I visited this facility

We decided to visit Towne Centre Retirement Community since it is relatively close to our aunt's medical facility, St. Mary's. We like the area a lot "“ and there are plenty of affordable accommodations for family members who visit from out of town. We liked the vibe "“ it was friendly and casual, yet the business of taking care of those who needed it was being attended to. They have a number of options available, from spacious apartments, which our aunt is interested in "“ to smaller spaces that are easier to manage. Of course, there is plenty of staff to take care of basic needs and cleaning, etc., so even if you have a larger space, it should work out okay. Some of the residents, we were told, prefer a smaller dwelling. All of the areas were pleasant to be in and we could see that the residents thought so, too. The activites ranged from board games, to discussions, private reading and watching film and TV "“ some people were also using computers. The staff is well-versed at taking care of a variety of types of people, from those who are not ambulatory "“ to people who have memory issues. Our aunt is in the early stages of dementia "“ it comes and goes "“ so she needs to live in a place that can handle this. The grounds were spacious and well tended. The indoor areas were all clean and bright. There is plenty of sunlight so that they do not need to use lighting when it is sunny outside. This is true for many of the dwelling spaces, as well. Our aunt likes to make artwork, so the lighting is really appreciated. The activities they plan regularly include everything from visiting local restaurant favorites, the public library and movies "“ to day trips to nearby Chicago. They have planned exercise classes "“ but also offer residents to work out any time they wish. We liked that they encourage exercise "“ a people with early dementia can be forgetful. We are glad we took the time to look at this facility and it is in the running as one of the better ones we visited so far.
