Listen to the buzz from our excited new residents.
We appreciate that making a move to a senior living community is a major decision.
Here are just some of the folks who were once where you are—and now hope you will soon be where they are: Enjoying our new and unique culture of Creative Living!
“Why I enjoy living at The Covington? It’s the people! I enjoy the fine facilities, the many activities, and the fine food. But, what makes the Covington unique are the friendly, concerned, compassionate people that make up our community.”
“I’m single and perfectly able to live on my own. But, I wasn’t doing the things on my own that I love to do- symphony, musical theatre, plays, educational trips, and travel. Since I moved to the Covington a year ago that void has been wonderfully filled. In just the past month we’ve been to Pageant of the Masters, Phantom of the Opera, and watched a video concert under the stars. Next month visits to the Griffith Park observatory, San Diego zoo, Chapman art museum are on the calendar. We go out to interesting restaurants and dine in with fascinating people. I love it!”

“The minute I stepped in through the door, friendliness was apparent with smiling receptionist Sarah along with Ida, sales person. Adjacent to their station were the residents in The Cove, talking and laughing amongst one another. One could tell The Covington was thinking of the welfare of whomever resided there with the many variety of outings along with in house activities such as art/ceramic classes, a concentration of exercises classes, and the host of monthly Schumacher performances etc.
The grounds here are aesthetically landscaped which allows a comfortable distance of walking around through the Secret Garden and Margaret’s Pavillion.”

“WHY I CHOSE THE COVINGTON? Although I’ve lived here for 10 years, there are other residents who have been here since the Covington opened 15 years ago. What accounts for our longevity and why do we defy all the Actuarial Tables on length of life? Well, I think it is because the Covington attracts very interesting, intellectual residents who participate in the active lifestyle provided here: great opportunities for physical exercise (classes in cardio, balance, yoga, Zumba, walking); great excursions off campus to theater, concerts, historical sites, etc.); great social experiences (Happy Hours, Mah Jong, bridge) and all kinds of card games for mental stimulation; and great food that we no longer have to cook ourselves. Try all of the above – you’ll like it!!”

“When we moved to The Covington almost six years ago, I knew I was getting security, housekeeping, fine dining, events and activities, fitness, transportation and all the things that would make my life easier. What I didn’t expect was the sense of real community, genuine care and friendship. We are just the right size for that; a really larger population would not be inclined to this affiliation and connection that has been so meaningful to us.”
“I have lived at the Covington for 15 years. I moved in with my husband who had lost his sight and my father moved into the adjacent apartment.
It made all our lives so much easier, no grocery shopping, no more cooking. Housekeeping & laundry taken care of weekly. It was such a blessing. As a young girl I had always dreamt of living in a hotel. Believe me life at the Covington is great . Here you make friends, we have nursing staff, outings, concerts, and lots of activities. We have a Chaplain. It’s a very happy& friendly community with practically everything you could possibly need.”
