How a nationwide search led Ellen and Michael to Springmoor

For the past 15 years and until this past June, Ellen and Michael Rogers lived in Eugene, OR, home of the University of Oregon. When Ellen retired from her work at the university, the pair moved across the country to Springmoor – a move that was years in the making.

So, Michael embarked on a nationwide digital search for the perfect place to retire, and it had to be a CCRC. The pair eliminated a few regions right away – the cost of California, the cold of the Northeast, the heat of the deep South, the crowds of major cities – and then discovered that the Raleigh, NC area was home to several CCRCs.
