What made you decide to move to Lantern Hill? 

Our daughter, who lives in Chatham, found Lantern Hill and has friends here. After coming and meeting with Sales Associate Carlos Aguilera and the Lantern Hill staff, we made a quick decision to move here. We wanted to be closer to our family in New Jersey and liked that Lantern Hill’s continuing care neighborhood is on campus.

What are you looking forward to now that you are living at Lantern Hill? We are looking forward to becoming part of the community, meeting new lifelong friends, and enjoying all the activities.
