Mom is safely moved to her new home.
They're very helpful if you have an issue. They listen and try to resolve it. They always keep you informed. The staff feels comfortable calling me and other family members to let us know what's going on with our loved one. They write down any instructions I have for them. They're very friendly with my mom, and will give her a little hug and a kiss. With the new delta variant, they're showing concern about keeping things safe for their residents, as well as staff and visitors. Right now they're requiring that all guests coming in wear a mask. It's a warm place, and my mom has settled in for the most part. They seem to really love her. When they call, they always start off by saying "Mom's okay," and then go into the reason for call. They've taken such good care of her. When she first moved in, her legs were almost black from lack of circulation. They're not like that anymore. She also had a wound from a fall, and they've tended to it so well that it's almost gone. It's a smaller community with fewer patients, so she can get more individualized care and attention. The location is easy to get to, and I've been very happy with them overall.

Did not tour as [name removed] called & I learned they do not have a space for a male, & are not a 'lockdown' facility. I don't like that term.sounds like a prison. Safe & secure for wanderers, yes, not lockdown.

Not the place for my parents!!
The staff where very helpful and welcoming to my loved one and I during our tour of there facility. They also had a lot of great information available to us and answered and questions we had for them in detail. There was just too many residents for my liking and I did not like that there was a main road right outside. My mother has a history of wondering around and there is no fence between the building and the road.

Reasonable rates.
Everything seems to be ok with my Mom at Drake Wood. She's fitting right in with the other residents. It's like a neighborhood home, ranch house. Only 16 residents. It's a convenient location for us. I think they do a good job and they have very reasonable rates.

Put your loved one into very caring & capable hands.
After looking at several facilities for my 91 year old mother, my sister and I looked at Drake Wood Manor and felt the difference the moment we walked through the door. The staff is very caring, professional, polite and smiling. Barbara is the house manager and she is just delightful. During our conversation with her we felt completely satisfied and knew this was the answer to our prayers. Mom has been there for 1 month and every time I go to visit, it is the same. No matter who is working at the time, you just know that they care for the people who have been put into their hands. It is a hard decision to put your loved one into a strangers care but this was the right choice and mom is doing fine. The food is great, the facility is clean, no odors, the rooms are very nice and the larger sitting room where we were able to put mom's lift chair is open, bright and has plenty of windows to see outside. On a scale of 1 - 10, I give it a 10! Thank you to "A place for mom" for suggesting and promoting this facility. For us, it is a perfect fit!

Very nice place!
Overall our experience with Drake Wood Manor has been a good one! The staff here is very friendly, and they've been very good about encouraging Mom to participate in their various activities and events. They've gotten her to do all sorts of things she wouldn't have done on her own! The facility itself is well kept and clean, and they've got a lot to provide for their residents.

I did not like it
I didn't like it, neither did my husband. He was there three weeks and he fell three times. As a result he was not there anymore. I had to get him out, plus it was private pay and I couldn't afford it. My husband falls a lot but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have looked at him more closely.

Nice and clean, but perhaps not enough night time help.
They are very nice and they keep it pretty clean. I wonder if they have enough help during the night time. They only have one on at night. She seems to be the cleaning person too. The food all seems to be frozen banquet type meals, nothing is home made. It's okay though, the people are pretty friendly.

I’d rate them a 6 or 7! My mom seems fine with the food. The community is very good for the price. It’s very clean. Everyone was very friendly. There could be more parking. It was a little challenging when we had all that snow, but we managed.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Michigan regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Michigan regulations for Assisted Living.
