"Wonderful activities for my mother ..."
"I was so worried mom would hibernate in her apartment, but The Stafford's Social Wellness Program has created an atmosphere where she feels safe and that someone is looking out for her. Since moving here, she is so busy with all the wonderful activities she barely has time to fit me into her busy schedule. We are so happy she is here. She is, too." ... A happy family member
