This facility is designed exclusively for the care of residents with Alzheimer's disease. The staff and administration are very caring in their approach when dealing with residents. There are a number of activities to keep the everyone busy during the day. The meals are well prepared and taste very good. The facility is clean without any objectionable odors. The structure has a lot of natural light with high ceilings. The residents can go outside and enjoy the fresh air when the weather is nice with walkways, grass, plants and flowers that are attractive and well groomed. The facility is very open and attractive to the residents.
I visited this facility
The Laurels is a very, very nice community. It's gorgeous and it was thirty minutes closer to me than the other ones I visited. Everybody there was really helpful. I couldn't imagine anybody not liking to stay there but I just couldn't afford to get my father in law in there.

The Haven in the Village at Carolina Place seemed like a really good place and the layout was really good, but I'm not pleased with it at all. The staff has been in turmoil since we got there. They lost the director, then the nursing director, and the staff who work with the people directly do not care. I complained and they did nothing. Those people are still there and I think it's just they were against everything cheap. The food and the care is cheap, and it's bad. The only thing they furnished is the closet, which is broken. They have spelling activities for Alzheimer's patients, bingo, ice cream socials, and they take them out occasionally. I don't have a problem with their activities. They can improve on the food and hire people that actually care about the patient. My mom has Alzheimer's, so she can't tell you if she likes it there or anything.

I have a friend who has a family member in this facility, they say they are very happy here. The staff and the enviorment of the facility are all in very good standings. I went to the facility to visit with my friends family member and really enjoyed first hand the attention not only did my friends family member recieve but I recieved as well. The entire Laurels staff welcomed me and assisted me with directions on how to get to the resident I was visitings room and also talked to me about how I was doing and how I was related to the resident. They seem like majority of the staff at the Laurels really do care and not to mention how neat the facility is. I really feel like this would be a good place for one of my loved ones to live and I am thankful for the care that my friends family member is recieving there as well.
This facility has a great sales pitch, but their follow through is nothing to write home about. My mother, who was at the beginning stage of dementia, went to live there after having had a stroke. They placed her at a dining table for her meals with 2 women who had had debilitating strokes and could not talk. This was extremely upsetting for my mother. On the 3rd evening there, she started complaining of pain in her leg. I told her to tell the nurse when she came around with her medicine. The next evening, I went to see her after work. She was still complaining of pain in the same leg. I asked if she had told the nurse and she said the nurse had just given her Tylenol. The staff had been bringing my mother's meals to her room for 2 days, because she said her leg hurt too much to go to the dining room. I felt her leg and it was cool to the touch. I called our doctor's office. They told me to bring her to the ER. Turned out, she had a blood clot in her thigh and one in her aorta. If I had not visited her that night, she could have lost her leg, according to the doctors. The night my mother was released from the hospital, I went to the Laurels at about 10pm to pick up her medicines. We had decided we were not going to bring her back there to live, so we brought her home. I went in and out of the facility about 5-7 times carrying armloads of my mothers things out to my car. No one stopped me to ask who I was or what I was doing until about the 5th trip. I could have been robbing somebody blind there. The front door was not locked and there was no staff whatsoever in the lobby area. Also, during my walks in and out, I heard a man yelling "Help!" over and over from his room, where the door was ajar. There was no aide in the hallway for over 10 minutes of this. I finally poked my head in his door and asked him if I could help him with something. He was 1/2 raised up in bed and shocked to see me. He asked who I was. I told him my mother lived there and I had heard him calling for help. He said he was ok, that he just gets nervous. I held his hand and chatted with him for a few minutes until I was sure he was ok. He was quiet the rest of the time I was making trips in and out with my mother's things. Seems he just needed a little TLC, which was lacking from the staff at The Laurels. This is not a place I would recommend anyone leave their loved one.
I visited this facility
This place is phenomenal! After three other places my mother was, this was by far the most caring, the best equipped, the staff was dependable, much more "giving," much more honest. I saw Administration zero-in on one who secretly mistreated a patient. No more stealing from patients at this facility.
