Frasers Pleased With Decision to Move to United Helpers ISL

Frasers Pleased With Decision to Move to United Helpers ISL

CANTON – Like many couples or individuals moving into United Helpers Independent Senior Living, Bob and Betty Fraser said it was their children who encouraged them to move into United Helpers Independent Senior Living (ISL).

Mr. Fraser said that while he and his wife are both happy with the decision now, Mrs. Fraser took a little more convincing.

“The decision to move out of your family home is a big one,” she said. “We had lived there for more than 40 years.”

Bob and Betty Fraser share a moment in their apartment at United Helpers Independent Senior Living. Mr. and Mrs. Fraser recently celebrated their 70th anniversary, and are seen here looking through a memory book together.

However, after the couple, who recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary, moved to the ISL, they said it didn’t take them long to realize they had made the right decision.

“It’s nice to be in a place like this where we don’t have to worry about anything,” Mr. Fraser said. “Plus, being a frugal Scotsman I enjoy having everything taken care of, and not having to worry about taxes anymore.”

Mrs. Fraser said she was surprised at how many people they knew who were already living there once they moved in. As for the people they didn’t know, she said it didn’t take them long to meet people and make some new friends.

Mr. Fraser, who spent time on the United Helpers Management Company Board of Directors in the 1980’s and early 90’s said he can remember discussions about building what was then known as Partridge Knoll.

Ironically, he said he can also recall his wife telling former ISL Community Manager Cindy Lawrence that she didn’t think they would ever live there. She told them they may one day be surprised. Turns out she was right. Mrs. Lawrence retired in 2021.

United Helpers Independent Senior Living offers a variety of apartment styles, with both one and two-bedroom units available. Click here to take a virtual tour.
