At 94, Myrtle Peterson enjoys life at Ellendale’s Whispering Oak

Staff Writer

There often comes a time when for some reason or another as a senior citizen, you have to leave the home you have lived in for oh-so-many years, and move to a care facility. In 2012, Myrtle Peterson had just gotten out of her car when she took a fall. She ended up with a broken hip and needed some help to recover.

Fortunately, Myrtle had just gotten a call button, the type you wear around your neck, and she was able to call for help. 

At 94 and living in new territory, what does one who has lead a busy, event-filled life do? Keep on doing fun and practical things that not only keep your mind and body busy, but include friends and other residents as well.
