When it became clear my Mother could no longer live on her own, I didn’t know where to turn. My Mother was diagnosed with second stage dementia. I didn’t know where to start. A friend recommend Senior Living Options of the Desert, I called and spoke with Susan Peterson. She was very compassionate, caring and listen to my fears and concerns. It is a very difficult decision. Knowing your mother can no longer care for herself, but feeling guilty about taking her out of her home. Susan was so understanding. She knew how hard this was, and she shared her past experiences with me, and calmed my fears.
It took us a couple attempts before we found the right solution, but we did. My Mother is now safe, cared for and doing very well. Because of her dementia it didn’t take long for her to settle in. She has made friends with the other residents and enjoys having people to interact with. She and her roommate have become great friends.
This was the most difficult decisions I have ever made, but I am confident now it was the right one. I could not have done this without Susan and Senior Living Options! I will never be able to express how grateful and thankful I am to Susan and her staff. The peace of mind you have given me is priceless!
Thank you so very much!
