Review ofSojourner Place
5.0

The staff are extremely friendly. They make you feel very comfortable in the uncomfortable situation of bringing your loved one to an assisted living facility. My mom loves the food. She's happy with the activities. Out of all the places that I looked at / toured, this was by far the best. I am extremely happy with them and would recommend them hands downs.

Review ofStoryPoint Granger
4.5

My ambulatory and pleasantly forgetful Mother has been at StoryPoint for two years. It has been a journey for Mom to embrace "institutionalized" living. She was verbal in her disapproval to embrace her new lifestyle. After two years of constant attendance from the staff and nurses, Mom talks appreciatively saying, "they take good care of me and everyone is always nice to me". She may not recall names, but Mom is now ready to sincerely offer her gratitude for all those caring for her. I have great confidence in the StoryPoint management, administration, and all care givers. Mom has her personal hygiene needs met, her apartment is routinely cleaned, her laundry has been serviced. As Mom progresses in her aging process, I have been able to request more assistance for her needs. I am pleased with choosing StoryPoint as it is not just an "institution" for my Mom, but a community of caregivers that bring quality living to the residents that now call this place their home.

Review ofStoryPoint Granger
5.0

My wife and I decided to move my mom to Story Point Assisted Living in June of 2021. We chose Story Point because it was much more patient centered. The staff really cares about my mother. From the receptionist, to the nursing staff, to the maintenance staff, to the administrators they know who my mother is and act promptly to meet her daily needs. They design daily activities that encourage participation and cognitive stimulation. Mom is very happy about the menu choices that are offered at meal times. There are weekly bus trips, shopping excursions and even sightseeing tours. There’s a weekly movie night in a real movie theater- complete with popcorn! Mom enjoys making her own hairdresser appointments and she really likes the weekly opportunities to attend religious services. Story Point has been a wonderful experience for my mom. She has her sense of humor back and she is enjoying her life again. The patients’ needs come first in this facility and I am thankful for that everyday!

My mother is almost 94 and has mild dementia. She isn’t able to live alone any longer. She has been at Lake City Place since August 2020. She is very happy there and tells everyone that it’s a wonderful place to live. She goes to all the activities and says the food is good. They dispense her medication which another well known assisted living facility in Warsaw does not. This was very important to us as she got her meds mixed up before. I’m happy that she adjusted so quickly and is happy there. I don’t have to worry about her but just go and visit and enjoy each other.

Heritage Point is a very clean community we have had no complaints so far. The staff members and the care services are wonderful. Sometimes our loved one is not a fan of the food, and if he doesn't like what they are serving they get hot dogs or grilled cheese. We have been so thrilled with the activities so far, they take the residents out on small day trips.
