Our family had an in person tour and we really loved the Maples we wanted our loved one to move there, but convenience wise the rooms they had available were just to far away from the action. However it really is a different place, it reminded us of an old Victorian eclectic house that would belong in Cape May. It looked like a lot of fun, and like a neat vacation home. The residents we saw looked really happy, we saw them exercising. The dining hall is very cute, the building itself is very nice and definitely something I would consider myself for the future. Also the staff members we mean't with were so pleasant.

I really liked the openness of the facility and ability for residents to go outside. They have a garden area as well where the doors were always open. The facility is all on one floor and in villages, it is not institutional and more home like. It is a smaller place so it is more intimate which for me was a big factor. I would definitely recommend to others who are looking.

In [date removed] my father passed away while both parents were living in NC. Knowing Mom would have to now live near a child, she chose to live near me. I gave her a year after my father passed to make the move not wanting to uproot her so soon after his death. I talked to marketing at a couple of places and got floor plans for her and she choose Senior Commons at Powder Mill. She had wanted to live in independent living in a two-bedroom apartment. In August she fell and we decided it would be best for her to move more quickly and not spend a winter alone in NC. What was available for her at the time was a two-room suite in assisted living. We took it and prior to her even going into the suite, my husband and I got her furniture situated so when she walked in, it looked like home. She was so comfortable there that she never went over to independent living. In the 7+ years that she was at Senior Commons, she was treated with respect and care. She never had an unkind word to say about any of the staff. The only complaint she had when she first arrived was there was too much salt in the food, and after a town hall meeting where it was brought up by several residents, that was rectified. As my mother was nearing end of life, I feel like the staff took me under their wing to make sure that both of us were comfortable. It was a difficult time and they helped me get through it. They became family. This year has been difficult for all. I can’t imagine what they have gone through, including employee turnover, COVID with the residents as well as staff, ability to care for everyone the way they would like. But through all the years and especially this one, the right decision was made for Mom to live out her life at Senior Commons. And I thank them for the care they have shown.

I play music at Juniper Village, approximately twice a month. The residents are super friendly and love seeing us come in to play. When we get a chance to talk with them, they tell us their stories. The building itself has a warm friendly atmosphere. I can tell the residents are treated well because they all come out to hear us and look happy. We play at many retirement homes and not all residents are well cared for and happy at the others; you can tell from talking to the residents which places are good and which are not. Juniper is great!

From what we are able to see of the community it is clean, and from what we have heard the food is very good. The activities are still pretty limited, but the activity schedule for when they are not in covid times seems like they are very exciting. The residents can take trips downtown, they can take the shuttle to and from doctors appointments within 10 miles, as well as a couple trips during the week for groceries. They have great amenities and we would recommend Sunrise community to others families.

I can't say enough good things about Tribute. When it was time to find a community for my father, I was shocked at how aggressive many communities became. My phone rang off the hook and my email inbox flooded. They said "we're looking out for your father," but really I felt like it was all about money and filling a bed quickly. With Tribute, I felt like I had found my support system. There was no pressure. It was on my timeline. They cared about my father's and my family's needs. They guided me through the process seamlessly once I decided. The place is gorgeous. Like a fancy hotel or upscale apartment. They have lovely outdoor spaces. They have activities going on all the time for residents to enjoy -- walking club, movie nights, etc. The staff is sweet, kind, responsive and caring. They are always happy to assist you with whatever you need. They are keeping residents safe during covid. I know my dad is getting amazing care. He is happy. I am happy. My whole family is happy.

Overall it's been a great experience. My family was very concerned about placing our loved one, especially because she didn't really want to go. She always had the image of abuse in these types of places. But it's been a warm, family environment. She says the people there are very friendly. That's been a huge relief for our family, and we've been very happy. The only issue we've had is we opted to use their pharmaceutical company for her medication, and we question the billing sometimes. It seems on the high side, and they billed her for something we had already supplied. That's been my only concern. I would just recommend that people check very carefully that their billing is accurate.
