40 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 -Aug. 14, 2003 Woods Edge Apartments suited for active adult living fessional, yet reasonably priced services that we felt our residents would benefit greatly from having them available on-site." CHEER was founded in the ear- ly 1970s to provide meals, home services, transportation, and com- panionship to homebound seniors. Expanding their capability to pro- vide these original services throughout all of Sussex County, CHEER has also added the avail- ability for patrons to participate in social activities such as Computer Club, Quilters Club, lecture se- res, glee club concerts, and exer- cise classes. While the Harbor Lights CHEER Center at Woods Edge Apartments will make the senior services and activities convenient, the space available on each floor of the apartment buildings will provide the opportunity to raise CHEER service to a higher level. Visiting professionals will have the space to administer regular ex- aminatjon and medication pro- grams on a scheduled basis to res- idents desiring such services. The Woods Edge Apartments units, restricted to tenants 55 years and older, are nearly 1,000 square feet and include two bed- room, 1.5 bath units, balconies and galley kitchens. They also include washer and dryers, microwave ovens, dish- washers, interior hall entrances, and 24-hour management. Building amenities include a wellness center with exercise equipment, a 1,200-square-foot, first-floor meeting area, two lounges and commercial eleva- tor's. Of the total 40 apartments, 21 units will lease at $875 per month, and 19 units will be at $975 per month. All units will be available for occupancy in October. For more information is avail- able at 645-1003. Woods Edge Apartments, locat- ed on Kings Highway just off of Route 1 near Lewes, offer mainte- nance-free living combined with on-site, professional services available through CHEER, the nonprofit agency serving the needs of senior citizens in Sussex County.
