Bait and Switch
I am a victim of a Bait and switch treatment at this place. When I toured, I was given brochures saying we would have meals, housekeeping and activities. On [date removed] a memo was sent out to the current resident saying there was no housekeeping and meals would be one per day. That was never sent to me and when I moved in on [date removed], I signed a contract with the understanding there would be two meals a day and housekeeping. That has proven to be a lie. Do not come here. I will be moving out at the end of April. Please beware.

Management
Under staffed all the time. Food is terrible. Management doesn’t care about the staff or residents. Don’t put your loved one there. I toured the place about 2 months ago and I have a friend whose mother is there. I was there a couple weeks ago and couldn’t find anyone to help my friend’s mom. She was wet and smelled strongly of urine. Her room smelled like a toilet and her carpet was very dirty. They also never answer the phone. My friend and I went to his mom the other day and again she was soiled. When we tried to speak to the ED , she was very rude. She acted like it was our fault. Please don’t put anyone you care about in that facility.

Detrimental current living conditions - Water Damage and Pest Infestation
Management has to seriously do something about condition of Mill Creek Senior Living. Area is dirty and smells like urine. Independent living units are infested with roaches and spiders, mold and water damage and administration say nothing can be done. Hired a professional cleaner and pest control service, since administration didn't do services as promised, revealing a severe infestation of over 1000 roaches throughout the house, including eggs in electrical outlets, behind mirrors, and other areas. Items that were advised not to be opened at move-in were infested, leading to the disposal of personal belongings and pantry items. This unacceptable situation has persisted for over a year without resolution, despite numerous assurances and promises. We have also faced a breach of the agreement not to increase rent due to these conditions, as new fees have been added without addressing the residents' needs. Seniors living with can of raid to walk in their units? How fair is this?

Budget Friendly
My loved one is currently a resident at Mill Creek Manor and the experience has been okay so far. Some of the staff are great, but there are 2 in particular that are just plain rude. As for the meals, the actual food is good. However, they've served my loved one a specific food multiple times even though she is allergic to it. I think Mill Creek Manor is a good facility, but I would recommend it only for those with a tighter budget and/or lower care needs.

Improvements needed
If a friend asked about my experience with Mill Creek Manor (Independent Living), I would say that the grounds are great and the apartment is comfortable. My dad enjoys his neighbors. But he is unhappy there because he doesn't like the food or the folks who prepare it, and refuses to eat there. He is currently looking into alternatives.

I was completely satisfied with the mill creek experience. They helped in every phase of the relocation. The only issue I noticed for improvement was not monitoring the main entrance all the time. As a result we had issues of my family member trying to leave the facility for walks. I would recommend them to anyone.

Extremely high turnover in staffing - even beyond COVID standards. I think it's really a combination of things. Its a byproduct of the economy/Covid and their business model to keep the rates reasonable. It's probably the best they can do without significantly raising their monthly fees.

Be careful of what nursing home you choose
They did not feed my loved one, and they were not always well groomed/clean. They did not have enough staff. The residents did not get the care that they should have received. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

So pleased with our choice
The staff at Mill Creek Manor have just been wonderful to work with, our loved ones care has been so great since moving here. Her daily medication are given on time and physically she is so much better. Since she has been on a regular scheduling of three meals a day she is now in this new routine that is amazing. They have a hair salon on sight where we can reach out to them and schedule appointments for her, it is so easy. The activities are appropriate. We were able to secure a private room for our loved one and the value for the money is very reasonable.

Property Tour
The tour was good overall. The only thing I didn’t like was there was no place outside of a resident's room for family to sit except for at the dining room table. It would have been nice if they had another living space for family to sit and visit. Also the staff wasn’t as friendly as they could have been. It seemed a little wired, with everybody all over the place.

Contentment for my husband.
They have a true concern for the patients. After touring other assisted living locations, they seemed to be more like a business. And at Mill Creek, I did not get that feeling. They really take care of their patients and have concern for them. The staff is helpful, and everyone seems to communicate well with one another. The facility seems comfortable for my loved one, and he's happy there. Overall, it's just a good place.

Awful??
We toured Mill Creek as we were looking for memory care for my father. I am writing this to keep someone else from making the costly and very stressful decision we made. My father did not get a shower, his bed was not made and he lost many items all with his name inside. I had to ask for his clothes to be washed. We were there every single day so we were able to see how what was taking place. He was taken to the ER three times in two weeks and I was called when the staff thought he was with me. Yes- you read right. They lost my father?? Mill Creek Manor’s memory care is horrible and I would NEVER put anyone I loved in this facility. We pulled him out after two weeks. We even met with the board after his first terrible weekend when they could not find him and two ER visits. We discussed our concerns and were promised there would be import. We gave them a chance but there was NO improvement. Please don’t put anyone you truly love in this place??

Our Tour Experience
Mill Creek Manor was okay. I was impressed with lady who gave the tour and took us around. But I was concerned that I didn’t see a lot of staff in memory care unit. And I actually talked to some people who had experience with their loved ones there. Overall I just didn't think it was the right place for our loved one.

Happy with our choice
We chose Mill Creek Manor because it had a very nice independent living section. He is in a 2 bedroom standard size apartment and they also have an all inclusive meal plan. My dad really enjoys the meals that are provided, he thinks they have a great variety. We are definitely happy with our choice.

A Place for Mom has scored Mill Creek Manor 7.7 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score.
