Patricia and Rita: "A Market Right Here at Home"

Brookdale is all about community, and residents can always count on each other for a little pick-me-up. Take Patricia Clark and Rita Ldesrosiers, for example. Together, they run the Market Place at their Brookdale community, a one-stop-shop for any small household things fellow residents may need. 

“We’re all like family,” Clark shares. “And family is important, so we try to take care of one another as best we can.”

That includes serving up free coffee and fresh cookies with a side of friendly conversation. Both women agree that being able to provide this service makes them happy and gives them a sense of purpose. 

“We enjoy it,” Clark says. “That’s why we’re here, because we enjoy what we do. We go above and beyond, and we’re happy with what we do.”
