This month’s Melody Living independent living featured resident is George Elliot! We are so excited to welcome George to our Lake in the Hills senior community and for you to learn more about his life.
George Elliott was born and raised in Glasgow Scotland. He has a large family consisting of four sons, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
George worked as an electrical engineer as well as a salesman for machine tools. While he never served in the military, his father was in the Highland Light Infantry and was stationed in France during World War II.
Some of George’s favorite hobbies are playing dominoes, pool, and golf. He hasn’t been golfing in a while, but says he now enjoys the “19th Hole.” George's favorite holiday would have to be New Year's Eve in Scotland because of the lively and wild atmosphere.
He says his special talent is just being his true genuine self. George has traveled all over Europe, South Africa, and the U.S. Going back to Scotland is his dream destination. George speaks English as well as a bit of Gaelic, but he would like to become more fluent. George’s greatest accomplishment has been being a father.
George has lived in Lake in the Hills for several years after trying other senior living facilities. He fell in love with our new independent living community, great staff, and never looked back. Some of his favorite activities and amenities at Melody Living are happy hours, dime bingo, and karaoke night.
George’s advice to others is, “Live every day of your life because you only die once, and as always to my friends, Scotland forever.”
We hope you join us and discover a Life in Harmony™ like George has with Melody Living independent living in Lake in the Hills. To learn more, visit our contact page to schedule a tour or give us a call at 847.851.4000.
