“When I became my mother’s “Mom”, I had no idea how our lives would change. Advanced Alzheimer’s meant that she would have to move to Tucson. After sitting through several high-pressure pitches and tours, I decided that a large facility would not work. I didn’t want her sitting alone in her room all day with no stimulation, and had no confidence that she’d be able to find the dining room on her own.
The minute I walked into Academy Villas, I knew this was home. Mom could sit and visit with staff while they prepared meals like she was visiting with a next-room neighbor. She loved the patio, watching the birds, enjoying the flower garden and happy hour with other residents. My Mom was a resident tor three and half years. When we were out and about she would say, “I think it is time for me to go home”. We are so impressed with Academy Villas, we have just moved my father-in-law in.”
