In 2015 my husband and therefore the whole family was faced with an unexpected life threatening brain aneurysm. In the course of dealing with all that is attendant with an unexpected emergency of gigantic proportions, Wake Forest Baptist Hospital pointed us to the SECU house for lodging since we didn't have any idea how long we would an hour away from our home.
I can't say enough wonderful things about the SECU house!! The people there were very kind and attentive. I believe the people with whom I was in contact are called to the job, because they must deal with very upset people, most of whom are also away from home.
The facility is beautiful and practically arranged. The community provided meals were a Godsend and the availability of the wonderful kitchen, the sitting rooms, the computers, the chapel and the library were wonderful amenities. I think of it as a cross between a great hotel and a huge home! Also, the availability of the shuttle enabled me not to have to keep a car there when I was unfamiliar with the area and upset as well. I can't say enough about the blessing these people and this facility was to me and my family. I try to financially and materially support them as I can and I tell everyone I know what an excellent support this is to those under great duress. It is a wonderful place to put monies as you choose charities to support. I was there a full six weeks! It is a tremendous blessing!!
The most amazing place! The staff are so loving and caring! The facility is so clean and has a relaxed environment. It truly made a huge difference for my recovery! I healed so much faster than the average time for my surgery. I was able to concentrate on my recovery and not struggle with day to day activities at home. The food was amazing! My daughter loved being able to leave hospital (after being there all day with me) to come there and have dinner waiting on her. So much less stress on the care takers!
