What our residents say 

Angel Nazario, 71 years old
“I had no place to live. I knew about the Residence. I knew it was clean and good, and I asked to be admitted. I love it because it’s quiet. I do not like loud noises. This is very nice here. Plus, the comfort of my apartment with my own room, that’s tremendous. This is great, it’s like family living and in peace.”

Martita Droz, 80 years old
“I’m from Ponce, and my family visits me all the time. This place is quiet, safe and comfortable. What else can I ask for.”

Hilda Almodovar, 78 years old
“I am an independent person with my own car. I do everything. Sometimes I even go to San Juan. I knew the Residence  since they began construction, and when I was left alone, I said, -I’m going there. I’ve lived here for 6 years and I would not change it for anything. It is a good, quiet place, with lots of fresh breeze. The activities are varied and entertaining, and I love the garden.”
