My sweet neighbor of 10 years had come to the time where she really needed more assistance than her family was able to provide. At 95 she was still driving herself to doctor appointments, hair appointment, grocery store, bank, out to lunch and shopping if that's what she had a mind to do. I can attest that she was a good driver for I rode with her on several occasions. At 97 years there was no option other than assisted living and of course she was not happy with that. She did however adjust and was happy in her surrounds for 3 years until illness necessitated even more care. At that time it became necessary to find a nursing home/rehab facility so she came to live at Whispering Pines a year ago. From the time they rolled her in from the hospital, she was greeting with wonderful warm smiles and really sweet concerns from all the staff. I was with her a lot during this transitional time and while a bit difficult at first she has adjusted and has nothing but glowing reports about where she now lives. She has never complained about the care she receives, the food or the staff. Use to, I would visit and find her still in her room. Now when I visit, I have to hunt for her. She is either in the main area visiting with the other residents, greeting anyone who walks by or I might find her in the eating area playing games or enjoying lunch or an afternoon snack. All this to say that - she is happy there and very well taken care of and we could not ask for anything more. She had now celebrated her 101st birthday and I fully expect to be celebrating more!!! She is a delightful woman and deserves only the best care.
