I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mom is in Thelen Gardens. It is an assisted living, but they also have a hospice license. The staff is wonderful. The patients have been there long term. One man has been there six years, and another one has been there for three years. The people that work there have been there a long time, which to me says a lot; it means that's a good place to work. They only have six beds, and there are three caregivers. So, there are always at least two people there 24 hours a day.
It is a residential home. It is like a home that you live in. The master bedroom is a shared bedroom, and they have three other bedrooms. It is like they live in a family. So, it is like a four bedroom house and caregivers stay there. The kitchen is there, and the family room is there. So, it is not like they are living in a facility. It is like they are living in a home, and my mother doesn't want to leave. I even ask her if she wants to go home; she loves it. The food is very good. They cook home cooked meals all the time. They ask people if they want a snack. They have a little karaoke. This place specializes in memory care. So, two of the people there have Alzheimer's, and they don't really communicate. So, the ladies there love my mother because she never shuts up, and she's kind of funny. Because it is a memory care, they are not really active so they do watch TV, sometimes they sing songs, sometimes they go for walks, but the two men that are there they had strokes. They don't speak, and they don't communicate.
The ladies will sit and talk to my mom. They make pizza at night and watch a movie. If there are people there that are more active, my mom sits there with them. They bring laundry, and they fold the laundry with her. They just interact with her. This is kind of a hard place to have a lot of activities because these people have issues with memory. So, as long as they can sit and play cards. I mean if the people can, they will. They have bingo and things like that. I am so glad that I found this place. My mom has been there since October, and she has not been better. She is so much better than when I am taking care of her.
