Meet the People

A community is only as good as its residents. Ours are pretty amazing.

“I have everything I need right here and a lot of time to focus on my volunteer efforts.”

Meet The Residents   Meet The Team

“I like the location of the community and the security I feel here. I have everything I need right here and a lot of time to focus on my volunteer efforts and the new activities I’ve started since moving, including line dancing, drama group and Wii bowling. There’s so much to do!”

Ruth Levey

“From my experience and observation, I believe people should find and move into a community while they’re still active and in good health. It’s important to be part of a community and enjoy all the benefits available. If you do that, you’ll have a very rich and rewarding experience.”

Forrest Garchow

“I am grateful to each and every one of the Rosewood team members that either worked directly or indirectly with me. When I had emergency back surgery, I lost the feeling in both of my legs. When coming to Rosewood Health Center, my therapists stressed patience and hard work, which I learned, and it has taken me a long way in my recovery. Now, I’m walking again! The team members are truly wonderful people who made a huge impact in my life.”

Bob Armstrong

“I used to visit some friends who lived here and I saw how happy they were here. But I didn’t know just how wonderful it was until I moved here myself. I love how many opportunities there are to be active and involved. And the staff here is so friendly; they’re what make Rosewood outstanding.”

Dottie Hefner

“Moving here was a great decision. In fact, we wish we’d done it earlier. Don’t wait. If you think you’ll be ‘ready’ to move to a community in 10 years, I would advise you to do it now. You won’t regret it.”

Robert Heinley

“We love that we have a place to go out to dinner every night. We don’t have to cook or clean. We just get to enjoy our time together over wonderful meals with caring and friendly people. Living here has allowed us to do what we want.”

Sue Heinley

“On August 23, 1986, I moved into Rosewood. That is nearly 30 years ago and I’m still here. My family thinks it’s the best decision I ever made!”

Barbara Lea Johnson
