Calaroga Terrance is where my mother is, and she is very happy there. The staff is very friendly, she said the food is good, and they have extracurricular activities. They are updating the place all the time, so that’s nice too. They offer bingo and shuffle board, they have programs every once in a while, and for Veterans they have holidays. My mom reads a lot, and they have two libraries where she frequently stays. The price is right, and she has lots of views of the city and of the river.

Calaroga Terrace is a dated building. We liked the location, and the closeness of the cafeteria to the rooms. We liked the ambassador program that they have because not all do that. There’s independent living and there’s a little bit of a step program before you go to assisted living. The other thing that we liked is they have an all-inclusive meal program. That’s two meals a day. The food is fine, we ate there a couple of times.

I think we are going to move to the Calaroga. We walked through the facility and saw apartments twice. We ate dinner there one night, met a lot of people who were very friendly and we liked it. It's also a good location for us. The food was very good. The staff was very nice. She really introduced us to people and took us to sit at the table with other people to meet. It was very satisfactory. The rooms are very nice and they have little balconies. We are looking for a large room, so we have to wait. It's not as luxurious or beautiful as some of the others, and it doesn't have a pool, but you can't have it all. I liked a lot of things there; I liked the fact that the people are friendly and that I did not have to put a lot of money down.

The apartments are very nice. We chose Calaroga because it just felt the most comfortable of the places we looked at. The staff is wonderful; they are all very friendly and helpful for my uncle. The food service is almost always very good, he has been really happy. The best part is that it's flexiable, he is able to ask for as much assistance as he needs but is given complete privcy and freedom. I'ts close to the MAX line, so he's able to get around really easily. His apartment room is very well kept and modern. We feel very good about our decision to move him there.

I visited this facility

This facility, which offers both assisted living and skilled nursing, is five floors high"”and looks almost like an office building, with the exception of the nurse's station. There is ample parking onsite for visitors. It's located near Legacy Hospital, which has a good reputation for care. Inside, it is very clean. The common areas are homelike"”with nice furniture, pictures on the walls and cozy spots; it doesn't feel institutional. There's not much difference between assisted living and skilled nursing"”apart from the residents' greater freedom in assisted living. That might make it easier for residents to transition if needed. There are lots of outside activities offered including movies, classes and casino trips"”especially for the higher functioning residents, which is true for most of the residents there. Transportation is provided if needed. The dining room is very elegant, with nice place settings and attractive food served. Staff will also deliver to residents' rooms if needed. There is 24-hour RN supervision, which is impressive and unusual, as opposed to having one on call. The residents' families are very happy with the care there. Staff members seem very alert to residents who need more care, and are very diligent about care conferences and keeping family members up to date on care. One thing to double-check before considering becoming a resident: There is a high staff turnover going on right now, even staff that has been there many years"”and the staff that remains makes no bones about letting people know their discontent with the management. An additional drawback it that it's pricey for the area.
