We found The Wellstead of Rogers & Diamondcrest for my dad. It is a little more expensive than we thought, but it is the first one to get back to us. The cleanliness and services are OK, but I like them to be a little more higher standard for the cost. They should have a check-in list because there were plenty of things they didn't tell me that came up later. I wish they had a list of check-in items. The room so far looks OK. My dad thinks the food is a little dry though. They overcooked it, and that's the feedback I get from my dad.

My dad is now on the waiting list at Wellstead. We really liked it because it seemed homey, and there are lots of things for the seniors to do. The staff was very nice to us. We saw two different apartments that were in the process of being freshened up at the time because people had just moved out, but they looked clean, we liked the layout, and the size was big enough. There’s a fitness room, an activity room, a restaurant, a TV room, a library, and Internet access. They also have a little church where a pastor comes in and conducts services. It was all very nicely kept. Overall, it had what we were looking for in a facility.

The staff was very knowledgeable and very nice at The Wellstead of Rogers & Diamondcrest. The facility was very clean. The rooms were gorgeous. They have real plan in place to keep residents up and moving. The facility was bigger, so it was not as personal but still very nice. All of the people seemed to be really happy, clean, and smell good. They had many activities, physical therapists, speech therapists, and counselors.

My in-laws are currently residing in Diamondcrest. The place is beautiful but the care they are receiving falls well short of acceptable. They are understaffed in providing aide to the residents. My father in-law often waits 30 minutes or more before someone responds to his request for help. By the time the aide arrives, it is often too late. The aides are very nice but they do not have the proper level of staff for assisted living. We have met with the director and head of nursing and all we hear is they will look into it and evaluate the level of staffing. Then in the next breath, we hear they are staffed at the appropriate level. If a resident doesn't need assistance, it is a beautiful place to live. However, if they need help with daily things - dressing, toileting, etc. I do not recommend Diamondcrest.

The Wellstead of Rogers and Diamond Crest was perfect. They seemed to be the only place that housed the dementia residents with similar levels. The rooms were adequate in size, and each of them had a window, which I think was important.

My dad ended up moving back to Minnesota, and he's at the Wellstead of Rogers. My stepsister actually found it, but she was just very impressed with the whole setting of the community and how it works. They have nine different levels of care, and they were very diligent about making sure it was a good fit on which level my dad went into, and even though he was really only a level one, they put him in a level two because he would get more individualized care there, and they knew that that was important after having been with me and having one-on-one care for the last six months, so I was impressed with that, and they just seem very caring.

I was there in April, so the outside really wasn't going yet, but I know they have a barbecue area, and they were going to be planting plants and stuff. My dad was able to put up bird feeders, and he enjoys the birds outside his window every single day. They do Bingo and an ice cream social every afternoon, they have different music, and my dad really enjoys that. He needed special care still on his toe and having some things done with his back to alleviate the pain, but they've been pretty good with being able to help him and give a little extra added care that he needs for that.

One of the things that they have is a memory box out front of every person's room where you can put things that help that person know that's their room, but it's also awesome because it tells a little about the person as well, and we really like that. The rooms are nice; you can decorate them as you would like, and that was important. It's very well-kept up, and that just impressed us.

There have been a few things because my dad is pretty picky, and I just emailed the gal and said, "You know, I was just a little concerned because breakfast is the most important meal to my dad, and he always had oatmeal, eggs, and toast. Now he's not getting that, and you took the time to ask me what his likes and dislikes were, and I am just wondering why you did that, if you're not giving him what he needs." My God, the next day they started, and he's been having oatmeal, eggs, and toast every morning since. They fixed it and changed it immediately.

I checked out Wellstead. It’s a top notch assisted living home and very expensive. It’s a 5-Star facility. The people were very accommodating, and I would recommend them.

The Wellstead have both assisted living and memory care. The memory care unit is probably the best that I can imagine anybody having. The staff was very attentive; there was plenty of help. They have 8 to 10 different levels of memory care, and there were staff in each one. The dining area was like they had three units, three different levels in one dining area that kind of would eat together. I thought that was very, very well, and then they each had their own sitting area if they wanted to just sit; it’s going to be in their rooms. The rooms were -- for those patients basically -- plenty of room. The rooms have bathrooms, and then it had a big L; part of that was for the bed and the other part was the sitting area. They could have a chair or couch and their television and so forth in their room.

The grounds were beautiful. They had a park like setting so that in the nice weather they could be put outside, they had gardens, and those that were capable could actually plant flowers and work in the garden. They showed me a couple of activities, and I actually was able to observed one group doing the makeup class. It’s got some industry on the opposite side of the road, but on the same side of the road there’s a very nice residential area.

I went and visited Wellstead of Rogers. I like it very much and also put down money for a reservation for my aunt. I met with their person, and they’re working with us. The apartments are very accommodating and a good size. Everything is clean and in top-notch condition, and it’s a lovely facility. They have many activities from occupational to physical therapy. They have a meeting time where they do current events. I was very impressed with the whole program and the staff; they were very friendly. I wouldn’t mind living there.

I've come across The Wellstead of Rogers through the internet. It's a very beautiful facility. It's very up-to-date and really nice. I thought the staff was really good too. However, they were pretty much filled up at that time.

The Wellstead of Rogers was very well kept. The staff was friendly. They had nice programs for residents. It had a warm, traditional, and welcoming feeling.

Mom and Dad want to move to The Wellstead and they really didn't want to go anywhere else. They had put a deposit there to get onto their waiting list. It seemed like a really nice place. They have a lot of stuff right there so that my parents don't have to go anywhere. They have community areas and they're better than what they have here. Also the staff there was friendly.

The Wellstead of Rogers is a relatively nearby facility. It's seems very confined. The person that we were supposed to meet wasn’t there, but somebody else showed us one apartment. Their apartment has two bedrooms, but the living room or what they call the family room and kitchen were very bland and it just didn’t appeal to us. I didn’t saw anybody in the activity room. It was a large facility, but we didn’t really see any people.



Blobby August 07, 2013

Nice facility, the only good thing I have to say about them. Severly understaffed resulting in patient neglect, terrible care, and putting their patients in danger of their lives. If you have a loved one there - keep a VERY close eye on how they are being cared for. If you don't have a loved one there, keep it that way.

The Wellstead of Rogers is beautiful and very well-run. It is new and has everything we wanted. We even had lunch there and they have a chef. You could order off a menu and the food was wonderful. It was also expensive. It is only twenty minutes from us, but also twenty minutes on freeway, which has very heavy traffic and it would not be convenient for any of our family. If you were going in there for independent living, you could play Bingo and they take you out to go shopping, and have all those things available to you, so you can transition from independent living all the way through to dementia care. Diamond crest is the dementia portion, which is in a different building and there they have five neighborhoods.

I thought the lobbies of this assisted living building were very nice. The atmosphere of the place was relaxed and I could see how an elderly resident would enjoy living in this facility. The staff members were incredibly friendly. They helped me find my grandfather and did not hesitate. They were also very friendly to my grandfather. He seemed to get along well with the staff members, as they had a nice conversation about the weather. After being introduced to my grandfathers living quarters, which were quite spacious and comfortable, he showed me to a dining area, where the food was enjoyable. I would say my experience here was definitely pleasant, and I am glad this is where my grandfather has chosen to live. If I have any other relatives which need assisted living care in the near future, I will show them the Wellstead of Rogers, because it is a place where I would like to have relatives stay because of the wonderful staff and living space.

The staff is extremely professional and seem to care deeply for my grandmother and the other patients. My grandmother, who is 72, can be very difficult as her dementia worsens. But they keep her comfortable, have given her effective medications that have made her more lucid and ready for visits from family. The rooms seem very nice, clean and comfortable. There's a vintage-style drink shop, musical entertainment and lots of activities that keep residents like my grandmother entertained and busy on a daily basis to keep their minds engaged. Whenever there's a problem with my grandmother, the facility is quick to call and let the family know. There have been a handful of times when she has attacked the staff, but they have managed to subdue her without hurting her and have adjusted her medication accordingly. It is a very expensive facility, and it's draining my grandmother's savings. However, it's vastly preferable to have allowed her to live alone in her condition. She seems happy at Wellstead.

My dad's stay started out fine but with new management has come high staff turnover, much less individual attention, screwups in orders, and some really awful meals. We are looking to move as the care is no longer worth the top dollar price.

My aunt and uncle moved to Wellstead when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. It was a very tough move for her and she did not want to do it but they made the transition much easier for them. They had a ton of activities for residents to do and it wasn't long before she had her weekly routine down and was more at home. She was always calling to talk about what they did that day and playing cards was her favorite. When my uncle had to be moved to another room they brought her to his room every day so she could see him. The staff were very friendly, patient and helpful. Visiting there was much better than I expected it to be. They made it feel more of a home with small apartment type rooms and not like a hospital as much. Overall it was a great experience working with them.
