Both of my parents lived here

Both of my parents lived here and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was like family and would visit on a personal level and took great care of my parents. There were several instances where staff would come down and watch football with my dad or even visit with him about his farming days and different topics. It truly feels like home.

Helpful, caring, supportive facility

Whenever my loved one has needed something or something isn't quite right, the staff has always been right there to help resolve the issue, especially management staff. It's a small enough community that I feel like she gets the attention she needs. We came in during Covid, so I can't compare a lot of stuff. But they have transportation that takes them to appointments. The food is okay. It wasn't the best when we first moved in, with lots of casserole-ish dishes. But after the first of the year, it improved greatly. Activities have been somewhat limited with Covid, but they're starting to offer more things, such as exercises, crafts, and holiday activities. My loved one seems to be doing fairly well here, and I feel like they see her as a person and not just a room number.

Feeling safe at home

We chose Amelia Place because of the security that they had. The girl who was showing us around also had a big play in it, they were all very welcoming. The room sizes here are fairly spacious, they do have options on sizes as well. They have an inside outdoor area that was very nice and safe if your loved one likes to go outside that they can enjoy whenever they wanted. Overall, I would recommend this community.

Beautiful facility. Sweet staff. 80% of residents are Level 3-6. Does not take Medicaid applications. Small. Estimated 54 residents. Not in Mom and Dads best interest as they are independent living and need only minor assistance.

Amelia Place is caring and loving.

The care my mother has been receiving at Amelia Place is outstanding. They care about her well being and care for her as an individual. I admire the way they continue to engage the residents even though some of the residents are unable to participate. Thank you so very much for all you do for my mother and the other residents. I feel there are times the elders are not always easy to care for all the time. The staff certainly are doing an outstanding job. My mother is not an easy person to get along with at this stage of her illness but the staff continues to care for her in a very loving and kind way.

Review of Amelia Place - Council Bluffs, IA

Thank you for your loving care of our mother. We have not seen so content and comfortable since our dad died 2 ½ years ago. You made a huge difference in her life! We will always remember you for that.

Exceptional care and friendly staff

I am a home health care RN. I visit many Assisted Living communities in the area. I was very impressed with the staff, and especially the great care that my patients receive. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Amelia Place to other patients. The community is very clean and a great positive atmosphere!

Caring and helpful staff!!

I have had the opportunity of coming to Amelia Place for my home health therapy patients and the staff is extremely friendly. The resident I see for services is always saying how wonderful the care is she receives and I have witnessed it first hand. I go to several other care centers and the Amelia Place has by far the most helpful and caring staff.

Caring staff from The Top down!!

This community is a true example of family. My Mother had the opportunity to live at Amelia Place and at first hated the idea of moving out of her home but by the time she passed at Amelia Place she was telling everyone in town that this is the place to be and I still come visit when I am back this way because this staff cared not just for Mom but for my whole family. I recommend Amelia Place to anyone!

My dad moved in a little over a month ago, and we could not be happier! They treat him with respect, they joke with him (which he loves), they clean his room every Sunday and do his laundry too! There are many activities if he would want to partake in them. I am so blessed [Removed] came to Mercy Hospital that night and helped us with the process of moving him. We are blessed because of The Amelia Place!

Hardly worth a star. I once walked into this place and saw a girl popping meds while she was pushing the med cart. Saw residents in wheel chairs just sitting by themselves. The few nice employees they have, have nothing nice to say about the place either. Luckily I don't have any relatives here but a friend does and if it wasn't for this resident passing away I'm sure we would have pulled them out. This place makes rising sun look phenomenal!

If you don't have poa you are treated like a [Removed]. My parent is treated like a [Removed]. Residents are not treated with respect or like valued human beings. If you are there for very long and watch and listen you will see. There is not enough to do to keep residents involved. Health issues are ignored. Nurse is distant and unfriendly and unhelpful. The assistant director is completely uncapable of handling her job.

I would live here!

The care at Amelia Place is excellent and my friend likes living here. The food is delicious and they invite family and friends to holiday celebrations. The memory care unit uses tracking devices to help make sure the residents are safe. It is a lovely place that offers cocktails if they would like them. The community is clean and they do her laundry. I would highly recommend this community.

The staff are thoughtful!!!

The staff are thoughtful, sweet and invite her to take part in activities. They have a wide variety of activities at Amelia Place. They offer crafts, daily games and outings to places such as casinos. This community has a clean healthy environment. Mom is still adjusting and she thinks the food is ok.

Everyone Is Friendly

The staff members working at Amelia Place are very friendly with everyone and their food is really, very good. It does take a while for the maintenance team to get around to the residents' repairs though.

Best place ever. When I get to the point that I need assisted living, I will definitely check into this facility. My father seems so happy. The staff has bent over backwards to accommodate us.
