Jim has MS, and although he hated to give up the "independence" of living in his own apartment, he knew that he just wasn't able to function on his own any longer. As his principal care giver, I am very much relieved that he now has the care he needs to function, and that the staff by and large respects his autonomy and treats him with care and respect. I feel that he is doing better in this environment than when he was in his own apartment. The residents seem to be members of a community rather than inmates at an institution.
My uncle moved in there about 6 months ago. The staff was very helpful in transitioning him into the facility. The facility has just been renovated and it looks great. The food is really good and they allow custom orders.
Clean and we'll run. Obviously my mother would rather be at home but she is much safer here and has even made a few good friends. Denise and Suzette have been great.
