Personal Commentary

I should like to say to my personal friends and colleagues that I came to the Westmont Retirement Community by choice. My son suggested it was time to consider choosing such a place while I could make my own choice, lest he have to make it for me, which I wouldn't like. So we investigated the retirement homes in the San Jose area and of them all, I chose the Westmont which lives up to its name‑­"a community for gracious living."

The Westmont has several desirable features‑‑there is no "buy in"‑‑only an initial deposit and the monthly rent for board and lodging. It is a most pleasant place‑‑the ambience is for me always good. I recommend it highly.
