My Aunt is Happy here

My Aunt has had a smooth transition and getting the swing of things. She seems to be happy with it. The staff is very good at knocking on her door at meal times to ask if she is coming down. And they also try to engage her to join the daily activities. It is kept clean with no odors. This community is very homey feeling. The food is good some days, some days it's not but they have alternate choices. They have a nice patio and a big piece of land that backs up to the elementary school named Friends School they come and sing for them sometimes.

Care style here may not work for everyone

Our loved ones were at The Hickman for a time, but unfortunately it did not end up working out. They try to have a more hands-off approach to care here. While they may work well for those with a lower level of care requirements, our loved ones ended up needing a more proactive approach. Our loved ones got to the point where they needed a lot more follow-up and communication than what they provide here.
