Reviews of Southwestern Assisted Care Residence

  • Its all on the inside.

    I will start by telling you that my father is staying at Southwestern, and has been there for three months. I cannot say a bad thing about this place, however I can say from the moment you come in the door...

  • Needs assistance

    My father needs at least 3 or 4 showers a week. My father is not getting enough outdoor activity and he shouldn't be in diapers that they have him in.

  • Great activities

    My loved one was a resident here for a time, and there were quite a few things I thought they did well here. It was a nice looking place, and the care staff were friendly and helpful. They had a lot of music...
