    A MESSAGE FROM THE VILLAGE COORDINATOR


    “I have witnessed first-hand the struggle older people face to stay in control of their lives and affairs, as they age or their circumstances change. I have seen the effect that losing their autonomy and decision-making power has on their well-being. I am so excited to be part of a new way to age. Ageing in place is the best way to remain in control of your life. To be able to age in place within a community like Amber Glades, is what people need, and in my opinion, is what people have been looking for. To be involved in a place like this, with this unique group of people and the vision we have, is a dream come true for me.”
