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!
