  • The next best place to home

    Compared to other senior living communities, Country Squire is very clean. The staff here really seem to genuinely care about the residents. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Country Squire is on lock down. As a result, they held a parade for Mother's Day so that all the families could drive by and see their loved ones. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff has done a great job of protecting the residents and giving us regular email and phone updates about their safety. They are also very willing to answer any questions we may have and are always willing to communicate with us. When we did need to visit during the lock down, the staff was good about ensuring we were showing no symptoms and we saw all staff on-site wearing safety masks. For the care my mother is getting, Country Squire is definitely worth the price tag. Before and during the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing community lock down, they have been very proactive about providing entertainment for the residents, making sure to bring activities to them since they are mostly quarantined in their apartments. The food at country squire is excellent. There is a wide variety choices, much like a restaurant, and the way the dining hall is set up means it is easy for the residents to get to know each other and build relationships. We appreciate A Place for Mom helping us through this process and finding Country Squire. My mother is better for it!

  • I have no complaints with this place

    I’m very happy with this place and the care they provide. The flu has been going around and once a few residents got it, the facility shut down the dining area and started serving the food to the residents’ rooms to keep from everyone congregating and getting sick. I think that was a good decision on their part. There were a few times where I wasn’t able to get in touch with my Mom and the director, [Removed], personally went to her room to check on her. To me, that says a lot. Everybody works together to make sure everything runs efficiently. Every member of staff, from the housekeepers to the director, is very involved. They aren’t just hired help, they’re like family. Part of the rent the residents pay includes a bus that will take everyone into town for shopping or to doctors’ appointments. It really helps everyone continue to feel independent. Housekeeping comes by and does a light cleaning once a week and a heavier cleaning every 2 weeks, including removing and washing the linens and sheets and then placing them back on the bed. The facility does some really great things for new residents as well. They’ll assign 2 people (typically a husband and wife) to the new resident that act as ambassadors. And for the first month, anyone in the family can eat with the resident for free, and then the rest of the time it’s $6. They really encourage family members to come and have a meal with their loved ones so they can feel comfortable about them being there. The dining area looks like a restaurant, not like a nursing home, and they serve the food like a restaurant as well, with a wait staff and everything. If the staff doesn’t know the answer to something, they’ll find out for you instead of just passing you around. Anything I’ve asked, they’ve jumped right on it. To live here, the residents have to be pretty independent and are responsible for remembering to take their medications (I set up a system of alarms on my Mom’s phone so she wouldn’t forget). The rent also includes emergency buttons that contact members of staff (if an ambulance isn’t needed), which saves on medical bills. They’re very accommodating and I highly recommend them.

  • So far, so good!

    The first 3 to 4 weeks were tough but I had so much going on at the time that I was moving in. Now I am getting settled in and I think it has been a good fit overall. I have housekeeping once a week for my apartment. They serve 3 meals a day and they provide plenty of food. The only problem is that I am diabetic, and the waitresses don't seem to care much.
