Our experience is similar to the first review. This is a beautiful facility and conveniently located for follow on medical help for our Mom. Staffing is bare bones; only one person in the whole facility overnight. Mom fell a couple of times in the night so her bed was put on the floor. Staff says all she needs to do is push her button for help but they don't seem to realize she has memory problems and will not think of the button in the dark. There have been issues with medications and family requests not being followed. She's been found crying on the floor at night and no one to get her to the bathroom until it's too late. Food is minimal in quantity and quality. Mom's been in Aegis for over 2 years and the whole staff has turned over in that time and overall quality of care has declined. It IS very expensive and seemingly should not be so poorly staffed.

Aegis Living is both assisted living and they do have memory care...didn't give the options for both under category. My dad is in the memory care unit, he had been there for almost 2 yrs. They provide good care, but no one can give as good of care as a loved one. My dad got too much for my mom to take care of, so this is probably as good of care as she could get. It is very expensive though and they nickel and dime her or everything. She has gone through almost all of their life savings to keep him here, and he's in the stage now that I don't think he is aware of his surroundings. Here have been times when I've went to see him him and no staff were around looking after the residents in the memory care area. I think they provide ok care, but are really under staffed. I do think that the money that my mom is paying, about $10,000 a month...he should be getting better care. But, all in all if you can afford it it's probably the best care out there for Alzheimer's care. I hope my review is helpful. Let's all pray tht they find a cure for Alzheimer's soon.
