Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Thankful A Place for Mom helped me find this good fit for my mom.

I felt that my mom needed memory care, the thing that impressed me the most about Journey was that is was a smaller size community. I liked that they have large rooms with their own bathroom. You really got to know the staff that was caring for your loved one. The community was set up in a square with a beautiful garden in the center. They have a very low turn over rate with the staff. My mom had a stroke during Covid-19 and the nurse was very kind and let me in to see her. The only negative was that the marketing director lead me to believe that she could stay there through the end of life and did not turn out to be the case.

Almost like home

I thought it was a very homey place. They have good food. The staff was generally good. You always had a different person helping you. The room sizes were good. They have a gardening room and a patio.

The Next Best Thing to Being At Home

Whenever I come there, I am always greeted by the staff as I come in. Even the residents were very friendly to my dad. The staff make it a point to know all of the resident's names. I like, and my dad really appreciates, the restaurant style menu for the meals. That way he can order what he wants. The rooms have individual thermostats, so my dad has control of the temperature, which is a big thing for him and is a really nice feature.
