Short Stay

reviewed on: 07/28/2017 by Anonymous

We had only placed my dad here for about 2 weeks. From what I observed the community seemed to be clean and smelled fine. The staff was excellent at meal time someone would come and take my dad down to the dining area so he could eat. He never mentioned the food but I ate there once and the food was very good. The layout of the building seemed fine and the temperature was comfortable. The location was good only about 15 mnutes from me.

Good Value for Clean, Safe, Caring Place

The facility was remodeled fairly recently and is lovely. If you are looking for perfection, you are not going to find it here or anywhere else. However, if your expectations are reasonable, you will find a caring staff, both administratively and in the services who try hard to fulfill the needs of residents and almost always succeed. As in almost all of these facilities, the workers tend to be underpaid and overworked. For them, it is a labor of love. Our 91-year old mother moved in almost four years ago and started out as an independent living resident, and transitioned into assisted living care as her Alzheimer's progressed. The residents do sometimes complain about the food, which is along the lines of what you get in a college dormitory, so don't expect to get everything cooked the exact way you want it. But the variety of meals is fine and other food options are available. They have a shuttle bus that regularly takes residents to a variety of department stores and grocery stores every week. There are also field trips available including Mariner's games, parks, occasional restaurants, and other activities. They even have a happy hour every Friday afternoon. There is a daily schedule of activities planned and posted each day for any resident who wishes to participate. Whenever we have made a reasonable request for anything regarding maintenance, food, or billing, they have always tried to accommodate us. The costs that we have experienced throughout this time were very reasonable and it would be hard to find more bang for your buck elsewhere. They have a tough job to do and they do it well.

I don't think they are geared to assist people with Dementia..

My husband has Dementia. I don't think they are geared to assist people with Dementia. That is my only main concern. I also think he spends too much time alone. They don't have any activities for residents with Dementia. They said they would make changes. The food is really good. I had dinner there before. I want my husband home but I think this is as good as it will get. They are suppose to be making changes and I am looking forward to that.
