  • Terrible place with simular state inspections.

    I visited my mother in law around 6 months ago. My wife and I noticed how dirty the facility was, sticky floors, a urine stained couch missing a seat cushion in a hallway and trash on the floors. Asked staff to review state of MO inspection reports. By law, they need to show to anyone who asks. They refused and had no idea what I was talking about. Checked out her shared room. Had broken off wall toilet paper holder, no paper anywhere, 2 nom working lights. They then told me to leave or they would call PD.

  • A fairly new facility. Very attractive; the open kitchen is beautiful. (Oddly, during our visit at 11 a.m., no one was cooking or cleaning in it.) They seem to be short on front office staff -- the single staff member we saw was handling a conference call, so the director of nursing conducted our tour. The central area is set up with rows of recliners -- great for watching TV, but not good at all for interaction with anyone. Most residents were at the dining tables, getting manicures. Rooms are nicely sized; the bathrooms were over the top. This was the most expensive facility we've toured, but we couldn't come up with any reason to justify the expense.

  • Avalon Memory Care is excellent

    We found Avalon Memory Care after an extensive search and unfortunately after much angst and frustration with low quality care at other facilities for our mother. Avalon's model is excellent in providing attentive care for those suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia. Ratio is 1:3-5. The small community allows the staff to get to know their residents and care for their individual/specific needs. The facility's home-like environment makes the residents feel secure and as they are part of a family. The food is prepared and served family style, not institutionalized. My mother re-gained an appetite and quickly responded positively to the staff and enjoyed the activities. We had peace of mind that she was well cared for and did not worry about her being left alone. Interestingly, she immediately stopped the 'wandering' behavior that previous facility said was such a problem. Unfortunately, mother died within a few short weeks after moving into Avalon. Our greatest regret was that we did not find it sooner for her to flourish and enjoy what time she had left. [Name removed] and her staff are skilled, joyous and loving. We felt cared for along with our mother. I highly recommend Avalon. Take a tour and find out for yourself.
