I wanted to call and tell you how wonderful everyone was to my sister. The people at the Haven could not have done more for her before she passed away. They were so loving and caring and they really treated her like family.

Several of my colleagues and I (whom are nurses and Nurse Practitioners) were out for a business lunch at a local Mexican restaurant here in Greenville, SC. We were sat next to a table of about 12 senior citizens. I wanted to tell you that what we all witnessed was nothing short of amazing. A woman named Nikki (we saw her nametag) was walking around to each and every individual assisting them with their meals. She was making sure that they were happy and comfortable. We watched her rub their arms and backs, look directly at them when speaking to them, helped them cut up food, laughed with them, etc. She took time with each and every one of them. She was the epitome of kindness and gentleness to all of them. You should be very proud of her. It was so amazing. None of us have ever seen such attention and caring towards so many people at one time. We saw her wrap her lunch up and take it to go with her because she had no time to eat. I am hoping that this email gets into the proper hands because Nikki should be recognized for performing her job clearly above and beyond!

Greenville's Hidden Gem... My husband has been at The Haven for 1 1/2 years. He started in the Day Haven program and when corporate phased out that program nationwide, he became a resident. They are a memory care assisted living facility, so they only take those with a dementia diagnosis. From outside appearances, the Haven would not wow you compared to all the new facilities springing up in Greenville. But, face it, by the time your relative needs memory care, the glitz is more for the family members. The Haven has been remodeled inside and is perfectly suited to dementia residents. It is all on one level, so no steps to navigate. They have three sections (which residents can freely roam through) and the rooms in each section are around the perimeter of the bright, cheerful dining area and TV/sitting area. No nursing home/hospital type hallways here, which encourages residents as they come out of their rooms to be a part of the social community. Few of the residents spend a lot of time alone in their rooms. They have appropriate activities in the facility, take those who are mobile on outings to restaurants and parks, and strongly encourage families to be involved. The food is great and the residents always have a choice of two entrees with different sides. The facility has bright, cheerful hall areas between the three sections, with pictures on the walls to spark one's memories and various sitting areas. The staff has always kept up with my husband's laundry and the housekeeping service does a great job of keeping the rooms and common areas clean. It always smells good which can be a big factor when making decisions about a facility. There is a beauty shop and a lady comes each Saturday to take care of those needs for the residents who choose to make use of her services, both male and female. Each resident room has a private bathroom with a toilet and sink, but there is a spa area in each section for showers. It is still private for those showering. I wouldn't want my husband to decide to take a shower alone in his room and possibly have a fall, so this is designed for the residents' safety. If I had to choose again on where to place my husband, I wouldn't hesitate to have him at The Haven. Just down the road from Greenville Memorial Hospital, it is one of Greenville's hidden gems. You should definitely check them out if dementia care arises in your family.
