"I came here to experience bliss, but I ended up also getting blessed"
How did you decide on where to live after retirement?
"To achieve something you will have to leave everything. At the top of my career I stopped everything and said to myself that I’ve had enough of this busy life and now I’d like to go somewhere that gives peace to my mind and soul. Then, one fine day I came to know of this concept of retirement living at Bless from one of my friends and decided to go take a look at it. That’s how I came to know about Bless."
What do you think of the retirement lifestyle at Bless?
"Bless has a very positive and peaceful atmosphere. I’m having a good time and I’m able to achieve my goals without any distraction."

What according to you makes Bless a good retirement place to settle down in?
"Excellent. It is by far the best option for seniors. Living here doesn’t make me feel like I am at a retirement home; it feels more like a resort."
What has been your experience been with Bless Retirement Living so far?
"It is a very beautiful environment. Since it provides a ‘right to live’ option, it makes it more affordable for residents. The food is perfect for my age and is in accordance to my medical preferences. The staff members provide different levels of care as per our needs, while being reliable and affectionate. Last but not least, the commitment of the management to this institution is absolutely remarkable. They are led by good ethical principles and excellent motives."
"O wanderer, seek no more. Come rest in the Oasis of Bless Retirement Living."
What made Bless the best option among all the other retirement areas you visited?
"I had the privilege of being born into a devout Catholic family in Kochi. Childhood memories are filled with the picturesque beauty of Kerala, God’s own country. After decades of life in the US a deep desire to return to ancestral roots occupied my time and attention.
My search for a retirement community that would meet personal desires and wants failed to provide a positive outcome. Just before a recent trip to Kerala I searched the Web for any new developments. Bless Retirement Living in Kerala caught my attention. With much scepticism and after a few emails and a phone call to Mrs. Lija Gijo, the Executive Director of the facility, I scheduled an appointment for a site visit.
The site visit surpassed my expectations. It was evident that much research and planning had been put into the implementation of the project. My brief stay wiped away any doubts and solidified my decision to move to Bless Retirement Living. I am confident that this is the right decision for me. The facility offers independent living with the option for assisted living and nursing care when needed. The apartments are senior friendly with wheelchair accessibility everywhere. The meals are prepared on site with fresh produce and ingredients. The landscape is green and lush. The environment is peaceful and relaxing. The residents who have moved in are gracious and welcoming.
I am thankful to Mrs. Lija Gijo, Mr. Gijo Antony and Mr. Babu Joseph who are the core brains of the project. I know that Bless Retirement Living in Kerala will provide a comfortable and peaceful place to live during my Golden years. I am confident that anyone who ventures to join this community will find meaningful ways to enrich life."

What is it like to live in retirement at Bless?
"When I first took my children to visit the premises, we all experienced a certain bliss here. Soon after, I moved into Bless because my heart told me this was my new home.
After living here for over four months, when I am sitting here to write about my experience, all I can say is that this place was created for me by my creator.
The facilities are modern, superior and well planned for elderly living. I’m very comfortable and happy with my stay. But more than the facilities, it is the atmosphere at Bless that I am thoroughly enjoying. Here, I am in harmony with the people and the things around me. I thank god for making it happen through the Bless team."
