Our amazing residents

Giving thanks makes us healthier emotionally and physically.

One of the best keys to reducing stress is to take time to identify our blessings, big or small.

This year, we helped our residents focus on their blessings by asking what they are thankful for. Here are some of their heartwarming responses. Happy Thanksgiving from Life Care!
