What brought you here?
Olive, Resident since 1995
I realized that I was at the age where I would need some attention before
very long. And I had lived a few years with family and they were very
gracious and all but I felt like it would be a long time (since my mother
lived to 96 and I figured I'm gonna do the same thing). So I figured
they (my family) needed their own life and so I wanted to take care
of myself so they wouldn't have to worry about me.
And I had gone through the years with my mother, trying to find a place
for her to live and finding it very difficult to find a good home. An
in-law had been a board member of the Atascadero Christian Home, so
I knew the name.
up and came to the grounds and smelled the pine needles and the beautiful
air and fell in love with the place (and so did the family). So I moved
up here in 1995. I used to tell people that we used to come here for
vacation, now I live here. It's just beautiful.
