As the population of the country grows in age, there seems to be a great need for assisted living facilities. I visited Southern Manor in Fayetteville, TN, because my parents are in their 80's, and some day my family may need this assisted living facility. We were quit amazed and welcoming this place was from the time we walked through the front entrance. Beautiful decor greeted us as well as an employee. We explained why we were there, and the employee had no hesitation on our request to a tour. As we walked through the assisted living facility, we recognized familar faces we had seen when we were younger, some of them even spoke to us. The rooms are very pleasing to the eye, and each person living there as the right to bring in a small refrigerator, and keep food in their rooms. Also, if the resident has a driver's license, they are able to leave and return.The administrator of the facility was very gracious to us and we left with a satisfied feeling.Southern Manor is in our hometown, and it would be wonderful if we can keep our parents in the same facility. My family only hopes that a room is available when one or both of our parents need it.
