I knew I would be coming to Westminster Oaks when I retired. My sister lived at Westminster Shores in St. Petersburg and I would often visit her. I wanted to be in a nice community here in Tallahassee. Upon my first visit, everybody was friendly, the place was clean, and there were many opportunities to do things. The staff is wonderful, they look after us like we're family. My children and I often visit each other and go on mission trips to Africa. I enjoy cultivating my rose garden and spending time with my cat. I appreciate my privacy, spacious home and wonderful neighbors. I love living here.

Westminster Oaks has discovered a winning formula and there's much to love about this community. My late wife and I came here thirteen years ago and this move eliminated the worry and concern of our family. We were surprised to find so many people with uncommon energy and reasonable health even into their nineties--retired airline pilots, engineers, clergy, professors, librarians, teachers, business and professional leaders, coaches, and public servants. The 24-hour security and emergency call systems encourage worry-free living here. The staff is extraordinary. They respect our independence and promote social interaction, which may be more important than exercise. It's noteworthy how prompt, efficient and courteous maintenance is in responding to difficulties that arise. Of our affiliations with the local universities, I was happy to be involved in the establishment of our FSU partnership four years ago. King Solomon said, "the hoary head is a crown of glory," and we have a lot of crowns on this campus, people who have decided to be happy and make this a pleasant environment.

Mary and I have been here almost seven years and we've always known it was the best choice for us. Westminster Oaks has exceeded our expectations, even they were high from the time we heard about the place. Our friends live here, including those from Florida State University, local and state government and my wife's best friend. We feel at home. Our home was nearly built when we moved in and we had the opportunity to choose the furnishings, fireplace and screened-in porch we wanted. This community encourages activities with the fitness center, educational opportunities in the Maguire Center, and recreational events. We truly appreciate the level of kindness and responsibility of the Westminster Oaks management in accommodating our needs on an ongoing basis. Truthfully, I can't think of one complaint about Westminster. These are good people out here. They really are!

I've been in Tallahassee since 1964 with my family. After my wife passed in 2001, I did not want to be in that house alone. I signed up with another company initially, but after the recession hit, they weren't able to come up with the money for construction. That was disappointing, but I knew that Westminster Oaks was the only place in town I would consider coming to. As a World War II veteran and retired professor of Florida State University after 31 years, I was pleased to see so many friends here. At 91, I'm somebody who needs to be active and there are numerous activities here. I'm involved in all kinds of things. I'm on the resident council, table tennis team, and I develop and maintain the website for the military veterans group. I routinely workout in the fitness center and I'm careful about my diet. I cook my own meals or go to the restaurant. The Westminster Oaks organization is run exceptionally well. I love my home on Diplomacy Circle. Both my children are very pleased with this community. When they visit me I can accommodate them without putting them in a hotel.

I have been here more than 4 years. This community balances my need for privacy and engagement. I love the quietness of my apartment and the excitement of doing things as varied as working with sound equipment in the Maguire Center and dealing with emergency preparedness for hurricanes and other crisis situations. I think this is a tremendous place.
