The word change evokes various emotions with individuals. To some, it means uncertainties, restlessness, and not knowing. To others, change means opportunities, new beginnings, and growth. One of life’s constants is change. Ready or not, it happens. We like change on our own terms, but don’t always have that option. I have heard a lot of comments over the past weeks after the display boards were placed by the dining room that showed the master plan for Bay Village and how it will position the campus to move into its future. For the most part, the feedback has been very positive, i.e., “I can’t wait to get it started!” and “I hope to see it when it is all done in a few years!”. Then there are those who have said, “Why do we have to change?” and “Why move the library to a new location?”. Everything that is being shown on the display boards is going to provide Bay Village opportunities to have new amenities for our existing residents and position Bay Village to be able to grow into our future. So whether you are one to look at these changes positively or are questioning why, just remember that all of these feelings are normal as Bay Village moves into its future.
Labor Day is this month and constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful staff who provide service and care to our residents on a daily basis here at Bay Village.
