Known for its large fields of blue-tinged grass, Kentucky is often referred to as “The Bluegrass State.” The state is also famous for its role in horse breeding and equestrian sports. One of the most popular events in the state is the Kentucky Derby held at Churchill Downs, nicknamed “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports.” Cities like Louisville and Lexington have a welcoming charm, with plenty of historic sites and tons of world-class amenities to offer. The state is also in close proximity to other nearby major cities, such as Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Nashville, making it a convenient place to call home and an ideal place to retire.
The median monthly cost of a home-health aide in Kentucky is about $3,800, according to Genworth. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of home care services in Kentucky to help you find one that fits your needs and budget.
The rooms and overall layout of this community would be a four out of five. Before COVID we were able to eat some meals there with our loved one, and the food our be about a three out of five. We would recommend this community to others.Read more
This is based solely off of a limited amount of exposure to the community. My brother was miserable where he was before; he needed a change, a new caregiver, and a new place to call home. When we moved him in here, we had hopes that he would be happier and he really is. The people are very welcoming, the residents and staff make it feel like home. It generally has a good vibe to it. The staff is knowledgeable, nice, and helpful. He requires a little more care than we originally thought but they’ve been great about helping us with that. The food is good and there are plenty of options. They have a menu that you can order what you want from. They take everyone out for lunches once a week and there are always lists of activities and occasional social events. They make an effort to get everyone involved. We’re paying a little bit more here and there are some things that aren’t included in the cost (like phone and cable) but he’s happier so I’m happy. Overall, I’d recommend them.Read more
The staff was super. If we had a need, we could just press the button and they would come. They were very attentive, and they were great to our loved one and to our family. The other residents were super as well. They were very friendly to our loved one, and I felt like she was really hitting her stride and getting to know everybody before her health took a turn for the worse. The only cleanliness issues we noticed was a couple of centipedes during the Springtime, but we told the aide and they sent the maintenance man to take care of it right away. At the end, we had a bit of a problem where the aids weren't coming in every two hours like they told our family they would. They thought that if one of the family members was there that the aides didn't need to come in. But when we addressed it with them, they were very responsive and accommodating to our concern. That night at suppertime we had four aides in the room and ready to help. All of the aides I interacted with were very friendly and kind. I understand the issues they face with understaffing and not always having the help that they need. The food was okay overall, although the desserts were very good. I think they could have done a better job of letting the residents know what the menu was going to be for the week, and also making them aware of alternatives at each meal. They did have a menu on the table that the residents could order from, but the residents didn't seem to know it was there. And that might have been due to memory issues on the resident end. They have two different dining rooms, one for assisited living and one for independent, and then one kitchen that serves both. I wasn't there for a lot of the activities, but my loved one seemed to enjoy the activities she participated in, and they had some singers come in every once in a while for entertainment. For what our loved one was getting, I feel like it was a pretty standard value. The public area décor was a little dated, but she had a very nice room that was like a studio apartment, three meals a day, and good medical attention.Read more
