Reviews of Senior Care Plaza
Uppercut99 December 08, 2011
I visited this facility
Overall I found this place to be acceptable. There was a bathroom in every room, a very nice and seemingly competent nurse, and a clean comfortable environment. The food wasn't very good, but not horrible either, nothing fancy. The patients who lived there that I met overall seemed happy, which is the main reason I gave this place 4 stars instead of 3. It just seemed a bit "blah" and boring...The staff seemed caring enough, but nothing jumped out at me, nothing made me go wow, nothing made me want to put my parent in this place, or go here myself someday. It seemed like a place where old people were just waiting to die...but like i said, the patients there seemed happy, so who am I to judge. I would just like a little more activity or option of activity for the price. I think this place has a lot of the basics needed to be a great place to put a family member, I have no doubt my parent would be safe and well taken care of. It just didn't "wow" me.
