Cindy - Loved one of resident/client
Love it here

My mother is here in residence. I love the facility. It is clean, healthy, and my mother is being well taken care of. I stop by 3 to 4 times a week. It had been an awesome experience.

Place is a Total Joke - Horrible Experience

Terrible services - patients are ignored and are over charged for things like bed pads that are never used. Patient therapy was a joke - total joke. A group of patients are taken to a large room (many in wheel chairs) and then someone stands up and does their physical therapy instruction. Can never find a nurse on duty - this happened to our relative and the patient in the other bed. We pulled our loved one from the facility.

New, clean facility, but lacking in many ways

Our family experienced both the Assisted Living and the Memory Care units. While the facility building is new and pretty, we felt the staff were inexperienced and unreliable and management was not empathetic to patients and families. A few of our brief thoughts over a few months were: -Incorrect ratio of medicine technicians to residents/patients. Caused hour delays in time sensitive medications being delivered, even when the facility was not filled to capacity. -Residents voices were ignored, no follow up after resident feedback meetings. -Kitchen/Food was subpar. Often did not post menu. -Little to no activities for memory care residents. Routinely would just see staff sitting and watching tv with residents as the major activity for the day. -The facility was very concerned with appearances, and not so much resident care and relations. Overall it's a clean, new facility that smelled good and offered some 'fancy' meals and activities for Assisted Living residents. But the minuses outweighed the pluses for us.
