  • Would not recommend this Independence Court

    At first when you walk inside the community it was extremely bright, it had a very welcoming feeling to it, but once you stepped in to the rooms they were fifthly dirty, the residents did not get treated right. The care services were non existence. Would not attend to the residents when they fell. It did not seem like the staff cared about the residents at all, or even care about their own jobs.

  • A very good place for a family member.

    My 90 year old widowed mother wanted to stay in her own house until the very last minute despite the efforts of the family. And then chaos happened, all the medical problems became active at the same time. Being at home was no longer an option. The family visited four or five facilities. We choose Independence Court for a number of reasons: 1. It was the only facility that had 24X7 RN on duty. 2. Their staff tenure is many times longer than the other places we visited. The day I visited, a cake was in the break room for a 20 year employee. The staff seems happy. 3. The variety of planned activities was good. 4. They encourage the residents to get out of their rooms. The residents seem to be happy despite a bad situation. 5. The call button displays in the halls were not always on. They seem to have enough staff. My mother is now deceased but her quality of life was good considering circumstance. Before you commit to a facility, I encourage you to take a tour. Plus, sit in various locations within the building a just observe for a few minutes: the dining hall, activity rooms, outside the nursing station, common areas and especially the hallways.
