  • there are two buildings. pick the right one.

    Look CLOSELY at this facility. There are 2 very distinct facilities at Darlington Memory Lane, and they only advertise the better one. If you start out private pay and run out of money, then you move to the Medicaid building. The private pay (1081 R Mineral Spring Ave) location is gorgeous. They have researched best practice for dementia patients and decorated the building to reflect this. I can't speak to the care at that building, but the residents are always clean, well dressed, hair done, and looking their best. My parent is at the 1073 Mineral Spring location (the Medicaid funded building). There is no full time activities coordinator because this person spends her time at the private pay building. The residents appear unkempt most days with wild bed head and unshaven men. The residents are kept in one common room just watching tv all day. The occasional activities consist only of BINGO games, and maybe a trivia session. 90% of the photos of parties, etc on their Facebook page are of the private pay residence. It breaks my heart that there is such a distinct difference between the wealthy and the poor. :( The staff in the Medicaid building are all very nice, but its obvious that while they may have CNA certifications, they are not well educated in working with dementia and Alzheimer's patients. They definitely do not go above and beyond for their residents.

  • They were very helpful in helping with the transition of our family member. All of the staff was nice and asked more about their newest resident so they could help with the transition with them. I love that there are not set visiting hours and we are welcome at any time any day showing us that there is nothing to hide when it comes to the care of each residents and environment. I love how it feels like home, not a hospital.
