He lives in Silverado in Calabasas. I don't know if I looked at it on the internet and then somebody else recommended it to me. I can't remember because he's been there almost a year. None of the facilities are perfect, so you have a lot of different complaints. But their cost has gone up 15%, and I know a lot of people are upset about that. The food is good there, and my husband likes the food. He has no complaints about the food although he doesn't talk, so he can't complain about anything. They have different activities, but my husband no longer can participate in any of the activities. They have entertainment, and they do activities with the people who can respond and get something out of it. The security is very good. They have a lot of caretakers that are there and watch all of the people. My husband wasn't one to try and get out, and he really didn't have any problem with security. I just think the people who are running Silverado has much more experience in handling Alzheimer's patients. I think sometimes they have a hard time getting the clothes back to the right people though. I think that is a problem in most nursing home facilities. The laundry doesn't always end up on the right place, and it is a continual problem that is hard to solve. He shares a room with another patient, and there is no problem with the room. It is pleasant and bright.
