Four years ago I was living alone. I lost most of my eyesight in one eye. At that time, I was 91 years old. This gave me a wake-up call. It was time to be around other people. Checking out the independent living homes in the area, the Ellen Leach Memorial Home was the most appealing to me. The people here are friendly. The wait, cook and cleaning staff are proficient, helpful and very caring. I am now 95 years old, and I know I made the correct decision." ~ Ed H.
