Maggie had been married to her beloved husband, Jack, for over 50 years. They had built a life together in the small town of Port Republic, where they raised their two children, ran a successful hardware store, and were active members of the community.

"They had always talked about growing old together, sitting on the porch and watching the world go by, but fate had other plans."

Jack had been diagnosed with cancer, and despite Maggie's best efforts to care for him, he passed away peacefully at home. Maggie was devastated, but she knew that life had to go on. She couldn't bear to stay in the house where they had built so many memories together, so she made the difficult decision to sell it and move into a senior living community that offered independent living with assisted living options.

At first, the transition was difficult for Maggie. She missed the familiar sights and sounds, and she felt like she was starting over again in a new place. But over time, she began to make new friends and found a sense of community and a place to call home. She started going on outings with the other residents, playing bridge, and attending events and classes at the community center, like bingo with Shelhamer Group.

Maggie also appreciated the support she received from the staff at the senior living community. They helped her with daily tasks like housekeeping and meal preparation, and they were always available to offer a helping hand or a listening ear. Maggie didn't need a lot of assistance at first, but she knew that the option was there if she needed it in the future.

Despite the challenges of losing her husband and starting a new chapter in her life, Maggie was determined to make the most of her golden years. She took up painting, started a book club, and even tried her hand at gardening. She cherished the memories of her life with Jack, but she knew that she still had so much to experience and enjoy in her remaining years.

As time went on, Maggie realized that she had made the right decision in selling her house and moving into the senior living community. She had found a new sense of purpose and belonging, and she knew that Jack would have been proud of her for embracing the future with an open heart and an adventurous spirit.
