Ann’s Story

Fraser {seo}
You never know what you are capable of until you try. When I moved into my Fraser apartment, I had no idea how independent I would become. We waited two years for an opening, and I feel lucky that I found this place.

You never know what you are capable of until you try. When I moved into my Fraser apartment, I had no idea how independent I would become. We waited two years for an opening, and I feel lucky that I found this place.

When I moved in my mom and dad helped me decorate. My dad put together furniture, hung pictures, making it feel like mine and like home. He liked Fraser and was excited that I was a part of this community. The staff is very supportive and responsive, and I found as the years have gone by that I can do this on my own.

I like walking in the community, seeing what is going on, going to the grocery store, the hardware store. The location is perfect, in the heart of the community.

I live close to the bus stop, which allows me to get to work on time. I’ve had my job for eleven years, but wasn’t responsible for getting there on my own. But now I am.

I balance my checkbook, shop, keep to a schedule and cook. All of these things came from moving into a Fraser Independent Living Apartment. Before, in our family home, I was isolated and stuck. This apartment has opened me up a lot.

I’m proud of my apartment. Everyone likes to visit. The windows let in lots of light. I’m even able to host my brother, sister and mother for holidays. My dad would be proud if he could see me now. I’m really doing this, and it’s all because of Fraser.
