Our experience with Senior Commons

I would want others to know that it is a beautiful facility, but when we could not be here and keep tabs on everything it is really hard to rate it. For the money we were paying, we did not feel she was getting adequate care that she needed. Before covid the food was excellent, she was very happy with it. Once the virus hit, the quality has gone downhill. They have had a lot of turnover of staff members/management.

Professionally ran, independent care

The layout of Senior Commons was very accessible for all the residents, it had nice grounds with nice gardens. Everything was kept very clean. This community had bingo, music, church services and would even take little trips. Our loved ones room was very comfortable for him. They did serve a lot of chicken for their meals, but the meals were always well balanced, even if you were sick they would bring up your meal to your room. The staff members at this community were always very helpful, very nice, and very professional. They were always engaged with the residents.

It was the right choice

My mom hoped to stay in her own home forever but when she decided it was no longer safe for her to be alone Senior Commons was her first choice. Over the years she had been to most of the other assisted living facilities and always felt this was the best fit for her. So when it was time we were so happy they had space available. Its been about six months now and she has been very happy the whole time even during the pandemic. Everyone has been kind and goes out of their way to be helpful.
