I visited this facility

I found the staff at Sterling House (Brookdale Place Portage) to be pleasant, well informed, and courteous. The facility was clean and it smelled good. Carpeting was clean. Their dining room was with white tablecloths. They have a wait staff to bring the meal to you. You select an entrée with a choice of two or three selections. I saw the menu, and it looked well done. They have a fitness room with exercise equipment. They have tours and groups that meet for various levels of ability.

I visited this facility

Sterling House is two floors. One is for the Alzheimer’s, upstairs, but it is called assisted living. I visited it, but they thought my wife was a flight risk. The rooms looked very nice, and the price probably could have been all right, but they didn’t think they could handle her. The staff was very good. They showed me around, and it was clean, and everything looked good.

Sterling House was very clean and very homey. The residents were taking part in an activity when we were there, and they seemed to be enjoying it. They did not have any room available, though. The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. It was definitely well maintained. The dining room a little small but very clean and homey.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

It's always difficult when a person reaches their elder years and starts losing independence. Assisted living seems to be a nice transition for elderly folks who are all at difference independence levels. My grandmother doesn't need full-time care, but after losing her driver's license, she doesn't have the ability to drive and pick up her groceries or medication or grandkids anymore. It was difficult for the family to get her to agree to make the transition to assisted living at Sterling House of Portage, but she likes it a lot more than she expected. There's always somebody to play cards with (they bet with pretzels!), and when she gets tired she can go back to her room and nap without having to worry about shooing company out the front door. Sterling House is very nicely-appointed. The landscaping outside is just beautiful, and my grandma enjoys taking walks with my mother and I when we visit. Her room is fairly large and she doesn't have a roommate, which is nice because she doesn't have to share her private living space with anybody else. The nursing staff all seem busy but friendly every time I visit. Our family gets peace of mind that my grandma is being well-cared for, and she's not on the road where she could potentially endanger lives. And, most importantly, she's receiving a quality of care that nobody in our family has the time or ability to provide, and I'm very thankful for that.
