I am a friend or relative of a resident

There's a combination of reasons why we chose Keystone Commons for my father. I'm very impressed with the administrative staff as well as the direct care staff, the rating it received from the Internet search, the overall cleanliness, and the level of care that they're able to provide, in addition to its being a convenient location for my siblings and myself to maintain contact with my dad. In addition to the traditional assisted living, they have a secured memory care unit, which is something that my dad did need. Not all of the assisted living facilities have that or have placement available. They've been very good with my dad – on good days and bad days. Communication with family is never a problem, too. If we had more time to look around, there certainly are some facilities that are less expensive and newer, but this seemed the best choice at that time, and it's working well.

Keystone Commons is a newer facility. It was only 5 minutes away from my dad's old house so he gets to see his neighbors and friends because it's so close. It was just a little more expensive. They're very, very clean, the entire facility was immaculate. The food was excellent, they're very heart healthy, conscious. Excellent facility and the people were very nice, very generous. I would recommend this facility as well. They offer a great deal.

I liked the brightness of Keystone Commons and the availability of care and service. They were open about the amount of money it would cost and they were straightforward with what you got for your money. The staff was good, caring, thoughtful, and customer service focused.

We've put a deposit for my mother so she can move into Keystone Commons. It has all the amenities that we were looking for at a good price. It has an Alzheimer's back-up facility in it, which seemed good. It's got well-sized rooms, people seem well cared for, and it seems to have all the features that one would expect in a well-run senior assisted living facility.
