Trezevant Manor is one of the most sought-after residential addresses for miles around, and for good reason. Its secure, central location and complete range of care options make it a desirable choice for many families. We recently got a peek inside the beautifully appointed terrace apartment of Dorothy Stevenson in The Place, the newest addition to the sprawling campus that includes independent and assisted living, memory care and Health and Rehabilitation—not to mention the salon, fitness and aquatics, art studio and resident gardens to name a few amenities offered to residents.

Dorothy, an Arkansas native, relocated to the River City two years ago following the loss of her husband. After much deliberation, she decided to downsize and head east to be near her family. She recalls finally getting settled in just days before the lockdown of 2020 and feeling so very fortunate that, despite losing her beloved, she had gained a community. 

Many of Dorothy's furnishings, including the vast collection of Western art amassed during travels, translated into her new home. She then carefully layered in new pieces with the help of equally stylish friends and family. The 1,700-square-foot apartment with a charming terrace is a modern yet comfortable menagerie of collected and carefully arranged mementos from a life that is very much still thriving. In fact, we were lucky to catch up with Dorothy before football season. The proud Razorback season ticket holder who still attends several home games had just returned from hosting her entire family of 17 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where the ages ranged from 13 to we'll never tell.
