Not a fit for a dementia patient - more of an assisted living

The care was inadequate for someone with severe dementia. The problem is they don't have a doctor on site, just one nurse who I believe isn't even an RN. This was just not a good fit for my loved one. It might be a good fit for others with less care needs. Basically all they know how to do when someone starts having a dementia-related outburst is call 911. They're not set up to deal with that. But they didn't really say that upfront. Had I known this, it would have saved everybody a lot of trouble. Intake was a problem too.

I'm hopeful

We chose Drake Terrace because we took my mom her and she liked it, it was in a close and familiar area, and it is a medium size, not too big not too small. The facility also looks very nice and the staff members were very easy to work with. The room sizes here seem plenty big for what she needs. We have not experienced much yet but their social activities are starting to open back up, so we are excited about that. I would recommend to others looking.

A Happy Resident

On [date removed], I became a resident of Drake Terrace. From the first day, I felt at home. My apartment is lovely and comfortable. The staff is wonderful.....kind, patient and helpful. Even under the restrictions of Covid-19, they manage to provide activities while maintaining safety. Now that the dining room is open for dinner, I have met many friendly residents. I look forward to many happy, fulfilling years at Drake Terrace.
