What a lively beautiful semi-resort community. The residents I saw who are senior, active, happy and healthy. There are several types of housing available. The activities are so numerous that it hard to decide what to do. There are over two dozen clubs here. There is an indoor pool with water aerobics every day. Many of the buildings are single level and you can walk out into beautiful grounds with trees, flowers and birds. There are even one eagle family in one of the tall trees. The dining room serves excellent five course meals. Stanwood area is a nice growing communty away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Warm Beach Senior Community is like an apartment building. They serve four meals a day. The people who were there, I hate to say, is depressing. Many of them were not well, and could not speak. The group of people that we happen to see during lunch, very few of them were enjoying themselves and having a nice lunch. Some of them could hardly eat their lunch. We certainly care about these people but we're not ready to join that group. We're in our 80s, and very active. They have great amenities for people. One of the problems is we're so active to be just in an apartment in a large building full of people who can hardly walk. It isn't my cup of tea. I know what I have to do. However, the people in charge there are very caring. It was just depressing to us. But the facilities, the people, the amenities they have were fine. We saw the places where they have art activities, movies, lectures, and a coffee room where people get together. The staff was outstanding in their care for the people living there.
