  • I love this place.

    My husband's aunt is a resident at McCullough Place. It is beautiful, welcoming, smells fresh,and is full of joyful activity. It is exactly the kind of place where I would want to spend that phase of my life. When you enter the foyer, you are in the heart of the home. The dining room is off to the right. Lots of laughter and conversation. You will immediately be greeted by Sheila, a wise and gentle collie. She is immaculate and it is no small feat to maintain a collie. This is one of many indications that McCullough goes above and beyond in the maintenance of every aspect of community life. The activity kitchen is to the left. April bakes cookies with residents and residents can have their own gatherings at the small tables in the kitchen. One of the things that struck me most was that the majority of residents leave their doors open and there is lots of visiting between rooms. McCullough Place has the feel of a college dormitory--full of life and laughter--rather than a place where people are at the other end of life. My interactions with staff and leadership have been pleasant and timely. I always get an answer right away. McCullough has worked hard to accommodate my aunt. I am grateful for my experience there.

  • A kind heart can do special things with care

    I had to place a loved one in a safe home for her own well-being. She could no longer really take care of her everyday needs, the simplest things became a real challenge to get done. She needed help and it was hard to watch her diminish each day and see her frustration when things went wrong. To see a person change right there in front of you was heart breaking and I couldn't let it go on like that anymore. I got in touch with A place for Mom. After talking to them I contacted the Dr.and explained to him what I was seeing and he checked her over and agreed with me that she needed help. We got the name's of local facilities and started looking at what they had to meet the needs of Mom. After some discussion we decided to use McCullough House. The move in process was well orchestrated and the staff was right there to help with everything. When I moved Mom's personal from her house to McCullough House, they unloaded the van and straight to work setting up her room. I could not have asked for a better team of people who treated me so kind, "What a great team of caring individual's" I was so pleased with the way the people pulled together and I offer a heart felt gratitude to each and everyone of these kind, caring loving people. The place is beautiful and well kept. Mom was very calm and did what she was asked to do, it went so well. I had to leave shortly after she was settled in as best as could be expected considering being aflected with Alzheimer's disease, but all said and done she was nice to everyone. We sat on a couch and talk about her being there and not in her house and she would ask me about when she was going to her her house. I explained to her that she had to wait and see what her Dr.had planned she said she had see him. I soon had to go. She hugged me and was taken to the dinning room for dinner. This is a beautiful home. I haven't had a lot of time there yet, but my first impression is a good one. If you have someone you love that needs a caring, loving place, I can say at this time I'm quite taken by the overall idea of McCullough House. Best regards to you all.

  • good, but very expensive in my opinion

    The place is clean and the staff is very friendly, but there are a few things where I feel they could improve. One thing that I found when I was calling and getting prices is that they would give you the price of just the room and board, and did not tell you that there was another fee for care which could be just as much as the room. There were hidden fees, and I feel that they should have been more up front and transparent about the costs. It is very expensive, especially regarding the level of help and attention that mom needed. She was not as supervised as I feel that she should have been.
