This is a family run group home that creates a sense of family that for the last year half of my dad's life really made a difference in terms of his well being both physical and emotional. Colleen, Reynaldo, their two young daughters, and their staff run the place like the home it is. The level of care far exceeded our previous experiences in other group and nursing homes and beat the care at a pricy rehabilitation hospital. Two staff members are on duty at all times and in the morning there are three, so dad never had to wait or repeatedly call for help. During his last months the regular turning and wound care was done punctually and with great compassion.
There is an open friendly vibe to the place with humor and compassion for all. We celebrated birthdays, new borns, and holidays (the pot luck Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with all the residents and their families was lots of fun). With my dad's passing we still feel connected and we'll stop by from time to time to see the family and the other residents who we have come to know and love.

My dad did not want to go into a nursing home, but he was discharged from the hospital not yet ready to take care of himself. We found Serene Setting, and were thrilled. So many nursing homes are sterile, cheerless places devoid of any character whatsoever, and that's exactly what we did NOT want, and what my dad would not have accepted. He'd already been in perfect and sterile, and hated it.
My dad was at Serene Setting for three months or so, until he got his strength back. He was very happy there. So many older people are unable to communicate, which puts them at risk for being abused. My dad was very alert and knew exactly what was going on, and he told us that the residents were all treated very well. The food was good (and he is picky about his food!), and they were sweet about catering to his desires. They would make him a sandwich any time he asked, and always made sure he got food if he missed a meal while at dialysis. Although he wanted to be in his own home, he was happier here than at any of the other nursing homes he had been at. And never once was he allowed to go too low on his blood sugar, like the other places that ignored watching out for him. Praises for Serene Setting! Thank you.

I visited this facility
I visited Serene Setting. It was like a home, with pretty trees -- also with walking trails outside and a nice patio area, and that's what was good about it, but when you walked in the house, it was an older house, it was dated, you had multiple people in most of the rooms, and we only had a couple of rooms. I was not impressed. All the ladies were sitting outside having their dinner. I watched what the people were eating, and what I saw on their plates didn't even look appealing. It looked like slop to me, and most of the people left it behind. So, I could say that they didn't like it very well. We went into the bedroom, the doors in the closet were flimsy and not even set in there straight. However, the people seemed to be caring and the people who were working there had worked there for many years with these people. Their attitude was good. It was just not visually appealing to me.
There was a little garden area outside where they could do a little box gardening, and there was a trail all the way around the house that they could go walking on. There was flat screen TV on the wall with several Lay-Z-Boy chairs, but they were worn and the carpet needed to be replaced in the central area. The central area should be very appealing and nice. To me, it was not. I couldn't say it was dirty, but it was old and used. Beyond that, I didn't see anything. It was just not a place that I would put my mom.
