I went through all the medical things and all of the interviews at Edgewater Pointe. But they were very nice about it, and I was comfortable with it. However at the very end, they gave me something that I thought was nasty. A registered nurse came in and said, “I’m going to ask you some questions and ask you to do some things,” and that went nicely. And then at the end, she said to me, “Here’s a paper and a pencil. Can you make a circle? I want you to put numbers around the circle.” So I started to write 1,2,3,4, and we came out of there. And then, shespoke with the director of the program and came out and said, “I’m so sorry, but we can’t accept you here at Edgewater.” I asked why, and she said, “Well, the reason is that you were supposed toput a 1 at the top, 15 a quarter of the way around, the number 30 at the bottom, then 45, and then back to 1 again. Well, I had no idea that that’s what she wanted. She just said put numbers around the circle.
The manager of the entire place and I got to be friendly. It was a nice thing and she said, “I really wish you can stay here but I have to abide by what the nurse said, and they said you can’t be here because you did the wrong thing with the numbers.” That was horrible. And also my home where I live now is directly across the street and one city block from my family, so it would have been very nice for my family and I to be a 10-minute walk apart; it would have been terrific. I was ready to give them the deposit immediately and I was willing to do anything because it’s across the street and I thought it would be fine. I would not recommend them because one particular person, who thinks that she is that important, was able to keep me out of there. Edgewater was OK. It was clean. They were doing some renovations and there were a lot of people putting down flooring and hanging up curtains and things, except that they allowed that one nurse who said that I didn’t think that the numbers would be from a clock, so I had to walk out of there. I think the price is too high, even if it was $5, for the way I was treated. So I would never recommend it to anyone.
