Devastated by a recent fall for my beautiful, independent Mom, we were overwhelmed with the care she "received" in another state and soon faced moving her here from Florida. After months of rehab we were told on Christmas Eve that her last covered day would be Saturday, December 27 and that the only option for her would be long term care. While we appealed that decision, we arranged to tour several facilities on Friday, December 26, but found that only one, Broadmore, would be able to assess my Mom on 12/26 and before 12/29 for that matter. Well, that must've been God sent because instantly we felt that this should be her new home - where individuals had a place to call home with dignity, community, and caring. My Mom has suffered significant physical and mental decline since autumn 2014 and we realize that she will never be the same. However, without the caring staff and programs at Broadmore, we are certain that we wouldn't have celebrated Mother's Day 2015 with her, played bingo together, got to see her great granddaughter push her in her wheelchair, heard her sing happy birthday to me, and even enjoy the red wine SHE requests at happy hour. My heart is filled with joy every time I see her and hear her call my name. I will always be grateful for Broadmore for giving me this time with my Mom.
