On August 29, 2020, our new life began. My husband Gene and I moved into OLOL and were warmly welcomed by all the staff and vibrant community of “masked” fellow seniors. Everyone assured us that when the pandemic was over, there would be many social and religious opportunities. But I can assure you that the last 6 months have been filled with meeting new friends, special meals, events and entertainment, all safely planned. Each day we are thankful we took the steps and moved forward to find our new home. We love it here.

What Our Residents Say

I have been here for 12+ years and I knew the minute I walked in the door and heard residents coming off the elevator telling jokes that this was a friendly place! You can enjoy yourself all day long and be social, but at the end of the day, when you return to your apartment, you have all of the privacy you desire, which is invaluable to me. Safety was also a big reason I decided to leave my home and move to OLOL, where I did not have to live alone.
– Fran
Everyone here is friendly. It’s a home, a family place. I like having a nice place to live.
– George
I came to OLOL with my wife, who I lovingly cared for here and who has since passed. I love the convenience of my apartment near all of the amenities and using the workout room as well as playing cards with friends every week.
