There are two things that Lois Manocchia points to that stand out as a resident at Starling at Nocatee Independent Living.
"I've made great friends here - and there's plenty to do!" she said.
She explained the list goes on and on.
"I'm very involved in a lot of things. I wrote for their newsletter. I run a Mahjong group. We have 14 ladies. And exercise classes and anything I desire to join - depends on the day," she laughed.
Her son, Michael, enjoys the fact that his mom is so close, and they can visit each other as much as possible.
"We wanted to be close to each other, and my mother and father made this decision together. I just wanted them to find a place they were happy with, so they both made that decision. I wasn't involved except to make sure they felt they were making the right decision," he said. "I was just happy that they were here."
