No question about it! This Primrose facility is a state of the art structure, with spacious living quarters. And, with scheduled activities, a person can be as active or inactive as he or she wants to be. But the thing that is most impressive to me is the PEOPLE and family-like concern of the staff and the other residents. For example…
On one occasion, I skipped breakfast at Primrose to have brunch with one of my daughters. It was a late brunch, so I also skipped lunch at Primrose. During the afternoon, I received a phone call from a staff memeber who noticed that I had missed two consecutive meals, and called to ask if I was OK.
On another occasion, I overnighted at the home of another daughter, about 65 miles away, and before breakfast was over at Primrose, my cell phone rang. It was one of the men I usually have breakfast with.
“Are you going to come down for breakfast?” he asked.
“I’m having breakfast right now,” I replied.
His next question was, “Where are you?” So I filled him in on the details.
Both of these occasions are examples of the family-like concern that is demonstrated over and over again by both the staff and the residents alike.
