Resident Testimonials

“As a senior, to live in New Life Village is like being offered a chance to remain “ forever young.” The contact with families and young children is a joyful challenge with many unexpected rewards. When I first came here, I had no idea what to expect. I have since discovered a caring loving community intent on giving the best of themselves to make the dream come true.”
