Beehive Homes Of Farmington

Both of my parents were in another, bigger assisted living place the past 2 years & I wasn't happy seeing things they neglected to do, or tried to hide, etc. I have never been a caregiver b4 & didn't know the difference, until I was "forced" by the 1st to move my parents. The sweet Beehive made room for my parents. The Beehive's quality of care is AMAZING & they go out of their way to help & care 4 our loved 1's, esp. since this Covid-19 shut down everything! I am amazed at the huge difference in their care compared 2 the last assisted living (which was awful). I LOVE the Beehive & ALL of it's AWESOME workers who love the elderly people they care for, which is SO obvious! Can't speak highly enough about the Beehive!

The caregivers genuinely care about the residents. I don't ever have to worry about my mom being taken care of. They're also very good about updating about any concerns.
