Anybody who does not choose Mackenzie Place will be disappointed.

Mackenzie Place was incredible, we would highly highly recommend this community to anybody. During the time our loved one was there they took great care, they did such a wonderful job. Our loved one loved the meals and the activities. They were somewhat loose on the covid restrictions, so our loved one was able to get out of his room and watch TV in the big room, The staff was incredible, the facility is beautiful and well maintained and very clean. They were so accommodating during the pandemic, and they knew isolating the residents was not the way to go which we really appreciated that. At one point they had a contest between the residents, so they wanted each residents to submit a recipe for them to add to the menu. Our loved one had picked out his recipe but ended up having to go to the hospital and passed. Even though he has passed away the community still wanted to have his recipe on the menu for everyone else to try. Our loved one had said to us at one point that we could not of found a more perfect place for me to live.

personal care

Make sure you stay on top of their care. They get busy and it's ok to call back. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The community is neat and clean and they have lots of activities for the residence to participate in. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

The tour director, [name removed], was outstanding. Nice curb appeal, friendly to residents, garden area and facilities clean and appealing. Room was well maintained. [name removed] listened to my mom and didn't interrupt nor dismiss her with me present. She provided my mom with the dignity she deserves.

Highly recommend

We chose the facility because the staff members here were so friendly, they introduced us to everyone and everyone stopped to talk to us.The facility is so comfortable and homey and it is not as large as some others we looked at. It is a more intimate setting which we really liked. It was set up in a square and there was a nice courtyard in the middle. We were very pleased with our experience here and I would recommend them to others looking.

Good experience

We chose Mackenzie Place because of the location of the facility and the lady we met with answered all of our questions and was very friendly and helpful. I feel like they did a good job taking care of her and were very attentive. When she first walked in the first thing she said "wow I get to stay in this beautiful place." Because we moved her in during covid there was not a whole lot of stuff going on that is why the activities score was lower. We have had some issues getting some bills after she passed away, but overall I would recommend to others who are looking.

Mom loved it here

We chose Mackenzie Place because their community relations girl we talked to, she sold the place with her kindness and demenour and you could tell that she really cared. The room sizes here are very spacious. My mom absolutely loved it here and I would highly recommend.

Felt like family

What stuck out to us about Mackenzie Place was it was close to my moms home, it was a small community but very cozy, and it was highly recommended. It was definitely the best one we looked at. I think the room sizes were just fine for my mom. The staff members here were great, not only to my mom but to our family as well. They did a lot of neat activities here as well and always had things for residents to do and they were always trying to get them involved. I would definitely recommend to others looking.

I Wish Communities Would Take Medications Seriously

The staff were nice and committed. They decorated the community very nicely. I believe this was head and shoulders above the other communities I looked at. I am so glad we got to go Mackenzie Place. There was a problem we had was the medication distribution. The nurse didn't let me know that it was my responsibility to call the doctor. There was a break down between shifts and the administration team and the family of my loved one. The doctor never came to see my loved one during their stay in the community, until the very last day. I had to call the doctor myself to come and see my loved one. The doctor was very causal and was in his golf clothes. I thought this was unusual.

good place for my mom

the only issue I had was they tried to charge us for an extra month so make sure you watch your bills. The facility was clean and well taken care of. My mom liked the food and the room size was ok. I would recommend this facility
