Tablecloths and fine dining

My Mother has been at Medlock for almost 4 years. She is on her way to 100 years old. Medlock is like living in a small mansion. It has all the amenities you would like those you love to have. Moreover, the extra care during the pandemic made us confident that Mom was getting good care. Medlock was strict on visitation protocols and we appreciated that even though it was stressful not to be able to be less than 6 feet away. Congratulations to Medlock for getting us through the pandemic and back to visitation WITH a tad bit more freedoms during visitation.

Outstanding care

The majority of Assisted Living facilities have experienced trauma on some level during the COVID pandemic. It did not have to be if we had received truthful and strong leadership. Medlock Gardens had stringent protocols beginning in [date removed]. Medlock's staff brought the facility through this pandemic with very few losses. The staff took excellent care of its residents. It did not willy nilly rush them off to hospitals and cared for them on site in a professional but caring way. My Mother is 97 and she was the recipient of that attention. She survived and we are appreciative. She has been at Medlock about 4 years, It is like a home. The dining is like a 3 star restaurant....table cloths and silver.

This has been an overall positive experience

We think this community is very clean, we have been very happy with the care services provided. Our loved one doesn't always participate, but from our understanding the activities are fine. Having looked at a number of places, what stood out to us most was that it didn't feel cooperate. It felt more like a home, and the meals the serve the residents are fine.

Wonderful Place

My father lived at Medlock Homes in Decatur. It was referred by A Place for Mom. We did not live in State so this was a big decision on our part. Best decision we ever made. He always felt comfortable. The place is so clean and all the staff makes you feel welcome when you come. For my father it was like living in a home and not a hotel, he never complained. I can't recommend them enough.

Improve The Care

My mom is okay living her but we are not satisfied. She is wet a lot and that is a big concern for us. They need to change her more frequently.
