“We love the security of the gated community and our beautiful Villa. We have a screened-in porch where we enjoy sitting and taking in the fresh air. We have been married for 72 years and everyone is just so nice and helpful. We look forward to many more years at The Cloisters.”

“I love living in the Atrium apartments. The sunlight gleaming through the glass skylights in the Atrium room gives it the feeling of being outside with resident birds chirping in the background. In addition, there is a variety of activities for everyone on campus. As a published author and writer, I enjoy my volunteer work as associate editor of The Cloisters newsletters.”

“We love living independently in the Villas at The Cloisters. Our Bristol open floor plan makes the Villa very bright and sunny. The Villas are great for their outdoor sitting areas and we love to be outside. The patio is also wonderful for gardening which we enjoy year-round.”
