Before coming to Glen Carr House in Derby, Merle was living in his daughter’s basement. His family was providing care for him, but noticed that he was becoming a hermit and grouchy in recent months.
Within weeks of moving Merle to Glen Carr House, he began smiling, talking, laughing and eating. He has the most beautiful smile now, too.
“He is back to the dad I know,” Merle’s daughter said.
Merle’s daughter now frequently shares how thankful she is for Glen Carr House and what we do to enrich the lives of those who live here.
Before coming to a community that specializes in memory care, Marge was often left in her room alone with her blinds closed, going without eating or communicating with others.
Now at Glen Carr House in Derby, Marge likes to tell stories.
Within minutes of moving in, Marge ate two sandwiches, chips and a drink. She then began some of our life enrichment activities that included singing church hymns, and she chimed right in! After accepting that Marge's decline was part of the aging process before, her family stopped moving her belongings and furnishings in and stood in amazement of what they now were witnessing.
Today, Marge is very involved in all our activities, eats every meal and smiles and sings regularly.
