight budget to keep costs down and was asking for help from volunteers to present programs of interest to the residents, someone with a green thumb to care for the flowers and other landscape amenities and some maintenance such as painting and repair work.
Give volunteering some thought, as it would be appreciated, she told the club members.
