My father has been living at Atria Kew Gardens in the memory care area. The staff are so loving and care for my father so well. I tried to care for him myself at home but it was such a struggle and when I made the decision to move him it was a difficult one. But I see now that I made the right choice and everyone has just been so helpful.
