Claire JOCHMANS – Azalées’ Resident

“Before I retired, I was a schoolteacher. I lived in Zaire.

I think a successful life it is all about parents, they shall understand each other and understand their children’s aspirations. My father was a superintendent. He provided me important values : order, punctuality and sense of duty.

I have decided to come for a short-term stay. In this way, I can see if I can plan to come for a permanent stay. I am here since the beginning of this month. I feel at home there. I would gladly recommand this home, the staff members are pleasant, attentive, and always tell us kind words.

We leave a “home” to come here. We gladly do it but we have to feel good. I particulary appreciate the architectural quality of Azalées, its fitting and its tasteful decoration. An other important thing is I feel secured here.”

Constant VAN WEVERBEUGH – Azalées’ Resident

« I was involved in municipal politics before. I have always worked a lot and I have never been married.

I have known the group for 7 years. Before I came in the Azalées’ Retirement Home, I was in the Heysel one. As I have no family, I am alone, but I always see people here. It is such a wonderful place ! It is like a hotel but we can come with our own furnitures.

I really enjoy to live here, meals are excellent, the staff members are caring and respectful. As I am autonomous, my personal time is according to my wishes, and sometimes I assist to the activities suggested by the ergotherapist. I am just felling good. »

Riet MAES – Azalées’ Resident

“I have spent a lot of time to study, I loved doing that. I read modern languages at university, learnt how to cook, and studied homeopathy for 6 years.  I worked as a nurse in a hospital.

The most important thing in life is to be happy and expect nothing from anybody, do what you want. I had a happy youth though I spent 10 years with the Sisters. I was a bit of rebel at that time.

I have decided to come at the Azalées Rest and Care Home when the establishment opened. I am happy here, I want to stay here for the rest of my life.  I often invite my friends, neighbours, and family to come here and note the quality of the house.”
