Meet Peggy Jett

This Month's Spotlighted Resident

Peggy Jett is practical by nature. “As a retired nurse, I understand how important it is to find the proper care for yourself at this stage of life,” said Peggy. “I had been on my own for almost 50 years, so I understood the value of being practical. The combination of seeking the proper care as well as the enjoyment of an interesting life led me to start my own search for a senior living community that would be right for me. I had a few health issues crop up over the last five years, and while I have come through them fine, it was clear to me that I needed to listen to my body and find a living situation with more support in place. Researching many places in Connecticut, I ultimately chose Pomperaug Woods. To quote a Heritage Village friend, ‘No one has ever said they regretted moving to Pomperaug Woods,’ and that captures my feelings perfectly. Living here is just the right choice for me.”

What stood out to Peggy about Pomperaug Woods when she was researching senior living communities? “Well, first and foremost, Pomperaug Woods felt like home,” said Peggy. “A lot of other communities felt very ‘institutional.’ A few were high rises that felt like a hospital. I valued that this community was a non-profit. It was very important to me to know that all of the money is reinvested right back into the community. Of course, the fact that Pomperaug Woods had all the different levels of care right here is very important. But it’s the little things like the wonderful, varied programming they have here. There is more to do than you could ever squeeze into a day. And that’s the beauty of Pomperaug Woods. You have the choice to do whatever you want, and it’s all here waiting for you. You create the balance in your life that works for you.”

Peggy works at creating that balance for herself. “I’m a morning person, so I try to schedule an early fitness class 2-3 times a week,” said Peggy. “Day trips to museums and exhibits plus occasional Met Opera telecasts are so refreshing. The Resident Council and the Library Committee keep me connected and challenged. I help run the book club, and I attend the entertainment here like concerts and author talks. It’s a good life.”

Peggy’s last piece of advice is exactly what you would expect — practical. “Anyone who is moving to Pomperaug Woods is offered a $5,000 incentive to utilize a downsizing service,” said Peggy. “Best decision I ever made. I unexpectedly had to go to the hospital the week before my move, and they took care of everything. They packed up my home, moved everything, and unpacked all my belongings. When I arrived, my closets were arranged, the plants were watered, and the refrigerator was stocked. It was this wonderful feeling of being completely cared for by total strangers.

That’s Pomperaug Woods — always taking care of you before you even know you need it.”

We’re so glad to have you, Peggy. We plan on being here to care for our residents for many years to come!
