Resident Story: Marge & Julian
Active Life, Happy Wife
After 40 years of marriage, when his wife Marge began to need more care than Julian could provide, he worried about finding a place where she would be happy and safe. “At other communities I toured, the residents were just sitting around all day” says Julian, and he knew that would not be the right community for his wife.
Until her diagnosis in 2015, Marge had been active all her life. At Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm, Marge now lives in a secure environment where Julian can rest easy knowing that his wife is safe. For the first time in 3 years, she is back to her active lifestyle and making new friends. Residents attend daily activities, social events, and even take unique off-site trips such as fishing, bowling, luncheons and more. Marge also receives the dedicated memory and personal care attention she needs from staff passionate about working with Alzheimers seniors.
Julian and Marge both agree – she’s happier than she’s been in a long time. “The personnel is phenomenal, everyone is smiling and happy. Marge is always busy – when they aren’t in activities, they are out on a bus somewhere. She seems so happy” says Julian, and Marge chimes in “Yeah, I am happy!”
