New year, new lifestyle Why retired educator Pat Wolfe chose to retire at The Meadows of Napa Valley. PAT WOLFE used to live in a beautiful three-story Victorian home. It had an original roof, fence, and staircase but needed constant maintenance, leaving Pat wishing for a lifestyle that required less upkeep. But as a retired educator specializing in brain health, Pat wasn’t interested in moving just anywhere. She wanted somewhere with community, activities, and opportunities for physical and mental stimulation, as well as a place she wouldn’t have to leave if her needs changed. Only one place in the area had everything she was looking for—The Meadows of Napa Valley. “I just went through the whole list of things to keep your brain healthy and said, ‘They’re all here.’” As the only Life Plan Community in Napa, Pat said moving to The Meadows was an easy decision, as it was the only community to offer all four levels of care right on campus. Thanks to her move, Pat also no longer has to worry about painting the fence, or taking repeated trips up and down the stairs. Instead, she enjoys weekly housekeeping, and more time for the things she loves. “You’re free to do the things you want to do, and the stress of owning a home is gone,” said Pat. Her decision couldn’t have come at a better time. ‘Vela,’ a new fine dining venue at The Meadows As a response to the wish list of today’s retirees, The Meadows is undergoing an extensive redesign to create a retirement paradise that is bigger, better, and more modern than ever before. Today, construction is nearing completion on a re-envisioning of The Meadows’ entire campus, including a beautiful new courtyard; renovated common spaces; a new wing of contemporary, spacious apartments; two unique dining venues; and an on-site vineyard. Pat particularly enjoys her access to The Meadows’ new 6,000-square-foot Fitness and Aquatic Center, which includes state-of-the-art exercise equipment and a large indoor pool. “The fitness center here is fabulous,” said Pat. “I don’t have to drive to a gym, I don’t have to pay for a gym. It’s almost like you have a personal trainer, because there’s always someone that you can talk to and ask about what you should be doing on the machines.” She’s also happy she chose to make the move when she did—especially in light of those who wait too long to move, including her own mother. Pat Wolfe, resident at The Meadows of Napa Valley “You’re free to do the things you want to do, and the stress of owning a home is gone.” —Pat Wolfe “People stay in their own homes too long. Then they’re frail, they can’t move, they don’t want to move, [and] they get set in their ways,” said Pat. “I thought, ‘I want to make this decisions while it’s still my decision. I want to go where I want to go.’” Living at The Meadows, Pat says she feels younger, not older. And as she drives past her old house, she loves that her days are now spent picking up her grandkids, joining discussion groups, and swimming in the pool—not fixing an old roof.
