Not enough activity

I was looking for a place for my mom and New Friends was a clean pleasant facilities, but I didn't feel like there was enough activities for her. Through my search I realized that my mom was more independent than the people in assisted living facilities. I am sure this would be a good place for some.

Please look before deciding

New Friends/Vibrant Life is a laughing joke!! Food isnt available after certain hours. The cook leaves and then nothing. Maybe a gram cracker. Lodge 2 is where my father was. Fell 3 times. Undocumented. Had his neck broken in three places. Left all night on the floor another time. Needed surgery, staff doesn’t have proper care for after hospital stays. Staff isn’t trained for dementia patients. No nurse on staff! Food sucks!! No coffee! No checks on people in their rooms! Don’t put your loved on in that place!!!

my experence

The community was comparable to other communities. They did accept Medicaid and this was one of the reasons we chose them. I would recommend this community to others. I was very impressed with their covid plan and they have done a great job keeping the residence.
