“My wife and I love Ardenwoods because we’re served by friendly people and friendly residents. It’s a wonderful environment for both of us.”
“I feel very comfortable and at home here at Ardenwoods. I’m really good friends with the staff and residents. I can’t imagine anything better.”
“Our advice for anyone interested in moving to Ardenwoods is: Don’t Wait! We made Ardenwoods our home in 2004 and we have really enjoyed living here. Our decision gave us the opportunity to continue our travels around the world without having to worry about day-to-day maintenance of our home.”

“Ardenwoods is a place you go to live life to the fullest. My greatest joy is when my mother tells me she cannot see me because she is too busy having fun at Ardenwoods. The community is small and becomes like a cherished family to the residents. The staff are caring, responsive and just plain good people who try to make sure the residents have life free from concerns. Ardenwoods is the only place we considered when looking at Independent Living properties and we could not have made a better choice for our family.”
Michele Stahl, Daughter of Former Resident Phyllis Stas
“Oh my goodness! What an absolute blessing Ardenwoods is, not only for my Mom, but also for our whole family. Mom went from living alone in my childhood home in upstate NY, watching her friends dwindle away to a whole new life in NC. She has an amazing, loving, and caring quality of life here and the community of Ardenwoods staff and residents all watch out for each other. They have become family to her and also to myself. Her heart is full of joy when she participates in Ardenwoods events and activities and has added years to her life. And as her daughter, experiencing this quality time with her and her friends is more than I would have dreamed of at this stage in our life together. A huge heartfelt thank you to Ardenwoods for helping to make my heart and hers one!”
Joanne Jones, Daughter of Resident Anna Echter
“Having visited family members in their retirement homes, it is inevitable that I would compare their settings with Ardenwoods. I find that Ardenwoods can provide us with a unique, supportive, warm community where deep friendships can be formed. When I reluctantly gave up my car, I was concerned about transportation for shopping needs. The decision was a good one, as the available trips are more than adequate. Each month, when I see the listing of activities available to the residents, I am amazed. It is impossible not to use superlatives in describing Kari and Edna’s devotion to enriching our lives at Ardenwoods.”
