35 years ago, Lloyd and Marion met at a neighborhood dance in Chicago. Both from Belize, a small country in Central America, they shared common cultural interest and it didn’t take long before they got married. They spent most of their life in Chicago, but in their later years decided to move to Mississippi for retirement. However, their retirement destination became very uncomfortable, and Lloyd and Marion became very ill. So, their children moved them back to Chicago, and they found a home at GreenCastle of Morgan Park & Beverly.
The couple is very comfortable now. They have made friends, and Marion often teaches other residents how to cook authentic Belizean recipes in the community kitchen. They have the quality of life that they wanted in retirement, and they’re very happy.
When our residents are well, they are more engaged and happy parents and grandparents, and they contribute to the welfare of their greater communities.
