"Hi, I'm Nurse Jessie, and I supervise daily activities here at Holly Peaks. I gotta admit, you've got it good when you're here. You get food to eat, a bed to sleep in, a bunch of young people at your beck and call, and pills. You get so many pills. Pills are great. They can put you to sleep and send you on the greatest trips. I literally just sit in the activity room sometimes and watch the residents bug out on green jello. It's...hey, wait a second, don't put that on the brochure -"

~HOLLY PEAKS RETIREMENT HOME~
Holly Peak Retirement Home is nestled in a quiet corner of Aroostook County, Maine. While somewhat isolated from cities, Holly Peaks is a picturesque and peaceful place, where the old and feeble can live out their golden years in comfort and leisure. Our motto is "Simplicity in your Twilit Age", and since our founding in the early twentieth century, we have upheld that motto and more. Life here is quite uncomplicated, with an excellent staff ready and raring to take care of your every need and information current to the day your situation changes.
We originated as Saint Holly's Boardinghouse, a precursor to what was originally meant to be a college campus. However, as the project wore on and with the advent of the Great Depression, the plan was reworked into a retirement home, moreso to recover the costs of the venture. During our time with the elderly, we have come to hone our passion for service and care, listening to your needs and hosting the activities you want to be part of. We have beautifully sculpted grounds for you to explore, a cafeteria that is well stocked at all times, and activity rooms for every kind of event. Highly-trained nurses are on staff twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, making sure that you are as tended to as humanly possible. We also boast our own morgue and funeral parlor, ever ready to take care of your final departure should the need arise.
"Hey there, I'm Nurse Malcolm. Yes, I'm a man, and yes, I'm a nurse, and I couldn't be prouder to work at Holly Peaks. I work hard every single day to make sure your needs are taken care of. You come first. Yes, you. What's your name, what's your story? I know you've got both and I wanna hear it. I don't care if you sat and watched TV for most of it. Even that's interesting. I could literally find paint interesting! Ahahaha...oh please, for the love of God, talk to me. I never get to leave the kitchen, I'm so bored."
"I'm Miss Tina, and while I've only just begun my time as your Director, Chairwoman, and all around Big Boss, I could not be more committed to the Holly Peaks ideal. Everybody gets old someday, and everybody goes through life differently. We should be able to end it the same though - happy and content. At least, that's what I think. Everyone used to tell me, 'Miss Tina, you best get your act together and go be a super star', but I know that where I am now is where it's at, it's where I'm needed. I could only hope that somebody'll take care of me as good as we do here for you."
