Meet the People

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

“I don’t have to worry about what to do next because there is always something to do here.”

Meet The Residents Meet The Staff

“We used to eat out at restaurants a lot more, and I assumed we’d continue doing that. But every night, there’s something new and good to eat here. We don’t have to leave to see variety. Also, we came to White Sands to be near the ocean. We didn’t realize that the greatest thing would be the people.”

Truman Johnson

“People would always say, ‘We wish we had come here five years earlier.’ So we thought: What are we waiting for? Let’s get on with it!”

Richard Stoller

“Some people work on committees. Some people only come out to the dining center. We still have residents who go out to work at their businesses every morning.”

Warner Hashagen

“The people here are phenomenal—interesting, fun and truly lovely people—and we’re good friends. It’s a village.”

Karol Evans

“You get to know people from all different careers. Everyone has a story about their life; so the talk around the dining table is so interesting. I am not one who needs a lot of friends, but by coming here I have so many more than I would have had if I lived on my own.”

Carolyn Downey

"This is heaven. I don’t have to worry about my meals. I don’t have to worry about what to do next because there is always something to do here.”

Amelia Salonen
