Walter Story

"I've loved talking to people. I love meeting people. I've never met a person in here that I haven't enjoyed talking to."

Walter’s Story

Walter has lived at Immanuel Residences for almost five years. His move was a significant change in his life because he lived in his old home for almost 20 years. But, Immanuel Residence offered him an opportunity to live closer to friends and in a familiar community. So, the move was welcomed.

Walter is quite the socialite, and he enjoys his daily conversations with community employees and other residents. He loves that everyone in the community makes him feel comfortable and welcome each day – feelings he was missing at his old home for almost two decades.
