I visited this facility

The brochure we read prior to our visit didn't lie in the least bit. It advertised a facility with scenic landscapes, beautiful buildings, tons of opportunity for entertainment, lots of shopping outlets, and plenty of medical facilities. All of these were present and in great repair. Staff is on-hand every hour of every day, giving families the comfort of knowing their loved one is always taken care of. Additionally, there were several places of worship located nearby, which is absolutely fantastic. The people working were always doing something. I've been to facilities where staff could be seen loitering about, seemingly doing nothing with their time. It makes you wonder about the provided care. In this instance, everyone had a job to do. Whether it was escorting a resident to the cafeteria or doing a load of laundry, everyone was occupying their time doing something beneficial for the residents. The facility itself--in addition to looking fantastic--had an inviting atmosphere. Truthfully, as far as a retirement home is concerned, you'd have a hard time finding an alternative to home that feels more like home. Overall, I was very impressed with the facility. I'm unaware of the costs at the current moment, so I won't comment on that. It wouldn't surpise me if they were substantial, but the costs wouldn't come without the desired results. It's definitely work looking at Somerford Place if you've got a loved on dealing with Alzheimer's.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Somerford seemed to keep my grandmother quite happy. Making the choice for an assisted living facility can be difficult because all of them are trying to make the best impression, but Somerford seemed to actually have a genuine interest in resident's well-being. My grandmother seemed happy with the supportive, helpful staff (who often worked with her to help keep her memory in check) and the facilities seemed clean and well-maintained. We would sit with her while she ate lunch and the food seemed well-prepared and nutritious. The facilities themselves are intriguing and well-designed (there is a lobby foyer designed like an open park with shops) and there are endless activities for residents. While not every facility is perfect, Somerford seemed for the most part to strive for a comfortable, supportive atmosphere.
