We Are So Happy Mom Is Thriving .

“ As Mom aged , we thought it best if she stayed in her house , but , even with hours of expensive home care , Mom wasn ’ t thriving . She needed more . She especially needed more socialization — not isolation . And more affordable and reliable access to care when she needed it . So she made the move to Equinox Terrace . She truly loves her elegant new home ! Life is more complete in a community with lots of friends and activities , chef-prepared meals , daily care , medication management , and even transportation to appointments and outings . I know Mom is happier and more relaxed now ... and I am too . We only wish she ’ d moved sooner .”
