I visited this facility
We went to University House very briefly, and I like the facility, but my mom needed a higher level of care that they weren't able to provide. The facility is very nice. It's very well kept, and it's kind of a higher scale facility. The decorations are nice. It's more focused on independent people, and they donÕt cater to dementia patients. Their apartments are lovely, and the dining area is very nice. I saw the staff, and I thought that they were good, but I feel that they weren't being realistic about what they were able to do when you need higher care. My mother should not have ever been left alone, and that wasn't something that they insisted upon. I feel my mom needs to have a caregiver, and they were resistant to have her needing that. They weren't realistic about how much help she needed.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
the grounds a clean, safe, and easy to get around. the staff is very friendly and professional- excellent bedside mannor. and they manage multiple levels of need, from hardly any, to total dependance with care and respect. the food is often locally sourced and was better than expected, with a great deal of variety. most importantly the community is very strong. not just the staff, but he residents as well. the whole buliding is very clean, and never felt sickly.

If there's a place I would want to be, it's definitely in this facility. They seem to have everything here.
The amenities include: an entry area that looks like a fancy hotel, saltwater swimming pool, a salon that opens more often, a large dining room and larger variety of rooms configuration. It also has a broader mix of people; active seniors and some using walkers or in wheel chairs.
This place has a unique policy, a policy to be actively friendly. If someone is new, one resident acts as a mentor to show the new one around. They also try to match up similar interests and likes. For instance, a woman started a painting group. They meet on their own every week to do some activities.
