I am a friend or relative of a resident
We recently found ourselves in need of care for our Mother. I had no idea where to start. Caring.Inc provided several locations to look at. We were so pleased by this facility. The most important thing was Mom's safety. The care givers were everywhere with the residents. I loved the amount of activities offered to the residents. We had lunch there several times and found the food of an excellent quality. We moved Mom in a week ago and no longer fear for her safety.
If there is anything I could view as needing improvement is more assistance in the paperwork. As expected there is a great deal of paperwork and we have found it necessary to obtain information multiple times from Mom's Dr. It is a stressful time when making this life altering change for our Mother. The need for additional work does not help the stress level.
I feel so much better that Mom is now taken care of so well.
I visited this facility
The entrance is very large and there is a staircase that goes up to the second floor. The room right next to the entrance is spacious and has a old fashioned popcorn machine that is very cool. The rooms are extremely large, but the downside is there is no living area in some of the room. The bathroom is big and easy to use. The color scheme is a little depression because it seems like it is too old-fashioned and not modern enough but other than that it seems like it would be a nice place to live.

This is an awesome facility! The entire staff is so nice, and it just feels homey. They have a large dining room with delicious - sounding meals, and a parlor room with TV and a fireplace to stay cozy during the winter months. The rooms are spacious and clean, and there are various activities for the residents. There is bingo, concerts, trips, movies, exercise and so much more. The caretakers are nice and warm to all the residents, and there are even volunteers that come to help out. During my visit, I saw two volunteers playing a game with a resident, and another doing a puzzle with one. Everything is nice and spacious, and there is even an old jukebox (that doesn't work but is still a nice addition) and popcorn machine with actually popcorn that you can eat. Also, the facility is located close to a store plaza with Wendy's, Dominick's, a pizza place, and more, so it's easy to take your loved one out to breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are games that you can play any time you want, like banana grams, scrabble, left right center, and more. In addition to all this, every resident gets their own "memory box", made by volunteers with stickers, cutouts and photos of the resident and things that he/she likes. This is a wonderful place and I would recommend it to anyone.
