Review ofThe Mansions at Gwinnett Park Assisted Living & Memory Care
5.0

I chose The Mansions because it was a place that had more of a homey feeling to it rather than feeling institutional. The room size is perfect for what I need and would be good for a man and wife as well. It is a great value for the money compared to others that I looked into. I would recommend them to others.

The caregivers were very friendly and did a good job. They were efficient and provided good care. The staff overall was very cooperative and friendly. The only problem at this time is staffing shortages made having consistent caregivers difficult. And that made it hard for me because I had to re-educate people all the time. Plus, I couldn't get the days that wanted. I got the total number of the days, but not the specific days that I preferred.
