  • Do Not Choose This Place for Your Love One!

    I placed my aunt in Addington on Feb 22nd and it has been the most horrible experience so far! The fact my aunt lives in Michigan and I live in Kentucky has been highly stressful because my aunt's needs are not being met and when reported, staff members say the right stuff; but they do nothing. Within her two week stay, my aunt has fallen at least four times; while being assisted by aids. The most recent fall of March 6th, left my aunt's face badly bruised and fingers on her left hand in intense pain; no x-rays were taken. I plan to seek legal remedy to flag this facility as lacking and incompetent in providing senior care. I regret placing my aunt in Addington Place.

  • Mom’s experience

    My mother recently moved into the facility. She has been welcomed by staff and other residents making her move easier. She continues to grow more familiar with everything and everyone helping to relieve her stress level. Hopefully her relaxation level will continue to grow as she becomes more a part of the community.
