It was more like a nursing home. Fac...reviewed on: 12/30/2012 by A Place For Mom Customer
It was more like a nursing home. Facility was showing it's age. Rooms either shared a shower or shared a commode and shower. 15% of residents were on hospise care. Smelled like nursing home in places. Director was very knowledgeable, caring place, but certainly not a fit for her. We checked pricing for comparison purposes and their prices were $2,900 / mo which included all medical care. This made us feel better about the $3,500 price range that we targeted assuming we can find a way to fund it via additional VA payments.

She's still getting to know the place and adjusting. It's all new to her, and it's been a really big adjustment. It's the cheapest place and best price I could find, which is why we considered it. But I would say you get what you pay for. They're just coming out of the pandemic too. They're having problems with staffing, just like every place else. I've talked with them about it, and they're working on it. And it's getting better. It's not a bad place. I know that my loved one is safe there. On occasion when I've tried some of the food off her plate, it's been good. I think the main problem is they mix the dementia care residents in with the regular elderly care, and that seems to be a problem. I think if they had more staff, that could be more manageable. I just know that all the other places I toured had separate units for memory care vs. regular residents. Also the people who handle the medical are hard to get ahold of. And I wish the doctor had a more pleasant bedside manner. But I don't want to be harsh on Southern Care. The staff there are great. I've become friends with a lot of them. Lockdowns are diminishing, and when I talk to my loved one, she and I have decided to stick it out and see how things change as the world goes back to normal.

We were really happy with our experience at Southern Care. While it's probably not the place to be if you want Persian rugs and chandeliers, it is the place to be if you want kind, courteous care for your loved ones. It will be our first choice should we need care solutions for other family members in the future.
Above average facility!!reviewed on: 04/11/2017 by Anonymous
I think everything at this community is overall above average. They have a great staff team that accommodates my mothers needs as best as possible and makes sure she is comfortable in her new living environment. There has been no issues with the food and she has slowly started to participate in the activity program they have available. Overall we have no serious complaints and would recommend this place to anyone.

I went by Southern Care this afternoon. Very quaint. I saw the one room that they had available and the lady showing me the room quoted me a price of $3,200.
