“I was living in an apartment on the second floor with no elevator. It wasn’t working for me. I’m 63 years old and have arthritis.
Three weeks ago, I moved into Holy Family Plaza in Denver (of Archdiocesan Housing Inc). Then I got connected to all this support. They told me about today’s event, the Self-Care Fair at Mulroy Senior Center. I’m getting my haircut – it would cost me otherwise.
The services are great. At Holy Family Plaza, they treat us as kings and queens. It was a big move for me. Now I’m on the fourth floor with mountain views and a patio. There’s another perk, too. Everyone is so nice, and they treat us well. We get to meet others in the building. And you don’t feel so old.
My idea of aging has changed. I don’t need to be scared, because everything I need is there. I’m not isolated. I’m blessed.”
