On New Year’s Day, 2016, our lives changed by moving to Primrose after spending almost 61 years of our marriage in Holdrege, NE.  Our daughter and son thought we would like living closer to them, enjoying our grandchildren more often, and protecting ourselves against any future physical needs.

They had our names on the Primrose waiting list for quite some time due to an injury which took a long time to rehab. Since the injury, we had several opportunities to move but didn’t think we were ready.  Recently, we were called and informed of an apartment available and we made a quick decision to have a look.

After a tour of Primrose, we immediately fell in love with what we saw and heard.  We are so grateful for the move.  After two months here, we have met many new friends, both men & women, and the staff members are the best!  Everyone has made us feel so welcome.  The amenities are great and too numerous to mention.  The activities can keep one busy all day with games, entertainment, bus trips, valet service and more!  In summary, Primrose Retirement Community in Grand Island, NE, is indeed the golden place to enjoy staying young!
