  • Monticello West goes above and beyond!

    Monticello West has gone above and beyond to help our family at every turn. Our father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and our mother was no longer able to care for him at home; her health was declining, too. Monticello West provided support and education for us as we tried to navigate this difficult transition for our parents. There have been many challenges and their compassion and support has met us at every turn. We are grateful for the care and concern they have given both of our parents, working hard to accommodate their every need. This facility has life, love and laughter throughout with many long term staff members giving their all. It is evident that our parents have had excellent care on their watch. Thank you for your dedication and the peace of mind we have knowing our parents are in good hands. Sincerely, [names removed]

  • Nice place, poor care

    Really not happy. Too many residents per caregiver. Caregivers are overwhelmed and can't troubleshoot any issues. When issues come up, the nurses all claim "I didn't know about it." No communication among the staff, poor supervision by the manager. Sales pitch was that resident would be well cared for, and additional staff brought in if needed, and that has not happened. Sales sells something great which the caregiving staff just can't provide. Very unhappy with the care received.
