Our experience

We chose Avalon Memory care because I like the fact they take care of their residents no matter what their condition is and how much care that they need. The room sizes here are good. Communication has been an issues, it is especially hard to reach the administrative staff. I would recommend to others looking.

Lack of proper supervision

I give them 2 stars for cleanliness. We were fortunate to live close by so we could stop in at all hours. One Friday we stopped in and my 95 year old father was being fed hot dogs - with something on the side that looked like chili. Wow! Soon after he fell, and we removed him to a location where he was supervised better. [name removed]

This disease is so tough on the resident as well as the family member. We have now been taking care of folk afflicted with dementia and related disorders for 24 years. One thing that we can never promise a family is that their loved one will not fall. I have been right next to a resident when they have fallen. It happens so quickly sometimes. I wish you and your family the best.

My Father

I want to say how wonderful Avalon Memory Care was for our family. My father was at Avalon and in my heart I knew that our family placed our father in the right place. When our father was passing the workers came into his room to say goodbye to him, There were 2 workers that were not working that came to see him that night. The workers love their patients like family. I know that Dad was care for like family. Avalon Memory in Arlington was great and can be trusted.

their care is excellent

I think their care is excellent at Avalon Memory Care. My mother-in-law has remarked many times at how kind everyone is. She has been calmer and happier than she has been anywhere else. I will say when we first talked about moving in we were told there would be more support services if she needed go to the hospital and that ended up not being the case. I really am overall very pleased with this facility.

November 13, 2015

Thank you for the positive review. I absolutely love this location and the staff that make it what it is. Please feel free to reach out to me at the corporate office as relates to the comment about going to the hospital so that we can address it. A lot of what we do is behind the scenes to insure that your loved one receives what is needed at the hospital then transition back quickly to their structured environment at Avalon with people that know her needs and wants. I am happy that you are pleased with your decision. Take care.

pleased

The one problem I have is that they do not handle the laundry very well. They have lost a few of her clothes int he process, so things could be done more efficiently there. Other than that I have been very well pleased. The staff there is incredibly friendly and it is a very nice and clean facility.

could not recommend

My mother does not have memory care issues, and they assured me that there were others there as well that did not have memory care issues, that that was just the name of the place but that they had other such residents that she could interact with. That was not the case at all. The care services for my mom did not go good at all. My mom was supposed to be cleaned when she was not and had urine soaked sheets to sleep with, etc. The people there seem friendly and it is a very nice facility, but the quality of the care and the fact that we were misled on what to expect made it a very negative experience. I could not recommend Avalon Memory Care.

Response from Avalon Memory Care - 7204 Hwy 287

December 15, 2014

We have not been in business for over twenty years misleading people I can assure you. As seen by all of the reviews around this one, the vast majority of folk are extremely satisfied with our care in these smaller home-like environments. I can also assure you that our staff is top notch and we go to great lengths to retain our resident's dignity. I apologize if you came in one day to sheets that had urine on them. Sometimes when dealing with incontinence this will occur. I wish you and your family the best as you navigate care options for your mother.

A Loving and Caring Home

This center was my first contact with Avalon. I met with Michelle and she was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, but mostly compassionate. She referred me to Avalon in Irving, TX where we moved our Dad. From the moment we arrived, my siblings and I had no doubts that we had found the perfect place for Dad. Sue [Removed], Director, and the entire staff were simply wonderful. Sue always told us that she and her staff treated the residents as they would treat their own loved ones, and that was certainly true. I cannot express our family's gratitude enough. There aren't enough words. Simply suffice it to say that we would and do recommend this Care Center as the absolute best anyone could ever want. I appreciate this opportunity to share our experience with Avalon. My heart will always be grateful.

August 12, 2016

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. Sue was promoted within the company but our Director Catrina Cooper carries on the Avalon tradition of providing for a caring and compassionate environment. Catrina has actually been with us since 1997! Sorry for the delay in response but this review just appeared on this site for me to respond to although it states that you had written it back in 2014. Anyway, again, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to care for your father.

The facility is lovely!

The facility is lovely! They have a large quantity of staff, with a ratio of four staff for 11-12 residents. It's kept very clean, and the food is fresh and not frozen. It's way better than where she was before. The activities are the big thing, they have an activities schedule but they don't always happen. Other than that I don't really have any complaints.

Response from Avalon Memory Care - 7204 Hwy 287

December 15, 2014

Thank you for leaving an honest and informative review. You bring up a good point as far as activities are concerned. Although a schedule exists we have to take into account the residents at this particular location and accommodate their needs. Individualized or small group activities tend to assist with some of our residents mental and physical stimulation needs rather than the larger group activities. We will continue to find different ways to keep our residents activity levels up. Again, thank you for the review.

So grateful for Avalon!

My mom moved to Avalon in June after being asked to leave another memory care. The place she was at before only wanted to take care of people who sat all day or would stay in their rooms. My mom is still walking and she wanders. That is one of the reasons we could no longer handle her care at home. When we were looking for a place, the previous memory care just told us stuff they thought we wanted to hear. Once she actually moved in, nothing was like they had promised. That has NOT been the case at Avalon. They go out of their way to pay attention to her specific needs. The staff treat her like family and make us feel so comfortable and welcome. It's been a wonderful experience. I actually feel ok when I leave from visiting knowing that she is in good hands.

Things have been pretty good so far.

Things have been pretty good so far. It's very clean, and bright, and the staff is really friendly. I would give the food a four. When I was looking around, it was between two places, The people at both places were exceptionally friendly, they really represented their care well, and seemed to be really caring. The space here was really clean and bright and happy feeling, the overall environment is what made this the one we chose.

They are great!

They are great! The staff is very clean. Taking the overall care and the services into consideration, the price is very good. We have had good communications with them, it was better when Sue was there, her assistant Cheryl has really stepped up, she has been very good in Sue's absence. They are quick to get in touch with me, and have been quick to answer my questions. I've only had one complaint, and when it to Sue, she was quick to come up with a solution. I have been very impressed with the doctor there, Doctor Rivas. I've been very impressed with him, he calls and asks me questions, he really took an interest. They are very caring and very respectful. They don't have cords for around their neck, but they have monitors and all we had to do was ask. There hasn't been one staff member that I haven't been impressed by, they have been very patient and kind, and they just speak to the residents with patience and confusion.

I haven't been very happy with them.

I haven't been very happy with them. I haven't been impressed, considering the way that they marketed their facility. They say that they will do certain things, and they don't happen. I have found multiple accidents and messes that haven't been cleaned properly. I expect better attention to the cleanliness. I wouldn't recommend them. I really think that if you are very involved and really keep an eye out, if your loved one has an advocate for their care that will be nearby, it would be a good idea.
