Annie’s Peaceful Haven at Center Communities of Brookline, an HSL Senior Living Community

Center Communities of Brookline resident Annie Burrows in her home.

Center Communities of Brookline resident Annie Burrows, age ninety-eight, has found a “peaceful haven” at CCB. Moving to CCB was a wish of her late husband of sixty-six years, an avid golfer, who wanted to live in Brookline. Since his passing, Annie has embraced every facet of life at CCB. Once a chronic non-exerciser, Annie wakes early each morning and heads off to the CCB gym. Her life is filled with opportunities for enrichment. “I’m able to do things alone that I didn’t know I could do,” she says. “The happiest years of my life were spent in this place.”

We had the pleasure of interviewing Annie for a video we screened at our EngAGE event held last October. Watch below and hear directly from Annie what living at CCB has meant to her.
