We chose Spring Hills Hunters Creek because it was the closest one to my home for the money and the director that I went through to get my mom moved in was excellent. They took care of everything and made the transition much easier. The room sizes here are very nice, they do also have options to choose from as well. Overall, they really care about each and every resident individually and they always call when there is a problem. I would highly recommend.

We love nearly everything about The Rose Garden, Mom is a little concerned it isn't all on 1 level however I did ask about evacuation plans in case of power failure and they assured us even in power failure or other emergency there is always 1 elevator in operation and that staff are specifically trained to evacuate wheelchair patients down stairwells. They have a large selection of activities so there would be plenty to keep mom entertained. Their 1 bedroom share plan offers a great deal of privacy and plenty of space for her belongings. they have scheduled outings which she can sign up to attend. there is an outdoor space where she can go for fresh air whenever she likes. and perhaps the best feature is the restaurant dining experience where a server comes to the table and takes her order from a menu of available items for the day. I was able to speak to a couple of the residents who had been there for more than 2 years one of them admitted she was having a bad day but that it was not related to her care at the facility, the other lady I spoke with had nothing bad to say at all said she had been there for 3 years and when I asked her specifically if she could relate one negative experience she could not think of anything negative. The only drawback to this facility for us is the distance from our home but if that is the only obstacle this place is at the top of our list for sure.
