Reviews - What do customers think about Settling In: My First Year in a Retirement Community?

Settling In  Jan 28, 2010
We moved to a retirement community two months ago. Our daughter suggested this book which we purchased through this site. Reading it caused a lot of laughter since we recognized some of the other and our resident types. We are experiencing the initial phase of euphoria at the present time. We showed the book to the administrative staff and they are considering ordering it for residents.
Enjoyed the book very much.
 
Excellent Book!  Jan 12, 2009
As the daughter of parents who are considering moving into a retirement community, I found this book engaging and insightful. I purchased a copy for my parents and hope they find it helpful.
