Brand new memory care. Highrise in downtown
Felt like a big hotel!!reviewed on: 07/12/2016 by Anonymous
The person that conducted our tour was nice and knowledgable they just did not seem as engaging as the community we choose. The building was big, impersonal and felt like a big hotel.
Really like the facilities ...reviewed on: 05/26/2013 by A Place For Mom Customer
Really like the facilities and the neighborhood. The cost is probably not within our means.
Good Looking Communityreviewed on: 01/11/2017 by Anonymous
I had a decent tour of this community. I toured it for my father and his needs. Everything went well, and I enjoyed my tour. From what I saw everything looked nice, and well-kept. The staff was friendly. It was a good experience.
High Price, Low Valuereviewed on: 06/10/2016 by CaringFriend
I have been visiting Skyline weekly for the past 6months to assist a friend who is a resident at the Terraces. I find this place to be WAY over priced for what is offered. Residents are paying for a 5 star experience and generally receive 2 star service at the most. Staff is friendly and kind, however, the place is woefully understaffed (and staff are severely underpaid). The result is missed medication times (delivery sometimes late by more than 8 hours), missed room cleaning (by more than a day), poor meal service, non-responsiveness to calls for assistance and/or service. Also, meals consist of a disproportional amount of processed foods and very little fresh produce. Nutritional content is low and quality of food is equivalent to a chain restaurant like Denny's or Shari's. Cultural activities are plentiful and generally good, however, exercise classes are geared to the lowest level of ability and are not at all sufficient for maintaining and building strength, balance, and flexibility. There is little to no effort made to generate a neighborly feeling among residents. If a resident does not make an effort to socialize and make friends, they will be fairly bereft of companionship and friendship here. I'm sure a nice profit is being made... I question their mission... is it solely about profit or is it about a high standard of service and quality of life? With the money they bring in here, they could have a higher proportion of skilled (and well-paid) staff: Whole Food Nutritionists, Chefs, Personal Trainers who are Physical Therapists and Geriatric Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Social Planners, a large vegetable and herb garden (they have the outdoor space for this) for residents to garden and partake of, daycare on site for staff and interaction of children with residents, resident pets, the possibilities are endless.
