Mary moved into Rio Terra in 2014 in order to be closer to family, which is what she holds to be the most important part of her life. Since moving in, she has discovered and rekindled many of her passions, including painting, visiting art museums and galleries, as well as knitting and crocheting. Mary’s even been invited to join the New Braunfels Art League, and participates regularly in our community Art Shows. She encourages other residents and helped them in starting to paint, and is a member of our community crocheting and knitting club.
We asked Mary how living at Rio Terra has affected her life, and she replied, “Rio Terra welcomes you from the moment you walk in the door. The stress of life rolls off your shoulders as the associates are here to help you every step of the way. It is everything and more! I never knew that places like this existed, but until you actually live here, you have no idea. I think Rio Terra stands out. It is way up there at the top. I have been to other places and talked to other people, they enjoy themselves but it is nothing compared to what we have here! Our Executive Director, Sharon Wild, is exceptional. She has numerous ideas of her own, however; at the same time is open to suggestions from others. That is the definition of a good leader”.
“What I like best is the freedom to do the things in life and enjoy everything I always wanted to do, but life kept getting in the way before. The associates are always here to help you with everything.”
Mary, Resident at Rio Terra since 2014
