Meet Mary Lou, a resident at BBH’s The Coolidge at Sudbury. Mary Lou previously lived in Sudbury for decades and raised her children there. She had intended to live out her retirement in Florida, but following the death of her husband and decline in her own health, she and her daughter decided it was time to return to Massachusetts to be close to her family.
For Mary Lou, one of the most important aspects of The Coolidge is the camaraderie. Friendly neighbors and conscientious staff, plus gatherings like summer barbeques and monthly birthday celebrations, create an uplifting atmosphere. “After my husband died, I went through a great depression – I was in and out of the hospital all the time and kept to myself,” she told us, “Now I have more energy, I get involved with activities here, and my doctors are saying I am doing very well.”
The spring and summer are some of Mary Lou’s favorite times, enjoying the view of the Coolidge’s beautiful grounds and seeing neighbors walking their dogs, or sitting out on the veranda. She is thrilled to call The Coolidge home and her family feels comforted knowing that Mary Lou is nearby in a safe, healthy, and social environment.
