Independent Retirement Living Testimonials

“After attending an open house at Seeland Park in Grinnell, we began thinking about the next stage of our lives. In looking ahead, we wanted to be able to put our energy toward our interests and hobbies and not toward the maintenance and upkeep of our home. We have made many new friends at Seeland Park and each phase of our lives has been better than the last.”

Don and Joan Milburn, Seeland Park residents since 2003

“I can’t think of a better place to enjoy this stage of my life! I encourage others to come here while they are still active enough to enjoy all the activities. I feel fortunate and blessed to live in this friendly community with its beautiful campus, maintenance-free living, and all the facilities and activities it offers. I especially enjoy the great fitness programs offered here and playing with others on our bocce ball court.”

Jolene Jones, Seeland Park resident since 2003

“I made the decision to start living the easy life before retiring! I love the convenience of living in a 55+ community where I can still own my home but no longer have the work, headaches, or unexpected costs associated with maintaining a home. Since I still work full time, I really appreciate having my non-work hours free to spend as I want; and when I do retire, I will be able to travel and know that my home is being taken care of during my absence.”

June Watkins, Seeland Park resident since 2011

“It’s a perfect scenario. Knowing that you don’t have to worry about snow removal. Knowing you don’t have to mow your lawn or worry about the maintenance of your house. If the dishwasher goes out and you need a replacement, it won’t cost you a dime. Try to put a price on those things! Plus, our maintenance fees are very reasonable. The value you get for what is offered is unparalleled. This has been the best move we have ever made. We’re thankful to have made this move while we can still enjoy retirement living at it's best!"
