A daughter’s testimonial

​”Care suites are a valuable addition to the continuum of care. We didn’t know care suites existed. But after experiencing one, it is definitely the choice for us. Care suites allowed us to honor my mother’s wishes that she not live out her days in a nursing home. We are paying the same now for around the clock care as we were for my mother to have home care come in for half the day every day. My mother is able to have her own furnishings in her own (care suite) apartment. At first mother was apprehensive, but the children took care of everything involved around the move since this was the biggest obstacle to choosing care suites. To the extent that she is able, mom is able to do her own thing. She is not made to fit any model–she and the family have choices. Yes, it is expensive, but it is the same as the cost of a nursing home where you share a room with a stranger and there is only a sheet separating the two beds. The care suite has been a life saver for my mother.”

A resident’s testimonial:

“I chose TowerLight Care Suites because the community is new, the apartment/suites are attractive and I knew I would get help at the push of a button. In considering my choices, (home care or a nursing home) I found around the clock home care was more expensive, and I did not want to go to a nursing home. My care suite apartment was the perfect choice for me.”
