My Mom [name removed]
My mother, [name removed], became a resident in late December 2023 at Dorothy's Riverview location. Beings that we kids all worked, we needed a safe place for mom to be once she came out of the rehab. The Lord truly dropped Dorothy in our laps! From the very start, I knew we found the perfect place. Dorothy even went to the rehab and met my mom and her baby friends and they had a blast laughing and talking for a few hours! Yes, 2 hours! Being an RN herself and focusing mostly on elderly care, Dorothy helped us with all of the details for moms exit from the rehab to adjusting again to real life living. From paperwork to meds, patience of a Saint, insurance, rehab and activities, she has it set up! Her ALF is spotless, warm and inviting. It's home. All the ladies welcomed mom so kindly and really made a fuss over her to help her adjust. Dorothy's staff goes over and above. Especially her [name removed] that became my mom's [name removed]! They were darling together. And lastly....GREAT food!!!

We feel that Dorothy Cares is a top-notch ALF.
My mother has been given exceptional care at this facility. The place is clean and the staff is caring. They make sure meals are prepared on time and the patients are fed timely. All residents appear to be content. I would highly recommend this facility.

Caring People
Our 93 year old mother has been with Ms. Dorothy for about 5 months now after leaving a facility that was very sub-standard. The caregivers are extremely compassionate and provide mom with a clean, comfortable environment. Since she is completely unable to care for herself (mentally & physically) they bathe and feed her good meals daily. Ms. Dorothy provides my sisters and I updates every few days and sends us pictures too. We try and visit her daily but we are not worried when we can't make it there for a day or so. Wish we would have found her sooner! Residents there have games and activities they participate in and really seem to love the place too. I would recommend this place whole heartedly!!

Got waitlisted but we are willing to wait!
Dorothy took care of my aunt a few years ago so I have visited one of her facilities and my family adored her! Now my dad needs a place for his care, except she is full and doesn't have an available bed for a male at this time. We are willing to wait till she has an opening, we believe her place is worth the wait.

Truly a place for mom
I first found Dorothy when looking for an adult daycare. My first interaction with Dorothy was very honest yet warm., was late 2021 during COVID. Mom eventually moved in as a resident in June of 2022. Dorothy and her staff immediately made her feel at home and of course my trepidation of moving my mom away from home was eased. Dorothy and her staff were always eager to share updates of mom with the family along with pictures and videos. The resident was always spotless and cleaned without any storing disinfectant smells. It was really warm and inviting. It did not matter what day or time I visited, it was always the same. The care given to my mom was exceptional to say the least. I went out of the country Christmas of 2022, feeling confident and relaxed knowing mom would be safe and cared for. Dorothy and her staff extend their to the end. Dorothy, [name removed] and [name removed] took time to attend my mom's funeral. That was truly special to my family an I. Thanks Dorothy & staff.

Gave us great comfort when our mom was given superior care
Our mom was getting confused and forgetful. We wanted to be sure that she was treated with dignity and in a cheerful manner. After disappointments with two other facilities, we struck gold with Dorothy Cares. The help is kind and thoughtful with great attention to detail. Having it run by a nurse was important too as my mom's meds were corrected with excellent results. It's difficult being 2,500 miles away. The staff would open emails for my mom and send me photos of her opening my cards and presents. When my local brother stopped in, it was always sparkling clean and fresh. The staff did special things for each guest, like my English mum's cup of tea. The owner hugged my mom and treated her like family. Cannot say enough nice things about Dorothy Cares. From experiences my friends have had, I know how rare it is to find such an inviting, safe, comfortable, and fun facility, much less one that is reasonably priced. Hope they are still around when I need senior care for myself.

My mother's quality of life and the transformation in her daily mood was amazing, thank you!
I can't say enough about the exceptional care my mom received with Dorothy and staff. As a dementia patient, my mom had been withdrawn and isolated. I needed help as a full time caregiver for years. Mom was provided diligent loving care and treated with dignity, kindness and respect. She truly received the best care possible as an adult daycare patient. She received daily meals/snacks that fit her dietary needs, supervision/assistance, medication management, physical exercise including guided walks outside with her peers. She thoroughly enjoyed socializing and participating in crafts, bingo, puzzles and other fun activities with fellow attendees. She loved spending time outside on the enclosed patio. I received regular progress reports/photos of my mom's days participating and having fun. I was made aware of any staff concerns immediately and solutions were offered to adjust for my mom's needs/interests. With Dorothy, you'll have the peace of mind and valuable care for your loved one.

Best place for my mom
My mom has been at Dorothy Cares for sometime now and I absolutely love it. The residential setting makes her feel right at home. The staff is the best that I have seen in any ALF that my mom has been at or we have researched, and we have researched our share in the Tampa bay area look under the hood and you’ll see it’s an outstanding place.
