A positive experience for our entire family

My mom has been residing at Via since June and I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased I am. I always promised my mom that I would never ask her to move or move her to an assisted living home. She always wanted to stay in her home and she did have the financial resources in order to do so. However, my mom’s health began declining for the past year and some difficult decisions had to be made. She lived alone and very quickly we learned that once you need more than 5-6 hours of care a day, it is extremely difficult to find help without utilizing a service. The problem is she was spending $20/hour to have someone sit there and basically “watch” her a majority of the time. She and I felt that it was becoming a big waste of money. We thought if she could only share the care with others it would make more sense. Well, that is exactly what we found we could achieve at Via Elegante. The home, suites and surroundings are beautiful so my mom decided to give Via a try. She now feels it was the best decision she ever made. But the best part is that my mom is not only happy; she is thriving. In four months, her mental acuity has returned, her strength is increasing and she is feeling healthier. I do believe that three good meals, proper medication administration, strength trainers that come to her, and activities have helped her achieve this improvement in her health. My mom loves it, because she notices the difference in her health as well. She feels safe, comfortable and all her needs are met. She can socialize when she wants and she can have peace and quiet in her beautiful suite when feels like it as well. I love it, because I know she is safe and has someone 24 hours/day to help her with absolutely anything. So thank you to the staff and management at Via. What we thought would be a difficult adjustment, has instead become a positive experience for our entire family. — Vanessa Reagan
