Wilson Gómez, 79 years old
“I am from Lares and I write décimas, ten-line stanzas of poetry that are sung, and here I have people to share them. We have a good, united, community. I lived in a neighborhood near here, and when I was younger and I was passing by, I said to myself “one day I’ll live in that building,” and here I am. I like the atmosphere, they treat me well.”

Carmen Teresa Torres, 64 years old
“A few years ago I retired from teaching. I lived in a house with a huge yard, and with many expenses. When my husband and I began to receive social security, we did not have enough money, so we talked about  ALTEGARTEN LAS TERESAS ll, THE INTERIOR CASTLE.  We requested admittance  and we moved quickly. We are close to everything. We are independent and have our car and move everywhere. My apartment is comfortable and meets all our needs. I have new friends and a good safe environment.”

Celeste Cabral, 76 years old
“I moved here 5 years ago. This is excellent. I tell my friends: “Go, see and request admittance.” My apartment has a large bedroom with many windows for a rich breeze every day. From 1 to 100, I give this place a 100. Nobody takes me out of here! In addition, activities are divine. “
