Meet Mahin, an Iranian immigrant and resident of the The Coolidge at Sudbury. Two years ago, after living with her sister in Wayland, Mahin and her husband Parvis moved to the Coolidge. This move provided Mahin with the opportunity for independence while remaining close to her family, and that combination has changed her life.
As someone who likes to stay active, Mahin takes full advantage of the service-enriched housing available to all residents of The Coolidge. She uses the fitness room regularly, and, along with Resident Service Coordinator, Julie, became certified to teach “Matter of Balance” classes to residents of The Coolidge and the greater Sudbury community. She also visits the library daily to use the computer and study.
Mahin loves the sense of community at The Coolidge; she enjoys playing bingo, attending movie nights, and chatting with her neighbors. “Living here is good for my quality of life. I am a foreigner and it’s a great to talk to the other residents and learn from them, and they like to learn from me as well. I’ve never met people so kind – they are really special.”
