"I'm a housing advocate who finds housing for clients due to homelessness or a need for better living. In seeking a better living for my mother to live out the rest of her years with joy and abundance, I set up a visit at the Providence House in Brighton, that she mentioned to my sisters and I because of visiting a good friend of hers. Upon our visit, one could get a good sense of what was ahead just by entering the building and seeing the beautiful ambiance, and hearing the laughter of the residence in the communal area. We were greeted at the reception area where visitors have to sign in so the Providence Team know at all times who's in the building which is great for safety reasons. They have various activities that take place daily (featured in the lobby), a hair salon where they can get their hair done (for an extra fee), a gym area where they can exercise (being enhanced), and they get served three meals a day in a restaurant style dining room, linen table clothes, plates, silverware, and dinner served to them (with a restaurant style menu to choose from), and need I say, they're in the process of updating and painting the place. This place is Amazing! You feel at home right away, and the apartments are beautiful, well-lit with sunshine and everyone from the staff to the residents are friendly. My mother oooh'ed, and awww'ed the entire visit and just kept saying "I love this place". Needless to say, she ran into her good friend (who was amongst the laughter), and even met a women who she went to High School with in Jersey City, NJ over 60yrs ago and talked and held hands like they knew each other forever. I can't say enough about this place! This is truly a place of independent living and a place where seniors don't feel like they don't "belong" due to loneliness and depression from living alone, because they always have people around them, they have a sense of security, and live in a beautiful home where they're still living independently - studies show that if one lives a better life, they live a longer life! As a Housing Advocate, I recommend The Providence House!"
