Take Charge of Tomorrow at The Glenridge’s Northside Neighborhood

For Al and Phyllis Wilhelm, planning is paramount. As licensed CPAs, they’ve always understood the importance of financial preparedness – and the experience of caring for their own older parents taught them the importance of being proactive about healthcare, too.

That was one of the top reasons the couple chose to reserve their future home at The Glenridge’s brand-new Northside Neighborhood. With single-family homes located amid acres of lakes, wetlands, and upland preserve areas, Northside was envisioned as a new kind of community, ideal for active adults like the Wilhelms.

But in addition to all the luxury amenities and programs The Glenridge is known for – maintenance-free living, entertainment, culture, and lifelong learning – it also promised Al and Phyllis something even more important: peace of mind for the future. Here, members can rest assured that no matter what tomorrow has in store, they’ll have access to top-quality healthcare close to home.

“In caring for our parents, we learned that if you wait until something happens, you’re at the mercy of what’s available,” says Phyllis. “At The Glenridge, we know that everything is here, in case we ever need it – but we can maintain our independent lifestyle, too.”

Offering beautiful single-family residences, a big two-car garage for Al, and a lanai for Phyllis, the neighborhood checked every box on their list – and since moving into their new Club Home earlier this spring, the Wilhelms say it’s been everything they hoped for.

“Northside has exceeded our expectations, and we have loved it since the day we got here,” Phyllis says. “Every afternoon, we sit out on the lanai, look at the lake, and watch for the beautiful blue heron.”

With all the advantages of their own home – but none of the upkeep – Al and Phyllis are free to enjoy each day to the fullest. Whether they’re collecting wine and antique clocks …. swimming in the Fitness Center’s 75-ft. lap pool … or cooking new recipes in their spacious eat-in kitchen, they have more time to focus on the hobbies and interests they love.

“Northside is very friendly as its own little community … but we are very much integrated into the Glenridge ‘experience’ as a whole –  from lectures and concerts to the Fitness Center and the Thistle Stop,” says Al. “And when we want to travel, we can walk out the door, and not worry about anything – because everything is taken care of.”

The bottom line, they agree, is simple: “If you’re considering The Glenridge, don’t wait. This is fully independent living at its best.”
