“Mom has been at The Terrace since May 2008. Living there allows her independence, if she wishes, or help with activities such as bathing, dressing, and taking her medications. Having three meals a day prepared for her is a special treat, since it was getting difficult for her to fix her own meals at her previous apartment.
She participates in most of the social activities from daily exercise time to sing-alongs, music recitals and ice cream parlor time or movies in the Community Room. She has her hair done twice a week and sometimes her nails done from visiting young people from the local BOCES school. When she wants to be alone, she retires to her room to watch TV or call her family and chat on the phone.
It gives us peace of mind to know that she is happy and well taken care of. Most of all, we know she has the company of many friendly people her own age, and a special caring staff of aides and nurses.”
