Sarah Daft Home was lovely and very homey. The rooms were large. They had kitchenette facilities. It was quaint. They have things that my sister would be interested in like book club and writer’s club, so it is for more functioning folks. We would really like her to be there. There were some people in the crafts room doing craft activities.

One of a kind! Very cool building, with a great staff. The residents seem to be very happy. I will definitely be considering this as an option for my parents.

My dad ended up staying where he is for now, at the Sarah Daft Home. It is a very large home built probably in the 1900's with senior care in mind. It's well maintained. The people have individual apartments of different sizes. They eat in the common room, and they have activities weekly. They do administer the meds and take them to their doctor's appointments, and it's close to the VA hospital. The food is adequate; it's not wonderful. The staff is wonderful. He's in a studio apartment, and it's large enough for a full bed, a dresser, a large-screen TV, and a La-Z-Boy, with an adjoining bathroom. But there's no kitchen; just a little area with a small fridge, a microwave, a sink, and a walk-in closet. I know they have a lot of musical groups coming in, and they do bingo and those kinds of things. In the summer months, they take them on field trips every other week. They go to, like, Red Butte Gardens, and sometimes they just go to Arctic Circle or the Stafford Place. They do take them shopping once a week, and they take them to the senior center, where they can dance and do things. So they're really a wonderful place.

I would recommend Sarah Daft Home. It was an old building, but it was classy, clean and affordable. The staff there was very well. There were over a hundred of residents there. The had activities and even hairdressers that got their hairs and nails done.

This facility is beautiful. It's not only an incredibly old facility, but a historic landmark as well. Time has only seemed to age this facility well like fine wine. Consequently, just like my friend. She's lived in this area of Salt Lake City all her life and I think she finds it comforting to spend her twilight years here as well. Most of her remaining family live in the area as well and she loves nothing more than visiting with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. The staff are extremely friendly. They not only treat my friend as her own person and not just a number or "another old person", but they also recognize my friend's family when they come to visit. They even ask often about her newest great grandson who was born premature. They even helped her to visit the baby in the hospital when things were looking grim and supported he emotionally when I couldn't be there.
