The staff that we met at Brookdale was pleasant. I liked the layout; the fact that it was one-story was important to me. Brookdale looked like a nice facility. Recommending them would be a consideration.

Sterling House was a wonderful place. I had a friend who worked with me in the court and she had lived there herself. Unfortunately, she died. She was the lady who went in for the court and asked residents how they were doing, what was going on and how things were -- their feedback was always positive. This lady loved it there. She went into that home herself. She was comfortable there. She went out and looked at other places but she came back to me and said that she liked Sterling House. I visited quite a few facilities because I work for the Lamar County Court, and we helped to place people. It was just a lovely place to be in, and their nurses were lovely people. The food was good. The upkeep was wonderful and it smelled clean. I think they all give the residents the freedom to do what they wanted to do. They have facilities for exercises if they were able. They had group singing and had all kinds of different activities. It was very good place.

I chose Sterling House because the price was right. They have some incentive and they have a very good menu. I have tried their food and it was very good. It seems that their services are of better quality. They have a few more services than some of the other facilities. They actually fit my parents' needs. The rooms are very good. They are very clean with fresh paint and fresh carpet. Also, Sterling House has a much cleaner front door appearance. It has good presentation when you walk in the door.

I've been at Sterling House of Paris for a visit, and it's a really nice facility. The staff are really helpful, seem very concerned, and professional, and as a matter of fact, this is one of our choices. When we went there, they were playing a game in the lobby. They also have a calendar posted with activities.
