At Harrogate, located in Lakewood, family is everywhere.

Marissa, a housekeeping employee, has a daughter who is a supervisor in food service.

Shawna in dining has a mother, Sharon, who works in home care, and an aunt, Delores, who works in the health center.

Marilou, an RN, and her LPN spouse, Noli, both work there.

Activities Director Sue's daughter has been a lifeguard at the community pool.
