  • Mixed experience

    We have had a very mixed experience with Mount Vernon of South Park. The place itself is not bad, for the most part it is clean and well kept, and the staff are friendly. However, during the sales process they made promises about the sort of services they offer, and those have not been delivered on. And I have heard the same complaint from other families I have spoken with with relatives here. As an example, they said they would help get my loved one ready for bed, but it turns out this isn't something they do. They also have a very high degree of staff turnover (which included the sales person who made these promises to us.)

  • Very nice community

    They're doing a great job at Mount Vernon of South Park! It's a nice looking, clean community, and all of the staff are very friendly. They really went above and beyond taking care of our loved one. They kept a close eye on her 24 hours a day, and put a lot of effort into making sure she was comfortable.
