My sister and I were looking for assisted living for our dad who had been living in his own home for 96 years but now needed additional services to stay active and independent. We found "Elk River Senior Living". The apartment is spacious and very accessible. The knowledge that someone checks on him daily and assists with basic morning and evening care is a heaven sent. In the past if we called him and he did not pick up we would really start to worry!! Now we know he's safe and probably out and about. They have encouraged him to participate in the ongoing daily activities provided, by not just posting them but reminding him of what's going on day to day and helping get to the location of the activity whether it's fitness classes, movies, bingo, happy hour to name a very few of all that's available to partake in. ALL the staff are respectful, and caring individuals.
Having to leave your home is probably one of the most difficult decisions anyone has to make and we know that it was for our dad but he embraces the fact that he has access to medical assistance 24 hours a day and that's the reassurance he did not have living alone.
