a great community ans stay involved

the community is doing very good but I will tell you to always pop in unannounced and see how they are doing. The community is very clean and neat. I would recommend this community to others based on our experience.

I would highly recommend

We think the value is perfect and the residents can play ladder ball, and balloon volleyball. They can make muffins and they have winter celebrations and Christmas celebrations. For Halloween they had a costumer party, and the residents can play board games on the back patio.

Review of St. Ives Memory Care

St Ives has a caring and diligent staff that carefully monitors seniors with memory issues. They communicate well with guardians and family and have done an admirable job protecting residents from the Covid pandemic. It was the caring of strength of the staff that earned our business and I can recommend them very highly to you and your family.

Review of St. Ives Memory Care

The Medtech send daily caregivers took good care of my dad daily. They did the best they could. However, due to covid-19 we were only allowed to visit with him through a window. I think his final decline was from lack of touch from loved ones (his wife). When essential workers [name removed] was allowed inside the building, the director [name removed] told the barber to shave my dad's head without permission from me or my mom. My dad has never shaved his head! When we first put dad in St Ives we told the director that Dad did not have prescription insurance. That he received all his prescribed drugs through the VA. We were told that his drugs had to go through Guardian Pharmacy. There for a $3,000 bill was run up. Right before dad died, someone at Guardian had the smarts to recommend that dad's drugs needed to go through the VA. So I would say, that when a new resident is coming in, that the director should listen to the loved ones and consider that the VA is involved in veterans care. Had the director listened to us we would not have the a $3,000 Pharmacy bill left to pay. Needless to say this just infuriates me and I feel like we were bullied into a situation that could have been prevented.

Review of St. Ives Memory Care

My dad lived in a few communities before moving to St.Ives in March 2018. I used to worry every day, all day about my dad and the care he was or was not getting. From the very first day of him living in St. Ives, I have not had to worry at all! I am grateful every day that my dad lives at St. Ives and for [name removed] and her amazing Care staff. During this crazy covid-19 and I know he is in the best place, is well taken care of, and safe.

Committed Director, Great Facility

We would like to highly recommend [name removed] and St. Ives Memory Care. [name removed] is the Director of care at this memory unit facility. Almost a year ago, we were in search of a memory care unit for my wife's mother. The previous facility my mother-in-law resided in itself was nice, but there was little management and supervision of staff. Given that we were looking for a placement that potentially could be five years or more, we carefully considered our alternatives. We visited 10 homes and evaluated them in terms of quality of care, condition of the physical building, overall management and supervision, cost, and location. Bottom line, we asked ourselves the question if could we live at this facility. After all our visits touring the different memory units, observing interaction between staff and residents, and talking with both management and caregivers, the decision was clear-cut. St. Ives Memory Care in John's Creek was far superior to all the others. The only other one we liked was $2000 more per month. The St. Ives physical plant is nice, not fancy, but very well kept up. The staff was very attentive as we observed during a two-hour visit. But what truly made the difference was the Director, [name removed]. She runs a very tight ship which at the same time is highly attentive and caring. Everything was very clean. The staff was very hands-on with the residents. The staff was all in the dining room during the meals. During my entire visit, I did not see one staff member on her or his cell phone, which was the hallmark of the previous facility we were leaving. [name removed] is an RN and knows the memory care business. Whenever we called, prior to the pandemic, she always knew about the condition and care of my wife's mother. [name removed] locked down the facility early, which probably prevented many deaths. [name removed] is attentive to even the small details. When we were moving my wife's mother into the facility, I noticed one of the closet doors was off its track. I mentioned that to [name removed] and it was fixed that afternoon. Also, during this pandemic, [name removed] dedication to her residents has given us peace of mind when we could not visit. I really can't say enough good things about [name removed] and St. Ives. Both have not only met but far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend St. Ives Memory Care and it's fabulous director, [name removed].

At St Ives Memory Care (Medlock Bridge Parkway Johns Creek, GA)

My Mom was very happy here. The staff , food, activities, size of St Ives ,apartments and grounds are wonderful. Most of the staff has been there a long time. Everyone greets you. You feel like family. They were super helpful with transitioning my Mom’s care levels. We had some bad experiences with two other places and feel blessed to have found St Ives Memory Care in John’s Creek Medlock Bridge Parkway outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

ST. Ives deserves a 5 STAR RATING

My Mom had been in several assisted living and then 2 Memory Care facilities. We thank God for referring us to St. Ives Memory Care in John’s Creek, GA. This was the ONLY facility that did exactly what they promised. The staff there was like part of our family. The food was good, they have wonderful activities, and plenty of outdoor space. The staff was always responsive when we had a question. There was never a lingering odor from resident’s having a bathroom related incident. The family was always included in holiday activities. All of the other facilities said they had all these things but they did not! I recommend ST. Ives Memory Care to any one I meet that I hear talking about their elderly parents. They deserve recognition for all of their hard work and for how much they care.

My mom lived at St Ives for almost 2 years. The compassion and care that the staff provided was truly amazing. They treated her like family and for that I am eternally grateful.

Superior care for your loved ones with memory needs

They are perfectly conducive to the care my mom needs. The bathroom she has in her room is very accessible, as well as plenty of room for all of her belongings. The rooms are kept very clean. My mom says the food is great., what food is hot and always hot and what food is cold is always cold. What stood out to us most was the ability the community had to work with us with our financial needs and the specific care my mother needs. The staff is exemplary and cares for your loved one as good as or better then you would care for them at home.

The community is always clean and there is no smell. The staff all really seem to care about the well being of the residents. They do have activities available for the residents to participate in. We do feel St. Ives Memory Care is a good value for the price.

St. Ives Memory Care

All the common areas were very clean and there was never any odor; everything smelled fresh. The staff was always very personable with me as well as with my mother. Even when they didn't know I was coming, they were all very kind. I saw some residents get upset with the staff and even then, they remained kind. The care giving staff did a good job with communicating about any concerns or if anything went on that they thought I should be aware of. They were good with my mother's care. Great staff!

Great place

Mom has been at St Ives for 4 months. We chose this place because of the staff and they continue to exceed all our expectations. The staff really seems to care about the residents and mom receives a lot of attention, love and respect. Based on mom's health when she was admitted, we were not sure she would be with us very long. After a few weeks' adjustment, she is now thriving and really seems happy there. She has a big room all to herself with a decent size fridge & microwave, and we bring snacks and drinks which the staff makes she she eats & drinks. The food in the dining hall is also quite good! It's also nice that they have a secure outdoor courtyard that is open to residents and family. We could not be happier with our selection of St Ives!

A very accomodating place

My wife was at St Ives for a short period of time because initially she had a roommate. Then the roommate moaned as night so my wife couldn't sleep. the roommate then passed away and this traumatized my wife and she was not happy and wanted to leave. St ives allowed us to cancel our contract and I moved my wife to another facility that was closer to my family.

The Best!!

St Ives is the Best! We have tried 2 others in the area. Not even close to the care my Mom receives with St Ives Memory Care. I recommend St. Ives very much. Keep up the great work.

Old community

I was not very impressed with this community, it is old, dark and drab and there was not much going on. I knew that this was not going to be the best atmosphere for my husband.
