Meet Addie B


“The GHA let me keep my independence"

Addie B, 80, says she counts her GHA home as a blessing. “I don’t know what else I would have done,” she said, recalling the time when she came here to live in 1995. “I needed someplace to live, and I couldn’t afford a place. The GHA was a good thing for me; it let me keep my independence.”

Raised in Gainesville, Addie spent her working life as an in-home caregiver for disabled persons. She enjoyed helping others, and thinks fondly of those she spent time with in her role.
She later lived with her brother and helped him take care of his wife, who was ill. As Addie reached retirement age, she couldn’t afford to rent or buy her own home. She had few options aside from GHA.

Today, Addie continues helping neighbors when she can, taking them to the store or doctor’s appointments. Her biggest pleasure is seeing her many nephews and nieces. “I have lots of nieces and nephews, whom I love dearly.”
