My mother lived at the Promenade at Blue Hill for the last two and a half months of her life. My siblings and I could not be happier with the care she received during this time. She had been living independently until after her 98th birthday when heart disease necessitated an assisted living facility. While my mother had always been determined to remain in her home and live independently the quality of the staff and the caring atmosphere of the Promenade made her feel at home within two weeks of her arrival. Numerous times in the last few weeks of her life my mom reported “I am happy here”.
There were numerous activities such as daily exercise, mind challenging games, regular sing-a-longs with guest musicians, outings on the bus (which was accessible for wheel chair bound residents), and opportunities for religious services both at the Promenade and in local churches. The quality of the staff could not have been better. The marketing director, supervising nurses, aides, and recreational staff were all excellent and demonstrated compassion, patience, and flexibility as my mother’s needs changed over the months. My mother told me many times that the aides were very caring in helping her with daily living skills. They quietly checked on her throughout the night. As her health deteriorated in her final week, the staff reassured us that as a team we could maintain her in her beautiful room.
My siblings and I checked several facilities before choosing the Promenade and we are so happy that my mom spent her final months with such a caring and competent staff.
