When we first visited we spoke with [name removed] who is within the management team and she spent so much time with us and really helped us with the transition.

About the community Avalon House on Woodland Drive

We are known for providing dedicated memory care programs as well as following the philosophy of aging in place. Our intent is to provide senior citizens with the comfort and support they need on their terms. Amongst our services are access to hospices care, respite care, and of course aging in place. Because we are committed to meeting the requests of our residents we allow both dogs and cats in our center. For this we were awarded a 2012 Best Pet Friendly award. While we understand the risks of smoking - it is allowed strictly outdoors in specific areas. For those of our residents who identify as vegetarians we have a vegetarian menu in place. Because we are an Alzheimer's Care provider we strive to allow the best combination of privacy, independence, and support. To that end we have private bathrooms for the residents, several of which are wheelchair accessible. We also have a robust health staff. Not only are there nurses onsite, but a doctor on call.

Tour of Avalon House

We toured this facility and really liked it, they just did not have an opening when we were needing to place my loved one.

October 20, 2021

Thank you so much for your kind review. We always feel it is important for families to tour as many communities as possible so they find the right fit for their loved one. What may be right for one resident, may not be for another. I am so glad your family did that and found the place that is best for your loved one.

Our Tour Experience

It was good, but I was expecting more showing on a virtual tour vs. talking. It ended up just being a discussion with one staff member. It was a great discussion though. It gave me enough information to know that I would consider them if I decided on long term care vs. home care.. They seemed to have a very low patient to caregiver ratio. It seemed like they were set up to make sure that the person being cared for would have continuous care. I just wish I could have seen more of the facility on the tour.

Would recommend this community

Avalon House is very clean, and we liked how this was a house and not a large community. It had a limited number of residents, and it was quite. We thought our loved one would be most comfortable here. Overall it was a great first impression.

Affordable care for dementia

Nice group home setup, max 8 residents, in a "McMansion" home on a quiet street, good for residents with dementia. Spacious open kitchen/DR/LR setting good for family visiting. Currently this house (among others in small Avalon chain) serves dementia residents, and the price is excellent for the care, nearly half the cost of nursing home. Attractive environment inside, clean, and no smells other than aide [name removed]'s good cooking. Two main live-in aides are easygoing but attentive, setting a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We moved Mom and Dad there recently since our 24/7 aide setup at home couldn't handle bed-to-wheelchair transfers anymore for Dad, but Avalon staff managed to do it, so Dad was able to wheel around again. (Dad passed away recently after six weeks there, but I'm satisfied that he received excellent care.) Avalon has an efficient setup, and staff are thoughtful and flexible in figuring what works best for the individual. They know what they're doing. With live-in staff, care is consistent, and they know residents' habits well. Lovely people. One daughter of a resident we met said her mom has been there five years (a testament in itself) and without one bedsore. I'll be telling friends about this place.

Management - [Name removed] - was extraordinarily kind and compassionate. Home was comfortable with a clean pleasant atmosphere. Caretakers we’re engaged and upbeat. Kitchen smelled delicious from breakfast and homemade chicken soup for lunch. Price was reasonable and relatively stable.

We don't have much experience with these sorts of places, but so far we have been very impressed with Avalon House. It is a nice looking place, the people are friendly, and they seem to be taking good care of my loved one.

so far so good

I think the move-in process could be a little bit more streamlined, as the process was a little bit unorganized. It would have been helpful if they had an organized process to get us acclimated and let us know what we were facing and what to expect. The owner there is really great though, and keeps us informed and is quick to respond any time we have any questions. Overall it has been a very positive experience. So far so good.
