“This is the third senior building I’ve lived in. None of the others had all the services and activities offered at Joshua Arms. It’s really handy to have social services help us with Medicare and other issues. The presentations about health, nutrition and practical living tips are very useful to me. I go to all the exercise classes – I go to practically everything. It was really fantastic when I was encouraged to put together our choir. Joshua Arms lets me relax and have fun in my Golden Years.”
