102 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.16 Special Advertising Section forestspringshc.com Having been a widow for 12 years, Elaine Whelan says, "I had decided I'd lived alone in a patio home too long. I'm a really social person, and I wanted to be where there were people. I had neighbors, but I was alone." Wanting a place where older adults lived independently, Elaine found Miralea Active Lifestyle Community, which opened three and a half years ago on the Masonic Homes' Louisville Campus. She moved to Miralea two weeks after it opened and has been thrilled with her decision ever since. Miralea's popularity means it has had a growing waiting list, but for those seeking the independence, positive energy, and peace of mind it offers, the wait is over. Masonic Homes is constructing a sister facility whose amenities and services will mirror those of Miralea — The Meadow Active Lifestyle Community. The Meadow will offer one- and two- bedroom apartments with amenities such as full-service and casual dining, a fitness center, aquatic center, creative arts studio, library, living room, media room, movie theater, beauty salon and a wide range of lifestyles programming. The Meadow's services will include a flexible dining plan, interior and exterior maintenance, all utilities, housekeeping, transportation, concierge, pet services, around-the-clock security and garage parking. Residents like Elaine get the extra peace of mind of Life Care benefits, having unlimited priority access to a full continuum of on- campus health care services and assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing care in the future, should they need it. For now, the numerous activities and compatible community mean Elaine can do as much or as little as she wants and is never lonely. When she gets the urge to travel as she loves to do, she simply locks her door and goes. As she told her children, "I can be freer here than I've ever been in a long time." Masonic Homes of Kentucky has three active lifestyle communities on its Louisville Campus: The Meadow, Miralea and The Village.
