Quality care

They were so accommodating and helped us get in here fast. My friend is getting great care and attention from the staff. He raves about the food, it is a posted a menu each week. The assistant director [name removed] bent over backwards to help us with our needs and was there every step of the way. They are not just sitting back, they are very involved and helpful with anything you may need. The medical staff have been great and are super responsive and on top of things as well.

The victory Centre is a good organization but that is dependent upon the needs of your love one. The staff for the most part are friendly and professional. But there are times when neglect have to be pointed out before the situation is rectified.

The location was hosting a cookout on the day I visited, so a large number of the residents were in the common areas. While it was somewhat congested the staff appeared to know each resident by name including any current activity the resident was involved with.

Perfect!

My mom and I fell in love with this place as soon as Barb (who is fantastic by the way) gave us a tour. As soon as you walk in it's very warm and welcoming. Melissa at the front desk is very sweet and helpful. The whole staff is absolutely wonderful and caring.. My mother is very happy here and has made many friends since moving in. I love how the dining room has different variations to choose from aside from the entrees. The food is very good! There is always daily activites going on which keeps my mom busy throughout the day and scheduled shopping trips if she needs to grab anything from the store. Overall, I'm very happy we chose this place for my mother with all they have to offer. I highly recommend it!

Dining experience

[Removed] I hold this facility to a pretty high standard. As my Grandmother lives here her personal opinions matter a great deal. Overall, I love the place because of the warm and welcoming staff, layout, and involvement of the staff. One area I'd like to point out is dining. The idea behind it is classy, socially-driven, and pleasant. My grandmother has very few complaints and so do I. I commend the staff for taking her suggestions and implementing them into some of the meals, she's a very critical person when it comes to food. The options are not always favorable but more often than not she enjoys it and that is great in my book. The options of entrees for all three meals allows them more independence and variety. You cannot go wrong with that. Being a nurse, I believe food ties into wellness of mind, body and spirit.
