Exeter, NH — It has been 20 years since the vision of a handful of area residents became the reality that is RiverWoods Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).
The vision was to provide a dignified way for people to retire, before they became inactive, and to provide continuing care through the end of their lives without burgeoning costs as their needs enhanced.
"There was a need locally, and that need was based on providing people a better way to be 75," RiverWoods Executive Director Justine Vogel said.
