I am living in Edenton. It is a wonderful place to live. It is an assisted living and they have independent living apartment, and some Alzheimer's/dementia areas and rooms. I am in one of the independent living's two-bedroom apartments. It has one bedroom on each side and two entrances. I think it was originally made out so that if you have a caregiver who is living with you, they can utilize one of the bedrooms. It can also be for couples. I do have a full kitchen -- they just remodeled it last year. I have a dishwasher and wood laminated floors in the kitchen. I have a refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, granite countertop and its very nice. I have a living room in the center and two full baths a well and they are handicap accessible with bars. It doesn't have a lot of closet space, but I have a storage unit. It is small but its fine for me. There are also some studio apartments and town house units with one bedroom upstairs.They have a lifeline that you can ring if you need assistance. They also have outlets for telephone. The director is absolutely fabulous. The staff is wonderful. They have assisted aides who take the people around in their wheelchairs if they need to go to some of the events. It helps the people to go out. I can't say enough about them and I don't utilize a lot of their services because I am in the independent living. They have 24-hour security. They have a restaurant and many people eat there. You can have three meals a day in the restaurant if you desire. However, I don't eat there because I cook my own meal.
They have a nice calendar of events every month for people to take advantage of. They have activities at Frederick Community College where they go out to some concerts or things out there. They take people who want to go to the baseball team and outings. They have bus transportation for the residents if someone who doesn't drive needs transportation. They have their own beauty shops and it is very self-contained, if you want it to be. They have a small chapel in the restaurant building and they have services there on Sunday afternoon. They have bingo in what they call the manor house, which is the main building. They have trivia and exercise classes for seniors. I take advantage of those. There are a group of people who are pretty active and a lot of them go to the exercise class that I go to, and we also have a chorus for men and women who like to sing. It can be as homey and unhomey as you want it to be. It depends on what you participate in and do. It has a very friendly atmosphere and the people are wonderful. I will recommend it to seniors who are independent but I think they also have an outstanding care in the assisted living area and you have rehab services available in the campus as well.
