I am/was a resident of this facility
We had lived in Helena House, and it was delightful. The staff and management were wonderful. The activities were involving and pleasant. The food was OK. It was just small. I think we were only 35 residents. They had religious services and bingo. The apartments had a kitchenette and a living area. It had a homelike atmosphere.

Helena House is by far the best provider of assisted living services in Beaufort. Mom has lived there nearly 2 years and the management & staff have addressed all/every request I've made. Mom really likes it there and there is always a warm, inviting feeling when we walk in the front door. The place is surprisingly clean. I couldn't be more pleased.

My father lived in the Helena House for about nine months and he liked it there, but he wanted to move back to New Jersey so he could be with family. He had a small apartment and was very independent. They provided his every meal and did everything for him. The staff seemed very nice. The only thing was that my dad was bored because he's very active and they didn't have a lot of activities there.

Visited this facility
Port Royal is a charming and friendly town, close to Parris Island Marine Base and some of the most beautiful marshy waterways. The Helena House is situated well, along a quiet road and next to a historic red train caboose. You expect there to be the same charm within, but sadly it fell short.
Both times that I visited, it took quite some time to even get someone to come to the front door. Once inside, my impression did not improve. If I were to base it solely on decor, it would have been better as it is not lavish, but simply and tastefully adorned. My feelings come from the lack of staff available to assist us, and the feeling that the ones we could find, were not as helpful as other communities we visited.
The other concern I had was the lack of a facility van to transport the residents. This is the first Assisted Living I have heard of that does not offer this vital service.
The grounds are quite nice and the rooms were also cozy and inviting. It is not a large building, and just one level, which helps add to the charm. The main gathering area as you walk in the front door, was also a nice placement and those residents gathered there, seemed very comfortable.
I know that they are working on improvements with the other issues and I feel certain that in time they will turn some things around.
