I moved my mom to Stevenson House from Oklahoma five years ago. What a joy to find such a warm diverse community with wonderful activities at a fraction of the cost of most senior housing in the area -- and five minutes from my house!

I am a bit biased because my daughter, Beth Colehower, organized the event, which was a huge success! Notice the Tibetan-style peace flags across the top of the photo. Several weeks ago each resident made one of the triangles with a map cutout showing where they came from, a photo of themselves and some other personal information. There was also a large map on which residents marked their places of origin. Many of these ideas have come from the residents. Beth's two daughters and her husband also came and joined in the activities. Lots of happy faces at Stevenson House!!!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
