  • Keep an eye on the bank account

    Be careful if set up automatic payment. They won't stop taking from your loved ones account when your loved one moves on. We had to stop payment at the bank until we got the account closed.

  • Based only on a tour, I was impressed by Prairie Meadows due to its focus entirely on Alzheimers. Where many other facilities have assisted living with a memory care wing, Prairie Meadows is all designated to Alzheimers with facilities dedicated to different levels in the progression of the disease. They also seemed very warm and caring.
