Testimonials

“I lived with my daughter after my husband died. My daughter said that I needed friends and since I didn’t drive and do much around the house, I was becoming stagnant. She began shopping around for different places and then she found Avila Gardens. It was just the right size and there was even a Chapel, which was very important. Now I am delighted to be here; I have many friends. They are like my extended family and it’s not too big here. I am the resident sacristan and am now very active in all of the activities with the Carmelite Sisters and with the other residents.”

Current Resident at Avila Gardens

…Living at Avila Gardens has indeed proven to be a happy and fulfilling time for me. By sharing stories with other residents of our lifes journey, our joys, heartaches and trials, we have formed a unique family bond.

…Everyday is filled with many social activities tailored to suit our personal preferences – Bingo, Exercise Classes, Puzzles, Movies, planned trips to various places. I thank God for directing me to Avila Gardens, a residence that I can truly call “home” supported by the love, care and devotion of the our beloved Carmelite Sisters.

My grandmother lived at Avila for one of the best years of her life. A fiercely independent woman, it was not the easiest of transitions, but by her mid nineties, we all agreed it was the best for her body, mind and spirit to live within reach of support. Rosalie learned to be more social, be more humble and enjoy a life full of the spirit of family and God. We saw a miraculous transition in this once hardened woman, into a softer, gentler and more at peace soul. Though her stay at Avila was short, the impact Avila had on our family continues today. Life at Avila is full of heart and soul and the Carmelite Sisters truly impact entire families.
