Vince G., nephew of a Senior LIFE Uniontown member
|“I feel so much more happy with Senior LIFE Reading. I was so lonely and bored because I couldn’t walk around much anymore. The program gave me people to talk to—somewhere to go. And it meets all my medical needs.” [July 2017]|

James H., a Senior LIFE York member
|“[Senior LIFE York] is like a free pass to Disney World. I mean, I could think clearly for five minutes. I could run out and get some errands done.” |
Mercedes W., daughter of a Senior LIFE York member
|“I think Senior LIFE York gave me the opportunity to make new friends, socialize, and eat a warm meal. I used to be afraid to leave the house after my husband died, and the program gave me more meaning to wanting to be alive again. I would not be this happy without them.” [May 2017]|
