providence place “I have always lived in Holyoke and am glad I found a local retirement community. When my husband passed away in ’08, the house became too much to take care of. Something always needed attention and it was hard to find a trusted repairman. I’ve been surprised that I don't miss my home. I think it is because I brought all its good memories with me.” “Now when we visit,” says Kristina, her daughter, “we don't have the endless chores to do or the need to run errands for Mom. We just enjoy each other.” “We have great entertainers here along with Happy Hours, birthday parties, and lots of laughter. No big grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning up. This is the best thing I did for myself and I recommend Providence Place highly. Just don't wait too long. This is a place to come when you are well and can enjoy it.”

Retired from the court system, Jim Bloom now enjoys the “easy living” of Providence Place in his bright, sunny apartment. Still driving, he continues to meet up with friends, enjoy a game of golf, etc., but without worrying about home ownership chores.

“This is the best thing I did for myself and I recommend Providence Place highly. Just don't wait too long. This is a place to come when you are well and can enjoy it.”
