I've been here at Hilton East Assisted Living for seven years now, and I love it here. I like the staff, and I like some of the aides. The nurses, the med techs, and the ones that give you your lotion and stuff or the treatment techs are great. Their activities are good. The food is sometimes OK, sometimes not. Everything's fine here except we had to be quarantined in our rooms for a while because we had some Covid cases here. Other than that, I love it here.
We play bingo, and at night we play Rummy. You can't do much and you can't go outside because it's so cold from raining. In the summer, we used to have a lot of activities outside, but now, we really don't have a lot. A lot of people do arts and crafts, and we play beanbag toss, which I love. My room is fine, and I have a roommate.
We have a hairdresser, and I just got my hair done today. She's here on Mondays and Thursdays, and we didn't have one for quite a while because of Covid. We had to wait for the State to OK her to come back, so now she's back and everything's great. We used to have entertainment every Friday with snacks, but due to Covid, we don't have it anymore. Every Tuesday, we had Catholic mass where the priest would come sometimes, but when the Covid hit, everything stopped.
I think it's a nice place to live, and I like it. It's worth the money, and a lot of people come here. I'm also a resident ambassador. You welcome the new people that come in, show them around, and sit with them if you have to because sometimes, people will come in here that are so scared. I loved it the first night I was here. We also have a gazebo outside where we can smoke.
