I’m delighted that my mother moved from upstate New York to Bloomington five years ago! At Bell Trace, she found a welcoming community, a responsive and caring staff, and a huge selection of creative and interesting activities to keep her body and mind nimble. Who knew my mother would have the opportunity to take up ukulele in her eightis?
