Independent Living

"I don't think I have a typical day, there's so much going on. There's so many activities, and so many choices, and so many people that you enjoy being with. I don't really have a regular schedule. I do what I choose to do."

I don't have to shop, I don't have to cook, I don't have to plan meals. I can just go and look at the very long menu and the alternative items, and enjoy eating with all of my friends. I think that one of the problems of being alone is that people do not eat properly. It isn't as much fun when you're eating alone, and the meal time is really a very important part of our day.

Not only that, sometimes we go out to lunch. I go anywhere I want to go within the city. You sign up at the desk and the drivers are just wonderful to us. I left my car in Cambria, and finally now my grandson who's in college has the car. I have no need for it. I don't want the expense, I don't want the responsibility. They really take care of us. It's like home to me.
