  • They are caring, safe, and accommodating

    The staff at Foothills Place is very friendly and helpful. My father said the food from the dining room is usually cold when served and not quite suitable for him. The community always smelled nice, however my dad's room never seemed to be deep cleaned, which meant there was often a layer of dust on the counter tops. Anytime I called with questions or concerns, the staff at Foothills Place was quick about communicating with me and always made sure to get back to me if I missed them or didn't get the answer I needed. In comparison to how expensive assisted living communities are, we felt it was definitely worth price. The care was good, however the community did forget to give my father one of his medications entirely. The staff made sure to always provide activities for the residents so they always had the opportunity to be entertained.

  • Best place at the time!

    Everywhere you go in the community it looks clean. The whole place has a very homey, hotel-like atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and seem to really care for my dad. The community wasn't entirely upfront about added costs, so our family is now baring the cost of some of his care and medications. Sometimes we do have to go into the community physically and discuss costs with them, which can be an inconvenience to our family. Care seems to be good for my father. With that said, however, they could be slightly more communicative. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff has been good about providing us with updates and providing tests to all the residents and staff. If someone starts showing symptoms, they seem quick to react and protect all members of the communities. Activities are fine for a lot of residents, however dad does not often choose to participate. When I have visited, I have seen other residents playing piano, singing, and participating in other games, which is great to see.

  • Good Care, Excellent Staff.

    The staff at Foothills Place seems to really care about the residents. They have a lot of activities to keep residents entertained, even now with Covid -19 when they can not bring in outside entertainers like they do under normal circumstances, they are keeping them very busy. It is a very well run community. My mom seems very happy at Foothills Place.
