Welcome to Breeze Park


Lorraine McCracken

homes for seniorsLorraine McCracken has been proving skeptics wrong her entire life. “I was born blind,” says Lorraine, who now makes her home at Breeze Park. “There are always people who believe blind people can’t learn to do things,” she says with a smile that speaks volumes. “It blows their mind.”

“I’ve always been very independent,” she says. That’s one reason Lorraine chose to retire at Breeze Park. Her apartment there offers her the greatest possible amount of independence, while still giving her easy access to a helping hand or two when she needs it. “For example,” she says, “I’m not a good cook. Everyone’s got different talents, but cooking isn’t one of mine. I ‘nuke’ everything. But here, I don’t have to worry about it—I just go to the dining room.”

“I love it here,” she says. “It’s such a warm place. Everyone’s accepted me.”

And, every once in a while, Lorraine doesn’t mind blowing a mind or two among her new neighbors. “Sometimes when I’m out and about, I’ll still hear people say, ‘Isn’t she amazing? How does she do that?'” Lorraine says with a laugh.
