I found Courtyard Gardens of Jupiter because of its close proximity to my home. It was my number one choice for my mom and I'm just blessed that it's only 10 minutes away from me. They have what they call "transitional unit," which means it is more than assisted living but not yet a nursing home care. The very first time that I stepped in the door, I noticed that it was clean. I like the caring staff and the ratio of the staff to the patients. They take great care of their patients. They answered all my questions. They have called me numerous times and updated me on what's going on with my mother whether it's physical therapy they recommended for her or how was her doctor's appointment. I also liked that they have two doctors onsite that come to the facility and do the exams right there. They're very professional. I did eat there before and the food is excellent. My mom is now eating regularly. Before, she was losing so much weight because she has dementia and she was forgetting to cook. Also because she was legally blind, she can't buy her own food. The rooms are fine and clean. They're also affordable. My mom happens to be in a shared room.
They have many activities at Courtyard Gardens. Residents have gone to the fair, to the science museums, etc. They had a huge Christmas celebration where probably more than 300 people were invited. They also had Fourth of July party. Residents are very active there. During the weekdays, they get them out. They don't just let them sit in their rooms all day. They put them on a bus and they take good care of them. One thing I have noticed when I stopped by to see my mother was more than one worker will say, "Oh by the way, you're mother had a wonderful time at the fair, I saw her eating a corndog." For them to take notice of what's she's eating, to me that says that they're taking good care of her there. I would absolutely recommend this place. She has only been there for two weeks but I'm very satisfied with them.
