Grandma put down a deposit to be on the waiting list for a place at Abbotswood. She and Mom toured Abbotswood and Independence Village and went back to Abbotswood again a second time to see a room that had a patio or balcony.
Grandma has a bird feeder on the patio of her current apartment and she wanted to be able to have one in the retirement home as well. Mom was concerned that the door to the patio would take up more floor space than Grandma really wanted to give up so they toured a place with the patio to see what it was like. Apparently, she liked the patio unit a lot! Her first choice as first floor patio unit. Her lease is up May 1 and we are hoping to have her into her new place by mid-April.
The entry into this new stage of her life has been a long process. It's good to see her make this decision and brave of her to do it on her own.
