Resident Spotlight: Carol Fiske

Carol thought she wasn’t ready for senior living, but one visit to New Pond Village changed her mind.

When Carol Fiske saw the first signs of construction at New Pond Village’s groundbreaking, she knew she wanted to live there.

At the time, Carol was a realtor in Norwood and was familiar with the market and local senior communities, so she knew New Pond Village was special; she just thought it was too early to move to a continuing care retirement community.

However, she kept an eye on New Pond Village—she saw friends’ mothers and fathers move in and watched the community grow. In the back of her mind, she was thinking about her plan.

In 2017, she stopped by and was shown an apartment home. “Looking around, I said, ‘I could live here. This is so nice,’” she recalls. That day, she was only interested in a price sheet. However, she decided to move to New Pond Village on the spot, and within three months, she was a new resident.

Carol realized, “I was probably ready to leave my house.” Going up and down stairs and keeping up with home maintenance was becoming too much. It was time, she says, for the “next thing.”

Carol is very glad she moved to New Pond Village when she did. “I would encourage anyone to come here,” she says.
