  • Be prepared to supplement your loved one with different food

    We chose Governors Glen because it was strictly a memory care facility and very close to my house, that way I could go visit often. She went from a very large room to a single room here, so it was on the smaller side. One big complaint we had was the food. It was not fresh and by the time it was served, it was cold. They served things like hot dogs and french fries and did not offer any condiments to go along with the meals. There were also not a lot of activities that I was aware of at all, and I would pick up the calendar weekly. From what I saw, this facility seemed clean and the staff members were nice, but they were not very interactive with the residents.

    This community was spacious, it was kind of a unique layout. The rooms are on the smaller side. If someone asked, we would recommend this community to a family or friend with reservations, it would depend on the health of their loved one and the dementia phase they are in

    It is very rare when we visit to experience anything unclean. We have gotten to know most of the staff and they are all pretty friendly. The care they are giving my mother seems to be top notch. My mother does seem to enjoy a lot of the activities they have available. We do think Governor's Glen is a good value especially when considering other communities in the area.
