Ms. Bonnie Chatman has been a resident of Pinewood Senior Village since November of 2014. She is pleased to share this about her community:
“I moved from Statesboro, Georgia. I was living in a farm area and I wanted to live in a city to be closer to the amenities. Pinewood is near everything whether it be shopping or grocery stores and there are a lot of things to do when the grandkids come to visit. They love visiting me and they think it it is a beautiful place. We sit out on my front porch and have lunch, it is nice.
My apartment is home to me because I like the way it is laid out and I like that I can decorate it. I love the high ceilings and black appliances and the galley kitchen is perfect for one person. I always loved windows and I like to look out and from my home. I can look out and I can see everything passing by. I also like the way that management goes about business out here because they are concerned about me and appreciate me.
Pinewood Village has all kinds of activities. Once a month we have a birthday gathering and we do lunches and potluck dinners. We recently had a garage sale and a really nice 4th of July cookout. Everyone chipped in and our families and grandkids came to visit. We also have a bible study. Our social committee plans 2-3 events a month for us, so you don’t have to worry about being lonely while living here.
I walk around Pinewood Village all of the time and try to get my 5 miles in every other day. I’m trying to take care of myself and eat right. I am a veteran and my doctors take care of me and ensure I’m in great heath. I was a flight attendant on the command post plane and that’s the plane that the president of the United States flies on now to go places. I have lived a full life and done some wonderful things and now I’m just enjoying my life out here while living in Pinewood.”
