Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any first-hand or highly reliable information about a good assisted living development in Morrisville/Cary? It's for 88 year old mother who is independent and in fairly good heatlh , but at 88 still could use day-to-day help with basics. Thanks, as always!

I've visited some. I did not find any that were substandard (but then I only visited some of the larger ones). I can't recall all of the names of them but some of the locations were:
Raleigh, Marriott one on Blue Ridge
Cary downtown area, GlenAire, Waltonwood, Brookdale
Cary out by US1
Cary/Morrisvile, Preston
Cary Searstone
Cary Heartfields

I also visited 2 in Chapel Hill but ruled those out because it was in the opposite direction from home and work. In the end Mom would not move so we hired an in home aide who comes several days per week to do the basics and has some schedule flexibility should we need her for overnights, or longer hours. The aide calls us if anything is amiss at home or with Mom.

Depending on your mom's needs, the Triangle also has a number of Independent Living facilities. You can couple nursing aide services for things like a daily check, assistance with dressing, etc.
Some places also offer Independent, Assisted, Nursing and Memory care as required which minimizes the need to move as her as her condition changes.

I have direct experience with a couple of Raleigh Independent Living facilities - if that interests you, just DM me.

I'm looking for somewhere for my mom right now too. I'm using Care Patrol in Raleigh. They have been taking me around on tours of facilities that are in the budget. We're getting ready to pick one. I have to say, I've been really impressed with Care Patrol. They've made this much easier. You might consider that if you need extra help. It's free to the family. They charge the facility.
