Here is my story. It was a little hard in the beginning because my muscles were not used to doing anything. They were stiff, but then they loosened up. My blood sugar was very, very low, and they said I had hypoglycemia.

I live in Bryallwood in a very good building and I would like to go back home, but I can’t do that right now.

Here I have a guardian, helping me get things together. The aides help me when I need it. Now I can go to the bathroom by myself, I can do certain things by myself. They teach us how to make things by ourselves – and it’s fun. The doctors are also good.As for the therapy, well, I walk better with a walker than I do with a cane. I feel alright physically, and I do feel alright mentally. I get three meals a day in here, nothing wrong with that.

The people are fantastic and I have very good friends. I go to all the activities. That keeps me busy.

Having dinner together with other residents is helpful. It helps a lot.

I enjoy jewelry classes very much. I  made all these jewelry with Natalie. Isn’t that pretty? I love it.

Otherwise, I like the bingo, dominoes, and I like playing cards. And I keep coming back to Fairview.
