One of our residents shares her experience at Providence Emilie Court Assisted Living.
I recently made a very difficult decision to give up my home and my two dogs Sugar and Lulu to move into Providence Emilie Court. It was a decision that I put off way too long.
Most people my age have children and grandchildren to count on; however both of my children have met with untimely deaths so I had no one to count on.
Fortunately, God provides! A dear family who lived nearby located the perfect place for me and gently encouraged me for over a year. As my health began to deteriorate, I finally moved.
When I arrived at Providence Emilie Court, I was so frail and had lost so much weight that I had to depend on the nursing staff to help me with all of my personal care.
The staff went out of their way to make sure my needs were met from the first day I moved in. They got me up and dressed me every morning and encouraged me to eat three balanced meals daily in the dining room where I was able to meet new friends. I started getting out of my apartment and enjoying activities regularly, which has helped my social life to grow and become more diverse.
Moving to Providence Emilie Court has been the best decision I ever made. I have put on weight for the first time in years and have gained enough strength to feel more confident and in control of my life.
