SRG Senior Living Communities' News

Back in the day, radio was the lifeline for Americans to receive news and information. Radio programming included everything from soap operas and quiz shows to fine drama, news and sports. You may even recall popular hosts like Walter Winchell, Kate Smith and Arthur Godfrey.

Today, "blogs" have become a similarly important source of information and entertainment. Here on Senior Resource Group's news blog you'll find news about our retirement communities nationwide (see links below). We update this page regularly, so please visit often.
