I am a friend or relative of a resident
A Touch of Heaven is a very loving place. All of the residents are given really great attention, and my mom loves it there. The residents, owners, and caretakers are all loving people. It’s a homey, loving, and excellent atmosphere for the elderly. It has a big, main living room, a little living room, and a large kitchen, so she can move around. She's in a wheelchair but can freely move in there.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Three years ago, we selected A Touch of Heaven because it was smaller, and we believed that she would received better care with less people, but I don’t think she has quite received that; it hasn’t lived up to our expectations. For one thing, a lot of her things have never been seen again, including her own personal items; it just disappeared. The rooms were very small; the one my mom is in is designed for two people, and there is just room enough to get about your bed and walk to the foyer, which is only a couple of feet away. It’s pretty cramped. Mom got to a point where she wouldn’t eat because the things that were served everyday included a lot of budget stretching menus like a lot of macaroni, a lot of hamburger, and salad everyday -- not much variation. I think once a week, they have music, and they used to play bingo.
We offer shared and private rooms. Private rooms are available in three different sizes and are priced accordingly. Shared rooms offer an additional savings to families who have limited means or when residents (especially women) enjoy the security and companionship of a roomie. We’ve been told our shared rooms are larger than those found in other facilities. There's plenty of room for dressers, bed-side stands, and an easy chair for each resident.
Bingo is nearly every day after lunch. Live music and Bible study are weekly. Nail care, hairdresser, bi-monthly outings to the resident’s beloved Dollar Store or Nail Salon, movie nights, and the daily ice cream social are all part of our activities.
Our meals are prepared from scratch by our chef who is a culinary graduate with eight-years’ experience in overseeing all dietary/cooking needs of a much larger facility. By design, many our meals are “soft” because as residents age, chewing becomes difficult. We provide an equal variety of beef, pork, and chicken entrees.
Of all things, we defend the love and care we give each and every one of our residents.

I visited this facility
The rooms and apartments at A Touch of Heaven are a little small yet still pleasant looking. The biggest reason why I didn't pick this facility is because they didn't have a 24 hour on staff nurse. I was more impressed with having 24 hour nursing staff than when they call a nurse or call the doctor when they need it. The staff seemed friendly. I wasn't really impressed with the dining part of it though. Apparently, there wasn't really a very big variety of choices on each meal. I can't really say anything that impressed me. I wasn't discouraged a lot, but I didn't see anything that impressed me. They could improve the variety of food they offer and also their activities don’t seem to be abundant. They didn't try to impress me with their activities. I don't remember any of them.
We think there might be a confusion about the differences between Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living facilities. By definition, Assisted Living facilities are Non-medical. We follow the orders of the residents' doctors and work with home-health visiting nursing and physical therapists. We do have around-the-clock, 24-awake staff always on hand to oversee and assist residents.
Bingo is nearly every day after lunch. Live music and Bible study are weekly. Nail care, hairdresser, bi-monthly outings, movie nights, and the daily ice cream social are all part of our activities.
Regarding our meals, We offer quite a variety at breakfast. We have a 6-week running menu. The only repeats during those weeks is at the residents’ requests so they have their favorites twice in the cycle. If residents do not like the meal offered, alternatives are provided.
