reviewsBernie Wiersum:
“As you grow older, you need help, that’s all”

Bernie Wiersum is a lifelong learner. “I was born with a tremendous curiosity,” he says, and today, at 86, he continues to stoke that curiosity from his apartment at Saratoga Grove. Educational DVDs, online courses, and books on a range of topics fill his apartment and his mind.

So his decision to move to Saratoga Grove was a logical one. “As you grow older, you need help, that’s all,” he says matter-of-factly. “Living here, you can get a lot of help but still have an enjoyable retirement.” Bernie participates in the Walking Club to get the physical exercise he needs, and a variety of activities and outings provide the social opportunities he loves, while his computer, books, and DVDs keep his brain fit.

“This is the place to be,” he says. “It’s everything you need for a good life at a good cost.”
