We Found Our Groove
Bridge, faith and dancing have always been a part of Max & Carol's life. They found that and so much more when they chose Avera Prince of Peace Retirement Community.
When Max and Carol decided to sell their condo in Nebraska and move into a retirement community, they knew they needed to feel absolute peace about their new home. And after touring five retirement communities and visiting Prince of Peace three times, they knew they had found the right place for them. "We simply had the best feeling here. It’s a place to enrich our spiritual lives and a great place to meet new people, play some bridge and enjoy the dance, so to speak," says Max. It also helped that, according to Max, "it was the best value for our money."
Max and Carol, who have lived at Prince of Peace for almost four years, are editors and publishers of the local "BridgeBuilders Newsletter" and take it upon themselves to organize games and tournaments, but also enjoy teaching other residents how to play the "toughest card game to teach," says Carol.
Just because they are in a retirement community doesn’t mean Max, 82 and Carol, 80 are slowing down. "There is plenty to do," says Carol. Max agrees. "If people are bored, it’s because they choose to be." The couple is adamant about making appointments in the afternoon, since their mornings are occupied with Chapel duties. Max is a lector and sacristan; Carol a minister of Holy Communion. Their afternoons, when not at other appointments, are divided between bingo, jigsaw puzzles, socializing, and of course, cutting a rug in the main social area.
"We didn’t want to wait for a doctor to make the decision for us," Max explains. "We wanted to make our own choice about where we lived before we got sick and the decision was made for us." Max continues, "I don’t subscribe to the theory of staying in your home for as long as possible. Prince of Peace Independent Living is where we’ve found our groove."
