Cadbury Senior Lifestyles, Lewes held a special event to mark its 10th Anniversary Aug. 10. Residents, staff and guests shared festivities, dinner and reflections from over the years to commemorate the opening of the community in Lewes a decade ago.
The community was established as a not-for-profit continuing care retirement community in 1996, followed by 10 years of planning and dedication that led to construction of Cadbury on 40 acres adjacent to the historic town of Lewes. Cadbury's first residents moved into the "only CCRC at the beach" early in 2007, offering both cottages and apartments for independent living, as well as assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing. Cadbury also has become a vital part of the Lewes senior community and an ardent supporter of a wide range of area charities.
"We are celebrating a major milestone in the life of Cadbury Senior Lifestyles, Lewes and its tradition of serving not only our resident and their families, but the town of Lewes and surrounding area as a whole," said Carol Holzman, executive director at Cadbury Senior Lifestyles, Lewes.
The Cadbury Senior Lifestyles, Lewes campus and setting is designed for active and vibrant seniors age 62 and greater. Over the years, the community's residents and staff have continued to support scores of local, regional and national charities and organizations, including the Alzheimer's Association; American Civil Rights Union; American Red Cross; American Cancer Society; Cape Henlopen State Park; Greater Lewes Foundation; Lewes Senior Center; Sussex County Resource Center; Wounded Warrior Project and numerous area churches and many others.
