I thought The Palms was very good. I really liked it. The apartment that I saw was small. I found that it was a little pricey, but that did not bother me at the moment because I was looking for a place that I could feel at home and safe. They had a place for activities, and it looked like they had a lot of activities for their people. I ate a good lunch there. They had a library, a place for people to have their hair done, and a swimming pool. It was more upscale. From their menu, which had, like, French cuisine, you could order whatever you wanted, and they would fix it.

I visited The Palms, and I thought it was very nice. The population is a little bit older. I think the average age there is closer to 85. It's independent, assisted, and then nursing home. We live here, so we are 5 minutes down the road. The dining room looks nice. The room that I looked at was a 1-bedroom, and I also looked at one of their houses on the premises. The house was nice. The apartments were not as nice. The kitchen was smaller. Everybody seems very friendly, and they look like they try to keep the residents busy. They had an indoor pool, a workout room, and book clubs. I think the grounds need to be maintained better. When I was there, the side of one of the buildings needed to be pressure-washed; it was getting green mildew growing on it. One of the walkways had a wooden bridge over a lake, but its paint was all peeling up, and it just looks like they need to give a little bit more attention. It looks tired. They just need to maintain the exterior of the property better.

I think everything was very nice at Palms of Mt. Pleasant. It looked like they’re a good place to me. I really like it because I think they have more things to offer. I like the fact that people could have more social activity there. The staff was all nice and accommodating. They were very good. They had two or three different options for the rooms; and the rooms were very nice.

My mother's experience in assisted living in this facility was largely terrible. My mother has difficulties with mobility. She has been left lay in wet undergarments, and on one occasion was told by a staff member to wet herself in bed because the staff member could not help her. On another occasion she was left alone sitting on a toilet for 30 minutes. Staff were extremely slow in responding to call buttons for help, particularly at at night.Staff at times has refused/neglected to help her shower on scheduled days (including for five days after one occasion of being left in wet undergarments). While some staff there were dedicated and caring, the incompetence, abuse and neglect of others far overshadowed the good staff's efforts. The air conditioner in her room did not work through the South Carolina summer, and nothing was done despite reporting the problem multiple times.My mother has finally agreed to come live with us. Both my wife and I work in the health care industry and have extensive experience with elder care facilities- this is some of the worst care we have ever seen. Our advice to the facility- staff it adequately and train and supervise your staff. our advice to anyone considering this facility for assisted living for your loved one: AVOID IT no matter how slick the sales pitch, which in our case proved far from truthful.

The Palms was beautiful and we loved it. They had wonderful people. They had an indoor pool. However, my mother needed more care. I would recommend them to people who could get around on their own more because it is a lovely facility.
