Life at Colony

Colony III residents, standing left to right, are Judy Farrell and Doris Conlon, and sitting is Jean Danielson They are enjoying a Valentine’s Day gathering with cake, hot chocolate, games, songs, and friends.

As a special Valentine’s event at Colony III, the Worcester State Women’s Lacrosse team came bearing gift bags of chocolates, lollipops, and hand-made greeting cards to share with the residents. A speed-dating format was used with small groups of the team rotating around the dining room visiting with the residents. The event culminated in the residents passing the mic sharing with the team their thoughts about being an older adult! Great fun was had by all!

Meet Michael Mitchell! Michael has been part of the Colony family since 2015 when he moved into Colony III. However, he remembers when the land that Colony I, II, and III are on had cows roaming free on the last working farm in the area. When Michael needed overnight assistance, he moved into a two-bedroom apartment at Colony IV so his aide could sleep in a bed. Every Thursday, Michael returns to Colony III to lead a group in prayer. He also uses the trip to see friends and former neighbors.
