Getting older comes with its share of challenges and concerns, not the least of which is living on your own as health or mobility issues become more difficult or the task of taking care of a home on your own becomes too great. Regardless, the desire to live life to its fullest and not feel as though you’ve lost your independence or vitality is shared by everyone of all ages; and in the golden years of life, it’s certainly something that you should still have to look forward to. After all, you’ve earned it—you’ve raised a family, you’ve contributed to your community, and you’ve spent countless years working to build yourself up financially. Now should be a time to enjoy all that you’ve invested in the world, and The Villages at the River Club is designed to do just that.
Officially opened to residents in November 2018, The Villages is a luxury style retirement community that strives to offer something unique to Clarksville and the surrounding areas, and it takes simply a tour of the spectacular grounds to know they’ve accomplished just that. “We offer an all-inclusive, maintenance-free and worry-free lifestyle for all of our residents,” says Meagan Smith, Executive Director of The Villages at the River Club. “We’re not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ type of community, which truly separates us from all of the other communities people have come to know, and some of the reasons for that is the resort-style living we offer our residents and the location we have, positioned on a golf course with breathtaking views and adaptability,” Smith goes on. “We want to inspire a sense of community and upscale living. It’s beautiful here, and being surrounded by beauty in a place where people are happy to live is good for everyone’s health—no matter their age.”
Keeping their residents happy and healthy isn’t simply dependent on offering luxurious aesthetics and great amenities, however. It’s also dependent on having a staff that is passionate about the work that they do. “Like all of the staff here, my passion is people, and all of us truly listen to what our residents want and need and help facilitate that,” Smith explains. “I believe that people can see and feel our desire to give them the very best life possible and how much we love being with them. They can see that all of the staff at The Villages is ready to make the community the very best that it can be. We have fun and genuinely enjoy what we do, which shines through.”
Offering 76 suites as well as a number of individual cottages planned to break ground that will have two-car garages, The Village also has an assisted living community and a separate memory care community within the community to provide care for those residents who need more regular attention and assistance. Clearly, this is one community designed to make the golden years truly golden—and they’ve got the perfect view to make them shine bright.
The Villages at the River Club is located at 1176 Warfield Boulevard, Clarksville, Tennessee 37043. For more information, call (931) 552-7455 or visit www.villagesattheriverclub.com.
