Kim G Posted June 9, 2018 Report Share Posted June 9, 2018 Hi Folks, I recently joined this forum. There's quite a bit about me on my "about" page, as well as a link to my blog if you're more curious. I have a long history of time spent in Mexico, but I've never been to Ajijic, though I'm well aware of its status as a Gringo haven. I did spend a week in Guadalajara in 2014 (during a road trip where I spent 3 months driving around Mexico), but it was toward the end of my trip and I didn't have the energy to go to Ajijic. I know, silly, and I regret it. But I can't change the past. I'm going to be in Ajijic and environs next week to scout out assisted living facilities for my 88 year old mother. Mom is in OK shape, but getting a bit forgetful, suffers a lot of aches and pains, and walks unsteadily with a walker, and can no longer live alone. (By the way, I also speak Spanish fluently, though for the purpose of this trip, I'm pretending I don't, since mom doesn't and I want her to be in a place she's comfortable communicating with staff and residents.) I've scheduled site visits with the following: La Valentina, Mi Casita, Casa Nostra, Nursing Home Lake Chapala, Alicia's Convalescent Nursing and Assisted Living Home, Casa Anastasia Care Home (all in Ajijic) Lakeside Care (Jaltepec) Ohana (San Juan Cosalá) There are a few others I'm going to try to see. But I'm hoping that folks might provide me any insights they have on these places, or provide some new names that I might check out. I'll be arriving Tuesday night and staying through the 20th. Thanks in advance, and if you have not-nice things to say, feel free to PM me. In fact, I'm especially looking for the negatives that the facilities themselves will never tell me. Thanks, Kim G 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
