SOUTH BOSTON, MA — Love was in the air at Compass on the Bay on September 29th when
the Memory Support Assisted Living Community hosted a watch party to celebrate ABC’s Golden Bachelor series premiere.
Compass on the Bay residents, associates and family members gathered to watch as Gary, a 72-year-old bachelor, got to know 22 women in the hopes of finding love for the second time in his life. Residents enjoyed sparkling cider and even received a red rose of their own to mimic the Bachelor’s classic rose ceremony.
When asked “What is the most important quality when finding a partner?” here’s what residents and staff had to say…
● “Someone who listens to you” – Janice Andrews, resident
● “That feeling of true love” – Gloria Layne, resident
● “Honesty” – Donna Malcom, Lead Resident Care Associate
● “Someone I can grow with” – Dean Tricarico, Director of Community Relations
Overall, the senior community loved the message that the Golden Bachelor sends, which is, “you are never too old to find love.”
