Memory care facility with a great community

I chose this community because it was recommended that my mother needed memory care. The care was very giving, but we were asked to hire overnight caregivers because she would get up night,which was an additional cost for us. The people were great, the care was great, and it was a very small community . The activities were good and as a family member I was able to visit everyday whenever I wanted to. The communication was easy. I was able to access the director whenever I needed to.... Read more

Good Decision

I thought I had already made my decision about where to place my mom and then I toured this community and changed my mind we love it here. Mom is doing very good here she is settling in and being taken care of very well. I feel much better knowing she is here. She is eating on a regular schedule which she wasn't before and she likes the food. The staff is amazing here super helpful and very nice. I would recommend this community.

Comfortable care!!

I have no complaints about the care that my wife has been receiving since she made the move into this community. The staff are all very friendly and always attentive to her needs at the best of there ability. I love that they have a in house doctor and a great nursing crew so I don't have to take her off campus to appointments. Overall it has been a pleasant experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

Good impression

We looked at this community during the senior living search for my father. It was very clean and had a good atmosphere. I wasn't able to try the food during the tour. The regular tour person wasn't on staff so the maintenance guy showed me around but he was very nice.

Work in progress...

I like the place and everyone is very nice, but my mother needs a higher level of care. The other day, my mother had not gotten any breakfast or been dressed and we I brought it up tp the director he was horrified. We are currently on the waiting list for memory care.

AlmaVia seems to be unique, in that it is a non-profit that was founded by a church, that celebrates all religions and also provides a strictly secular focus based on the residents' personal choices. With daily on-site registered nurses, and memory care if needed in the future, it looks to be the perfect solution for my mother in law, who is 93, still somewhat independent, but also approaching a point where she will need more care. There are also many opportunities for residents to be involved in a wide variety of activities, including resident "clubs", which indicates a level of resident interest that is rare among such facilities. We are very happy to have found AlmaVia.

Very Accommodating to Family

They are very friendly, have a lot to do and accommodating to the family. They try very hard to incorporate the new residents. My parents have been there a month and a half, The staff are very sweet and most of them already know my name. They keep in communication with me and the food is very good which is a big deal for my parents.

Nice but very expensive.

We considered this place when we were looking for somewhere to do a respite stay. They were adamant that my loved one needed to be in the memory care. We didn't think so and they wouldn't budge on that. They were also very expensive. It was a very nice place though.
