Older Americans are on the move. According to the 2019 U.S. Census, North Carolina ranked third for people over age 60 to move, just behind Florida and Arizona. And in North Carolina, Winston-Salem offers many of the things retirees are looking for: top-notch medical facilities, arts and entertainment, opportunities for continuing education, and retirement living options.

With the opening this month of Harmony at Brookberry Farm, Winston-Salem now offers a luxurious retirement community without the large buy-in fee. With 195 apartments in one building, Harmony offers independent living one- and two-bedroom apartments, assisted living, and secured living options, ranging from 839 to 1500 sq. feet of spacious living.

According to Emily Nelson, executive director of Harmony at Brookberry Farm, the number one thing residents tell her they’re looking for is socialization and life enrichment. And you will certainly find that at Harmony. Residents can enjoy a chef-inspired menu in the dining room, working out in the fitness center, movie nights in the on-site theatre, beauty and barber shop, library and computer lab, a pub and lounge, and comfortable common spaces just to sit and talk with neighbors. A calendar of activities will offer something new to educate, experience or explore every week. Transportation for such things as grocery shopping is also available. And pets are welcome!

Medical needs are also managed with an onsite physician, labs and physical therapy room. Residents also receive weekly housekeeping services, freeing up time for more fun things to do.

Each spacious apartment at Harmony features a full kitchen, walk-in shower in the bathroom, washer & dryer, and either a balcony or sunroom, and a walk-in closet off the bedroom.

Justin Harden, director of sales and marketing, said that he works often with the adult children of retirees who are helping their parents select a retirement community that offers safety and security, as well as with retirees who are looking for a home where they can feel a part of a community. There is a one-time fee and then a monthly rental fee, but no long-term leases required at Harmony. Month-to-month rent includes utilities except for phone, internet and cable, weekly housekeeping, and dining option. And with the three levels of care – independent, assisted, and secured assisted living – people can feel secure knowing they can remain there should their health needs change.

Harmony at Brookberry also believes in providing opportunities for their residents to support the community. Caroline Russell, licensed recreational therapist, already has plans for a Jazz and Juleps event this spring and a fall fundraiser to benefit local charities. With all the plans already in place, residents will not lack for something to do to keep them engaged and entertained. You can truly live life to the fullest at Harmony!

To see all that Harmony offers seniors looking for carefree living and social connections, call them to schedule a personal tour at 336-701-6584. Harmony at Brookberry Farm is located at 5416 Hundley Street, off Meadowlark Drive in Winston-Salem.
