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!
The Benefits of Social Media Back
As you may know, the World has been taken over by social media. People rarely make phone calls, write letters or drop in for a visit nowadays. Instead they stay connected through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and more. Social media is quick and easy way to share with family and friends all at once in one place. Whether sharing pictures of the kids, updating how your day has been or whatever the case may be, social media has proved to be beneficial for keeping the communication flowing. And the best part of social media; there is no age limit!
Through Facebook you can stay in touch with family, friends or even old pals that you may not have spoken to or seen in years! You can also stay updated on the news, weather, entertainment, sports, and send messages. The possibilities of Facebook are endless. It may not be as bad as you thought. Instead of waiting and waiting for mail to come in or a phone call or text message, you can log in to Facebook and be greeted with endless updates, photos, videos and more from your family and friends. You can browse for hours through photos and videos of the kids and grandkids, nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters. You don’t have to wait for the updates from your family anymore. Staying connected with your loved ones is easier than ever before.
From newspapers to magazines to TV stations and cable news, it seems everyone is adopting Twitter as the coolest thing since sliced bread. The coolest part is that it makes Twitter a great way to keep track of news, sharing your opinion, becoming involved in global conversations or keeping up with you favorite sports team, celebrity, family member, or friend. Twitter is perfect if you want to keep it simple.
YouTube is the perfect platform if you are more of a viewer than a reader. Through YouTube you can view endless amounts of videos including music videos, news outlets, movies, vlogs and so much more! There are billions of videos on YouTube, you have no short amount of options here.
Instagram, the home of photos, photos, and more photos. This is the perfect form of social media if you like pictures. You can scroll all day through the wide variety of images posted through the app. You have the option to follow friends, family, celebrities, sports teams and so much more. Keep updated with those that you love and vice versa. Instagram might be more fun that you originally thought.
Social media doesn’t have to be a bad thing. The benefits that come from social media are tremendous! And who knows, you may end up enjoying it more than you think? So give it try!
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.
