Some interesting questions we have received regarding assisted living and memory care that outline the confusion and complexity surrounding assisted living:
**My mom has 2nd stage Alzheimer's and additionally she is wheel chair bound although she can maneuver from the bed to the chair. Can your facility accommodate her needs? She is currently in an assisted living facility - Darlynn
**My sister, and probably her husband will need assisted living
in the near future. She had her right leg amputated below the
knee about Nov. 2009. She has twice been scheduled for a quad
heart by-pass, so as soon as she is able, this is planning to
be done. Her husband had complications from hernia surgery and
surgery was redone about two months ago and is healing slowly.
I am not certain that they will ever be able to live unassisted

Looking for Medicare facility for my 88 year old Mother with Alzheimer's. She has been in our home with us for three years, and is slowing getting to the point we can no longer care for her at home. Unfortunately, she does not have long term care insurance, no resources for private pay. Thanking you in advance. - Susan
