STILL LOVING LIFE: AMICA MATURE LIFESTYLES RON JOCSAK 2010 Amica… derived from the Latin word amicus, means Friend. Amica Mature Lifestyles Inc. is dedicated to creating and sustaining superior retirement residences that enrich the quality of life for seniors. Amica communities are NOT traditional “senior homes”. Every Amica Wellness and Vitality™ community is unique, each having it’s own charm and character. Each is situated in safe, pleasant, and accessible surrounding neighborhoods for discerning seniors who call Amica their home. My parents and our family chose Amica at Erin Mills™ as their new home and were immediately embraced by the home’s community of residents and the professionals in this service-rich environment. Having spent considerable time in the home, one very important aspect of this community became obvious. The friendliness amongst the residents and staff were wonderful, but most were having fun, often lots of fun! This continues today and residents' families when visiting are equally welcome in this lovely atmosphere. In early 2010, I approached the management at Amica at Erin Mills™ with an idea to photograph my folks and asked them to invite some of their friends if they so desired. Management agreed to this arrangement and asked to review the images for potential future marketing. On the day of the shoot, the only prerequisite I gave each sitter was that I would not take any images unless they were having fun. Word spread quickly and a long lineup soon followed. Enclosed here are some of the imagery I see all the time when visiting my folks.
