GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - One Grand Island facility is urging people to talk to their loved ones about assisted-living accommodations before it’s too late.

Primrose Retirement Community Sales Director Deb Quick told Local4 moving into an assisted living facility is best done sooner rather than later. If a person’s health takes a turn for the worst, the move is likely much more difficult. Quick said she has some advice for adults kids who are trying to get their parent into assisted living facilities.

“What we encourage families to do is to come in with their family members, if they are able, and do a visit with out community to show them what we can offer,” Quick said. “We have so much to offer our families and our residents, it gives them an opportunity, coming in and touring, to see exactly what needs we can fit for them.”

Primrose Executive Director Sophia Acosta said her facility has a team ready to help all types of residents.

“So we are really blessed to have long term staff here at Primrose, a lot of our staff have been here for years since it’s opened,” Acosta said. “We are fully staffed and we’re very are very proud of that. We take pride in knowing that our staff is comfortable in the setting we are in, in assisted living and independent living. They absolutely enjoy the cares, that they provide to the residents here.”

Primrose is set to have an open house on March 23 for families to tour the grounds.
