[Music] the reason why you know we came to jefferson ferry is because I don't sambhal to your work after that happened last 13 years with set the County Family Services and as a result of an opportunity to see many places here on Long Island that care for people who are in nursing homes or if you will in assisted living and things places of that nature not hearing about this place I just say I didn't know about this place can I heard about Jefferson ferry being rated the top a long island and I didn't know where it was and when someone told me was going two miles of my home I could not believe that so we came over and took a look at it and we frankly liked it very much and that's one of the reasons why we decided we were going to make a move here and we started planning ahead and we're we're here now going on five years isn't right and we truly truly enjoyed him really do I like the idea of the cottages I liked the space and I could run a lot of my things with me and this was available and he would have you would have lived in the main building this but I didn't feel the same way he did about that and so we saw it we met the people we met the marketing staff who were wonderful Jefferson feria does a very good job on that story this place has too much meat I can't believe it 100 percent of what we wanted or asked for has been done for us we've had nothing turn down that we haven't asked for nothing they've always come through that is amazing to me it really is good time the staff here on every level and now me having been ill and needing to be in over there and Bowl day for a week couldn't then and now I go for my PT over there too so I can literally walk across the street for my again I hope I don't have to use it again for five years but it's certainly nice to know that it's there if I need it and it's only a few steps away and that's what i meant on us there were only about all avenues of cover here I use like backup position I don't needed you they covered everything to the point where if I pick up the phone and say I need transportation to the main building and you know I'll call the main building it's a matter of 200 maybe hundred fifty yards are not even sure it is they're over here in a flash and I take you back to the main building [Music]
