I am a friend or relative of a resident

My uncle is a resident of Alexian Village of Elk Grove Illinois. I am his power-of-attorney for all health and property related matters, so I have had considerable interaction with staff in all departments at Alexian Village. Suffice it to say, my uncle loves Alexian Village and is very appreciative of all the support he receives from the enthusiastic individuals who work there. It is clear from my conversations and visits with my uncle that he is very happy and healthy at Alexian Village. He feels that all his needs are handled responsively and responsibly. My uncle feels the food is perfect. He is allowed to have a pet, which is great because he loves his cat. His room never smells because laundry is done routinely, housecleaning is on top of room maintenance and twice daily garbage pick-up. There are no shortcomings in the service my uncle receives.

We are quite appreciative of all those who support the residents at Alexian Village. I do want to make special mention of one individual, Lauren. Lauren goes out of her way to assist my uncle and other residents, making them feel comfortable and secure. Lauren was the face of Alexian Village when we first visited the residence to learn if it was the right place for our uncle. From the beginning Lauren made us feel welcomed, and that our uncle would be special to them. Lauren has helped us in so many instances, whether it was directing us to the right people to handle Medicaid issues or to understand rules pertaining to resident care and residency. She always gets back to us quickly whenever we have any questions. Lauren has even gone out of her way to help my uncle maintain a secure and sanitary environment for his cat!

There are others within the ranks of the administration and staff who have gone out of their way for my uncle. I could go on and on. We frequently talk about how incredibly grateful we are to have discovered Alexian Village!

It felt like a nursing home. Old people sleeping all over.

We moved our mother to Alexian from another facility and WOW! We didn’t realize there would be such a remarkable difference. It is clear that the staff really cares about her and cares about providing comfort and support to her. Multiple staff members have gone above and beyond to help her - finding lost object, helping her organize and clean out her room. Mom used to be suspicious and fearful in the old facility – due to the exceptional care she has received at Alexian, she is now calm, smiling, and happy. We are very grateful for their excellent, compassionate service!

Alexian Village is where we wanted my parents to go to. You can stay all the way to the end. You can get converted over to your government insurance after you ran out of money. However, we couldn't go there because my father made too much money. It's a very nice place. They have TV rooms, exercises, crafts, and different activities.

Alexian Village's grounds were fabulous. They have the most beautiful flowers. Everything was great. There is a hospital just right across the street. I saw one of their apartments. It was very nice, clean and painted nicely. They also have a clean laundry room in the facility. Everyone was nice. The staff was very nice. The one who toured me around answered anything that I wanted to know. Alexian Village was a very good place in to stay; however, I have cancer and my legs are weak and I have to do a lot of walking just to get to their apartment building.

I liked the location of Alexian Village of Elk Grove but I did not like the facility as much as the others. The staff were helpful and friendly.

In my experience, the facility was fantastic... My grandmother was extremely happy there and all of her fellow residents seemed to be happy, healthy, and got along well with all of the staff members. Before my grandmother became hospitalized, she loved living there and truly cared about her neighbors and the staff. The rooms were very clean and roomy. The bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen were surprisingly well-equipped and modern. To be honest, I was kind of jealous! The grounds of this place were quite nice and the place looked just beautiful from the street. I felt comfortable with her stay there because she was happy and was very close to other residents there. It was very easy to visit her and we were welcomed by the staff with open arms. I will admit that this was some years ago but I have not heard anything different since she was living there. I am glad that she was able to spend the last few years of her life in such a loving environment.

Upon entering, the staff at Alexian is very friendly and helpful. The first time we went there, they showed us around and even walked us to my great uncle's room. They seemed both professional and caring. The facility is great and offers a lot of activities for their residents. My great uncle isn't particularly active there, mostly because he forgets to go to events they have planned and sometimes forgets that he attended them. He has found, with help of the staff there, some friends who come get him for events, along with a group to play cards with. He laughs that there are a lot more women than men there and he isn't about to take on a wife since he hasn't had one for 80 some years. The food there is nutritious and the food service is well organized. We have even had the pleasure of eating with him there a few times and actually found our food to be pretty tasty. The outdoor grounds are beautiful. We love taking him for short walks and sitting on the benches. I find his actual room (apartment) to be a bit small, but I suppose for one person, there isn't a need for a lot of space. He has had to go the ER a couple of times during his stay there and the staff has been helpful and prompt in letting our family know immediately when the situation occurs. While there is staff on duty 24 hours a day, we have had a couple of times when we have picked him up for a family event and had a difficult time getting him back in, as no one was there to open the door and it's locked I believe after 8 AM. Another time we had called to let them know we would be picking him up, as requested by a staff member, so that they could give him time to be ready. When we arrived, it hadn't been communicated to him. I suppose it's possible he forgot, but the nurse on duty didn't seem to know anything about it. Overall, I would definitely recommend this facility to people seeking care for loved ones.
