I spent 7 nights with mom at Faith Home Assisted Living, probably giving me better insight into the facility than most relatives of residents there! I felt very comfortable there, it didn't seem at all like I was confined. I compare the experience to life in a college dorm, except the food was better, and I had a car!
The staff there is amazing. I didn't see one instance of impatience or frustration towards a resident. They were very respectful and caring. Mom is comfortable with them, and enjoys the interaction. We can be thankful that such a facility is available for her.
The apartment is very nice (for those of you who haven't seen it). Lots of light and good storage. Very cozy.

Although mom tends to complain about it, the food was good! Basically tastes like what I would cook at home. She is eating well, though snacking a lot on candy in her room. Hence the weight gain. On our last trip to the grocery store Sunday, though, she bought fruit and crackers instead of chocolate!
I think mom's in the best possible place for her situation. I know I could not find the same quality of care here in the Denver area.
