See and learn what’s happening at SpringShire
A continuing care retirement community will host an open house this week to give the community a chance to glimpse what the completed community will look like.
SpringShire Retirement LLC will hold an open house on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the event, which will take place at the SpringShire Informational Center, 3404 N.C. 43 North, Greenville, the staff will be meeting with visitors and showing off plans via a virtual tour.
The virtual tour will allow those who attend the opportunity to see what SpringShire will look like when construction is completed. The tour showcases the options offered for maintenance-free living, from estate homes to a variety of apartment layouts.
After viewing the virtual tour, SpringShire invites guests to stop by the gazebo overlooking the natural, 138-acre property and envision the community for themselves.
“We are thrilled with our new virtual tour, and we’re even more thrilled to show it off,” said Morgan Lamphere, vice President of marketing for the community. “We cannot wait for future residents and potential future residents to see the beautiful plans we have for SpringShire and become just as excited as we are.”
The community will consist of 150 independent-living apartments, 12 independent cottages, an 8-bed assisted living unit and a 12-bed skilled nursing unit. In addition to the homes, the community will offer a variety of services and amenities such as dining venues, fitness center & indoor pool, a movie theater, card rooms, and easy access to walkways and nature trails.

SpringShire welcomes Gostele as team member
SpringShire has hired Valerie Gostele as a new team member. Gostele comes to SpringShire by way of Chicago, where for the past 8½ years she guided families and future residents through the moving process at a continuing care retirement community in Lincolnshire, IL. In this role, she said she enjoyed listening to future residents and learning about their stories.
Prior to working in senior living, Gostele held sales manager positions with Hyatt and Marriott hotels. She always has worked in the customer service and marketing arenas and it was in these positions that she found a passion for working with the senior population. Gostele’s compassion for seniors stems from her close relationship with her parents. She became a large part of her father’s support system when he lived with her for the last 10 years of his life.
From this experience, Gostele said, “I truly believe the need for great camaraderie, comprehensive health care options, superb amenities, and an overall fun and active lifestyle must be available to people in their retirement years.”
Gostele moved to North Carolina to be closer to her daughter. She brings a compassion and understanding to discussing and making the decision to move into a life plan retirement community to SpringShire.
Gostele said, “I look forward to being a part of the success of this beautiful SpringShire community representing the richness and history of Greenville and its residents.”
