    My dad is a resident at Tesson Heights. They have three different-styled apartments. They showed us around the entire community, including the physical therapy facility on the third floor, and answered all my dad's questions. He also met some of the residents on the way through. My dad fell in love with the place so much that he decided to cancel all his other tours. What appealed to him most was that the place looks like an apartment or a hotel and not institutional. It's designed to look residential, the colors are blues and grays basically, it doesn't smell like an institution, and he was able to get a ground-floor apartment. They bent over backwards to help me get my dad transferred from the hospital to their facility on short notice. I'm amazed at what they were able to do. The nursing staff is incredible. My dad isn't cranky, but when he's not feeling well he gets temperamental. They handled him perfectly. The head nurse and executive director -- who is also a nurse -- both work nights and weekends and answer the phone almost immediately. The list of their activities is great and the place itself is immaculate. The food is wonderful, they had good variety and a great menu set up. If my dad doesn't want to go down to eat they will take his food to him upstairs. What I liked about Tesson is that the halls and rooms are carpeted.

    I'm planning to move into Tesson Heights this Tuesday. The meals are good. They have a lot of activities and worship services for Protestants as well as Catholics. They offer three different exercises and really good accommodations. The people are really nice and accommodating; they will take you to doctors' appointments. They have bingo and group games, like Scrabble. We had an excellent lunch with a wide range of choices.

    I had the pleasure of visiting Tesson Heights which offers planned and scheduled activities from 7am to 5pm daily. Which is available 7 days a week.The facility is older. But the inside is decorated with lots of style. And is decorated in warm colors of burgundy and brown. The meal I had at the community was standard American fare. Macaroni and cheese with salad and iced tea. Small portion of fried fish. For desert, apple pie. Which to my suprise was delicious. Staff made sure that I understood their pricing for the units and what was not included, assisted living is charged as needed. In other words you pay separately for help with bathing, showering, laundry, and medication management.
