this is a first class place. excellent for the amount you pay. the only complaint is the consistency of the food quality. it all depends on who is cooking from day to day

I'm pleased with the care my brother is getting

My brother lives here and, so far, we’ve both been very happy. The most important thing, to me, is that he’s getting his medications, physical therapy, and 3 meals a day. I think he’s being taken care of very well. The food is pretty good and there are a few different options to choose from. They provide all kinds of activities like movies, shopping trips, and they’ll take the residents out to eat. Everything looks very clean in the common areas and housekeeping cleans his room once a week. I recommend this place.

Pet friendly facility!

I am extremely happy with this facility. Everyone here is just so great here. The staff is friendly, warm, and personable. From the top to the bottom, this facility is amazing and clean. They have a courtyard where my Mother can walk and it’s even lighted so if she wants to go out at night, she can. This community is also pet friendly and you can have a cat or a small dog. My mom is just so happy here. I feel like she is so much more outgoing and has a bunch of friends compared to other places. There’s a bunch of activities like happy hour, bingo, and a full calendar of things to do every day. I would absolutely recommend this facility.

Like A Beefed Up Nursing Home

I saw the Desmet when I was looking for places for my father. This place was not good. It felt too utilitarian, and there was not much in the line of decoration. It was really just a long hall lined with apartments. It was liked a beefed up nursing home, and the food was terrible. I would not recommend it.

Needs some updating!

The staff that offered the tour at Desmet Retirement Community were very friendly. They were very courteous and knowledgeable. They were able to address all of our concerns. The community was pretty basic for the price and compared to other communities in the area. The community seemed to be nicely cleaned. The community would benefit from a good update throughout.

not overly impressed

We toured Desmet Retirement Community. It was fine but I was not overly impressed. We ended up going with a different facility.

I am very happy.

I am very happy. If I had any problems they came and fixed them right away. They have lots of activities, there is something going on everyday. The food has been fantastic, and the servers are very nice. They have breakfast once a week, and you can get what you want. It's nice that I don't have to worry about so many things anymore. The other residents all seem to be very friendly. I haven't met a cold person yet. I visited quite a few of these places, and this was the one that struck me, I liked the overall atmosphere and thought I would fit in quite well here.
