Welcome to Caring Bridge. Marilyn and I are using this service to keep everyone apprised of how Marilyn is doing. Here is our report so far. Marilyn moved into Great Falls Assisted Living at the end of January when I could no longer assure myself that I could keep Marilyn safe here at home because she would wander away from home and I was not sure that either Marilyn or Harper the cat or I could be safe at night. There were a number of near misses with our gas range.
After a bumpy couple of days, Marilyn settled in to life at Great Falls. Our hope is that the 24 hour care by trained professionals, regular meals, lots of activities and a regular sleep cycle would make things better for Marilyn. So far so good, except for the sleep cycle. Marillyn's doctors, the director of nursing and I are working on trying to improve that part.
The best part about Great Falls Assisted Living is the affection that the care partners and senior staff show in Marilyn's regards and, as you know, that makes all the difference. I will update you from time to time when I have more news.
