Elizabeth has been using the Wellness Center for five years. In 2008, Elizabeth had an aortic dissection. As soon as she healed, she went to the Wellness Center because she missed using it, having gone there three times a week before her surgery. An MBF specialist set up a new, less vigorous routine for her. When she started her new routine at the Wellness Center, Elizabeth was on oxygen full-time, but now she only uses oxygen at night and when she goes for long walks. Elizabeth especially enjoys walking around the CU campus.– Elizabeth
Lois’ mother Margaret lived at Golden West more than thirty years ago, and now Lois has been here for three years. It was a good choice for both of them, but with a big difference—people are living a lot longer now. Back when this was Margaret’s home, most residents were in their sixties or early seventies. Now, at age 79, Lois is considered part of the “younger crowd.” Variety has been added to her happy life by friendships not only with her peers but also with active, accomplished people in their eighties and nineties who have seen many interesting changes during their long lifetimes. Lois says she admires the Golden West staff for the hard work they put into keeping pace with the changes here by providing a wide variety of activities and varying levels of support for all of the Golden West community.– Lois
After suffering a broken hip, Bernie moved to the Mezzanine (assisted living) at Golden West. Bernie feels that he couldn’t have found a better place to live, and said, “The whole community is wonderful.” Bernie enjoys the many activities that are offered here, such as Sit and be Fit (an exercise class) and Creative Corner (an art class). He knows that assisted living is the last place that some people want to go, but Bernie suggests that people come in with an idea that it is great and fun because there is a lot to do and everything gets taken care of, such as meals and housekeeping.– Bernie
