Moms beginning to fit in!

My mom moved into Cecil House in Sept. 2015. She was a real challenge at first. They did not give up on her. Mom isn't the easiest person to live with cause dad spoiled her something terrible. Then he left us to take over where he had left off. NOT an easy job. However these lovely people have worked hard this past month to make her feel welcomed. She had some ups and downs but I feel she has become very comfortable with them and I might even go so far as to suggest she is beginning to love Dominique and her gentle spirit. She is pretty funny too. Mom also loves her cooking and so do I! I feel she has become a good roommate to her little friend Miss Betty. I hope mom continues to thrive here until I am able to become a bigger part in her life after I retire.

Cecil's Boarding House is an excellent facility.

We placed our parents in Cecil's Boarding House almost three weeks ago and we could not be happier. The care they are receiving is everything that we hoped for. The difficult transition for our parents who were very resistant to leaving their home has been exceptional. This is all due to the excellent staff. My brother and I know that now they are both receiving their proper medication on time as well as everything else they need. Quite honestly Cecil Boarding House has been a Godsend.
