I chose and moved my father into the Prestige Senior Living Rosemont in Yelm. He's been there a week and so far, so good. They really like him. Everything's going great. We're in constant communication; we text all the time. I actually just texted them a little bit ago. We talk all the time, and I see them because I'm there all the time. I am very impressed with their care and their immediate response. If I have any questions or concerns, or if he needs anything, everything's always immediate.
They were very kind when he moved in. They made sure they were available while we were moving him in. They constantly reached out to make sure that he has what he needs because he gets tired easily and sleeps a lot on some days. They'll ask him if he wants something to eat and bring it to him. They were very kind to me on move-in day and the day after, making sure that we had everything we needed. It's very clean. I'm really liking it. I told them that I wanted to be put on the waiting list because it's that nice. I would love to be at a place where I didn't have to do anything.
He is able to be on the first level of care. He's still able to function independently. He's on the independent side and so far, so good. I am constantly there and do his meds and wash his laundry. He doesn't have to have anybody do his meds, nobody has to feed him, and nobody has to do anything. He's independent, he walks and talks, but he's forgetful and shows signs of dementia. But he isn't bad enough to be in memory care. He's doing OK there.
They offered to take him places, but they can only take so many people at a time into town. Every Friday night, they have live music, and he went to meet other residents. They are having a video singing contest that he said he might enter. They'll put notes by his door and let him know what they're doing, and if he wants to come down he can. He's on the first floor, and he loves the fact that he can see birds. He's met some people in the dining area when he goes for dinner. It's very good food. They keep the place up very nicely. I was very impressed with the price, the staff, and the upkeep of their facility. It's very well done, very well maintained, and the staff is excellent. One of the staff members is related to one of my dad's best friends, and she always goes and talks to him, checking on him to make sure he's doing OK.
They're such a great facility, and I like that they're not huge. This place is more personable. They show more kindness and empathy and don't treat them as another person renting a room. They treat them as you'd expect your parents to be treated when you're not there every day. You can see the kindness in general, and I've heard it from every staff I have met there. These people here with my dad and everyone else are just awesome. They are a great facility that is very kind.
