They check on (my mom), see if she needs anything.  She has a one bedroom apartment…there’s plenty of room for her and enough room to have the stuff that she had that she enjoys.  She’s pretty happy there.  She was nervous at first because she didn’t know what to expect. She was just really impressed when she walked in…”
