HeartFields is a combined assisted living residence with an alzheimers/dementia wing called Bridge to Rediscovery. We went for a tour at HeartFields to look at rooms for our parents. Mom is growing a bit forgetful and has Parkinsons and it is becoming too much for Dad to take care of. We are worried about her falling and him declining in the stress of caring for her, even though help comes in every day, they are alone at night. We are leaning towards HeartFields because they can be in an apartment together to start, and if mom's dementia progresses, we could possibly move her to the memory wing and she and Dad can still see each other and be under the same roof, but he won't be responsible for her care. The bus was unloading many residents (some in wheelchairs) who had just gone for an outing to lunch at Logans Steakhouse. They were all very animated and looked like they had a good time. I was disappointed to see some people sleeping in chairs in the lobby. One of the staff said this is their home; they like to sit in the lobby and wait for their friends to return, and fall asleep while waiting. I guess if I was their age I might nap, too. The rooms were well appointed for the price and the value: furniture was included in the price, the call buttons, all the meals, the phone, the activities . . . they even have whirlpool spas on each floor the residents can reserve (included!). I thought it was pretty nice and suddenly saw the appeal of never doing my own laundry again. My Dad loved it and the price was less than what we pay for home health care now. We should have looked into this a long time ago and taken the stress and hassle of scheduling home health care providers and dealing with Mom's meds.
