Friendships & Foundations Winter Virtual Event Series

During the Friendships & Foundations winter virtual event series, participants learned valuable strategies for moving and settling into their new homes at The Commons—all capped off with a virtual mixology class!

The sessions offered practical advice for moving to a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), and provided insights on the resources available to prospective residents prior to move in. Regardless if you were able to attend the series or not, below we share recordings that will highlight each of the events.
