  • Secure site, but limited "memory" care & stimulation

    We were fortunate to find Cascade Gardens "Memory" facility at a time when our sister hadn't been approved for Medicaid yet, and they consented to take her as we waited. It was a safe place for her when she couldn't take care of herself in her apt. She went to 3rd floor, where the sweet attendants were very caring and hard-working in feeding, changing, dressing, showering, etc. the residents. But normally there are only 2 attendants, and they need more for the 18-20 floor residents! My biggest complaints were that the over-worked staff couldn't work on sanitation (washing hands after lunch), couldn't shampoo often as was needed, and there was VERY little in memory activities for these later stage residents, or even diversions. Turning on the TV doesn't count, nor just being allowed to wander the halls. First floor residents, not as progressed in their disease, receive much better activities, stimulation, and interactions with staff. We ended up signing sister up for Hospice, and moving her to [removed]. It pays to look around for alternates if your loved one is at an advanced stage.

  • Not the right fit.

    I toured the Cascade Park Gardens. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and they answered all of my questions. The facility was clean but it did look like it needed some painting done. There were two residents to a room and I was looking for something more private for my mom.

  • It Is Fantastic Here

    We are pretty sure we are moving our loved one here. The residents are happy every where you go, there not a face that looked unhappy. I got to view all levels of the facility and I did see they were clean an up-kept. The community is like a hidden gem, it does not look like the typical community but is truly a wonderful place. I most like there are activities and outing available for our loved one. Overall the staff put forth the best effort to keep all residents happy
