I visited this facility

This assisted living facility is easy to get to"”if you know where you're going. The building is located off the main road, private but not secluded. There is adequate parking, and it's next to a football field with additional parking. This is a beautiful facility from the outside. And the attention you get when you walk in the door is the highest level of quality I've ever experienced. Someone"“from the receptionist to the director"”greets you and is quick to meet your needs. There's a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The building is older, but has been well maintained. And it's decorated in a lovely fashion, with fresh flowers on the dining room table. There are also a few different areas for residents to congregate in"”including a library, conference room, and TV room. There is a also a beautiful outside patio and gorgeous yard and gardens, which some of the residents help tend. Some rooms have outside decks near the ocean; although the ocean's not quite visible, it still provides a soothing ambience. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and accommodating, with lots of closet space. There is a great staff to resident ratio and the residents all seem well cared for, in a personal and personable way. There is also an impressive dietician and the food offered is varied and fresh and plentiful, with an eye toward presentation. Engaging activities are offered for all residents, but particularly those on the memory care floor. Potential drawbacks: It's one of the most expensive facilities in the area"”and it's not part of a continuing care network, so residents who begin to need more care might have to move. -This reviewer, Debra Offenhartz, is an aging specialist with a master's degree in social work.
