Whether it’s a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, or wife, women have played an essential role in shaping our lives and communities. Many seniors also have fond memories of the strong and courageous women who have inspired and supported them throughout their lives. These women may have been family members, caregivers, teachers, or mentors who have helped shape the person they are today.
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, Pegasus Senior Living would like to celebrate and share the story of Ms. Gladys P., a beloved resident at The Renaissance of Florence.
Gladys P.’s Story
Gladys moved into The Renaissance of Florence from her home on August 16, 2022. Ms. P.’s husband was hospitalized at the time, and he was then transferred to an area skilled nursing facility. Her family members were concerned about her being alone, and so was she. Gladys had visited our community several times to visit with church members over the years, and she knew this was where she wanted to be.
Soon after she moved in, her husband, unfortunately, passed away. Ms. P. shared that team members’ and residents’ support and kindness during this emotional and challenging time was invaluable.
Ms. P. indicated that she has always been received with warmth, care, and compassion since living in our community. She absolutely loves our gardens and beautiful flowers. Ms. P. feels that she has significantly benefited from being around others her own age, participating in activities and outings, and eating nutritious meals. She did say, jokingly, that her love for our macaroni and cheese has led to her gaining weight!
The Renaissance of Florence is truly blessed to call this lady our neighbor!
