Pictures from Our Tour of Victoria Falls

Posted on November 24, 2016 by under Family, Life.

It was bright and sunny that day so Brian loaned grandma his sunglasses. Doesn’t she look absolutely stylish in them?

Untitled

One of the things I liked about the place is that they had chairs everywhere so any time you got tired of walking you could just have a seat as needed.

Untitled

This is grandma going through her long list of questions with Tom, facility director.

Untitled

Untitled

This is Brian pretending to pay attention. Just kidding. He really was paying attention. I promise.

Untitled

One of grandma’s favorite nurses moved here from the place where she currently lives. We ran into her and we had a nice visit.

Untitled

All of the residents we encountered seemed super happy to be living there. Everyone appeared satisfied and happy with the service. There was this one guy in a scooter who was really funny. He was like, “You guys must be pretty special to get Tom here on a Sunday.”

I love the aviary that they have in the middle of the room.

Untitled

Here’s a better picture of it.

Untitled

You don’t need fake nature sounds when you can hear real birds chirping away.

Untitled

This would probably be my favorite spot if I lived there.

Untitled

I find bird sounds so calming and relaxing.

Untitled

I also like the nice private courtyard in the middle of the facility.

Untitled

We walked through there to get to the dining hall.

Untitled

It will be the perfect spot for nice days.

Untitled

Brian loved the train trolley in the middle of the dining room.

Untitled

Untitled

It’s a nice touch.

Untitled

There are also booths in there so you can eat inside the trolley if you like.

Untitled

There’s also a beauty salon onsite.

Untitled

And a bistro for the dessert socials.

Untitled

Untitled

This is where they play bingo and movies.

Untitled

There are also various game tables like billiards and shuffleboard, which is perfect for the more active residents of the facility.

Untitled

Untitled

And all of the hallways are nice and wide. Perfect for zooming around in a motorized chair or scooter.

Untitled

There are lots of activities for the residents, which gives everyone ample opportunities to socialize.

Untitled

Here’s the November calendar up close.

Untitled

The best part is that all residents are issued a safety pendant that they can push in case of emergency. This would have been perfect that time that grandma fell in her apartment. It might have saved her from further injuries from having to crawl over to the phone. With this, she can just push the button and help would be on its way.

Untitled

I liked the facility overall but this is by far our favorite feature. We are looking forward to moving grandma here in a few weeks. I think she will really love it here.
