Personally, I love the area, especially because of the abundance of the arts. The Barrington is the perfect place to be when your home is too much, because you can have more freedom. It’s never too late to discover new things to do or to make new friends. We love Life Care and the fact that it gives us a true feeling of security. The important thing is to do it now and not wait, because it’s harder to make changes later.

It’s a great location, the best plan, top care. I visited four different places and The Barrington was the winner by far. The right time to move here is when you’re tired of the house and ready to have some fun! The wrong thing to do is wait and find yourself without a plan, because you and yours will be affected. Start living and stop worrying!
Caring for a family friend, we saw firsthand what deteriorating health can do when you haven’t made a good plan. We wanted that security and to know that while we could be close to our children and grandchildren, we would not be dependent on them. Both of us grew up in an extended family situation when an elderly grandparent came to live with us and we did not want to be in that position ourselves, though each of our children offered it.
Once we made the decision to move, choosing The Barrington was easy. It is the only multilevel care community in Carmel; if our health needs change, it will not be necessary to move. We liked the fact that it is a not-for-profit. Also, it’s near family, friends, church and many cultural activities. We were attracted to the fitness center, the underground parking, the premium upgrades…all the little things that just made the transition easier because you have so much to look forward to. We are excited to spend more time with our book group and less time cooking!
I selected a first-floor, two-bedroom apartment. I have a darling little Chihuahua who is very friendly, so that will be convenient for me. I was drawn to The Barrington because of the location, the beautiful building and Life Care; I hope I’ll always be able to care for myself financially, but Life Care gives you security. As I grow older my needs will change, and I wanted the safety of assisted living. When you make this decision, you must make up your own mind and follow your desires. I chose what is best for me.
