A Message from Noble Horizons Administrator Bill Pond
2020 was certainly a very challenging year and yet I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be. Every day at Noble Horizons gives me the opportunity to make a positive difference in somebody’s life. And you can do the same!
The pandemic has dramatically changed our lives, but we have persevered. Noble Horizons has remained COVID-free and Medicare has honored us with their highest 5-star rating, A RARE DISTINCTION WE HAVE EARNED OVER SEVERAL CONSECUTIVE QUARTERS. No other similar community in Litchfield County has been so recognized and we are deeply proud.
Though COVID is not on the Noble campus, its impact on our residents, staff, operations, and budget is felt daily. Keeping COVID out and every resident safe has required substantial resources and I am asking for your help in this all-important mission while we continue to prepare for a future worthy of our 5-stars.
Your gift will help us continue the vital renovations to memory care, provide for essential upgrades to the Community Room, and fund the Recreation Department’s commitment to offer every resident diverse and fulfilling opportunities to lead active, creative lives within the ever-shifting COVID safety protocols.
During these deeply challenging times of economic uncertainty, will you please show your support of seniors at Noble with an especially generous gift this year?
We are honored by the trust that you place in us and your commitment to ensuring that 5-star care continues to define life at Noble Horizons. We will not let our residents down and I know you won’t either. On behalf of all who live and work at Noble Horizons, I thank you for your generosity and wish you the peace and joy of the season.
