I visited this facility
I found The Meadows for my father, and he would be moving in on the 12th. Right now, they were awesome. The apartments looked very good. They were very clean, very well kept up. They had a good staff. The dining room was clean. This was more of an independent thing, and they had cards and stuff like that when they got together with them. Mostly, they had their own weekend things that they had gatherings for. They had a clubhouse there, which was primarily for games and entertainment. They had different stuff all the time.

I visited this facility
This facility is only 5 years old. The staff is very friendly and knows the individuals by name. The only concern I had about the alzheimer's unit was how "dark" this area seemed. The inside colors were dark colors, dark wood trim which emphasized a closed in feeling for me. Lighter colors and more outside and inside light would make this area seem more inviting.
From The Meadows Independent and Assisted Living Community
The Meadows offers exceptional 24-hour, 7-days-a-week care from a loving care staff and nurses. Residents are treated as they would be by their own loved ones.
The Meadows is a licensed Level II Assisted Living community with a unique setup. Level II licensing is held throughout the entire building, allowing residents to grow in place and adding services beyond the basic package, as needed. Services such as full medication administration, bathing, personal laundry service, assistance with personal hygiene, dressing, incontinence assistance and/or health maintenance support can be added.
Aside from the five-star care it offers, The Meadows also prides itself on being more like a five-star hotel rather than a medical facility. The community has 65 private apartments with floor plans ranging from studio to a large, two-bedroom apartment. Each has modern kitchen appliances, window treatments, carpet and individual climate controls. The facility has a full kitchen staff who prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
The Meadows also has a licensed Alzheimer’s wing. This specialized memory care wing offers additional structure and safety features for residents with progressed dementia or Alzheimer’s. Residents are offered the best quality of life within a secure, home-like environment. The 10-unit, private apartment wing has a patio, dining room, activity area and family room, as well as a high staff-to-resident ratio.
Apart from the Alzheimer’s wing, The Meadows offers numerous amenities including an on-site salon, theater, library, and activity rooms for residents to enjoy. The Meadows calendar is consistently packed with outings, group activities and social events. Bingo, Nintendo Wii games, shuffleboard, movies and popcorn, balloon volleyball and crafts are just a few examples of planned activities. Residents are also given the option to attend numerous activities away from the facility. Monthly outings include options such as dinner out, a theater show, a festival and many more. The Meadows provides transportation to outings, doctors appointments and shopping to cover every resident’s need.
