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!”
