My mother spent 3 1/2 years there and really enjoyed her social interactions and services very much. However, when she passed away, the management became very unresponsive to our attempts to get a portion of her deposit back. In fact, four months later, they have not given us the amount we should expect back OR any communication as to when that payment will be made. We contacted the BBB and Ohio Attorney General's office three weeks ago and still have not heard back from the manager even after an early October letter from our attorney. This lack of response and responsibility has delayed our ability to settle my mother's estate and deepened the sense of loss since her death.

Glad I did it, no regrets

We recently had to put my mother in the memory care unit at Friendship Village of Columbus. Sadly, my mom passed away within a month of moving in. However, I cannot praise this facility enough for the care my mom received while in her care. They ALWAYS treated mom with the upmost dignity and respect, even after she was no longer able to respond to them. They were so gentle with handling my mom while moving her or changing her. They spoke to her, letting her know what they were doing when giving her meds, even knowing that she would not be responsive. They tended to mom's needs in a very reasonable time frame and never made us (the family) feel like we were putting them out, if we needed something. I have no regrets in placing my mom in this facility. I would do it again if I needed to.
