We toured Brighton Gardens of Stamford. The look and the feeling there are very comfortable. It's very clean and very safe. There are lots of rooms for privacy that are small, not like a big hole but with easy chairs, carpeted, a TV, and looking out on a window. The dining room is very nice with a carpet, tablecloths, and flowers. It's quite a lovely room. There's a grand piano, and they have entertainment. There is a recreation room and another little room with a Scrabble board.
My sister's room, the one she will take if she chooses a studio, is small but it has everything that she needs. She can fit a queen-sized bed, a nice table and lounge chair, and a TV on the wall. There's a nice window that looks out onto a woodsy area. There's a kitchenette, a large storage closet, and there's a clothes closet bathroom. About 10 steps out in the hall to the right is a small, but 3-chaired, comfortable sitting room with a table, a TV, and two nice windows. So, it has nice little places for privacy. The feeling of it was, very comfortable, and homey.
The person was very knowledgeable and gave me all the information I needed this morning. The financial person, the director, called me and we spoke for about a half-hour about what the different levels are with the progression of depression in her physical health might be, a lot of good information. They can do a virtual physical assessment because she just came out of the hospital, and she's not in the state. She's going through a traumatic life change from independence to dependence.
They did not let us try the food there because of Covid. She can talk to the chef; the menus look very good. I saw the tables while people were eating.
I did not see the physical therapy room, which overlooks a balcony. I think that's a very good thing to have in place. They are pet-friendly. From what they showed me and from what I talked about on the phone this morning, I would say that it's very doable. I really couldn't say, I just think it's very nice for someone like my sister, and that's a very individual thing.
