Thinking about moving to Raynham? Want to know some history about this great town? Things to do and see?

Raynham was established in 1731 as a distinct and separate township carved out of the northeast corner of the “Town” of Taunton. Known as the site of the earliest successful iron works (1652), Raynham continues today as a thriving, successful community. Once a rural hamlet, the town is fast becoming a suburban bedroom community. But because of its location at the crossroads of Route 24, 44 & I-495 (as well as Route 138 & 104), it is also a commercial center in its own right. Raynham Woods Commerce Park, a 330 acre site, is home to some major corporations and is one of the premier industrial parks in Southeastern Massachusetts. Business thrives along two major corridors, Routes 44 and 138.

Raynham provides terrific recreational programs and facilities for both children and adults. The Town’s 300 acre Borden Colony complex has fields for soccer, baseball and softball plus acres of forest and farmlands for passive recreation. Johnson’s Pond is open to the public for fishing, ice-skating, picnicking and boating. In addition, the Town has numerous conservation areas for the preservation of the natural environment.

The Raynham Public Library is a great destination for a relaxing day of discovery. Located at 760 South Main Street, the library is open on:
Monday: 10 am – 8 pm
Tuesday: 10 am – 8 pm
Wednesday: 10 am – 8 pm
Thursday: 10 am – 6 pm
Friday: 10 am – 5 pm

Did you know that 6 out of 10 falls happen at home? Many falls can be prevented by making some simple changes n your home and yard.

  1. Install handrails and grab bars. People underestimate how fall-preventative these can be. They are easily installed and very affordable. You can pick them up in almost any hardware store. Install them in places like your bathroom, all stairwells and staircases, near your bed, etc.. Install any place you go up and down a lot.
  2. Improve your lighting. A nightlight down the hall will prevent you from tripping over anything left about on your way to the bathroom at 2 am. Lights on stairwells and on all porches will again guide you more safely to where you need to go. Keep extra bulbs on hand at all times.
  3. Another major concern is improperly tacked down carpeting and area rugs. If you do not have wall to wall carpeting in your home, somewhere in your home lays an area rug. If these rugs are not properly tacked down or grip padded, invest in some quality non-slip padding and tacks.
  4. Winter is coming so be prepared with salt for your walkways. I know this is a given in New England, but many people do not realize they have walked on black ice until it is too late. Salt daily in cold weather.
  5. Place a telephone and lamp right next to your bed and couch.
  6. In your kitchen, install mats near the sink and fridge. Keep daily items in easy reach to avoid stretching and reaching.
  7. Wear non-skid shoes and slippers. Grandchildren love to give their grandparents slippers and robes. Make sure those slippers have some type of grip so you avoid sliding down the hall and landing on the floor.

You may be retired, but you are probably busier now than you have ever been. Don’t let a fall, that can be easily prevented, get in your way. Make these simple changes and enjoy your home and retirement!

As we near our 50’s we feel like it is time to slow down and enjoy life more. Our kids are out of the home, we are getting closer to 55 + retirement communities and we feel like we deserve living out the rest of our lives in a relaxing environment. At this point in life, it’s a great time to consider moving into Pine Hill Estates.

One of the main benefits is that you are able to downsize and simplify your life. Once your kids are out of the home, it no longer makes sense to maintain a larger home. A large home means more heating, cooling, cleaning, and more money spent on repairs. Most 55 + retirement communities offer smaller homes; typically two bedroom, two bathroom homes. The yards in these communities are usually smaller as well, which means less lawn maintenance. The homes are usually also just one level, which means not having to navigate stairs as your health deteriorates. These smaller homes are not only less expensive to maintain, they will also be less expensive to purchase.

Being in a community with people around the same age as you is another benefit. It is easy to make a lot of friends that share common interests when all of your neighbors are around the same age as you. Usually there are activities sponsored by the community at a clubhouse or common area. Some have regular holiday parties, bingo games and shopping trips to local stores. Most 55 + retirement communitiescollect HOA (Home Owner’s Association) fees in order to fund these parties and outdoor amenities. The HOA fees also usually cover services such as lawn mowing, snow removal and trash pick-up. 

Living in a 55 + retirement communities will not only save you money, but it also gives you peace of mind. It also removes the challenge of maintaining a large home and yard and gives you more free time to enjoy your pastimes. Call Pine Hill Estates today to see what we can do for you!
