Not perfect, but a friendly, healthy environment for a loved one.

Overall I think for any place like it, a patient needs an advocate and someone to look out for them on a daily basis who is not afraid to ask questions and keep things going. The staff are always willing to help. It's just sometimes you have to point things out. Cleanliness has been a bit of an issue, likely because they're short-staffed. The staff they do have are wonderful and very friendly. I know they're doing the best they can. Our loved one says the food is good, and he's actually eating it and has gone from being underweight to gaining weight. Activities are good but a little limited due to Covid.

I would recommend

We chose Colonial Gardens because ratings were better and it is a smaller facility that is specialized for dementia care. The room sizes here are good, they have private rooms and shared rooms available as well as bigger ones so they have options to choose from. I think that the administrative staff could improve on communication, it is a big problem when it comes to any changes going on and they have dropped the ball a few times. Overall I would recommend to others looking.

I would not recommend this community

We actually the took our loved one out of the community because she was not receiving the care she needed. She constantly got UTI infections, and had to go to the emergency room. They pretty much kept her to her room and down in her bed with the medicines she was taking. We do not think they checked on her as much as they said they would, and there was also a constant change in staff.

A good community

I have noticed that every time we visit mom's room is clean and she is well cared for. She does participate in some of the daily activities. The food looks fine and they offer three snacks a day as well as meals. This community offers good care and it is priced right for us.

Best of the best

I moved my Mom here in June from another facility due to frequent falls and ER visits. My Mom has not had one fall and the alarm system in her room will immediately notify staff if she does fall. The staff and caregivers are very attentive, lots of activities for the residents and multiple common area spaces for tv, activities, etc. I wish I had known about CG when I first moved my Mom to Columbia.

This is a 5 star community!!!

This community is very clean and it is designed for memory care. The staff are very very attentive. I think the food is good and they are trying to accommodate her dietary needs. They offer activities such as coloring, bowling, making soap and singing.
