Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Looks appealing, but look further

My scores are based off of what we saw in the facility before COVID. We chose Prairie Hills because of the location, the layout of the facility, as well as the staff members. The room sizes here are on the smaller side compared to some others we saw. My in-laws have said the food has been an issue, they keep having turnover in chefs, so the food isn't consistent. Turnover does seem to be an issue at the facility, but it might be due to COVID. Overall, I would not recommend at the moment.

Home Away from Home

It is a very very nice place. The people are very friendly. There are a lot of opportunities for activities. You need to speak up if you feel your loved one needs more help engaging with activities. The food was good. The layout of the community is good. I was very pleased with the room my mom had, it was very spacious.
