A place that actually cares for your family.

So blessed to have our loved one in this place. They care about their residence and treat them like family. Our family member has been there since 2012. They have done so much to keep her healthy as they can. They adapt to the needs of each resident. We had our family member in another facility where we felt she was treated like a paycheck. Found out they didn't even have her medications right. Stanley house staff are on top of it. They recognize changes in her and contact the appropriate doctors to address her changing medication needs. Love Stanley house and all the staff!

We liked this community.

Mom only stayed here for a short time and only liked some of the things at this community. She liked the staff and the WII bowling. She was not fond of the arts and crafts they offered. This community is clean and it is a lock down community. The food was not good as she felt it was to mushy. I would recommend this community.

I've been happy with them.

I've been happy with them. The director was always really quick to answer the phone, return calls and answer questions, and was really helpful. They have a lot of doctors visits in the community, so that saves time. The staff is able to communicate with the doctor, since they see him everyday they are able to catch things quicker.

Great communication

They do a great job here. The staff does a great job communicating with the residents and their families. If there are ever any issues they'll contact you immediately, and are always willing to help you resolve any issues you have in person. They also really went out of their way to make my loved ones transition to living here as easy as possible.

They've been very, very good

It's only been about five months but they've been very, very good. They are very clean they've been very, very friendly. My mother is very difficult and they've done a great job, and have been very supportive of me. They bring in outside people to interact and play games or they bring in a husband and wife that do a bible study. They have red hat luncheons, they will go get red hats and then go to a local restaurant. They had a halloween party and a Thanksgiving event. They were smaller than some others and much more supervised, and they were really homey in there and I like that you just feel like they realy, really care. They are sensitve to those around them as much as they can be. The location and size was good. Its clean and homey and nice. it doesn't have that institutional feel. Their food could be a little more interesting. It's not bad but maybe could be a little better sometimes.

Really Nice But The Food Could Be Better

My brother-in-law is there and he likes it, he really does except for the food. The residents complain about it - it's good food, it's just not what they want. The community is really nice. It's comfortable and the people are friendly.
