we're living independently now we do our own cooking read your own house cleaning or we can go and come as we want to we can we have our own cars we got her own groceries and we do all that but there comes a point in time when you you lose your ability to drive and you can't go get the groceries so you move to that next level of care where you get your meals here and they'll do some of your housekeeping chores for you and so forth and then of course the next level of care is is when you need medical assistance and the medical assistance includes your meals but there they will take care of you help you with your bath and do all those things for you which you can't do for yourself and then when you get to the point where you beyond that you can go to the nursing the health care unit which is full skilled nursing so you have these various levels and the security of feeling that that's there for you it just gives you a comfort level that you're going to ask for any way anywhere else many people though they want to stay where their kids are because they're going to think the kids are going to take care of them well that's an awful burden to place on your family so that burden is relieved by coming to a place like this and all of our kids are just absolutely thrilled they come to visit us and we visit with them and and they know that we're happy here which is half the battle and they also know that we're going to be cared for and so are our families all of them are just absolutely thrilled that were in a place like this
