The article focuses on the full-service bar and walker valet service offered at the Riddle Village Retirement Community Media in Pennsylvania. In 2008, the retirement community renovated, expanded and added amenities in an effort to establish itself as an upscale retirement option. The idea behind the bar was to accommodate those residents who had to wait to be seated for dinner. For the valet service, a hostess asks a seated resident if his or her walker can be valeted in a room until dinner is finished.
