I Visited This Community

As I waited in Alta Vista's gorgeous lobby for the person I was supposed to meet, my eyes bounced from area to area finding another clever and/or beautiful touch everywhere I looked. As I studied the glass entry my eyes stopped on a cute little old woman with a walker, who had been dropped off at the door by one of her children who went to park the car, as I went to hold the door for her so she could enter the marble entry way she paused and looked around and said to me "If I would have known it was this fancy, I would have dressed up more!". Thinking the same thing, I couldn't help but wonder if others of the intended population didn't feel the same way. As pretty as it was, I think that it felt more like a hotel, then home. The apartments are nicely done, if a little small. Well appointed and designed, they do feel much more homey and relaxed than the rest of the building would lead you to believe. The entire building is clean and well maintained and the staff always smiling. There are activities posted all over and the residents seem busy and happy. The food looked fantastic, if maybe a little too dressed up. If grandma is a socialite who likes to go out to fancy places she will love the set up, but if she's more down home meat and potatoes type, she may feel a little out of place. Her kids will love it though, happy to have mom in such a beautiful place and well cared for to boot!
