Marigold Place only has I think about 65 residents. The nice thing about the particular apartment that my mother- and father-in-law will be moving in is they have an exercise room and washer and dryer; they're ordering a new washer and dryer, so they'll have 3 washers and 3 dryers. They do your laundry for you once a week, but they will allow you to go in there and do your laundry anytime you want -- like if you have an extra load or you just prefer to do your own laundry, you can. The detergent's already set up, and you just dispense it. The dining hall is nice. They have their own tables and a little appetizer for them before they bring out their main dish, and if they don't like what's on the menu, they have an always-available menu on the table right across from when they first come in the dining hall. There are 3 or 4 different kinds of soup and a turkey and ham sandwich. There's yogurt and fruit, and if that's all you want, you can just come anytime and get that, so that was nice. They had a nice sitting area. I was very impressed, and I was very impressed and pleased with the staff. They even offered -- before we made a final decision to move this week -- while we were out of town and if something happens, call us and we'll send a nurse to your house, which was very nice to know. They have garden pot areas like if you want to do a little gardening in the courtyard area, that's available for you, and it's a secure courtyard area for Alzheimer's. It's a safer environment. Another plus is that if you get to where you can't come to the dining hall, they will let you stay, and you can spend all your days in Marigold Place. My father-in-law will most likely -- judging from his health -- die before my mother-in-law, but she will still be able to live out all her days there, and she can even have a private sitter come in her room. If she wants to have hospice, she can have that until her dying breath. One of the things they also offer is that if you have family that are in from out of town, they set upon availability places that your family can stay in, which is nice.

My mother has been a resident for more than 3 years and has thrived as a direct result of the staff and residents. She is an "Army" wife and is very social and her needs are well met. There are lots of interesting activities, good food and the apartments are wonderful. She has been extremely happy, I have spent a good deal of time with her since she moved in and have gotten to see the operation first hand and have always been happy with what I see. They are extremely responsive to requests and are very proactive in their care of my mom. Thanks Marigold Staff and friends!!

Marigold House was just a better fit for mom and dad personality wise. They did not like the location of the other facility and the other place was just a little too upscale for them, this was just the perfect fit. Everything there is just very well done. We had two main contenders and it boiled down to location and friendly staff - the reason why we chose Marigold House.
The rooms are wonderful and spacious. It's just truly amazing on the food, 'coz I'm used to institution food. This is more like home cooking and everyone there really likes it. Anytime I have a problem I can give them a call or go by there and they're right on it, if it's within their means they will fix it. It really comes all together there, for us its' a great fit.

Marigold House is well-staffed and they have nice people. It's a little bit outdated. The atmosphere is fine and people there are happy. The rooms are nice but a little bit smaller and older.
Thanks for the compliments, Ron2!

The Marigold House assisted living facility was an absolute wonder for me and my grandmother, when she wasn't able to take care of herself anymore. I realized I wasn't able to provide for my grandmother, because of financial reasons, therefore I had to look for an acceptable, loving, and caring home for her to live out the rest of her life. My grandmother stays here for few months by now. I am a regular visitor here. In the memory care program, they focus on making each day purposeful and meaningful for each resident. Their highly-trained staff ensures that residents feel comfortable and safe in their own sense of self and the world, and their thoughtful activities programming helps dementia patients continue to enjoy their favorite activities.. The facility features cozy neighborhoods with a beauty shop, library, garden room, sunroom, activity rooms and reading nooks. I almost know most of the residents here who live like a family and enjoy their stay in peaceful environment. The quality of food is also nice and sumptuous. I would recommend this facility for loved ones.
