I am/was a resident of this facility

I live in an assisted home now at Sterling House of Bloomington. I have been here for almost three years now. Regarding the staff, they haven't had enough help since last fall, so that makes everything run late. Nevertheless, they treat me fine, and I get along fine with them. I have a private apartment, which is too small. They also don't have enough activities. Most of them are geared towards people who can't do much of anything. They have their exercises, but when it comes to playing cards, we play Uno and Crazy Eight, which are children's games. Regarding food, it is better than any place I have ever been. They of course have to follow what the Health Department tells them to serve, but other than that, it is edible. They also have a nice dining room. We each have our own seat.

We liked Sterling House. It had a very home like setting and they had everything there. They were above and beyond and they were five stars all the way around from the food, to the staff, to the room. It was excellent. They had activities like bingo, theater, cards, crafts and they took them out shopping. We wouldn't have even looked anywhere else. However, we were just not able to pick it for my grandmother because her insurance wouldn't cover it as it is an assisted living only and not skilled nursing.

The Sterling House in Bloomington, Indiana seems to be a great assisted-living facility. Residents of the facility range in degrees of required care, but those who are up and able to be about on their own seem to be content. The dining facilities are what impressed me most. The atmosphere doesn't feel clinical or cafeteria-like. The tables are dressed with actual linens and the area is decorated nicely to reflect a high level of personal taste. Residents are able to enjoy their own activities in their rooms and have things the way they want them. If they want to display a doll collection or a favorite quilt, they can. If I remember right, there were also areas that allowed residents to visit in small groups, read or watch TV. As with any facility like this, some residents did look bored and some seemed in too poor of health to be there, but that goes with anyplace like this. Most staff seemed helpful and engaged.
