I visited this facility
Sterling House of Monroe came as a referral from Caring.com. I think it was fine. There seemed to be a lot of residents there; however, it just wasn't what I was looking for. Nevertheless, the staff was very nice, very accommodating, and very thorough. The place seemed small, but they did have activities. They offered rooms, but I was looking for more of an apartment situation. They don't want the residents to stay in their rooms, but I wouldn't want to be in that facility myself. The facility was nice, but just not anything outstanding for the price. I think it is expensive for what you get.

We looked into Sterling House of Monroe. It was close to where my mother resided in her own home. However, we found out there was a Sterling House of Oklahoma City, which was near my brother, so we put her there.
The Monroe facility is clean and small, which is what my mom preferred. The staff was extremely helpful. They were very good about telling us that if we decided to have my mom in Monroe, MI and later on decide to move her closer to a family member in Oklahoma, there would be no changes in fee schedule or services or any of that unless it was called for. We were really impressed with the consistency in this organization.

This facility really cared about my grandmother. They knew how stubborn she was and that she would try and leave if she could possibly escape so they kept her very engaged and kept an eye on her. The staff was wonderful, thoughtful and always there to help. The facility isn't exactly the most beautiful but I think they did well with what they had to use. When my grandmother fell and hurt herself a few weeks before she passed away she was severly cut and bruised and they felt terrible about it and expressed a lot of concern. It was nice that they cared enough but they knew it wasn't something that could have been prevented. The facility had lots of field trips and different things people who were staying there and visiting could do. They did field trips to zoos and museums, and they had a beauty parlor their patients could use. The food was pretty good and they made sure that everyone had something they liked so the patient wouldn't skip out on their meals. They had weekly crafts, bingo and other interactive activities to keep people from staying in their rooms all the time. They also allowed for you to decorate and buy things to make your room feel like home. Altogether our family was pleased with how our grandmother was cared for.

Their staff was very nice. It was very clean and well it looked very nice. Their food looked really good nothing grose. My family member was very happy with her stay. Their staff helped you if you had any paper work. They also helped her get back on her feet one step at a time. My grandma was very happy with her stay. Their bathrooms were very clean as well that is very good.
