"Bel Aire has about 45 residents. I picked it because they deal with a lot of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients, so they have a lot of experience with that. My mom has dementia and they were willing to help with that. I’m very happy with them because they’ve done a great job. The food is quite good, and she seemed to enjoy it; the three meals a day is a highlight for older people. They also bring around water in between meals along with snacks to make sure they drink enough water to stay hydrated.
They walk every morning, and they have exercises they can do as a group while they’re sitting in their chairs or wheelchairs. They do bingo three days a week and have a lady that comes in as a hairdresser for them twice a week. The building itself is centralized, so all the people can gather in a certain area. They have a lot of things they can do, but whether they do it or not is up to the individual. My mom can’t do all of them because of her dementia, but she can do things that she’s willing to try.
They have different setups where they have medium-sized rooms and small rooms, depending on the level of care you need and the price. My mom got a medium-sized room that had its own bathroom. It was big enough for her bed, couch and still had plenty of room. I really liked the idea of a bathroom and shower in a room."
