I’m on a waiting list at Glenmoore Gracious Retirement Living. I went up there and had lunch. I would say it was good restaurant food. There were 4 or 5 selections. It was very homey, and the people I sat with at the table were very pleasant. It is brand new. It has only been open now for less than 2 years. It’s in a fairly nice residential area. Over and all, this is the one I’ve selected.
Our neighbor has been there for over a year, and she talks very highly of it. It’s near -- about a mile and a half away from where I’m living now. It’s in my neighborhood, so I know all the places around there. There are restaurants that I eat within a mile up there. Some of them are even right across the street. Kaiser Sunnyside hospital is less than a mile away, and that’s my hospital, so it’s very convenient.
The 1-bedroom units have balconies or patios. They have separate bedrooms, walk-in showers, and little kitchens. They had a full size refrigerator, no ovens, but a hot plate. When somebody moves out, you have to wait 2 weeks before anybody else can move in because they’ll completely redo the whole thing. They’ll replace the carpet, and they’ll repaint everything.
