My Aunt will be moving into Maple Vista. What I liked about it is that it has three meals a day and housekeeping once a week. It has an emergency medical alert pen, and it's got laundry onsite. It has a hair facility on site. They have activities and transportation. Most important for my aunt, she wanted to have pets; there was a one-time pet fee, so that was good for her. The location is really good because I'm only like 12 miles away.
The staff was very helpful, her name's Crystal; she is the office manager. The rooms are small, but they're livable. They got everything she needs in there. It's got 1-bedroom, a little living room, a little kitchen, and a bath.
The kitchen is right up the dining area. It's located right in the center of the facility. They've got the rooms on each side of the dining area so that the people that live there can come from all directions. The sidewalks have a cover over the top of them. Rain can get in there somewhat, if the rain comes in and it gets blown in there. But there's a covering over the walkway so that when they walk from their rooms to the dining room, they should not get wet. The dining room is nice. It's on the right-hand side, right off the kitchen, and then on the left-hand side, there's a little sitting room in between. Also, on the left-hand side is a big meeting room where they do activities and stuff like that. It looks like everything's well in order.
They have a little community garden. She has everything she needs, and there's going to be a lot of people around there. She'll have community, food, care, and transportation, you can't ask for much more. There's a Catholic church out front, too. You could walk to the church if you wanted to join their church.
I met the kitchen gentleman, and he's the one that went to get me a packet on Saturday. Then Crystal's been excellent, we've been communicating back and forth. I don't think it's landscaped to the hilt or anything, but it's taken care of pretty well.
So far, we're pretty happy. We'll see how she does. She's going to be very happy; she wants her own place really bad, and I think this is just ideal for her.
