When my mom’s dementia got to the point that she could no longer live alone – my sister and I were faced with the daunting challenge of choosing an assisted living facility for her. The weight of choosing the right place and the right people to care for her may be one of the most important decisions I’ve ever made.
Six months later – I am writing to say with incredible gratitude and relief – thank you. Thank you for offering such a beautiful facility filled with so many caring people. Thank you for caring not only for my mom – but also for us as we struggle to handle her new normal.
The Commons has been so good for her – both her body and her spirit! We knew she wasn’t eating as well as she should but she probably put on 10 lbs of healthy weight after arriving and she still raves about the meals offered. She loves all the social activities and all her new friends as well.
You’ve truly become our partners in caring for her , which is an incredible gift. Whether it was regulating her meds, doing an x-ray right in her room after she fell or helping us access outside providers who would deliver services right there in the building – you have been a Godsend.
I can’t thank you enough for helping us make suer that this last chapter of our moms’ life is as rich and meaningful as it can be and that every day we know she is safe and being cared for by skilled, knowledgeable and loving people.
Anyone that might be wondering if The Commons on Marice is right for a parent t or loved one can be confident that they couldn’t make a better choice.
Again – thank you for everything.
