Real Life Resident Stories - Dorothy H.

 “I’ve never been so busy in my entire life.”

Dorothy, an upbeat resident at Summerhill PARC, has never had a schedule quite like this. It’s no wonder. She is always on the go. Although she only just moved in six months ago, Dorothy already has a great social network, fitness regime and activities to keep her busy.

Dorothy says she’s never felt so energized. “I attend exercise classes three times a week, join the bus excursions, I play BINGO and go to the casino,” she smiles. “Before moving in here, I was alone. Now I’m with people all the time.”

One of Dorothy’s favourite pastimes is her weekly afternoon card games. She joins with two other Summerhill PARC residents to play a form of Rummy for nickels. “There’s simply no time to think about feeling bad or lonely here.” she explains.

Dorothy treats herself to a massage on Fridays and onsite salon appointments Saturday mornings. Why not? After all, as she points out: “I have no responsibilities, and a housekeeper. Life is great!”

That’s how it is at Summerhill PARC:  residents get involved. They stay active.  And pursue passions. They eat healthier and laugh more. And with PARC’s focus on maintaining a healthy body and mind through our Independent Living+ program, it’s easy to see how life’s just better here.
