Ginger Cove Resident Testimonials

“My kids love coming to see mom at Ginger Cove! They have sleepovers and love going for a swim in the pool. It has been nice having her closer to my home. With her in Annapolis, we can do so much more than we ever did.”

Benefits of Living at Ginger Cove:
“There are many amenities at Ginger Cove that I love for my mom. Most importantly, the emergency pull cords and the daily check on each resident. It relieves us greatly to know she is being so well cared for. The bank and the pantry are fabulous because if she is ill or there is inclement weather, she does not have to leave Ginger Cove. Her needs can be met right there on campus. ”

“The best part about living at Ginger Cove is the sociability. I have been playing tennis in the Annapolis area for so many years. I love it because it is active and social.”

“Ginger Cove is a comfortable place where I feel secure and where I do not worry about my future. I tell my friends that you should move in here while you are still healthy enough and active enough to enjoy all the various options that are open to you daily.”

“What made me passionate about the library at Ginger Cove is the importance of reading in my life and I wanted to share my enthusiasm with others. I always have loved reading and at one time taught disabled children to read, which was extremely rewarding.”

Advice to Prospective Residents:
“Come in with a positive attitude, don’t wait too long and come before you are ill and unable to participate in the incredible offerings here. There is absolutely something for every type of person.”

“I think it is difficult to discipline oneself to exercise alone, so being in a class makes it fun. Water aerobics is a godsend. We have an excellent teacher who varies our exercises but keeps us working on our strength, flexibility, balance, stamina, cardio conditioning and muscular endurance. I love knowing I am keeping fit while having a great time in the process.”

Reasons to Love Ginger Cove:

“Moving to Ginger Cove was a gift to our children and it was the best decision we ever made. We are much healthier, physically and mentally, due to a low-stress lifestyle and active social life. We immediately connected with our new neighbors.”

“I was active in the Charlottesville, VA art community. I volunteered for the Watercolor and Fine Arts Committee and had a successful exhibit there and then I took over the gallery. It was an activity I know how to do and the gallery has become so popular here, local artists are always asking to be shown here.”

“If I could give someone who is considering moving to Ginger Cove advice it would be, don’t wait. Move in today. I never hear anyone say, “I came too young.” Instead, I hear, “I should have come sooner.” The residents of Ginger Cove are a welcoming group, and there are so many activities, interest groups, recreational facilities, that there is something to catch the interest of every resident.”

Benefits of Living at Ginger Cove:
“The best thing about the organized trips are that it really makes you put yourself out there. I’ve lived in this area my whole life and never would think to go to The Kennedy Center. The drive, the traffic, the parking… With Ginger Cove, all the planning is done for you. All I have to do is get on the bus. I cannot say enough good things about Ginger Cove.”

“The younger you are when you move in, the better able you are to pamper yourself and be able to participate in anything you want to do. We wanted to enjoy all of the activities - such as bridge, shuffleboard, bocce ball, billiards, and miniature golf - and be fit enough to do it.”
