Belle Meade has a beautiful campus. It is only 10 miles from my house, so it would be an easy move. It’s by my daughter. I have all my doctors here. The hospital here is fabulous. I’ve been a patient twice, and I had the best care I could possibly want.
I had a lunch in their casual dining room a week ago with the salesperson. At that time, I had quiche and soup, and both were absolutely fabulous. When you go to the main dining room, you have to make reservations, you have to wear nice clothes, and their service is superb. We came in at 5:30 pm. We had finished eating by 6:30 pm, so we got waited on immediately. I had short ribs and mashed potatoes and so much broccoli. It was steamed perfectly. And I had an out-of-this-world dessert. They had wine with it, or you could have a mixed drink if you wanted.
They have the rooms from 1-bedroom to 3-bedroom. They had an apartment, which is a lot cheaper than getting a cottage. The cottages always cost more. They’re bigger, and the price is always according to sq. ft. I can take my four cats into an apartment. They have a whole building which is for people with pets. They have bingo, bridge, tai chi, and they have a balance class of some sort. There is a group that goes to the symphony when it’s here, which is in the winter time. They have a swimming exercise class of some sort.
