Our mom, Florence Tucker, has lived there 2 1/2 years. She is our hero. She lived in the same home since she was married at 17, but after one long cold winter she decided it was time to start a new warm, worry free adventure. She toured many assisted living places in the city and she chose Paradise Villa.
She, my siblings and I took 2 months and sorted almost 70 years worth of treasures. She gave what she wanted to give to whom she wanted, all with the history of the item…I know this isn’t the case for many of those who live at Paradise Villa, but we are proud that she was willing and able to make these decisions.
I know she misses home at times, but she does not miss worrying about the house upkeep, the yard maintenance, meals, keeping warm (every hour of every day), and sitting waiting alone for the phone to ring or someone to drop in.
Paradise Villa has so much to offer if the residents are willing and able to participate. The staff have always been very kind and treated Mom like family.
Our family certainly appreciates all you do for her and the other residents.
