My mom is already in the Villages at Marion. First of all, our situation is very different because mom was the one who decided that she was ready for independent living, so that was a real gift for the family. Mom got to keep her old cat, which was required, and she is still close enough to her church to go, which was huge for her. She also gets to keep her car although she doesn’t know if she will continue using it or so, but they allowed her to park it there. And she is delighted with the food. I don’t know the staff, but she likes them. It is an older facility, it is not really fancy, but it is clean and nice. Mom is fine with all that, and she likes it. Her apartment is only about 220 sq.ft. less than what she had in her condo, so she was able to get something spacious enough to not feel claustrophobic as well. They are just really very realistic, down-to-earth people. They don’t try to sell you something they don’t really have. They have storage for $10 a month there, and they have activities, transportation, and all those bells and whistles. And we get to use the big activity room for family Christmas or Thanksgiving, which is pretty cool because we can still have Thanksgiving at mom’s, but in a big nice room that accommodates 30 to 35 people. People don’t immediately have to get rid of all of their things that they can’t fit in; they have the option of storage right there on-site.Provider Response
