What’s on your calendar this fall? The Triangle region has a big city feel with oodles of Southern charm. It’s a city where modern meets historic. There is so much to do and so many things to see that you will need to stay a few weeks to explore every corner of the region. Combined, the Research Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill) has a population of over two million. Springmoor residents have chosen to live in the city because of family, friends, universities or careers. Many have come for a visit and stayed because of the wide variety of cultural activities, restaurants, museums, festivals, parks and sports.
We invite you to come for a visit this fall and check out our Things To Do List! Continue reading →
There was a table for four with one empty seat when Sandy walked into the Rightsizing Marketing Event at Springmoor. She was in the early stages of her search for a new home in Raleigh. Marilyn was seated at the table and invited Sandy to join them in the empty chair. The introductions were made and the two became fast friends during the meeting. Continue reading →
“Puzzling is a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors and meet new people. We are fortunate to puzzle at an entrance area with people coming and going all day.” Eunice, a Springmoor Puzzler, says everyone loves to stop, take a peek and join the conversation. “There’s always lots of laughter at our table,” says Judy Beal.
Judy and Eunice are among the many residents at Springmoor who enjoy puzzling. On almost every floor of every wing, there is a puzzle table with a 500 – 2000 piece puzzle in the works. Friends and family often give residents new puzzles for their floor. Residents purchase a few and they are often traded from floor to floor. After the Creedmoor puzzlers finished Robert Silvers’ Photomosaics, they challenged North Village to see how quickly they could complete the puzzle. Continue reading →
The renovations begin on your new home shortly after you have made your color selections and style requests. Change a large set of closet doors to a narrower set of French doors, move the cable outlet behind the TV wall mount, add a built-in bookcase or customize your closet. All of these personalized requests make your house a home. With every new move-in, Springmoor will customize your home with your paint colors and flooring selections. If the apartment does not have the latest cabinetry, appliances, countertops and bathrooms, you choose these too. If there are additional updates to personalize your home, just ask! We are happy to help design your new home to fit all of your needs. Continue reading →
New visitors are always quick to compliment Springmoor on the neatly manicured grounds and colorful landscaping throughout the campus. Nestled in a neighborhood and built into the topography of the land, the grounds are extremely lush and verdant. Residents are invited to add to their homes with their favorite annuals and perennials. This week our Resident Gardeners share their stories about gardening at Springmoor.
What have you planted this year in the resident garden or outside of your home?
On the South Village side of the campus, we have twenty-three resident gardeners who each have a 10’ x 20’ plot to plant their favorite vegetables and flowers.
For those with floral gardens, we now have a colorful mix of zinnias. Resident Dave Waters started in the winter season with his Hellebores and has continued to have blooms throughout the seasons with Brugmansia, Hibiscus, Star Lilies and Salvia, to name just a few. Continue reading →
You’ve sorted, thrown-away, donated, downsized and packed. All of your kitchen items are in boxes, your clothing is neatly sorted and hanging in wardrobe boxes. Your furniture is ready to be put on the moving truck. Move-in day typically starts at 8:00 in the morning. The crew arrives early to load your belongings into the moving van and deliver everything to your new Springmoor address.
Packing and Preparations
The months prior to the move are filled with anticipation, paperwork, decision- making and so much more. Springmoor residents, Allen and Barbara Page, tell us the decision to move is just the first of many decisions. They felt this decision was a gift to their children. Cleaning out their lifetime home and making their own choices was helpful to the entire family. They were able to choose items to take with them and choose items with sentimental value to give to their children and grandchildren. The simplicity they feel now is wonderful. Continue reading →
