My tour guide was [name removed], Community Relations Director. Cedarhurst was built in 2015 and until recently operated under a different name. The core of the structure is between the two wings. The main dining room is in the core area on the ground floor. Family & friends of memory care residents can dine w/ the resident in the main dining room. The main assisted living section occupies three stories in the west wing; memory care units are in the east wing and are located on the ground & second floor. To reach either of these units, you walk down a corridor that contains assisted living apartments. Access is through a locked door w/ key pad access. Apartments are spacious. Bathrooms are fully accessible. Each memory care unit has its own lounge, dining area, kitchen area and a couple of additional common areas. The second floor unit has a long balcony w/ seating & plants. The ground floor unit has direct access to a garden. Both balcony & garden face a wooded area. To access the garden, residents of second floor rooms must exit the unit, take the elevator down to the ground floor, walk down a corridor and be admitted to the memory care unit. This was the primary drawback I saw to residence on the second floor. A beauty salon and therapy room are in the core area and are available to all residents. Both memory care units are staffed by nurses 24/7. Cedarhurst does not have a doctor on call but having a nurse 24/7 outweighed this lack. [name removed] introduced all staff we encountered by name and title/responsibilities. All staff were friendly and smiling. She called residents by name and briefly chatted w/ a few. The Executive Director, [name removed], came to The Neighborhoods, the skilled nursing facility where my husband is presently, to do an assessment and make sure he was suitable for residence at Cedarhurst. I didn't want to choose Cedarhurst because it was the only place that met my husband's needs but because it was the best place for him to reside for the next 2-3 months and possibly longer. Therefore, I considered two other assisted living places in Columbia w/ memory care units. I rejected one w/out touring it. I toured one owned by Americare, the group that owns The Neighborhoods (where he has received excellent care). It had a doctor on call but nurses were only available 8 am-5 pm; CNAs and Med Techs staff the place evenings & weekends w/ a nurse on call. Therapy was available but staff came in to provide it and there was no dedicated therapy room. So I chose Cedarhurst because I am convinced it is the best place in Columbia for my husband.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
Our tour director was very friendly but the staff we came in contact with did not seem friendly. It looks nice and clean.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
Overall, we had a good experience at Cedarhurst of Columbia. One of my concerns were that sometimes it is hard to get a hold of them on the phone and get connected to the person you want to talk to right away. I would definitely recommend them to others looking.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
