True North Living: 19/2 Shorewood 19/2 - Page 8

Rose is a smile walking. She and her hus- band, Forest, moved into our 950 sq. ft. pre- mier apartment a few months ago. When they came to tour from Las Vegas, NV they could not believe how spacious the apartment felt. Forest is quiet, yet has a great sense of humor which comes out-of-the-blue. He was asked “what do you think?” He looked around the apartment and said, "Rose might be kind of hard to catch with this much room". And his humor has not stopped since. "We went up and down the coast looking for our new home. We even took a trip to Washington and California. Shorewood beat them all. That large apartment at Shorewood Senior Living just kept coming into our minds. Rose said. . . [ ] "During our tour, one of the staff members reached out and hugged one of the people who lived there. ‘I love you’ came from the staff and ‘I love you too’ came from the resident. I knew there and then I wanted to call this home.” After we got back to Las Vegas we knew Shorewood had won our hearts. We called and put the apartment on hold. Our move to Oregon was a real story, but we made it and are so glad to be here. The independence is what we enjoy. Our apartment has a full kitchen so we can eat at home or in the dining room. ~ Rose & Forest 8 | 541.997.8202 Cecil is an artist. He carves faces, creatures, and objects out of wood. We recently had a display of his art work. His walking sticks drew a lot of attention. However, the Indian Head was the hit of the show. So many people tried to purchase it, but it was not for sale. "My kids love to come to Shorewood Senior Living and have lunch with me. It is a real treat and feels like home. I have been doing some carving again which I enjoy very much. [ ] I never feel like I am living in an “old-folks home”. I am independent and live my life as I choose. But, if I need something I know help will be on the way. I meet smiles every day from my neighbors and the Shorewood staff." ~Cecil Shorewood Senior Living
