We moved dad into the memory unit of Sprenger Health Care Bluffton. The facility is new, I think about a year old, so it's relatively clean and well-appointed. There are three different levels of care, assisted living, nursing, and then memory care. Once my father was put in the nursing facility, it took about three or four weeks and we realized that was not the right unit for him. He was falling and I think the level of care was not what he needed. I was determined that he should be in the memory care unit, and he's getting good care there now. We're very happy. I feel like the nurses care about his well-being. I think especially right now with the pandemic, there's certainly a shortage of caregivers in facilities like this one. You can tell the people who care and the people who don't care as much when they're stressed with extra workloads and so forth. There's also a physical therapy unit with physical therapists and so forth. And I'm very happy with the care that my father received from those people. There's a doctor on staff and all in all, I think that he's receiving good care.
I believe most of the rooms are approximately the same size. They all have a bed, their bathroom, with television, phone, and nice cabinets to store not only your clothes but other personal belongings. My father's room was nicely done. It had a nice paint job. The units are all approximately the same size, but they're appointed slightly differently, depending on whether you need assisted living, or nursing, or memory care. I know that there's another gentleman who's there for assisted living, and he has more of what you would kind of consider a residential look as opposed to my father who's in the memory care who has more of a kind of a clinical, even though there are the feng shui colors, and it's very warm and inviting. It's a little more of a hospital look.
Some entertainers come on a scheduled basis. Some play musical instruments, and there's a schedule of events that comes out every day for residents there. I can't say that we've taken advantage of it. I think my dad is in a more advanced stage of the care that he needs, so he would not benefit from entertainment, but there is entertainment there. There's even a bar in the main reception area where you do feel like you are kind of socially active there. Snacks are served and even some drinks if you qualify to have a drink. Overall, it's a happy place, as happy as a nursing facility can be. In addition to the physical therapy type of care that keeps people active, some entertainment comes into the facility.
