My kids tell me all the time how happy and grateful they are that we found Bruyere Gardens. We've had a tough winter this year, but me and my kids know I'm in a well-cared-for and safe place. And there's so much to do." Rita L. (left above)

People watch over you, if something is wrong, Fernando and Paula are so helpful. If we need anything. We owned our home two streets down and would attend mass all the time (at the D'Youville Chapel).
