Silver Arrow Estates in Broken Arrow offers independent retirement living and is part of the Holiday Retirement network spanning the U.S. Silver Arrow Sales Leader Beth Ashcraft simply and succinctly says, “We provide residents 55 years and older the opportunity to live better. Holiday and Silver Arrow pave the way to a better life. As we get older, it’s harder for us to do stuff. Our staff helps make that process easier with things like house cleaning, preparing meals and getting places where you need to be. And we do all this without your being a burden on your kids or other family members.”
Living life better and on your terms is why over 30,000 retirees call Holiday “home.” Beth honestly believes that their Teammates are “The Masters of Happy.” By simply calling Sliver Arrow Estates, you can make your reservation for a tour plus join staff and residents for a meal as you experience the incredible lifestyle for yourself. Once you visit, you’ll likely be recommending Silver Arrow to family members and friends.
Statistically, nearly 68% of seniors moving into independent living communities do it for more social contacts and activities, and nearly 40% do it to gain freedom and independence. “It’s been proven,” said Beth, “that engaged seniors lead richer, more satisfying lives. We’ve put together a comprehensive program of daily activities and events designed to stimulate the seven dimensions of wellness: Social, Creative, Intellectual, Spiritual, Physical Vocational and Emotional. When you visit, you’ll see how we engage our residents through voluntary activities that enrich all seven of these areas.”
Dr. Bill Thomas joined the Holiday Team as Chief Wellness Officer earlier this year. He spent 25 years working as a geriatrician conducting research on aging and teaching medical students. “One thing has remained perfectly clear to me,” he said, “people value independence.” The wonderful thing about Silver Arrow is that older adults get to have a home of their own, an abundant social life, and enjoy the perks of maintenance-free living and independence.
There’s a reason why thousands of folks who have explored the numerous options available after retirement have chosen Holiday Retirement affiliates for their new home. They are now living good lives with good neighbors, enjoying great food and fun activities, attending exciting events and enjoying convenient, provided transportation. Each resident is able to do this with his or her personal Urgent Response Device by Great Call. With over 45 years of experience and a promise to provide the all-inclusive lifestyle you and your loved ones deserve, this device has the “Fastest Agent Response Time” (According to the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, August 2014), is waterproof and can be worn in the shower.
This is your invitation to call or stop by, have a cup of coffee, talk about options and your next step, and meet some of our residents and friendly staff while you learn much more about senior living than you ever dreamed. “We want to help make your situation better than before and help you find normalcy and balance in your life,” says Beth.
