Mary Van Sistine is confident Starling at Nocatee Assisted Living & Memory Care has positively shaped her mother's later years.
"It was a very difficult decision for her to move in to assisted living," Mary said. "It's a big step in her life. But now, I don't think she'd have it any other way. She loves it here."
Her mother, Judy Schultz, finds enjoyment daily.
"My mother, living here, gave her the ability to have lots of activities at her fingertips," Mary said.
Those activities are spent with new friends.
"All these people are her very best friends," Mary said. "They are a family and all care about each other."
Judy recently celebrated her 85th birthday. Mary said the staff at Starling at Nocatee Assisted Living & Memory Care went out of their way to make it extra special.
But, it's not only the special occasions where the staff goes above and beyond. Mary said they're a huge asset every day.
"I think for my mom, she's still alive because of this place," Mary said.
