1000th Resident

The Camps Family

Drumroll please … now introducing … from the great state of Michigan … Magnolia Green’s 1,000th homeowner, the beautiful Camps family!

We all have our own story of what makes a house a home and a neighborhood a community, so let’s check in with the Camps to learn why they chose Magnolia Green and how they’ve settled in since moving in this Summer.

--

Magnolia Green: What was your first reaction after visiting Magnolia Green?

Camps Family: The homes were beautiful, but most importantly the community seemed to have a wonderful sense of family.

Magnolia Green: Did any of the physical offerings appeal to you?

Camps Family: The amazing amenities. From the golf course to the beautiful aquatic center and even the connectivity the sidewalks offered are great for us and the kids, too!

Magnolia Green: Have you had the chance to meet your neighbors?

Camps Family: Yes! We’ve met so many families already and they’ve all been very welcoming.

--

To the Camps family and to each and every one of you, thank you for making Magnolia Green your home.

We love being a part of your family.

5th Annual River City Golf Classic

River City Golf Classic

Washington Redskins Head Coach, Jay Gruden, may have already faced his toughest opponent this year and the NFL season hasn’t even started yet.

Enter: The 620-yard par-5 10th hole at Magnolia Green Golf Club featuring that pesky bunker right smack in the middle of the fairway.

Gruden golfing

On July 24, Coach Gruden was joined by Redskins’ President Bruce Allen, Super Bowl Champion and MVP Doug Williams, and voice of the team, Larry Michael, as they teed it up with members of the greater Richmond community in the River City Classic. A few of our own also joined, including the captain of our ship, Tom Page.

Tom’s group

The charitable tournament, which benefits the Friends of Bon Secour Training Center, is in its fifth year. We were honored to host it for the first time on our 18-hole Nicklaus-designed championship course.

For a recap of the event and to see some of its greatest “hits” check out this video.

A Record-Breaking Year!

We enjoyed a banner year in 2017 with a record 204 home sales, an increase of 18 percent from 2016 where we sold a then-unmatched 173 homes.

Last year, we also welcomed two massive resort-style amenities totaling $10.5 million in investment. The 10-acre aquatic center features four swimming pools – a Junior Olympic-sized competition pool, a children’s splash pool, an activity pool and a lounge pool. The 15,000-square-foot Craftsman-style golf clubhouse is open to the public and includes a golf pro shop, The Grille at Magnolia Green (full-service restaurant and bar) and private event space for weddings and ceremonies.

Even More to Come!

In 2018, we will introduce several new active-lifestyle amenities and welcome two new neighborhoods.

Led by Magnolia Green Golf Club’s award-winning Director of Instruction, Leighann Albaugh, our brand-new golf instruction facility is set to open in February and will be equipped with golf simulators for year-round use. The 1,600-square-foot facility will include a putting green equipped with a SAM Puttlab, four hitting stations, a FlightScope X3 Launch Monitor and a full-service club repair lab equipped with loft and lie machines for irons and putters. It will offer personalized instruction and host camps, classes and birthday parties.

In addition to the golf instruction facility, we’ll be opening a tennis center amenity with eight lighted courts, two pickleball courts, a pro shop and a picnic pavilion. A clubhouse for our age-targeted neighborhoods, Charleston Club and Charleston Village, will also be joining Magnolia Green. The Charleston Club will include a pool and bocce ball courts.

Lastly, coming in the spring, Magnolia Green will add Aston Oaks and Valhalla to its 13 neighborhoods. Aston Oaks will include single family homes from builders HHHunt and CraftMaster and is set to open in April. Valhalla, expected to open in June, will feature garage townhomes from HHHunt.

Top 3 ways retirement communities can support healthy aging

For many, retirement is hoped to be a time of enjoyment and relaxation, and a respite from our otherwise crazy lives. One important part of finding the perfect retirement lifestyle is planning to age healthily.

In 2016, the 75 years and older age group in the United States reportedly spent more time participating in sports and relaxing than other age groups, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.

But how does one keep up this activity and health as they age? How does someone plan to age in such a way as to continue doing the things they love? This is one area where a good, high-quality retirement community can be helpful.

Supporting active lifestyles

As people age, their homes often become harder for them to excel in. Things that used to be simple, such as shoveling the walk or driveway and driving a car in bad weather, develop into an obstacle for them. Joining a retirement community can take away many of these obstacles, giving the residents more time and ability to stay active.

“When you move into a community you never have to worry about getting in your car and driving somewhere and motivating yourself to go do that,” says Kelly Ornberg, director of sales and marketing for Summit at Magnolia Green, a retirement community dedicated to wellness and joyful lifestyles.

Being able to live in a community with similarly aged neighbors, where activities are located on campus can help residents stay active and enjoy their retirement years. These communities are there to help residents find success, explains Ornberg.

Where you live meets how you live
Matthew Thomas

When a retirement community is supportive of healthy lifestyles, it should be doing more than just supporting physical activities. Ideally, a community would also be able to help residents strengthen their minds, work through traumatic experiences such as loss of a loved one and better themselves in general.

“Staying active is not just about moving your body, it’s about stimulating your brain, your heart, your mind and your soul,” says Ornberg.

Keeping residents engaged

“More than one-fourth (27 percent) of women ages 65 to 74 lived alone in 2014, and this share jumps to 42 percent among women ages 75 to 84, and to 56 percent among women ages 85 and older,” according to the Population Reference Bureau.

Unfortunately, solitary living has many disadvantages. “The No. 1 reason we see people struggle when they get older is that they’re isolated,” says Ornberg. She describes that being around people in the same stage of life and not being socially isolated is helpful and healthy.

Retirement communities give residents the opportunity to have their personal time when wanted, while also having the ability to socialize and engage in activities when they wish. Ornberg gives the example in a community she works with, that a committee of residents is actually deciding what activities to offer. In other words, the residents are choosing what they want to be engaged in and not what the staff has decided.

Whether that activity is golfing with buddies or simply basking in the sun with a good book, it is up to the resident.

Sustaining health

“We need to make sure that folks have the access and the opportunity to remain free of disease and disability,” describes Ornberg. This includes having the access and ample time needed with doctors, healthy foods available and opportunities to stay active.

Some communities have in-house medical staff, while others have close access to a medical team off-site. Whether a retirement community has doctors on campus or it partners with a clinic where it can easily take residents, having the ability to meet the medical needs of the retirees is a sign of a good community.

“If (a community doesn’t) have a department that’s dedicated to the health and wellness of the residents it’s probably not going to be as robust at that place as it would be at another community that has those positions in place,” says Ornberg. “In doing research it’s important to know that your community has access to great health care.”

Finding a retirement community that is dedicated to helping its residents age healthily can make all the difference in whether someone thrives in their later years.
