Pamela - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
Best move ever

Moving my independent, yet lonely mom from her home at the age of ninety was very difficult for her. As it should be. After two days of living in the Residence at Melrose she said, " this is the best thing ever suggested to me" She is correct. From the staff, who are always smiling and saying hello, to the care services, who are always there to help 100% of the time (day or night. Not one person can do enough for each residence. I am visiting my mom at least twice a week, at all different times. I have seen how calm the entire community of workers are during a possible crisis or problem. Large or small, they continue to impress me with their person care for each individual. If you are interested, take a tour, sample a meal, sit and observe the social activities of the wonderful community. It is not just a place to sleep, it truly is a home for each person living here.
