92 Years of Perspective

Posted on

Hardships compelled Jean to move into Garnette Gardens in Redwood Falls nearly three years ago, but they differed from the pandemic we’re now experiencing.

A fire at her home in Redwood County caused damage so severe that it made more sense to move than to repair. Compounding the situation was the untimely death of a dear neighbor who handled work around the house that Jean couldn’t manage. Those experiences provide Jean some perspective on the challenges people are having now with COVID-19.

“It’s hard but this is a good place to be,” Jean says. “We have friends here and you can always talk to them.”

Jean is also in touch at least twice a day by phone with her two daughters. Her time at Garnette Gardens has given her the security she needs. “I feel safe here,” she says. “When I was in my house, I would worry about something a lot of times. I don’t worry here because you’re around people. I’m not alone.”

The community offers 61 one and two-bedroom apartments for seniors who value their independence but want access to personal care and supportive services.
