This exceptional service to our residents and guests embraces the uniqueness of each individual. Discover how joyful life can be at Grand Living.
My dad is 87 and he is very independent, so none of the nearby facilities have been the right fit for him. Grand Living is an amazing place–he is so happy there and the staff and other residents have already become family. He needs some minimal care and now can get that on an “as needed” basis without having to move rooms or make a big fuss. The food is delicious and the programming recognizes that older people still want to teach, learn and challenge their minds–not just play Bingo and go to Walmart. If I could give 6 stars, I would.

JULIE MAY, RN
Director of Health and Wellness
Julie knew from a young age she wanted to be a nurse and found her passion in working with seniors. Within Julie’s career she had the honor to care for the first woman to graduate from Harvard, the doctor who developed a valve for heart transplant surgery, and many more incredible people. Julie loves seeing beyond the aches and pains, decreased mobility and any other issues to meet the real person through their memories, stories and pictures. Julie graduated from the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) in 1987, moved to Texas working in the hospital setting and migrated to beautiful Florida where she found herself inspired by her work in senior living environments.
I have a picture of myself at 4 years old, playing nurse. I knew then and even more now that nursing is more than a career, it is my calling and I have loved every moment of it.
