About 15 years ago, my Mother left our home in Brevard County and headed to Vero Beach. She has been so happy here, and has become quite the social butterfly is this tight knit community. After visiting her for a number of years, both of my sisters decided Vero Beach was a great place to live.

They each packed up their homes, waved goodbye to friends and family and now they live in Vero. In face they both now live in the same community, Lexington Place. For the time being, I am staying with my Mom as her primary caregiver at Palms of Vero.

I have lived in Brevard County for most of my adult life, but I must say that I am enjoying my time here in Vero Beach.  Because I am primary caregiver for my Mom, I haven’t had much free time to explore Vero. But over time I am hoping to learn more about the area.

I do know they have a great performing arts center, lovely parks, and some beautiful beaches. Who knows, perhaps one day I, too will move to Vero Beach!
