And this is Why…

The decision to open a home specifically for memory care came from my personal experience. My husband Gary fell victim to Alzheimer’s dementia. While I was able to keep him at home for over 5 years, it finally came time I had to place him in an assisted living that had a memory care wing. Although the first facility tried their best, they requested I move him after 6 months and it took me nearly 2 months to find a facility that not only had a bed for him but could meet his unique needs. Gary was ultimately moved and spent the last 4 months of his life in an assisted living that specialized in memory care 400 miles outside of our community.  I felt strongly that no one should ever have to leave their community for their dementia-related end-of-life needs. After Gary passed, I became determined to investigate the feasibility of making available that kind of care to Montezuma County. Then I found BeeHive Homes…and as they say, the rest is history.
