Who would’ve guessed that the whole world could’ve changed so quickly?
It seems like only a couple weeks ago, everything was normal and routine.
Well, where do we go from here? If you’re a senior and have been considering a move, you might be wondering if that’s the best idea anymore.
With the uncertainty in the economy, and the risks associated with this new virus, its hard to predict what comes next.
Whatever happens though, keep smiling. The next month is going to be very uncertain. But after that, we should start seeing some light at the end of this crazy tunnel.
Important Things To Remember
This isn’t the end of the world, unless it is…
We’re no stranger to shocks. We’ve experienced them before. In every case, we’ve come together as a country and pulled through them.
9/11 is a perfect example of when the whole country stopped in shock at what was then, an unprecedented attack on the United States.
If you look back, you’ll remember times when things looked pretty bleak for our country. Eventually, things got better.
This current upset will get better too. For those who are better able to whether this storm, we can look to the future as a bright spot. We can take comfort knowing that the world will still press forward. We can keep an eye out for those whom we can help, and we can make the best of a bad situation.
I have two such examples to relate:
As I was talking with our friendly sales staff this week, one of them mentioned how in their 55+ community, they had a couple of seniors who were at a higher risk for complications if they got sick. So they have isolated themselves in their homes.
Neighbors have rallied around them and dropped off groceries and other goods at their doorstep so that they don’t have to get out and be exposed to what might otherwise be a life-threatening disease for them.
This is what our communities are all about. Friendships and genuinely caring for each other.
Another example of kindness came from a story one of our employees related. Salt Lake City was shutting down in-house dining at their restaurants. This employee got together with a good friend to enjoyed one last meal out before the closures took effect.
When they finished with their meal, knowing that the waitress was going to lose her job that night, they made sure to leave an extra large trip, multiple times the cost of their meal.
There’s nothing we can individually do to stop the hardships that come from today’s circumstances, but there’s plenty we can do to make the best of a bad situation.
The Sun always comes up tomorrow, so we can all live the best that we can today, and be as positive as we can today. Because if for some reason the Sun didn’t show up tomorrow, no amount of pessimism today would make a lick of difference.
We’re doing our part.
If you’re a little shy about coming out and house hunting at this time, we completely understand your hesitancy. However, if you are still interested in moving forward, we want you to know that we are still in business.
Whatever happens in the economy, we’re going to do our best to keep as many of our people employed, and to keep you safe.
After every visitor stops by our sales office, our sales staff has been disinfecting all of the surfaces that the potential customer came in contact with, so you can feel comfortable coming into a clean sales environment.
We want to keep you safe, and keep you comfortable, whether you’re as healthy as a millennial, or whether you’re at a higher risk from this virus.
Good luck, and don’t forget to smile!
