My mother had toured Prestige Senior Living at Mira Loma before she had gotten to the point that she really need it, so she decided to go with this place because she's familiar with it already. The price wasn't too high, from what we were looking for.
She has her own apartment with a kitchenette, a microwave, a sink, and a refrigerator. She has a hospital bed, but the room is still pretty big, and she has furniture. The bathroom is nice; you can roll the wheelchair into the shower, and it has bars. Everything is set up to be OK. It's just one room, but it's more than enough for her. It may be crowded for a 2-person because I think it's designed for only one.
I see they have a calendar for things. They have people come in to entertain, like singers and people who play music, special events of monthly themes, regular things like bingo, poker, and other games. They may also go shopping, to Wal-Mart, or to pick a place for lunch or dinner. My mom is not an activity person, but she participates in entertainment, the ones where you just sit and do nothing.
One thing that I would like to emphasize is the staff that takes care of my mother is VERY good. They're very nice and helpful. But they could use a little bit more. I can see they're always struggling; it seems they just don't have quite enough people. I feel bad for them because they always work very hard. As far as I'm also a little worried about security, I think they should have cameras for the front door when you walk in. When you go in at certain times, you call and they will open the door for you; somebody always comes when you call. I don't feel that's an issue as far as anything is going on, but I'll feel better if they have cameras. Other than that, I think its fine.
