- A variety of enriching activities

  • Welcoming community

    One thing I noticed was that there were areas in the community that I thought needed to be repaired. The laundry room door in particular had a dent in it and I thought that ought to be fixed. The staff worked really hard to make new residents feel comfortable. They reached out to me multiple times to make sure things were moving along well before my friend moved. They also reached out to me to make sure they knew how to arrange my friend's room once he got there. They were very accommodating and did a good job pairing him with other community members who they thought would be a good fit for him to interact with. I thought they did a really nice job with accommodating for my friend's care. He needed more assistance than they were able to provide, and they were very good about providing me with resources so we could bring in outside help to make sure he go the care he needed. They were also great about making sure the food from the kitchen was delivered on time. Although my friend did not participate in all of them, they always made sure to have activities available for the residents, if they wanted. They had lectures occasionally, bingo, lots of musical entertainment, and exercise.

  • Misleading advertising, corporate indifference. Improvements needed and rarely done.

    A review of earlier reviews from 2014 and 2015, indicates that not much has changed. Still high/frequent turnover in staff, especially with managers, kitchen staff,servers and housekeeping staff because pay is too low and hours are limited so they don't have to pay OT and offer any benefits (if they did, the owners and indifferent corporate HQ staff wouln't be able to give themselves higher salaries and bonuses. The servers are rushed so much it's difficult to have conversations and enjoy coffee at end of meal because the stacking of dishes makes hearing extremely difficult, even for those with "normal" hearing. There is no real activity room, so some activities are held in entrance//exit lobby, severely restricting exiting, entering and inconveniencing residents and guests. Elevator doors close too quickly jeopardizing the increasingly frail new residents, many of them who need or should have assistance. So called exercise equipment is ancient and often broke. Walkway around building has many slip/trip hazards with different elevations in concrete panels. Maintenance staff (1 person) can't keep up with workload. Signs for handicapped parking have been missing for over a year. Some residents using powered wheel chairs/scooters don't know how to use them and endanger other residents and guests. Printed menus very frequently differ from that day and times meals. Healthy grains, non-iceberg lettucea are rare. Organic, non-gmo, free-range etc.--are you kidding? When it doubt, use more salt or sugar. [Removed]
