Testimonial Contest Winners

 AALC is pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 Testimonial Contest. This year, we received  a record number of testimonials from SL communities across the state.  It was hard to pick our favorites but we believe our top testimonials capture the spirit of Supportive Living and demonstrate why “Happiness is Ageless!”

TEST1.jpg

1st Place              
Lois Corbitt - Cambridge House of O’Fallon

“Our community activities have many residents taking a new look at life.  When I moved in I found I was surrounded by many new friends, and the opportunities to be involved in activities had me trying new things all the time.  You wouldn’t expect residents to be playing volleyball, but we do it with a beach ball, played inside where it is safe and fun.”

2nd Place
Sharon Mounts – Prairie Winds of Urbana
“Living here has given me more confidence in myself. And, I have transitioned to a much happier atmosphere. Everyone here, staff and residents, is so nice and helpful. There is so much to do and enjoy. Life is better and I have a lot to live for.”

3rd Place
Vivian Youngblood – Heritage Woods of Flora (written by son, Dennis)

“Since Mom moved in, she’s made new friends; she’s always talking to somebody.  She’s not lonely anymore.  It really gives us peace of mind there’s always someone around.  We took her house and put it into two rooms.  It looks exactly like it did at home.”
