I thought the Heritage of Elm Grove was very nice. The people there were very professional, and it's a brand new building, so obviously it's gorgeous. It just was a nice feeling when we walked in. Like I said, the building was brand new, so it was designed very nicely. The rooms are a decent size, and it really can get you a bedroom and a living area, which is what she wanted. It is a little crowded where the actual building is because there is a railroad track pretty close by, but they seem to have done a nice job with the outside landscaping, and they have a nice porch up on the second floor. We have eaten there three times now, and the food has been very good. The chef actually came out and asked us if everything was OK or if there was anything he could do that was different, so I was very impressed with that. They have two or three activity people, so we met them, and they seemed to be interested in what she likes to do and what her likes and dislikes are, so I felt that was very nice. They were offering cooking classes and a Catholic service every Friday, which is something that my grandma was very interested in.
They had puzzle things, card games, and Bingo, and they just seem to have two or three activities every single day. They do have transportation for the residents. There is a grocery store within walking distance, and the Sunset Playhouse is also within walking distance -- like less than a block -- but they said that they provide transportation to the mall, which is two miles away. They have a good relationship with the churches and a couple other organizations right in the community, which I thought was nice, and I felt like I was part of the community.
