My great grandmother moved into the Masonic Home of Virginia at the age of 96. She was still very active, and this home accommodated her for the last ten years of her life. Often when I came to visit I would find her shooting pool, or walking around the large estate with other residents. The cafeteria served quality, nutritious food and were happy to accommodate visitors. The nursing staff were kind, attentive, and respectful without fail, and I sincerely appreciate the care they provided my grandmother. Her room was modest, but spacious enough, and quite ideal once her eyesight succumbed to glaucoma and macular degeneration. I never had to worry about her when she stayed there, and always found her in great spirits. The facility was quiet, although they had multiple activities, church services, and everyday living accommodations to keep the residents busy. The facility was also clean, and obviously well cared for. It was lovely to visit her as well as get to know the other residents. It was good for my grandmother to live there, as it kept her active for years, and kept her from being lonely.
