The Waiting Place

Home » Events » The Waiting Place

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a Dr. Seuss classic and a favorite of mine to read my children.  Written in Dr. Seuss one and only style, the books main character refered to simply as “you,” travels to numerous places eventually ending up in a place called “The Waiting Place.”  In “The Waiting Place” everyone is just waiting for something to happen and it is not a place you want to be.  “The Waiting Place” reminds me of a place many folks considering a move to Park Springs find themselves and, with apologies to the master, I’d like to share my version.

The Waiting Place… for people just waiting.

Waiting for a house to sell or the market to rise,

or a birthday to come or go or to win the lotto.

Or waiting for my kids to say yes or someone to say no,

or a health issue to arise or home health to arrive.

Or an elevator to come or the location to change,

or to maintain independence or perhaps become dependent.

Everyone is just waiting.

If you find yourself in the waiting place, check back here periodically or better yet contact one of our Residency Counselors for assistance with your retirement planning as they may just provide keys that will enable you to move on to great places.
