We have many activities and volunteer programs. There is a gigantic heated pool, exercise room and classes, coffee shop, educational classes, huge library, computer shop, arts and crafts shop, woodworking shop, 9 hole golf course, golf and bicycle repair shop, post office, hair salon and very good food from our large dining room. My husband and I have lived here for 3 years and think that this is the best place in the world to live

We're happy here at Penney Retirement. We came here to get closer to Mayo Clinic, and I had radical surgery right after we moved in, but the people have been very nice. We are very pleased with our apartment. We have access to a lot of programs, we eat at least 3 times a week from the cafeteria, and we have some medical facilities here also. We have pretty full service with amenities. We have what we call Commons Building where they have a big round pool and a fitness center, a library, and a classroom. We do have our bank in the commons and also a coffee shop where people could meet and have coffee. But they have a lot of programs, and we are going to have our Christmas parade here in a week or so. We are in our 80's now, and they approached us to downsize that we may need to go into assisted living. We have our own garage for our car, and it is going to be a really big adjustment for us to go into assisted living. We can come and go as we please, we go to our doctors' offices in our car, we go get our groceries, go shopping, and you can leave and go visit relatives. We have everything we need.

My parents decided to go to Penny Retirement Community. I believe it’s a community for retired ministers. It’s very friendly, clean, and peaceful. We talked to numerous residents there. We went to the church service, and it seems like people are very accepting and accommodating. My dad has physical therapy and speech therapy several times a week. They have Bible studies on Wednesday morning, church on Sunday morning, several different Sunday school classes, and a stretch class. They have volleyball when you’re sitting in chair with a beach ball where they try to toss the ball to each other as part of the occupational therapy that they do. My dad has severe Parkinson’s and my mom has rheumatoid arthritis, so that’s one of the things they really enjoy doing. They also have movie nights, documentaries, and discussions about the Bible and history. The community is not like a five-star hotel but more down-to-earth. However, the people are so warm and accommodating of new people that everyone feels very welcome. The nurses and the assistants are just constantly coming and assisting my dad primarily because he cannot get around by himself.

We just returned from visiting PRC for 3 days/nights free. We met with Marketting and were given a good tour and much info about the 200 acre community. There are no gates, fences, or walls and is very safe and friendly. They are trying to keep the ambience of JCPenney who started it in 1926. We have friends living there and they love it! They are very active and have lots of volunteer opportunities there among the other residents. Everyone living there is very happy and friendly, and the best part is probably that residents make up 1/3 of the board, so they help make the decisions. Being a 501c3 facility also means a partial tax write-off for one's financial commitment to it. We were very impressed with the whole visit.

Penney Retirement Community is a beautiful, huge area. It is like 1,000 acres, and they have little cottages that are very close to all the main things like the swimming pool, the fitness center, and the dining room. The people are lovely, very warm, and loving. The staff is excellent, very encouraging, and very helpful. It is not a five-star restaurant, but the food is very nutritious, and they have a good variety and plentiful. They have lots of choices for every meal.

Penney Retirement Community was the one we liked best of all that we've seen so far. The people themselves were a lot friendlier than any of the other places, and they seemed to have more of a religious attitude. We are very much interested in our church, and they seemed to be more interested in that part than any of the others. It was more homelike, the meals are buffet-style, and they had really good meals when we were there. The only drawback was once you reach 85, they won't take you in.

I went to visit my aunt and uncle in Penney Retirement Community. It is a private community and not a public facility. They have their own town, and it is all for assisted living. They have their own post office and their own beauty parlors. It is a whole community for people that goes through phases of retirement. They actually have a house built on the ground, and if they need more care, they move them in an apartment. Then if they need more care from there, then they go into the nursing home part of the town. It is its own little town that operates this whole thing which is amazing. The staff is amazing, very personable, and very informative. The dining facility looks like a national park kind of dining area. It has big cathedral ceilings with stained glass windows. They have beautiful arts facilities and crafts facilities. I actually didn't experience it myself, but they apparently have very good food. They also cater to certain needs, and the food can also be taken out to go to your apartments and homes. They have swimming, dance classes, and exercise classes. They have everything from wood working to pottery to painting and weaving classes. Not everything was open when we were there, so I actually didn't get to see the whole facility.

We have chosen Penney Retirements Community. It appealed to us because it was close to our daughter, and money wise, they were like 25% to 35% less because it was a non-profit corporation. We walked around and toured the facilities. They had a library, an exercise room, and a cafeteria. They had a lot of homes and duplexes, and they had 3 or 4 that were vacant to show us an idea. It very much appealed to us that it was continuous care.

My mother and I visited two facilities in this area ... Penney Retirement Community and Allegro ... approximately 5 years ago since we were looking for a place for her to live that was more suitable than her own private home. We narrowed it down to PenneyRC and she moved into their "independent living facility" in 2007. Mother lived quite comfortably in a 2 br apartment at PRC for about 2 years until she required additional assistance and services. At that time, she moved into a one room apartment (plus bath) in PRC's "assisted living facility" (Beyer House) where she enjoyed residing for approximately 1 year. Unfortunately, Mother fell and broke her hip. She underwent surgery (hip replacement) and after her hospitalization and rehabilitation, she moved from Beyer House to "The Pavilion at PRC" where she could receive more intensive medical assistance than she could get at Beyer House. Mother stayed at The Pavilion for a little over a year. With her advancing Alzheimer's it became apparent that she required more "caretaker" assistance than medical assistance and we moved her to Hagen House which is PRC's "memory-care" unit. Mom has been living at Hagen House for about 8 months now and we are all pleased with the level of care and the staff that cares for her. The thing that we appreciate most about PRC is the ability to move her within the various units depending on the care required. We chose PRC because of this flexibility and because it is a Christian based facility which was important to both my mother and to us, her family.
