Mother is in Westwood Commons. It’s very good. It’s beautiful and very nice. It’s not a big place; it’s a small place. Everybody gets to know everybody, so it’s nice. The people that run it know all the clients very easily. It doesn’t take them long to know the clients. It’s a great home; it's very homey and clean. It got new facilities. They take people on rides to places like Walmart. They go on a bus just to take rides just to see the countryside which is nice. She has a big room. There’s a couch and a bed in separate location so it looks like she has a studio apartment. No stove, kitchen, or sink. They’re very accommodating. She couldn’t be in independent living anymore. She needed help and supervision to give her pills and things like that. If she needed more help, they’ll give her more help. They do whatever she needs to have done. The nurse that runs the place is just there during the day. There’s a doctor’s office that’s close by that sees patients every week if you sign up with that doctor. And the people that are there are available at the drop of their head if something happens. But you have to realize that if you’re a person who needs a lot of medical care, it might not be the place for them. It’s just assisted living -- not a lot of nursing care. Any care you do at home, they can give that. They don’t check if you’re still breathing and all that stuff. Maybe there are some people that they really check on because some people have medical needs done during the night. But if you have a loved one that you want to be resuscitated or they’re close to that edge that something could happen to them, that might not be the place for them.

I visited this facility
I thought the overall atmosphere of this assisted living home was comfortable and calm. The staff seemed to be very polite, and truly cared about the residents. They have church every Sunday, and they have events for the residents to participate in on different different days; like movies and bingo. The dining room was different then I had thought it would be, all the residents have assigned seating. I asked why this was and they said because some residents don't get along with others. The cnas do room checks every night, about every one to two hours or so. The only thing that I think they needed was better security, or alarms on the front doors. A resident with dementia had left the facility and was about two miles from it, she told us she was going home. Over all I thought this was a great facility. If you would like a place for your loved one, I would absolutely recommend this place!

The staff is very friendly and caring. When you enter the front door, the receptionist is always warm and cheerful. The nurses are always caring and patient with the residents. The wait staff is quick and pleasant.The diningroom is an inviting atmosphere and residents are able to sit at tables with their friends. The food is average but nutritionally sufficient. A nice feature is that family is invited to stay for meals with the resident if they would like, especially during the holidays. The bedrooms are nicely appointed and there is room for the resident to personalize the room to their liking. The private rooms are large and very nice. The doubles are a bit more crowded but still a decent size.The community has an active recreation program. There are a lot of fun activities ranging from church to arts and crafts for the residents to take part in on a daily basis. A favorite of my Grandma's is bingo.Overall, this has been a great new place for my Grandmother to call home.
