6 Muriel & Elinore Both Muriel and Elinore arrived at The Victorian within two months of each other. It took no time at all for them to realize that they had many common interests and came from similar backgrounds. Before long, they arranged to dine at the same table, were sharing family news and stories, and attending programs and activities together. Friendships like Muriel and Elinore s are only one of the many fostered by the unique community at The Victorian.

8 Hilda When life had become difficult and isolating for Hilda at her Arizona home, she and her family made the decision to bring her home to Cape Cod. Coming to stay at Liberty Commons proved to be a great fit for Hilda, her son Raymond, and their loved ones. It has not only brought her closer to her own family, but has also enabled her to foster new relationships with staff members like Emily. Within days of her arrival, Hilda began participating in the many activities offered and her fun and outgoing personality began to shine. Her family has great peace of mind knowing her physical, emotional, and social needs are being met in a wonderfully supportive setting.
