Fair Haven Center has bent backwards to accommodate me if I call. They immediately adjust my issues, so for a long distance situation, I am actually very happy with the care. He is old. He has Alzheimer’s, and there’s not much hope for him, but as far as the care that he has received goes, I am happy with it. The nurse staff is very responsive whenever I call. I am pretty happy that it was going on, and I am satisfied that they are doing the best that they can for him. They have actually done a conference call where I had the opportunity to speak all of this caregivers at once. They have done that a couple times with my sister and I because she is also involved in this care.
It’s an older facility; they have actually been around for a long time. My grandmother was in that many years ago. At that time, it was owned by the Methodist Church. It is now privately owned, but they are still well-maintained. There’s a lot of activity, and the place is actually pretty well set-up. It looks very attractive because it was originally a Methodist Church. They have a big hall for activities, and I was pretty impressed with the place. He was probably in rehab for about six weeks but he refused to participate, so that was part of the problem.
They did call me one time, and they wanted to know if he was aspirating. They called me to ask me if it would be alright to increase the quality of food because he seems to still be hungry afterwards, and after that since my father is a big eater, they even took that into consideration, and they addressed the issue immediately. He has a semi-private room; he is on the window side. It’s a big facility. He is in two towers; they were using a tower. It’s really two-stories tall. The room is adequate; it’s an older facility, so it’s not luxurious, but at the same time, it accommodates two beds, and they each have their own television and their own space. We decorated it while we were there for him, so it is something more personal to look at.
