I visited this facility

At the Laurels, it was a different vibe. The residents seemed to be a little older, and even though some of them that I actually saw were impaired, they were up and around with canes and walkers. It was after their lunch hour, and I thought they were going back to their rooms or over to the activities that they had planned for the day, so I really didn't get a chance to talk to too many of the residents. But it was a clean, well-cared for place with a sunny and warm feeling, and the staff was very nice. They were exceptionally nice to me as far as I am concerned because at that time, I had a walking problem, so they politely gave me a wheelchair, and I was able to get around that way. That, of course, limited me to just certain areas where I could go. I wasn't able to really go outside around the grounds, but I saw one room because I was interested in a two-bedroom apartment, and they only had one available that I could see, so I only saw that one. My daughter-in-law -- who accompanied me -- was taking around, and she said that it was very nice. They had crafts and different things or activities going on. It is a warm atmosphere.

The Laurels & The Haven in Highland Creek was our second choice. It was The Haven part that we looked at. Everything was awesome about the community. They have a different philosophy -- they provide each patient's needs instead of general -- which is fascinating. Right now, it kind of looks old, but they are in the process of renovation. They had the nicest bathing area as far as safety. They had nice tablecloths and used solid color plates.

The Laurels was very nice, clean and spacious. The staff was very helpful, informative, and professional. I was very pleased. The dining room is very nice, open, and nice size. They have movies and bingo, they go out shopping, and they bring church services in. It seemed to be a very secure and safe place as well.

The Laurels was really nice. It was actually located very close to the mall. I was very pleased, the rooms were very nice, but it didn't have an open feeling. The staff were great, very attentive, friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and helpful.

The rooms were small at The Laurels, but the staff was really nice. I saw a little bit of the menu. My mom has dementia, and if I move her there and my mom’s dementia gets worse, they will again move her to another facility.

Provider Response

Thank you for your recent visit and taking a moment to share your thoughts. We are proud of our community and pleased that our menus and the warmth of our residents and staff made a positive impression. It seems that during your visit you might have viewed our studio apartment that is the smallest of our four floors plans. We do recognize that for some, this particular plan seems a bit on the cozier side and perhaps the larger one bedroom, or two bedroom at nearly 600 square feet might be a better fit. In conjunction with the many floor plan options, we are also fortunate to have both assisted living at the Laurels and our award winning, Bridge to Rediscovery, memory care at the Haven, both located on one convenient campus. Our Haven is its own neighborhood adjacent the Laurels as it is specifically designed to promote as much independence for our memory care residents as possible. Guest perspective always helps us to improve and we would like to invite you to come again to see all of our floor plans, visit the Haven neighborhood and experience our menu by joining us for a delicious meal. Thanks again for your review.

The Haven was a real nice place. The staff was nice. The rooms might have been a little bit bigger, but they were nice and well. I like the fact that it's dedicated to memory care.

Mom has been at The Laurels & The Haven for a month now. My brother chose this facility because of it price; its affordable, and it's close to me. The staff at the facility seemed very nice and very helpful with her. It seems like it's working out fine right now. She is well fed and she's well taken care of. They are doing the things that needs to be done for her.

I visited The Laurels and The Haven for my mother. It is a very nice facility. It is clean. Their rooms are nice. The staff is friendly. They also have many activities for their residents. I would recommend this place.

The place was excellent. I liked that it has a beauty parlor and a laundry room inside the facility. The only thing I didn't like about The Laurels is the price. The cost is too high. The rooms are small and not all the people there are friendly.

My Mom has been a resident at The Laurels for over a week. I have nothing but praise and high accolades for this facility and its staff. They have put smiles on her face and comfort and ease to her mind which she did not have living by herself. She enjoys sitting on the front porch with her new friends and loves going on outings on The Laurels' bus. I was impressed when I observed a lady at the front desk interacting with a resident that was sitting in the living room. She noticed a change in his demeanor and immediately called the nurse to tend to him. It was just some minor dizziness; however, he got immediate attention. The staff is very attentive to the residents and tries to meet their every need. If this were not so, then I do not believe you would see so many happy people living there. The Laurels in Highland Creek really do their best to make this a "Home Sweet Home" for their residents.

Laurels in Highland Creek is close to my home. My husband has been there since December. Their services meet our needs. They have in-house therapy, physical and occupational therapy. The setting was lovely, and grounds are well-kept. Overall, I felt like it was a top rate facility. But as would any senior care facilities, communication can always be better.

The Laurels in Highland Creek is the place that our great aunt now calls "˜home'. My husband and I are her only close family and we visit with her at least 3 times a month. We live in Rock Hill, SC and this assisted living facility is only a short drive away in Charlotte, NC. Our aunt insists that we stop in at the on-site ice cream parlor during our visit, and she certainly doesn't have to twist our arms to get us to agree. This is a cozy little spot that is very nostalgic, and the ice cream is delicious. From the moment we arrive at the main entrance it is easy to see that there is a lot of care and devotion. The residents are always smiling and the facility is extremely neat and tidy. Even the carpets are kept clean and fresh despite being walked on by numerous guests and visitors. According to our aunt this devotion to duty definitely extends to each and every senior aged resident. She needs help to get dressed in the morning and she says she never feels rushed. When she requests assistance for other activities she rarely has to wait for more than a few minutes for someone to arrive. We are delighted in the quality of service, compassion and care that we have personally seen at The Laurels in Highland Creek.

I have had experience with both The Laurels (the assisted living section) and the Haven (the Alzheimer's section) over the past few years. At first, when my loved one was residing at The Laurels, I was very impresed. The facility was well managed by a woman names Lauren Bonner (sp). The food services were excellent, one that would rival most eating establishments today. And the facility seemed well maintained and clean. Over the past few years, my opinions have changed dramatically. The facility has taken a nose-dive in the administration, the staff are bitter and unhappy, the food is awful, etc. I believe this to be the result of the new Executive Director. Since taking this role, all services have gone down and in addition to the residents, several employees have passed away unexpectantly. I would be weary of placing my loved one here again ever. This place has unfortunately lost the "home feeling" and the caring it once had.
