We watched Glenbrooke being built and knew right away that we would be selling our home to enjoy our retirement here. We have been here since 2003 and we will continue living here. Glenbrooke’s staff is second to none and they have become our family. Our friends that live here at Glenbrooke are also more like family. We enjoy the activities and lifestyle that Glenbrooke offers and truly believe there is not a better place to live out our retirement!
June is Oral Health Month Back
June is Oral Health Month
Our teeth play a vital role in our lives. They allow us to flash a smile at our friends or chew our favorite meal. It is vital to keep our teeth and gums healthy as issues can increase or worsen with age. June is Oral Health Month; a month to celebrate healthy teeth and make sure you are properly practicing oral health. Regular trips to the dentist are a great way to make sure you are staying on track. It would be detrimental not to keep up with a routine. Here are a few easy tips and reminders to make sure you are taking care of your teeth and gums at home.
- Brushing is key for healthy teeth and gums. This will keep away cavities and prevent gum disease. There are special toothpastes if you are experiencing sensitivity in your teeth- though it is always a good idea to ask your dentist if the problem persists.
- Flossing is another important part of oral health. Food can often get stuck in between teeth. Flossing is an easy way to remove anything built up there. It is also a good way to help prevent gum disease. Mouthwash is another good way to take care of your teeth and gums. It eliminates bacteria and gives us fresh smelling breath.
- Proper cleaning of dentures is also important for both oral and overall health. Be sure to handle your dentures with care. It is necessary to clean your dentures daily and to store them properly when you are not wearing them.
Oral health is important because it can affect our overall health and self-confidence. Be sure to visit your dentist regularly for checkups, as they will be able to assist you with any problems or concerns. More importantly, be sure you are following the steps for good oral health at home. That way you can have healthy teeth and be confident about your smile.
As a widower, I felt extremely lonely and disconnected in my neighborhood and home. My friend introduced me to the idea of retirement living in an independent retirement community. I looked at several in Brevard County, but none had the sense of family or friendliness that Glenbrooke has. I’m here at Glenbrooke to stay!
I waited too long to make the move to Glenbrooke. I visited many times and told several of my friends to move, but couldn't seem to brave it for myself. The staff at Glenbrooke never gave up on me, and even helped to see me through the selling of my home and assisted with all the arrangements to make the move! I now feel that I have regained my zest for life and am proud to say that I have found the person I enjoy spending all my time with. I would have never had such an opportunity staying in my house. I am truly at home here!
My husband and I selected Glenbrooke as our home of choice to enhance our retirement lifestyle, but never thought about what Glenbrooke would offer if either of us passed away. After his passing, our children asked me to move closer to them. Even with my limited vision, I am able to maintain an independent, active, vibrant and fulfilling lifestyle. The staff is always available to meet any wants or needs that I may have, and they always do it with a smile and a hug.
Moving to Glenbrooke is the best decision I have ever made. I feel safe, secure and completely at home. My friends and family who come to visit can’t believe that my apartment is so spacious and beautiful! They are always complimenting me on my home and I never get tired of hearing the words “what a nice apartment”. The friends and family I have gained since moving here have definitely helped fill a void in my life, and I have peace of mind everyday knowing I have the freedom to engage as much or as little as I want.
I LOVE Living at Glenbrooke! They truly care about us. We asked for a change to the food and it was done quickly and is delicious. Thank you, Glenbrooke for taking such great care of us and making sure we are happy residents.
