  The Best Part of Living at Farm
 Pond is Living Close to My Family.
                                      “My daughter who lives in
                                      Framingham selected the place
                                      and the apartment. I trust her and
                                      she did a good job. I am very
                                      happy here.” Rhoda did not take
                                      long to make the adjustment. She
                                      saw Farm Pond and liked it. “I do
                                      whatever they offer. I like exercise,
                                      playing Mah Jongg and Cribbage.”
                                      She feels safe and secure here. “I
                                      have six grandchildren and 12 and
                                      one-half great grandchildren and
                                      it’s wonderful to be able to
                                      celebrate holidays with my family
                                      and see them all the time!”
