  • The staff was truly caring and wonderful towards our loved one

    In terms of the overall physical look to this community is was not a stand out compared to the other places we looked at, however the people were absolutely excellent. The staff members were very good and informative with helping us understand what our loved one was capable of and not capable of. Our loved one was very difficult, she would lash out at people and would not do things that she was supposed to do on every level. We were not able to take care of her ourselves and every person we talked was very compassionate about caring for her, and they had an enormous amount of patience with her.

  • Helpful staff, under-prepared for memory care

    We chose this community because it was close to home and it seemed like a good fit at the time. The room sizes were on the smaller side compared to others that we looked at. The only problem we had was that my sister is young for a dementia patient and they were not equip to deal with her. They wanted us to come pick her up after 9 days. I would not recommend this community for memory care residents.

  • Home away from home

    Prior COVID they had games, they would take the residents on outings. They would make special meals for the residents on special occasions. My mom loves it! The reason why we chose Blue Bell community was because of the environment. It had a very open and inviting feeling. It felt like home!
