  • Excellent care

    The communication has been excellent. I receive weekly email updates or a phone call regarding my wife's status, which I really appreciate. The caregivers are excellent. They know my wife's habits , idiosyncrasies, and they understand her I chose this community because after I did a thorough evaluation and looked at 7 communities in all , I came away with the belief that this was the highest quality community and I have not been disappointed.

  • Mixed feelings

    The facility overall is beautiful & well kept. There are ample activities for those who want to be involved. The food is very good for this type of facility, good variety, & the 12 hr open dining and snacks allows a lot of liberty. Overall a good choice for independent living - more of a challenge when you have to move into assisted care. The medical director (RN) controls the care level assignments & it is rather unclear as to how they decide what price you should be charged - 1 day it's $400 then next day its over $1200. The caregivers (aids) seem to be kind & helpful, but the facility is constantly short staffed, so they are over worked & hurried/stressed. The nursing staff who handle things like medications can be rude/ condescending to the patients instead of respecting their dignity. Communication can be an issue. It has been hard to get an actual appointment when I need to discuss my loved one's care - just have to catch the director on the fly - which makes it hard to address concerns in full and get on the same page. If I had it to do over, I would probably had placed my loved one elsewhere, but since elders can be traumatized by moves, we are just trying to make this work (for now anyway).
