San Juan Island Living
We took my 86 year old mother – in -law to Village at the Harbor on San Juan Island 2 weeks ago. Up until that point she had been living on her own a few blocks from our house. It became apparent that she could no longer live on her own. She was not very happy about leaving her home and her independence. Once we took her on a tour of the Village she became excited about the idea. The facility is light and bright with positive energy through out. They provide 3 meals per day in the dining room, they have music in the lobby. They offer excursions around the island, games, excersise, happy hour, they even have a beauty parlor. She has the option of dining in her own apartment studio complete with a kitchen. They change her sheets and do laundry once per week. The grounds are lovely and the people that work there are very considerate and respect her privacy. They do check in on her to remind her when an event is taking place but they don’t bother her. She has improved her health and well being with the social aspect of living at the Village.We don’t worry about her living alone anymore. When we come to visit with our family dog the smile on her face and the gleam in her eyes are priceless.
