When I was in High School we used to volunteer at a local senior living facility playing Bingo with everyone. This is the only comparison I have for the facility my Aunt was in. The one thing I distinctly remembered from the one in high school was the smell. The place my aunt was in had a pleasant smell. It was very homely. They had two separate wings, one wing was for seniors and the others was for those with terminal illnesses. The entire place had walking trails all around the building. They had beautiful gardens and ponds and just peaceful sitting areas. There was a "living room" in the center of the building. It had couches, fire place, play area for small children and an online computer for families and guests who decided to have a long term visit. This proved to be especially useful as I sometimes brought my daughters to visit and one knows in these kinds of places that children just aren't very receptive to being quiet. This living area allowed them to be the children that they are. The nurses and staff were very kind. Never made us feel like we didn't belong there. Visiting hours were constant. In the patient rooms the facility offered televisions and cd players. We were able to bring in Disney CD's for my aunt to listen to, as she was an avid Disney fan. All in all, I was very happy that my Aunt chose this place to be her final destination. They treated her very well as well as the family members and friends that visited. They took very good care of her and provided her the utmost wonderful care that she deserved.
