When mama moved into assisted living last May, her only option was a single room. It's a large room, but still. At that time we put her name on the waiting list for a suite and were told that it would likely be the best part of a year before one became available. She's managed beautifully since then and has been content, saying she has everything she needs. She settled in so well that she wasn't even sure she'd want to move.
A few weeks ago we learned that a suite was available. Well, she took one look at the larger space, separate living and sleeping areas, built-in storage, and better closets and made her decision in a hurry!
Today I helped her make the move and thanks to the staff that did the heavy lifting, it went smoothly!
