I visited this facility
The facility itself is nicely set-up it has both independent and assisted living options. As my mother-in-law is not as old as many who are either retiring or are going to these types of facilities, not having a traditional, "old folks home" vibe was important. The facilities are nice and the amenities are in line with much of what you would expect. Among the list of things that made us genuinely want to visit was the fact that they have a program for chronic pain care. My mother-in-law has had a back problem for years, and had some issues with pain medications, and is now in search of other methods of dealing with her back pain. The other major reason we wanted to visit was because of the Christian atmosphere it promotes. Overall, we enjoyed our tour and were pleased by everything we saw. While not extravagant, the facility and amenities were in line with what you would really expect and need. The biggest seller is not the facility, but that the residents seem and act happy. It is rare to go to facilities such as this and have such a wellspring of positivity. While we are still in the decision-making process for my mother-in-law, as she recently decided against a facility closer to where she lives. Valley View Village is currently on a very short list.
I visited this facility
A couple years ago, I visited a nursing home that my mother worked at. The exterior was very nice. There were nice gardens and benches that the residents could sit at on warm summer days. When I walked through the front doors, there was a nice sitting area with flowers arranged on numerous tables. The building was neat and decorated very beautifully. My mother took me on a tour of the living quarters. I was very disappointed after seeing the rooms that the elderly people slept in. They were very dull and crowded. There were two beds in one room and the beds were twin size. The rooms seemed outdated compared to the rather modern dining area and game rooms. The nursing home had different events throughout the week such as bingo, card games, and karaoke. I was able to attend lunch. I helped my mother bring some of the elderly people to the dining area. There were about ten tables. Each table sat about four people. The meals did not look very tasty to me. I chose not to eat. The staff was very friendly and they really seemed to care for the residents. Everyone had a smile on his or her face. I would say the positive definitely outweighed the negative.
