Our father, Gerald (Chief) Garrison became a resident of Academy Villas in Dec 2010 shortly after they opened their doors. He was fortunate to spend the last 6 1/2 years of his life at such a warm, caring, friendly and professional community. He loved playing cards with all of his friends. Loved to eat the great meals that were prepared for the residents.
He enjoyed socializing with anyone that visited and became the official “welcome wagon” of the “home” as he liked to call it. If not for the excellent care he was given during his time there, we know he wouldn’t have been able to live to a ripe age of 91 1/2 years! Sadly, he passed away in May, but he did it the way he wanted. He was with his friends and “family” at the Academy until the end. If you, a loved one, or a friend are looking for a place to call home in your final years, Academy Villas should be your only choice. Words cannot express our gratitude for the excellent care he was given.
Thank you to the entire team.
The family of Chief Garrison
