Meet Your Neighbor: Frances Unruh

March 1, 2019

Ice cream dates led Frances Unruh to The Summit. Frances and her husband often frequented an ice cream parlor and looked at the Life Plan Community across the street.

“I would come get ice cream and fantasize what life would be like at The Summit.” Frances made her case for at The Summit. “I told my husband, ‘you’ve been retired 20 years. When do I get to retire?’”

Frances, whose husband died peacefully at their apartment a year later, loves reading, enjoying friends and traveling. “I felt at home from the minute we came in. The people have been wonderful,” she said. “You definitely stay more engaged when you live here.”

She also volunteers with Meals on Wheels. “I think it’s a great program and I enjoy seeing the clients.”

Her advice for moving to The Summit: “Don’t wait too long. Come and enjoy it while you are able.”
