A Beautiful Place, A Beautiful Life!

At Atlantic Shores, peaceful surroundings bring peace of mind! As Atlantic Shores resident Mary T. shared….

“For me, Atlantic Shores is beautiful because it eases my mind from concerns that would elsewhere be worried. I feel curious sometimes about who’s knocking at my door, but I’m never uneasy or afraid; my car is safe in the parking lot; I can drive home late at night, park, walk in with a load of shopping bags, and feel entirely safe.


When the inevitable plumbing or electrical problems crop up, I call and help arrives in dependable timing, at a modest, clearly scheduled cost. I am completely at ease with those who come to provide help. And, of course, it’s beautiful not to worry during driving rains and winds about having to repair the roof, not to give a thought to painting or other maintenance. Peace of mind is a breath-giving beauty.


With my mind freed from concerns of safety, maintenance, and such matters which can rapidly erode personal energy, I’m able to enjoy another kind of beauty – –  the beauty of freely asking, ‘What do I really want to do?; It’s no longer, ‘Oh, I wish I had time to…,’ it’s, ‘Now I can!’ At this stage of my life that is truly beautiful. Sure, I have some of the predictable limitations that come after seven or more decades of doing about, but to have the door held open for using my energy for what is most interesting to me is splendid!


Furthermore, beauty is not just about the beholder, no matter what she says. A big part of what makes Atlantic Shores beautiful is that it is such a remarkable community – – staff and residents of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, skills, inhaling and exhaling in rhythms that pulse with caring and support. A grace and fondness in our life together add vivid depth to the beauty of this place. I’m glad, for this chapter of my life, to be living in the most beautiful of all the places I can think of.”

Worry less, live more at Atlantic Shores!
