The Next Best Thing to Home
I would like to start out by saying that the City of Morton is very fortunate to have a facility such as Mississippi Care Center. It is run by caring, loving, and capable nurses, nurse’s aids, and all of the other wonderful employees. My mother became ill and was unable to continue living alone in March of 2015. Her home was at ‘White Oak, MS’ in Smith County. She, like most, was a little apprehensive about leaving her home of 60 years, but I live within walking distance of Mississippi Care Center, so we decided that it would be a ‘good fit’ for the both of us. We were right! It wasn’t home to her, but it was the next best thing. She was very content there until her death. She received quality care, made lots of friends, and participated in many of the different activities provided, as long as she was able. She and her roommate were inseparable. They were such a sight to behold! In just a few short months, they became the closest of friends, looking after each other and telling each other ‘life long secrets’ (things that NO one else knew). I miss my Mom so very much but I am satisfied in the fact that we made the right decision with Mississippi Care Center. I recommend it highly to families with loved ones who need ‘around the clock’ care.
