My photo essay is about the senior lifestyle in The Sterling. I’ve always wanted to see how the seniors would be treated there, what kind of activities they would be provided, and their kind of lifestyle there. The Sterling has been providing their care and support for senior assisted living since 1985. Every Monday and Saturday night I volunteer there and play bingo with the residents. I got to spend some time one on one with the residents, and they told me about their lives, when they came to Miami, about their family such as their grandkids. Many of them receive family visitors often but some of the residents are brought to the Sterling here in Miami for its excellent care for those families who live in places where such care can’t be provided.
Many of the resident’s family has commented that after they were put in this nursing home, because of their care and the activities they receive, their mind is much more active, and they look much happier.
