Room service at home

My grandmother who is in her late eighties has very recently left her house and moved to a retirement apartment. We went to visit her in the weekend and he appartment was lovely and the surrounding gardens was lovely with seating areas, flowers and a fountain. She had a view over the train track from her living room window which our 3 year old thought was great.

"I feel like I am on holiday and I am living in a hotel"

At lunchtime the doorbell rang and a waitress brought in a tray of food from the in-house restaurant.

Too bad I'll have to wait...

Thats nice considering she probably cooked a million meals for others in her life, she deserves a break

It sounds wonderful. It's such a shame that many nursing homes have bad reputations. Whenever I hear anything about them, I look out for a 'but'

This one, though, sounds fabulous! she's very lucky indeed :)
