I have been a resident at The Barrington for several years and I am a widow. I am happy here; never lonely, very safe, with friends and a caring staff.
Staying Active is important in Senior Living Communities Back
Making the decision to move to a senior living community doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your daily activeness and exercise. Staying active is an important part of your lifestyle as you age. Exercise has a plethora of benefits such as the opportunity for social activity, improved strength and mobility and strengthened mental function. Now, I’m not talking about the kind of exercise that involves heavy weight lifting or running a marathon, simply going for a five minute walk has benefits for your heart and bones.
At The Barrington, you will find several ways to fulfill your exercise goals. Both our independent living and assisted living communities have access to a wellness center strategically designed for seniors. At the fitness center, you can join in on yoga or martial arts classes that are well-suited for each and every one of our cherished residents. Our seasonally heated outdoor swimming pool is perfect for year-round enjoyment. At the pool, residents can participate in aqua aerobics classes that are easy on the joints and enhance balance. On the property, you will also find landscaped walking paths. Residents enjoy strolls on the trail to experience the nature and weather in beautiful Largo, Florida. With options for independent or assisted living residents, you can be rest assured that an active lifestyle is encouraged at The Barrington.
Our job at The Barrington is to help you enjoy life in retirement. Part of happy living is taking care of your body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle helps fight disease and keep your muscles and brain strong. Join The Barrington community in choosing to improve overall well-being and pursue an active way of life.

I came to the Barrington in 2009; this place saved my life. The room my daughter picked out for me overlooks the school and the children who go there. The trees and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. I love to walk outdoors and meditate. I also enjoy our trips to the beaches and parks. I am on the welcoming committee, serve at happy hour, and I go with the Marketing Team to do outreach. This is my home and the staff is my family.
The Barrington in Largo, FL, was recommended to us by A Place for Mom as an option for my parents. My wife and I visited The Barrington for a tour. We were greeted by Sherrie (Regional Supervisor, Tarantino Properties) for our visit. Sherrie was extremely knowledgeable & professional; a great representative for The Barrington.

I love it here. Katie and Amber are the reason I love it here. You both are exactly why I love every day here.
There are just so many activities here that it's hard to choose what to do. I love the poker on Thursday nights. It's been an easy transition for me.
The people that work here are really nice and attentive. I like playing Scrabble and staying busy. Our walking club is really fun. I love being outside. Our walkway around the building is so nice. I always like when they come in and help me get ready for my day in the morning. The Parkinson's program is so nice to get my day started too.
I like the activities here. That's my favorite part. We painted bird houses and now they're in the courtyard. I love the entertainment here. The music is from the right era! I am really happy.
