Resident Calls Life at Meadowood “a Wraparound Hug.”

Today, we’re talking with Janet Kovacs, a Meadowood resident of 3½ years. Janet is helping organize “The Residents of Meadowood,” the third session of our Smart Planning series.

31 Years and Growing

This month, Meadowood turns 31 years old, however the inspiration for this unique community happened over 37 years ago. A community of neighbors, set on a large, sprawling campus enjoying each other’s company and thriving in a collegiate atmosphere.

Bill and Sylvia Strasburg, the founders of Meadowood Senior Living, took great care when developing Meadowood. Bill wanted to create […]
