I am currently a resident in the Personal Care Living area at Springfield Commons. Since I moved to Springfield Commons I have felt extremely welcomed by everyone and am delighted to have met so many new and special people. I truly consider these individuals part of my newly found family.  What I enjoy most is being able to continue participating in the things that have been so important to me throughout my life and to be able to share these with others. This includes putting together seasonal entertainment productions for the residents, staff and family members.  A simple song can bring back many good memories and put a smile on someone’s face.
