I watched the facility being built. Told my family that is where I want to live when my home got too large for me to take care of, or if I no longer wanted to live alone. Several of my friends lived here and I heard really good things about it. So I moved here and like it very much.

Several years ago my husband and I toured Creekside at Elfindale; we thought it was the prettiest little neighborhood. We decided that day, that we were going to move to a cottage, but we had to sell our home first. After our home sold, there were no available cottages so, we moved to another home in the Springfield area. When my husband passed away unexpectedly my children didn't want me living by myself. We started looking at retirement communities, and not one of them was what I was looking for, I said to my daughters I want to go look at Creekside. I toured Creekside for a second time, at the time they were remodeling the apartments, and it was everything I was looking for, right down to a very large tree right outside my balcony.

I feel very safe living here at Creekside; everyone is so friendly, helpful and always has a smile for me. I love my apartment and am happy to be here!
Della H.
Our home, our community, our decision, we looked at other retirement communities, but none appealed to us like the Cottages at Creekside at Elfindale. We enjoy the wonderful walking paths and watching the wild life, it's almost like living in the country. Every team member is so pleasing and respectful to us they exceed any expectation we have. We can't imagine it being any better than this.

The staff is always willing to help or provide service. If there is an emergency, the response is quick and efficient as a rule; the living areas are quiet and calm, very much like an elegant hotel.

Several years ago my husband and I toured Creekside at Elfindale; we thought it was the prettiest little neighborhood. We decided that day, that we were going to move to a cottage, but we had to sell our home first. After our home sold, there were no available cottages so, we moved to another home in the Springfield area. When my husband passed away unexpectedly my children didn't want me living by myself. We started looking at retirement communities, and not one of them was what I was looking for, I said to my daughters I want to go look at Creekside. I toured Creekside for a second time, at the time they were remodeling the apartments, and it was everything I was looking for, right down to a very large tree right outside my balcony.

I feel very safe living here at Creekside; everyone is so friendly, helpful and always has a smile for me. I love my apartment and am happy to be here!

Our home, our community, our decision, we looked at other retirement communities, but none appealed to us like the Cottages at Creekside at Elfindale. We enjoy the wonderful walking paths and watching the wild life, it's almost like living in the country. Every team member is so pleasing and respectful to us they exceed any expectation we have. We can't imagine it being any better than this.
