March 1, 2020: Avenu at Natick Focuses on Active Social Living
Hear what our residents have to say!
When Linda Hoffman decided to move back to New England to be closer to her two children and five grandkids, her one big requirement was finding a place to live with a real sense of community. “I’m a social person,” Linda said. “I need to know my neighbors and feel like I’m part of something.” After looking at several independent living communities and apartments, she discovered Avenu at Natick, a new 62+ apartment community, and was one of the first residents to sign a lease. “I wasn’t going to move until I found the right place,” continues Linda. “The social atmosphere was a big motivator. We get together for breakfast every day and check in on each other. My grandkids are only 20 minutes away and can come here to stay with me, use the pool, see a movie or go to the mall.”
Avenu is for when you're ready to relax without slowing down.
