I Wasn't Impressedreviewed on: 03/06/2017 by Anonymous
When I toured the community I noticed it had a lot of remodeling but it really felt dim and the ceilings were low. I got the feeling of being confined. I didn't like that there was not a lot of space and not a bright environment. They can make it more like home and provide the same environment to both sides of the place. I could see the difference in the furnishings and it didn't appeal to me overall.

My mother is doing very well since her move. We chose this community because they were able to accommodate to my mother's type 1 diabetes. The facility is very nice and her place is very comfortable. It has been a very good fit so far.

Very cozy. A "family feel" about the environment. I knew when we first walked in to tour that it was a special place. Mother is quite happy here. She reisdes in the care suites as she needs help in many areas. The staff are very gentle -- and provide tender loving care! The dining experince is terrific -- like a 5 star restaurant. We are so very pleased! Would highly recommend!
Great Care Conceptreviewed on: 11/06/2017 by Anonymous
I toured Walker Methodist while looking at living options for my husband, and I really liked the concept of the 5 to 1 patient and caregiver ration they had there. One caregiver had a station in a pod of 5 resident rooms. I did really appreciate this concept, but I found that the facility had a smell, which I did not like.
A confident choice for usreviewed on: 10/01/2016 by Tim & Tina
Thanks to 'A Place for Mom' we discovered Walker Methodist. It has been a God-send for us. We were in urgent need of care beyond assisted living and were able to tour, be assessed, and move into a care suite within 3 days! This is a private room that is connected to a common parlor area shared by 4 others. The staff is friendly and capable and the space is bright and cheery. We ate in the dining room as guests of our loved one and found the food to be delicious. Meals can be taken in rooms but I've heard that they are usually lukewarm when they arrive. There is a microwave in the room which may help. I haven't seen the assisted living spaces or the memory unit but the areas I have seen are clean and nicely decorated.
