Resident spotlight: Bob Andrews
Parsons Presbyterian Manor has a variety of living possibilities which take into account each resident’s needs and abilities. These options help each resident feel right at home. That’s what Bob Andrews discovered. Bob has been in our assisted living area for around a year, but has spent some time in each of our care settings.
“I’ve enjoyed getting to know the people here, both staff and residents. I like the community feeling and the food is pretty good,” said Bob.
Bob has been at Presbyterian Manor four or five years in various areas.
“Initially, I was in the PATH® (Post Acute to Home) program after becoming ill at home, and then lived in the independent living area. I lived there for a couple of years, but after I became ill a second time, I went through the PATH program again. After rehabilitating, I moved down to the assisted living apartments.”
This continuity of care model at Parsons Presbyterian Manor has allowed Bob to remain at “home” while getting the care he needs for every season of his life.
“I’ve been in this apartment about a year and enjoy the freedom of being able to come and go as I please. I may be 92, but I still drive around town when I need to get out or just to go play cards at the Senior Center,” said Bob. “I like the convenience and the care I receive and assistance with transportation when I might need it. I also really like the therapy I have received here.”
When asked if he would recommend Presbyterian Manor to friends and family, Bob answers with a resounding “Yes.”
“I have many friends who’ve lived in various different settings here,” said Bob. “I really like the Presbyterian Manor community and would recommend living here, whether it be short term in the PATH program, or something more long-term such as an independent living duplex or assisted living apartments.”
