Your loved one deserves to live the best life possible

Watch your loved one thrive in an environment that feels like home

Navigating the aging journey is difficult.

We understand what’s at stake here: it’s not just someone, it’s your loved one.

Meanwhile, it’s on you to make the difficult decisions.

There's a Higher Path for our seniors

Senior care today is reactive, expensive, and siloed. It’s a sick-care system, not a health-care system (designed to keep seniors healthy). Most of us have accepted this status quo because it feels too big and complex to change. Not us. We’re taking the road less traveled and championing a higher standard of senior care.

This evening was an absolute blast playing balloon volleyball in our Mary B's neighborhood! Let me tell you, staying active as we age is so important, and activities like balloon volleyball are a perfect way to do it. Not only does it keep us physically fit, but it also boosts our memory and cognitive function. So much fun and so many benefits rolled into one activity!

Just taking a little walk before lunch in our Mary B's community! Walking is such a great activity, especially as we age. It helps keep us active, improves cardiovascular health, and strengthens our muscles and bones.

In our Mary B's neighborhood, we just wrapped up Bible study. Our good friend Bob the Chaplain stopped by, played the guitar, and shared the word with us. The music was incredibly uplifting, and we feel so blessed to have friends who care for us.

So this morning in our Mary Bs neighborhood, we celebrated Leap Year Day by making origami frogs and playing a little leapfrog. Let me tell you, it was such an amazing time!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, we had a blast playing our all-time favorite game of "Big word small word" today! Our word of the day was "Grateful." It was so much fun, and what made it even more special was that a couple of friends who don't usually join in decided to participate too. Word games like these are not only entertaining but also have some great benefits as we age. They help keep our minds sharp, improve cognitive skills, and enhance vocabulary. Plus, they bring people together and create a sense of camaraderie. It's a win-win!

Tonight's sing-a-long was absolutely fantastic. One of our residents had a special request and took us on a trip down memory lane. She shared her fond memories of her grandmother taking her to the movies and requested a couple of songs by Nelson Eddy and Jeanette Mac Donald. Thanks to Sue for the suggestion! After that, we all enjoyed some lovely tunes from the 50s and 60s as a group. It was such a wonderful evening filled with music and nostalgia.

It's incredible how much our lovely Miss Sally adores playing with bubbles. She gets so excited and giggles with pure joy. It's such a simple and delightful activity that brings out the childlike wonder in all of us.

We had an absolute blast in our Mary B's neighborhood. We got everyone together and had an amazing time making music with these cool egg shakers. It was such a joy to see everyone getting into the rhythm and creating beautiful sounds together. Music truly has a way of bringing people together, doesn't it?

We had an absolute blast in our Mary B's neighborhood. We threw a hat party with coffee and cookies, and let me tell you, the smiles were contagious! And oh my goodness, those cookies were absolutely scrumptious. It was a delightful gathering filled with laughter and tasty treats.

This morning, we kicked off the day with some invigorating exercise and stretching. It's so important to stay active as we get older, right? After that, we dove into the newspaper and couldn't believe how unpredictable the weather has been lately. From hot days to flurries, nature is definitely keeping us on our toes. By the way, did you know that today is National Tooth Fairy Day? We had a lovely chat about the memories of leaving money for our kids when they lost a tooth. Such a sweet tradition!

    I have a fob to open the front door. It hardly ever works so the staff has to stop what they are doing to come help. Nice workers.! But it takes them away from their work.

    Thank you for your kindness and support in moving my Dad to Mary Bs. It's hard to accept he belongs there sometimes but just a very tough disease he has. Appreciate the reassurance. Love all the FB pictures and your new motto "whatever it takes". It's so nice to see the connections being made.
