Life at The Village at Unity is more than retirement. It’s where our residents fulfill lifetime dreams and work together to create meaningful memories and connections. Learn more about living at The Village at Unity and how our team made one resident’s dream of traveling to all 50 states a reality.
The Village at Unity resident Dick Skinner is well-traveled. In fact, he has been to 49 out of 50 states, with only North Dakota remaining. In a conversation about bucket list items with our life enrichment team, Dick brought up that he had a bucket list item that he did not think our team could make happen. After telling us about his travels and the missing state, we began researching things to do in North Dakota. It was brought up in a meeting with a representative from Leisure Care, where Leisure Care generously offered to pay for Dick’s ticket for North Dakota so he could complete his nation-wide travels.
“Working with seniors has always been a passion of mine. Making a difference no matter how big or small brings me joy. It is such a rewarding feeling.” – Deanna Crawford, Life Enrichment Manager
As a tangible reminder of his travels, he was given a scratch-off map of the United States with every state scratched off, except North Dakota, so he can scratch that off once he visits.
