Phyllis is a retired teacher who has lived at Fairing Way since its opening three years ago. She lived in be a slave to her house as she grew older. She lived in Randolph for many years but didn’t want to be a slave to her house as she grew older. So, she reserved an apartment at Fairing Way just after construction began, “right-sized” her lifestyle, sold her house and moved to Fairing Way.
“It’s great! I can travel whenever I want and not worry about the lawn or the snowy driveway. And the therapy I received at Dwyer Home after my surgery this summer was top notch.”
Phyllis was one of the first residents to utilize Fairing Way’s on-site Healing and Rehabilitation Center for physical therapy on an outpatient basis after she returned home. “It couldn’t have been more convenient. I think I recovered faster and better because therapy was so easy. I really had no worries.”
Phyllis is back to her routine, participating in exercise classes, traveling with friends and volunteering. “I’ve also really enjoyed being involved in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UMass Boston. It’s so easy to get there with the train so close by,” she notes.
“I love my life at Fairing Way. My neighbors here have become my extended family, and I still have plenty of opportunities to interact with young people and families around the neighborhood. It's great!"
The completion of Fairing Way’s final phase also represents the completion of Union Point’s first neighborhood, Southfield Highlands. Southfield Highlands’ residents enjoy Union Point’s 843 acres of open space and wildlife — perfect for hiking, biking and even birdwatching. In fact, Fairing Way residents were instrumental in helping the Wildlands Trust staff build and install bird boxes throughout the trails at Union Point this past spring. A Neighborhood Association regularly hosts social events in the community park. Residents recently enjoyed a discussion on the history of the Weymouth Air Base held at Fairing Way and they’re formulating their questions for an upcoming Candidates’ Night featuring candidates running in this fall’s Weymouth town elections!
Dr. Gary Hylander’s monthly lectures are one of Fairing Way’s most popular offerings. “I wish I had known him in high school,” Fairing Way resident Pat Flynn says of Gary. “I lived a whole lifetime not knowing how much I love history!”
Gary earned his PhD at Boston College and has been a professor of history at Framingham State University and Stonehill College, as well as a public affairs commentator on local cable news and radio. He knows American history inside and out, has an amazing recall of details and facts and is as much fun to watch as he is to hear.
“He’s energetic, not dry at all, and makes learning about history fun and interesting,” she adds. Gary is planning a six-week offering for Fairing Way residents on Friday mornings beginning in February. “Fords, Flappers and Fitzgerald” will explore the exciting 1920s.
Participation is limited. Call Fairing Way at 781-660-5000 to join this thought-provoking history adventure.
If you’re planning on selling your house in the next five years, experts say now is the time to do so. as travel, dining out, theater, learning new interests and hobbies, and spending time with family and friends. No more headaches about failing appliances, a leaky roof, faulty plumbing or shoveling snow. All of these things are covered under one low monthly fee. And here’s the best part: Fairing Way offers the highest return of any retirement community on the South Shore. Simply put, it is the safest and best home equity plan a retirement community can offer.
According to US News & World Report, “homeowners looking to sell should consider 2019 a prime opportunity to cash in” on their real estate investment. Two of the main reasons that it is a good time to sell in 2019 are that:
1. Interest rates are still low
2. New buyers are still entering the market
This isn’t expected to be the case over the next five years, so the quicker sell is likely to be the most profitable. And if you’re considering making the transition to a retirement community like Fairing Way, you can use the equity from your home to finance the community’s buy-in fee.
