mom feels safe and happy

reviewed on: 11/13/2014 by Anonymous

It is a great facility and a wonderful place to have my mom. Right now their director just left on maternity leave, as has one of their nurses, so there is an issue with the consistency not being there right now, and that is making it more difficult than it would otherwise be for mom to get adjusted. They do have great food, the staff is super friendly, and mom feels safe and happy there.

It's really, really, super here.

It's really, really, super here. They have a lot of entertainment to keep them busy. Everyone has been really, really, nice. It's a nice unit, I like the little apartment. The food is really good. I liked the building and the staff. I liked that there was a lot of activity here, some of the places I looked at, there wasn't really anyone around.

A Work in Progress, but Overall A Good Community

My father is still adjusting to this community, but overall it is a nice facility. They have a good staff here. I know he is in good hands, and receiving good care. There activities available for the residents when they are ready to participate. He is adjusting to meals they serve. It has been a good experience, and I would recommend this community.
