  • Beware, stay away!

    Please be careful of your first visual of this place. It appears to be small and nice on the surface. My mother was here for nine months. She liked it in the first two months, but then the food went downhill and stayed that way. She constantly complained about the food and so did her table mates. When she would buzz for help it could take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour for a response. When she left to go home, it took over six months to get our money back and they did not refund everything owed to us with no explanation why. The people in charge are not qualified and the people in the corporate offices do not care enough to take care of their business. Do not stay here!!!! The activities director was great as was the Community Relations Manager. My mother did enjoy playing games there. They had lots of personnel turnover. Please beware of many problems at this place.

    Our Mother moved into Mackenzie Place in December 2018. She immediately felt at home and welcomed by everyone. She still loves it and her only complaint is that the menu items do not change. She was happy in the beginning but says she is tired of the same old thing. She loves when we visit and take her out to eat. We live out of state and have been so pleased and we don't have to worry about her care anymore.
