Shirley Corley, Margeson Resident
After 14 years at Margeson, Shirley considers the other residents who live on her hall “family.” After raising a family and then losing her husband, Shirley relishes being able to live on her own. Shirley says she especially appreciates that she can reserve the rec room for family events when her relatives and friends come to visit. “I love the once a month suppers with all the girls, the community garden, and the fact that the people on my floor all look after each other.”
Patty, Wamesit Resident
It’s been a wonderful first year at Wamesit for Patti and her children. She loves that her kids feel safe and can play in the backyard where she enjoys planting strawberries. “I like going to the weekly dinners at the rec center, taking classes that help me with my finances, and meeting new people who have become friends.”
