Stories

Welcome to Meridian Village

Millie Overholtz

I’m 87, and I’ve been independent all this time. I’ve never had any kind of illness or injury before, so what a shock it was when I fell in December and had to go into rehab.

But I’ve had wonderful help here. The staff are all good, but especially in the therapy department. At other places, they’ll tell you, “You’re going to do this.” Here, it’s more like, “Well, let’s try this.” It’s so much more friendly, and that makes a huge difference. They make you feel like you really can do it—and that’s such a big help.

I have a rather large family, and they can’t believe there’s a place like this. Oh my goodness. They have created such a homey atmosphere here, a family atmosphere.

I’ve asked my kids, “How am I ever going to get un-spoiled?”
