At Element 74, we love working with people who are passionate about what they do; and the staff at Chateau Girardeau is just that.
The Chateau is a Continuing Care Retirement Community that is redefining the stereotypes of retirement as we know them. They think of retirement as a new beginning, and try to implement that in everything they do. The more I researched their campus and amenities for this post; the more I wanted to retire there myself! Here are 5 ways The Chateau Girardeau is changing retirement:
1. Boredom Is Impossible
The staff at Chateau Girardeau are constantly coming up with fresh and fun ideas for guests to make the most of their retirement. There’s countless clubs, classes and social events to choose from every day. Residents have the option of joining a book club, cooking classes, movie nights, Thai chi, local business tours, trips to River Campus for performances and concerts, and even fireside nights’ out just to name a few.
2. No More House Work
Say goodbye to doing dishes and mopping the floor; you have housekeeping staff for that. It’s hard to even imagine what it would be like not having anything to clean or keep up, but it sounds pretty great.
3. The Food
Not only are you eating restaurant quality food year-round; you can even order items you’re craving at any time. The menu items are changed often so residents don’t get bored; and believe me, you don’t want to miss a meal made by Chef Walter Lents.
4. You Don’t Give Up Your Freedom
At Chateau you can come and go as you please, and have visiting hours’ day and night no matter where you live in the community. There are even scheduled day trips so you can still have outings around the city without lifting a finger.
5. There’s Even a Bar
Chateau really thought of everything, here. I was already impressed with Chateau, but now I’m convinced. After a rough day of golfing or taking a paint class, you can have a drink to take the edge off.
I’m sure I’ve already convinced you that this retirement community is one of the best, but to see more great things about The Chateau Girardeau visit their brand new website, designed by your favorite digital production company.
