I stayed at Caring Heights for a few months after my surgery. It was a wonderful place. While I was there, it was great. It was really good. It was a very positive experience all the way around. I was in a nursing care facility. It was in a very nice neighborhood. The grounds were very clean. The nurses were excellent. The ones that took care of me were more kind and more considerate. It was really exemplary. I moved in during December, it was all decorated for Christmas, all of residents had their doors decorated, and those who couldn't, the nursing staff would decorate their doors. They had a Christmas party where they brought in entertainment. They served shrimp, crabs, and all different kinds of wonderful treats. They even served champagne, and we had the same thing for New Year's Eve. Everyday, they always had at least three different things that you could go to, whether it was manicuring your nails, getting your hair done, or baking cookies and crackers. They had a lot of activities. I will absolutely recommend them to friends and family.
You also need to know that their rehab department was excellent. The wouldn't let you get away with "No, I'm tired today." I had three hours of occupational therapy and three hours of physical therapy every day, six days a week. They just kept you from the ground up. My roommate had had a stroke 13 years prior, had been paralyzed from waist side totally down, and could not walk. She had been in a wheelchair for 13 years. I witnessed her taking her first steps in 13 years, and it was amazing. A nurse there had been my closest friend; her mother became my roommate.
