"This is my home and it’s a blessing to be here."

Nelda’s Story

“This is my home and it’s a blessing to be here.” That is what Nelda has said to anyone that asks for over 20 years during her time at Bethel Greencastle South. Being a part of a community is very important to her, and living among others has helped her stay physically and mentally active. She spends a large amount of time in fellowship with other residents during weekly bible studies and daily coffee hour chats. Nelda also finds time to care for and display her pet bird, Mickey.

Nelda plans to live at Bethel Greencastle South for the rest of her life. Her three children praise the life that Embrace Living Communities has been able to provide their mother in her later years, and when they visit, they feel at home as well.
