Turning Fifteen in Style.
I’ve been a Springs employee since the very first day we opened for business — exactly fifteen years ago this month. It seems like yesterday.
In the decade-and-a-half since I first interviewed with Hunter Howard, Sr., I’ve been committed to building his dream. His vision became my vision and the vision of his son Hunter Howard, Jr. The Simpsonville community, Springs employees and family members all embraced the vision of providing the best in senior care for residents—so much so that many of our employees have been part of The Springs family for a decade or more. The Springs is more than just another senior living community. It’s our home.
And the dream continues to evolve as The Springs grows to meet the demands of the growing Simpsonville community. Last week, we cut the ribbon on our ready-for-business Poinsettia expansion. This new wing — as well as the addition of a media room, rehabilitation suite, library and coffee café — is part of improvements being made to accommodate the changing desires of our residents and prospective residents.
The ribbon cutting and anniversary party was a blast! The Springs family hosted members of our local advisory board, local community leaders, family members, and members of CaraVita Home Care (our Atlanta partners) to celebrate both our history and our future. As Mayor Janice Curtis helped us cut the ribbons to open our new addition, we also honored long-time staff members and their service to the residents and families in our care.
Our new community features allow The Springs to provide senior living options ranging from independent living cottages to assisted living and a memory care neighborhood featuring our old- fashioned commitment to compassion and care.
Thanks for your part in fifteen great years!
Executive Director, The Springs at Simpsonville
