Villages of Jackson Creek Memory Care in Independence, MO
4.8

It is always a heartbreaking situation to have to place one's ailing parent in a memory care unit. Mom lived out her days with the staff singing to her and smiling with her. They encouraged her to be active and move her extremities. She was well fed and well taken care of. No nursing home is perfect and things sometimes get missed. But I am so glad I chose The Villages for my mother. She was happy and smiled a lot. She got a lot of attention from the great staff, the activities director and the social worker. Dementia is never ever fun and watching your parent decline is one of the worst things in life. My mothers dementia is the heartbreak of my life. The only saving grace was having her in a facility that was beautiful, that treated her well----where she could live out her days among those who could care for her better than I. She was close, I could always visit and she was well taken care of. What more can I ask for?

We like that this home has staff that has been there long term. It was one of the reasons we chose this home. After touring for several places and going back to some we found that management and staff were always changing. We were looking for a place where the staff stayed and we felt were knowledgeable. We are happy with our choice and our family member loves this home. The meals smell wonderful and our family member loves them and the staff.

Westchester Village of Lenexa

Mom's 1st fall led to 9 weeks of pain and substandard care in rehab facilities and with her passing. During this 9 weeks it was decided that Mom and Dad would not be able to remain in their home of 50+ years and after extensive research Westchester Village was selected for their Assisted Living accommodations. We moved Dad in and Mom moved to their Skilled Nursing to complete her rehab but the falls and her illness won that battle. With Dad in Assisted Living, regulations prevented Mom from joining him for hospice. Rather than have her somewhere that he couldn't visit, Westchester Village made their on-premise apartment available for hospice which allowed Dad to spend as much time as possible with Mom at the end as well as providing extra space for my rather large family as we were also trying to provide comfort and support to Mom, Dad, and each other. Courtney O'Connor, Judy Baxter, and the staff at Westchester Village have been kind, gracious, and generous thru this difficult time
