Title it great activities and food from a friendly staff.

We had some initial difficulty with complicated medication schedule which is why the overall experience receives 4 stars. The regular staff people are terrific. (They get a four or five). The new hires don't seem to have the same mindset and levels of conscientiousness and dedication that the longtime employees do about the patient's welfare. New dining room, impressively, variable menu. Too much food at most meals. Waitstaff remembers quirks of every resident, for example, what they drink. That drink is ready for the resident when they get to the table to eat.. Activities - quite variable, appeals to residence with different interests, constant during seven days a week. Value for cost probably is 5 stars but I will give it a 4 because it is so expensive. However they are taking great care of my spouse.... Read more

Tour of The Falls

I toured The Falls at Cordingly Dam and it was excellent. The people were really great, and they provided me with all of the information I needed. They have an absolutely stunning facility as well. When touring around, what you want is for someone to be candid about their facility, as well as providing you with all the information you need - and they were excellent in that regard. We chose another community because of location, and also because I don't think The Falls would have been a good fit for my loved one, but that's to no fault of the community.

Wholeheartedly Recommend This Community

I would totally recommend this community to others. This is a true community, and is a smaller community. All the staff know the residents and families. The activities and the atmosphere is upbeat. My loved one is happier than she has been in her whole life. The Falls was able to assist with the transition of our loved one into the community. They have been a resource to us with any questions.

The Falls At Cordingly Dam

The community was clean. No matter what their job was, the staff would go out of their way to help out. And if they couldn't they would refer me to someone who could. My mother had private aids as well as the community's aids and they had some trouble with coordinating her care together. It took some time to work through the initial challenges surrounding this. The activities staff were terrific. They did a really good job with encouraging my mother to participate, which really improved the quality of her life. My mother also really liked the food and when we would dine with her, we thought the same.

A very nice location with lots of outdoor space for the residents and visitors. The staff was very knowledgable and engaged with the residents and visitors. The area for visitors to dine with the residents is very welcoming. The facility was well maintained. Parking during the daytime is limited.

Look elsewhere

All bells and whistles. There are more affordable assisted living facilities in the area where your love ones will be safe and taken care of properly. Recommend asking for a tour in the evenings or weekends

Great community

We've had a very positive experience with them so far. The staff in particular stood out to us when we were looking for options, they're very hands on and very friendly. There's some room for improvement with the food, but overall a very nice place.
