I visited this facility
I did a volunteer stint here last year at Dignitas Newburgh House in Westland, MI. I decided that I could donate a few hours of my time to a couple of homes and help out in any way I could. I planted flowers outside and helped serve food inside. I found that the facility was clean, but the thing that struck me the most was that the residents were mainly in need of very serious care. Many of the homes I've visited in the past had residents who were self sufficient and seemed upbeat about life. I saw quite a few patients at Dignitas who were severely impaired and it really brought my mood down. You can't help but wonder what that person was like in the prime of their youth. Anyhow, I felt that they were well cared for. The staff was very friendly and seemed to enjoy their work, which looked very demanding. The home is in a decent part of town and I feel safe whenever I am in that area. I would recommend this home as I am sure it is probably a little less expensive than some of the other homes I've been in.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother resided at this care facility. She was not of sound mental health and borders on certain paranoia. The staff was very caring and seemed to understand some of my mother's rituals, although at times I am sure they pushed them to the limit. My mother's room was always clean and a room air conditioner, although not central air, was in the window. It functioned properly and always kept the room cool and comfortable. The floors were always clean and I am sure that was difficult because of the number of wheel chair bound patients in the hallways. The nursing staff was available for me to consult with about my mother's progressing disease and they seemed very knowledgeable. They did not hesitate to call when my mother was "out of control" or calling the "State" because some one had "oobviously" swithched her television with a newer one. The smell was tolerable. There were a number of residents who did not have bowel control, so it seemed, but for the most part, the staff was cleaning quickly and the "old" smell didn't last long. The cafeteria area was also clean and the drinking fountains were kept clear and functioning. I was genuinely pleased with the care my mother was receiving. They even went to the extra step to make sure she had a room mate she was happy with and the view she wanted. Unfortunately, my mother's condition progressed and we moved her to her own apartment with in-house assisted living.
