Introducing Our Senior Resident Ambassador Program

Whether you’re moving into a new neighborhood or a cozy community like ours, it always takes some time to adjust. Settling in and unpacking can be a real bear – not to mention getting the lay of the land, discovering important resources and locations and finding your social niche.

When you’re trying to adapt to an unfamiliar place, it always helps to have a guide. That’s where our resident ambassadors come in. When you move to Lamar Court, you’ll be paired off with one or two ambassadors who will get to know you and welcome you to our community.

After greeting you in your new apartment, our ambassadors will answer any questions you might have and show you around. They also often plan for dinner and activities with their new neighbors, like a scenic bus ride, a game of Wii Sports or attending an art class – whatever helps residents feel at home faster.

Who Are Our Resident Ambassadors?

They’re warm and friendly folks who want to create a greater sense of community for new arrivals. And of course, they live here at Lamar Court – which means they know all about making your move-in easier and more enjoyable. Here’s an introduction to just a few of the people who might welcome you when you move.
