I visited this facility

My mother is moving in at Lima Estates and it's a buy in community. They serve one or two meals a day. The rooms are beautiful. My mother is an artist and they have an art studio. They also have trips if the residents want trips. The staff are very courteous. They have concierge there and volunteers to do things for the residents. It's a really nice place.

The staff is great. They are always friendly and accommodating and willing to move around their schedules to accommodate family visits. The comfort level is high! Carpeted floors in all parts of the building really makes it feel like home. Other facilities that I have visited have really been a turn off if they had tile floors. The residents are friendly for the most part as well. The facility seems to encourage mingling with different events, which fosters relationships among the residents. Residents' art is regularly displayed and rotated, which is a great feature.The facility also offers a dining room where my grandmother has hosted a few parties. One great thing is that right now she is staying in a hospital-like portion, but it is all in walking distance (all indoors) from her regular apartment in the facility. I think that this helps her feel that she is still at home without really being there.

The facility (Lima Estates) in Media, PA offers the residents many recreational options that can be enjoyed by those that are still active and those that are less active. The employees seem to genuinely care for the residents and the residents are encouraged to attend various functions so that they can get to know others. The biggest negative is that the residents are not allowed to do much gardening around their porch areas.

Lima Estates in Media, PA, is set on lovely grounds with beautiful gardens. There are many outside areas for the residents to enjoy, including a putting green. The large, open lobby greets visitors, with a cafe that includes a large selection of entrees and snacks. The apartments are a reasonable size, although not as large as other retirement communities in the area. The amenities are plentiful, including a pool, computer room, exercise facilities, craft rooms, beauty shop, and transportation to many local shopping and medical facilities. My only concern is the staff - many staff members didn't seem to know resident's names or anything about the facility. Questions regarding number of residents, how long the facility had been in existence, and number of staff went unanswered. Staff members I asked for directions answered, but were not particularly friendly. This location has an institutional feel, with residents being told where to sit and what to do during free time.Overall, I believe it would be a nice place for a resident to live while in independent living, but the assisted living and continuing care had a corporate feel that left me wondering what type of life the residents of those facilities would have.
