I moved to a villa at Kerrisdale Gardens nearly 6 years ago, and can honestly say it’s the best decision I could have made.
Why would anyone want to spend their twilight years living on their own, whether they be on their own, or fortunate enough to both be together?
I’ve been happily residing independently in an apartment at Kerrisdale Gardens for nearly 6 years. Moving to this facility has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
