When my family made the decision to put my grandma into the Bishop Gadsden assisted living facility in 2009, it was a rough time for me. Unfortunately, the words "assisted living" brought to mind many negative mental images of sad elderly people locked away in a building, forgotten by their family and friends. I also had many concerns. Would the staff treat my grandma well? Would she enjoy the food? Would she get along with the other residents? Almost three years later, I'm proud to say that I was completely wrong about the bishop Gadsden assisted living facility. From the first day we brought my grandma there, the staff have been wonderful and have conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism and respect. In addition, there are many daily activities so that all the residents can get to know each other, and my grandma has a pretty full social calendar! Coming to visit is always a pleasure too, as the staff at Bishop Gadsden have made it clear that we can visit any time we want. Overall, I'm happy to say that Bishop Gadsden has surpassed my expectations and that I feel my grandma is in great hands there.
