On our first visit to Asbury, we knew it was where we wanted to "retire." Even before the Covid virus, we were really happy to be living here. But with the onset of the virus we became certain that we could not be in a better place. Every precaution has been taken to keep us safe. The associates have worked tirelessly to see that that we stay healthy, and even though in-person classes and lectures have been cancelled, our campus TV station broadcasts daily exercise classes, a wide range of lectures and programs to keep us busy and entertained. More than ever, we feel very fortunate to live in such a special community.

When COVID first hit, It became very clear very fast that this was going to be a very, very safe place to live. We're part of a larger organization ... and they can bring an incredible amount of expertise. That's real important to know that they have people on their staff ... who have worked on similar kinds of crisis situations and bring experience and knowledge to their response.

I thought I was in pretty good shape when I moved here, but I'm stronger physically, socially and mentally because of our move to Asbury. If I didn't live here already, I would move now, during COVID, in a heartbeat based on my experience here.

I’m a former infection-control nurse, and we decided to move here during the pandemic. Bethany Village was very proactive very early, and I respect that. Even with the safety protocols, you can still meet people. They’re out in the morning walking their dogs and carrying their masks. We were pleasantly surprised by how quickly we made friends. I love it here!

I have never felt safer. If I were in my house, I would have been totally isolated. We have had our meals, groceries, and mail delivered right to our door. Everyone is screened when they go out and when they return. Would I move here today? I wish I had moved here even sooner. I think to myself, 'What was I waiting for?'

Pam Parmer

Moving to Asbury five years ago was a difficult decision for us. We had no idea what a fun and exciting community it would be. We are enjoying the educational, wellness and entertainment opportunities that Asbury offers and are so glad we made the move when we did-while we are healthy and fit and able to take advantage of everything Asbury offers.
