My name is Bobby P. I have been a resident here at Garbry Ridge Assisted Living since June 1, 2010.” Bobby said her children were very loving to assist her in this decision, as she had been experiencing falls and they wanted to make sure she was safe. “This decision has turned out to be the best thing for me as well as my children because now my children spend their time with me and not caring for me! I love it!” When I asked Bobby what she liked about Garbry Ridge she said, “If I am being really honest, I’m waited on here! I also have the freedom to come and go as I please. In addition to the free transportation Garbry Ridge provides for doctor visits, etc., I can go anywhere in Miami County on the public transit for two bucks and don’t need my children to help me come and go. I have much more independence now than I have enjoyed for many years thanks to the provision of Garbry Ridge and their resources.” Bobby is a sports fan. Her favorite teams are the Bengals and the Reds. She loves company. Just don’t interrupt her games! Bobby also enjoys the excellent food. “The desserts are wonderful and the choices are really fun. I can also get my coffee when I want in the early morning or during the day. I also really enjoy the art class one of the other residents just started teaching. I am not an artist but Dorothy is so patient. And I enjoy the exercise program here. Another highlight is the trips that we make. Pam takes us shopping and pretty much wherever we want to go and do. Fun!
