Friendly and Caringreviewed on: 03/10/2015 by Anonymous
What a wonderful care facility and an amazing staff! It feels like a large caring family and such a homey atmosphere. Mom is very happy there which was a concern at first as she has not been away from her family or friends for all of her 93 years. The services they offer cover almost all needs and they are always willing to help find assistance if they are not able to provide it. We are so fortunate to have been referred here through a referral from A Place For Mom.
We Will Use Them Againreviewed on: 09/03/2013 by Virginia
My mom is not one to participate in activities. I know they have a fair amount and a variety planned. She went to one musical program. We used them for respite care and I've already called them to use them again. I think that says it all. We were very satisfied. It's a smaller place. They probably don't have 50 or 60 residents so it's not overwhelming like some other places.
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.
Pleasedreviewed on: 02/23/2019 by Janie D
My father in-law was at Southern Care for about 3 years and we were pleased with the care. After a bad experience with as assisted living facility in Donelson, we decided to move our mother to Southern Care. It’s not the fanciest with all the bells and whistles, but it is clean, small enough that patients actually are called by their name. Home cooked food (actually seasoned and not packaged) and family members can have a meal without any cost. Very little employee turnover, most of the workers were still there from several years ago. I was impressed when we walked in and they still remembered us from when my father in-law was there. Meal time can be challenging no matter what facility. Yes, people in wheelchairs are lined up waiting to be seated, did bother me at first, but I don’t know any other alternative. Safe, caring and affordable.
Wonderful, home-like assisted livingreviewed on: 12/26/2017 by Kim Williams
There is no place like home but home, period. My Mom was here for 3.5 years until her recent passing, and I can say hands down she was extremely well cared for. Nurses and nursing techs were all very kind and compassionate and did every single thing I ever asked of them. Nurses called me if there was a change in Mom's condition or a new medication. The food was always fresh and home cooked and they would offer an alternative if something was served that Mom didn't like. When she passed, the whole staff grieved with me. If you are worried more about the actual care your loved one receives versus the lavishness of the building, this is an excellent choice for you. The facility is clean, food is good, staff is kind and compassionate, and monthly rates are very reasonable for the amount of care and assistance provided. What more could you want for your loved one?
