I am a friend or relative of resident

The alzheimer's unit is awful. They don't clean the rooms unless they know a relative is coming in. They don't keep the residents clean either. There is constant staff turnaround and they are usually understaffed. Don't expect bed sheets changed either. Building is nice and the other standard assistent living seems good from what I see, but don't put your relative with dementia there. They can't handle their needs.

I visited this facility

It was a very nice facility. Their activities were fine. They had an art studio and they had a lounge. They showed movies there. They had lots of programs. They had fitness programs and they even had a belly- dancing program. They had transportation that would take them anywhere they wanted to go.

I visited this facility

My family and I could not be more happy with the experience we had at, The Hearth. My mom has passed but the last 3 years of her life she made new friends at The Hearth. The staff and residents there are our family now and always will be.
