My mother lives at a place called Mountain View Gardens. We moved her in the week before Thanksgiving. You can bring your own nursing assistant in. They don't have 24-hour nurses on-staff or anything like that. The food proportions are great for seniors. They don't overfeed them. They always get three choices on the meals. They get housekeeping once a week. They will provide the sheets and towels for you and wash them. They immediately called me the other day when my mother yelled, something she has never done before. They actually watch the people if they do something out of character. If somebody doesn't show up for a meal, they'll have somebody check on them. They are a very caring community. They have their own bus if you have a doctor's appointment. They play bingo, cards, movies in the evening, the ladies sew, they set up the sewing machine for them, and they quilt. To me, it's an ideal place; in fact one of the teachers I used to work with retired and moved in there.
