My mother lived here for a few months...

My mother lived here for a few months while she was waiting for a space to open up in the memory care facility where her husband lived. The staff was generally friendly and helpful, particularly the front office/daytime receptionists and a couple of her personal care assistants (PCAs, I think they call them). However, twice my mother's toilet was clogged and it took days to get it fixed/cleaned up...even after I offered to do it myself while I was there and they declined. The entryway feels very institutional and dated, as does the building in general; multiple residents are typically sitting by the door and staring outside, begging/crying to leave, rather than being redirected and/or involved in some kind of activity. I viewed it as an acceptable temporary fix, mainly because her PCAs were attentive and we had limited options at the time - but it's not a place I would want my mom to live long-term.

This is more of an assisted living facility, not for dementia care. The staff does not provide the attention and care that dementia patients need.

I was very impressed with this facility. I love the layout and amenities. The staff is super friendly and very knowledgable. The facility is clean and the staff to resident ratio was very reassuring.
