What our tenants have to say:

"I just love it here. We have everything we could ever need or want. I'm never lonesome; always something to do." - Leona Niehaus

"We moved here on November 12, 2002, to enjoy the worry-free way of living. We were impressed from the beginning when we toured the condominiums while they were under construction. They were so spacious and open. Everything here has been better than expected. The staff and our neighbors make this a perfect way to spend our retirement. Independent living is really great as we are free to travel and spend each day as we like. A friend of mine who also lives here asked me, 'Would you go back to your home if you had a chance to do so?' I said, 'No, you couldn't chase us out with a stick.' He said, 'We feel the same way.' Everything you need or want is here at the Ellen Kennedy Living Center." - Greg and Carol Brimeyer

"The people are all so nice, and there's something going on every day. They take good care of us. People who don't live here don't know what they're missing. We just love it here." - Clarence and Ardella Lahr
