We visited The Chesapeake. We put a deposit on it, but now, we can’t go there because their policy is you have to be physically fit when you go in. The Chesapeake is run by the Virginia Baptist, and it is a lovely facility. However, my husband has just had surgery for hydrocephalus, and he has a shunt in his skull. If you’re living there and your health deteriorates, they’ll take care of you. You start out independent, and as you age and you require more help, they do have a place for you; that’s why they’re not taking anyone in that is already incapacitated. The Chesapeake is really a lovely place. My heart was broken when my husband said, "I can’t do it." It is where I grew up, so consequently I have friends there. One lovely thing is when you go in, you do have a pretty good-sized fee to pay down, but if your money runs out, they will take care of you. They won’t kick you out or send you somewhere else. The food is excellent.
