TOWER GROVE SOUTH, St. Louis, MO – When Joyce Channel decided it was time to move from her home, she chose Tower Grove Manor, a retirement apartment community sponsored by St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors System.
“Moving to Tower Grove Manor has been wonderful and has exceeded my expectations,” said Channel. “When I saw the apartment, I wanted it!”
In April, the St. Louis native moved into a retirement apartment, which she customized with accent walls in shades of beige, at the urging of her daughter, who lives nearby the Tower Grove South neighborhood. Now she enjoys the visits from her grandchildren.
“The move happened at the right time,” Channel said. “Tower Grove Manor was centrally located between where my son was going to be and where my daughter lived.”
Channel, like many seniors, contemplated downsizing her home, but chose a worry less lifestyle in a retirement apartment in one of St. Louis’ burgeoning communities.
With a scenic view of Tower Grove Park and a close proximity to a variety of shopping and dining, Tower Grove Manor is an affordable retirement apartment community offering a thriving social experience for older adults. Like most retirement apartments, Tower Grove Manor offers health and wellness programs, engaging lectures, and outings to local events.
Tower Grove Manor’s rates for efficiency, one and two-bedroom retirement apartments include 24-hour emergency assistance, dining, all utilities (except cable and phone) housekeeping services and planned daily activities.
Tower Grove Manor offers maintenance-free living, handling everything from shampooing your carpet to offering white glove service in the Marmaduke private dining room. The charm of Tower Grove Manor gives residents the prestige of living in a hotel-style building from the 1920s with roomy garage parking.
They also feature the convenient amenities to age in place, arranging Independence Plus – a program by Senior Solutions offering assistance when a resident needs a little extra help or a little extra pampering.
“Tower Grove Manor is committed to our residents. Our answer here is….Yes! It is our goal to meet and exceed our residents’ expectations for an active, fulfilling lifestyle,” said Heather Finkelston, Tower Grove Manor’s Executive Director. “We are a real family here, full with tradition yet staying current with the ever changing and diverse neighborhood we are proud to be a part of since 1964 in South St. Louis.”
For Channel, joining the Tower Grove Manor community meant developing new friendships.
“I’ve gotten a chance to meet quite a few people. I try not to stay in my apartment. I enjoy the refreshments in one of the three lounge areas. We all talk and we’re in the same company,” said Channel. “You can just be yourself.”
