My review of Maple Court

We chose Maple Court because it was closer to my house, so the location was key. He is in a semi-private room and they are on the smaller side, not much room ion there. The best part about the facility so far has been not having to drive very far to go see him. During COVID, they were doing window visits but now they have recently opened up the courtyard where we can visit with our loved ones. I would recommend this facility.

Caring staff

They took real good care of my mom while she was there. The staff was experienced and very good. They did everything we asked them to do and more. The community was laid out well. The food was good. The room sizes were good.

Maple Court is a great place to be!!!

Maple Court is a GREAT assisted living facility! The nurses are VERY nice and helpful. Both in person and by telephone, the nurses answer questions and are good to my mother. My mother is VERY happy there! That is the main thing! She does mention wanting to come home, which is normal for any dementia patient, but she loves the staff and the friends she has made at Maple Court.

My husbands care

I think that my husband is in a nice community and we like the care that he is receiving from the wonderful staff. This is a clean environment for him and we like that they have a good menu. They do offer him activities to participate with the other residents. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one

We toured the community for care. The staff made us feel welcome and we really did like that the community was bright which is helpful. The menu was appealing and we were able to see the activities at the time of the tour. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one. We wanted a community closer to our home.

Happy Choice

I chose Maple Court for my family member because it was close to our home and therefore very convenient. I like the design of the building and enclosed courtyard which is open for residents anytime. The entire staff has been kind, accessible, and so helpful. The rooms are clean and well maintained.

Good Days, and Bad Days, But Overall a Nice Community

My father is doing pretty well since his move to this community. Overall they are taking good care of him and his needs. He has some bad days. and some good days. I know he is safe, and in good hands at this community. The staff has been very encouraging to him too participate in the activities they have available. He is eating well, I have't heard any complaints about the food.

Thank you!

The staff has been great and they made dads last days great for him. They were very accommodating to him. He did like the food, but it can use some work. They really have good staff and then they have bad staff. Whenever I had a problem they got right on it to resolve the situation. Dad did a lot better in this community.

We Had A Good Tour of This Community

We had a pleasant tour of this community. I really like it, and everything went very well. From what I saw the community appeared to be well maintained. The staff was friendly and informative. They answered my questions and were kind as well. The location of this community was to far for us to travel to visit her. My tour went well.

It's Been Good But Not Perfect

I think the staff are providing the right care for my mom. I also think they keep the community clean. I am not certain but I think my mom enjoys the meals. There are some activities but not all day for the residents. It has been good so far.

Nice place, overall

Our experience with Maple Court was only a short one, but overall I thought it seemed like a nice place. The people were friendly, the facility was clean, and they did a good job looking out for the residents. We did have a few problems regarding communication with staff members. Sometimes it could be difficult to find the correct person to talk to regarding whatever issue you were having.

Great Experience

My family considered many options when deciding what care would be best for our loved one. Maple Court felt right from the start. They have delivered all they promised. My family member is satisfied and so are we knowing she is taken care of. This facility is well staffed with caring workers for the residents. As a healthcare worker myself I am picky. Maple court has been a great place for our family.

A Place to feel Wecomed & More!

I feel that Maple Court is a very great fit for our family. My father & I are very close. I looked at several options before I made this choice. I kept coming back to them for many positive reasons. I truly felt like it is a friendly caring staff. It felt like it's a place that could really be home. I would highly recommend this comfortable place needs to be consider for your family or friends needs. One thing that really stood out to me is the special care that is needed to each person is given. They are not just another one in the misted of it all. I really am impressed by that!

Be Careful Before Choosing Maple Court

They can make photos that make it look like a great place but the truth is that Maple Court is understaffed which makes the quality of care terrible. It is basically a nursing home without certified caregivers. The nursing staff is good but overworked. Residents are left wet and soiled for extended periods of time. Very few activities are offered and residents are usually just parked in front of the television and left unattended until bedtime. When you go to check out Maple Court ask other family members about their experience. Don't trust staff to tell you the truth. You can do much better for the money.

Great alternative to a nursing home.

Maple Court is a clean and fresh smelling facility. Rooms are large and reasonable in price. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable but when we toured the place they acted fake and scripted. As long as granny is happy.

Great care, Horrible billing

The medical staff at Maple Court were great, BUT if you are depending on an outside agency, such as the Dept of Labor to pay the bill, Maple Court will refuse to work with them to get paid as well as the atorney in Oregon will tell you he will have them work it out then HE will file the claim against the deceased estate. They have made it so stressful and traumatized trying to get the bill to the DOL that we are just going to sue them. Contacted Don [Removed] it is so bad.

very pleased

I am very pleased with Maple Court. The only thing I am a little concerned about is the security there. When I went to leave while visiting I noticed no staff were around by the front doors. Other than that it has been a good experience.
