I am a friend or relative of resident 5

My wife was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease about 12 years ago and has mild dementia. Over the years, she has required more and more care. I began to realize I needed some time during the week just for me and to get errands done that just didn’t fit into the schedule. Encore has been the perfect solution for us. When we first considered care away from home, my wife was very resistant to the idea. It took me several months to convince her that I needed some time for myself. After the first half day visit, she began to be more comfortable being with others away from home. She found that she enjoyed the many activities that were scheduled each day and the loving care and attention she received from the staff. The facility is new, bright, clean and functional. We are so blessed to have a place like Encore to help us through a difficult time in our lives. My wife has developed friendships with the other folks attending Encore as well as the staff. A few times, I have observed her smiling or laughing while she was participating in group activities. I have confidence that my wife is being cared for in a very professional and caring way. We have recommended Encore to several of our acquaintances who seek the services offered by Encore.
