Bonaventure of Salmon Creek is pretty nice. It’s a nice building with assisted living and Alzheimer’s unit, too, but it’s a huge place and it wasn’t what we were looking for. We ate there and the food was good.

Bonaventure of Salmon Creek's rooms were very nice. They had bingo and all kinds of stuff going on. The food was really bad. The staff was really nice, and the girl that took us through the facility was really nice as well.

My husband is at Bonaventure of Salmon Creek. He's improving, so I'm going to leave him there for now. He's been there since July of 2015. It's a beautiful place and it has nice people. When we first came, they were pretty much understaffed and we're just concerned about the amount of care that he was getting because he's in the memory care unit, but he likes it a lot. It's new just a year ago. Their work ethics are fine. It's just sometimes they hire kids that are younger and they haven't had the experience they need and they put them right into memory care and that I think is a little too quick. They need to learn a little bit more about the traits of dementia and other diseases that the people are dealing with. The rooms are high ceilings and they have studios with large bathrooms. There are some one-bedroom units and that's what my husband has. It has a big living room, a good sized bedroom and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. It's really nice.

Bonaventure was a great facility. I think it’s brand new. I find it would be really comfortable for my dad because the rooms were very nice. We were able to eat there in their open dining area, and the food was very good. However, my dad wants to be somewhere closer to his kids.

A very nice facility with a great staff. The problem is that they over-charge for be so understaffed. There are not enough care givers to go around. With the amount of money one pays, they should have a lot more care givers on hand. The few staff I have spoke to agree, they don't have enough help. They really are doing Saints work as their pay is ridiculously low for the work they do. Bonaventure, people make more money working at McDonalds. Think about it!

Bonaventure had good food, nice staff, and nice residents. I talked to one of the residents and highly recommended this place. The rooms were more spacious than others, but the price was still out of sight. The dining room was modern with tables made up of stone. They had an exercise room and a theatre. They had washers and dryers, TVs, a billiard room, and several other areas where you can sit down and relax. They have an independent, assisted living, and Alzheimer’s.

We looked at Bonaventure of Salmon Creek. It is a new facility. It is retirement on one side and assisted living on the other side. It was a very nice facility, and it was brand new, but the biggest problem for us was that it was quite expensive. The rooms were nice. They actually gave me a tour, and I just dropped in without an appointment. I only saw two or three staff, but obviously they were very helpful. I saw the dining room; it was very nice. The facility was brand new, and it was very bright. I did see a couple of the residents, and they were very friendly with the gentleman who was giving me the tour. They did have a lot of activities. They have bingo. They have a Wii bowling room and a little area where they would bring people in and do concert. Also, they have activities like shopping trips.

From what I saw, there was something lacking in Bonaventure of Salmon Creek. It was staged very nicely, but I didn't know if what was staged would be workable with dementia people. What really drew my attention to it was that it was brand new so everything was clean and nice. The price is down right now, so that would make it extremely appealing too. They didn't really have any patients in there yet, and they did invite me back to come see it with people actually using the facility. I would really like to see people in there because they really had everybody isolated, and it sounded like the doors would be closed in the evening to each person's unit. I just didn't know how somebody like mom would operate in that type of environment because she really needs to have things open and not enclosed all the time. They set up the rooms so people could sit in their rooms and enjoy looking outside, so it was kind of like they were going to be encouraging people to stay more in their rooms, but they are welcome to go to the sitting area and stuff. It was kind of like they didn't really know what they were doing yet. I think once they get opened and operating and all of their personnel are in place and such, I would like to go see it again. If I were to rate if for mom, at this point, I wouldn't go more for a three, and this is mainly for the care -- not necessarily the facility itself -- but the level of care that I saw that would be given. Everybody was really energetic and everything because it was so new. I just felt like they needed more security cameras and stuff within the facility, at least, if the nurses were going to be in their office so that they have some surveillance of what is going on within the main unit. They don't have anything in place to let them know if somebody has gotten out of bed and stuff like that. For us, this is very important because she does fall occasionally because she doesn't remember to use her walker. I need that for her care, and they didn't have anything like that in place.

Bonaventure is a brand new facility with nice rooms and a nice dining room. The only thing that was difficult was it took them a couple of months longer to get their certification than I was told initially. It was supposed to be done in January, but they only got certification a week ago. That’s the only downside, but that’s not really their problem; it’s more of the State District. My parents have only been there for a few days, but they seemed to be settling OK. The staff seems friendly and knowledgeable. It's a lot better than the last place my folks were in. I’m very happy that they manage to do things that I wanted. I only had to mention something once, and it was done. They’re attentive and professional. The place is secure. They have trips outside, a media room, and a coffee bar. Half the building is retired, and the other half is assisted living. They still need more staff because they’re still so new, but the staff is very accommodating and nice. The surroundings are nice too.

Bonaventure is a brand new facility, and I met their chef. They have their exercise classes and gardening. They do pottery, financial seminars, and book clubs. They also have a fireplace; it was nice and quieter. The people I saw were friendly. I would recommend this place. Their independent living is a little different than the others because you could get one meal a day, and I think with the others, you didn’t pay for meals.

I went to Bonaventure, which was the newest and had the best location for us. It was for my mother. However, the one thing that we didn't like about it was for the memory unit; it was locked. There were different stages, of course, as you know and reasons why there were memory problems. Her memory problem stemmed from a stroke. She didn't have Alzheimer's, and her memory sometimes was excellent. However, I decided it wasn't for my mother. It might be for me in a few years. However, it was worth going. The food was good, and it was a nice facility. From what I saw, it wasn't as nice as some of them had. I knew they were building a unit next to that, so it was a mess. I didn't see any really good outdoor space for the people. The street in front of the building was very busy, and they had no fence up or anything. For a normal elderly like me, it would be fine, but not with people with memory problems. However, the rooms were very nice. One apartment had a living room, a bare kitchen, and huge closets. The one had almost a triple closet as you came in, and they had another closet -- which was a big double closet -- in the bathroom. I didn't have too much mingling with the actual staff per se basically, but I met a couple of the residents. They sat and had lunch with us. I was basically with the sales person, and she was very nice and good at her job. She is definitely not pushy; she just basically showed me what they had. They even had a two bench where the men or women could go and woodwork or fix something that needed to be fixed. The tools were up on a pegboard. They also had the garden section where they had places where you could plant things. They had some very nice features like a nice library. They had snacks available at any time. They also have an espresso machine, which was one of my favorites. That was for family, friends, and residents, which were very different.
