I am a friend or relative of a resident

Scioto Community is a very clean assisted living facility. My grandmother moved there because she got to the point that it was too difficult to take care of herself. Residents were expected to go to the dining hall for meals unless they had informed the staff ahead of time that they weren't able to attend. In these cases, a staff member would often bring a tray to the resident. The rooms were small, yet handicapped accessible. The room that my grandmother was in had a small mini-kitchen and living room as soon as you entered the room. There was a small hallway off of the kitchen and a bedroom and bathroom were there. Staff members seemed to be very nice and tried to engage the residents as best they could. There were several community-building activities planned each week such as BINGO, movie nights, outings to local restaurants, and craft shows. All in all, she was happy while she was there and she made terrific friends with other residents.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The facility is clean and clean-smelling; it also has a number of really good features such as a courtyard that is surrounded by the building so patients can go outside without danger. Because this facility is close to my church, many of my church friends have either stayed there or had family members there. The facility can be more than adequate if the person staying there has an outside family member who can be there on a daily basis not just to see what is going on but to help with the care of the person staying at the facility. The food is pathetic; one of my friends was having trouble eating enough food and I could see why--it was unappetizing. By the time it gets to where people are living (for those who can't make it to the dining room), it's cold. The staff I have met have seemed nice enough, but there is too much work to be done by too few people. Two times I saw residents not be able to go to the bathroom because staff couldn't get to them or were not clear on how to help them (one had serious Parkinson's disease). I reported this facility in these instances. The building is nice; the furniture is nice; there are facilities for patients such as a hair dresser. The externals are just fine. It seems, however, that actual patient care gets neglected too often because of the desire to keep the place profitable.
