We, my brother, sister and I, encouraged our parents to move to Plymouth Place. There were many benefits to this community! It was in the same neighborhood, many activities were offered for enjoyment, a garage was available for their car, the apartment included a full kitchen so dad could still cook and he was a fabulous cook. It also offered guest rooms available for out of town guests and included future care for my dad.
As dad's needs changed he was transferred to the 3rd floor for nursing care, which over the next 2.5 years became his full time care. Mother was able to be with him as much as possible (except for sleeping together). With this wonderful care dad lived to be 95.
Now, mother who is 95 is in need of care. Being at Plymouth Place she can remain in her own apartment, as her needs change, for the rest of her life. This means a great deal to her and to all of us in the family. The outreach and care of the Plymouth Place workers is sincere, meaningful, and helpful. Our family has been very happy that our parents made the decision to move here.
Thank you so much for sharing your family’s experience at Plymouth Place. Keeping families together under one roof as long as possible and providing peace of mind to children is an important part of our mission. The story of your parent’s experience helps others understand how we serve our community with our full Life Care program. We’ve enjoyed having your parents as an intricate part of the Plymouth Place family. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know if you have any questions or concerns in the future.

If you are looking for skilled care, do not choose this facility. Doctor's orders are implemented only with the input of family. A family member can inform one nurse of essential nursing needs prescribed by a doctor, and a different nurse the next day will have no knowledge of it, and on down the line with the several different nurses. Nursing is lackadaisical, as are safety procedures. It should not be up to the family to make sure doctor's orders are being carried out. This is what you will encounter at Plymouth Place. Nursing staff takes offense when you point out shortcomings in the patient's care, and they do not follow through. You pay an awful lot of money at Plymouth Place just to have meds passed out. There really is no other nursing care and you cannot depend on the staff to monitor any new conditions or worsening of conditions that might develop--though that is what their website claims they do.

I thought Plymouth Place was a very nice place. It was an excellent facility. It really was like the Cadillac of nursing homes or as assisted living or independent living. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I have no qualms about going there for rehab, and if I ever needed independent or assisted living, I probably would consider them, but I don't think I can afford it. They seemed to have a lot of good activities for the residents. They had movies, bingo, and arts classes. One of my friends was in there for rehab on her knee. I visited her, we were talking, and all of a sudden it was time for her art class. I have not eaten there, but my friend said it was like going to a five-star restaurant. She said the food was absolutely fantastic.

My mom has Alzheimers/vascular dementia and needs constant supervision and assistance with all activities of daily living. Plymouth Place and their memory support unit, Greg's Place, is the closest thing to home I could ever want for her. The staff and caregivers are incredibly KIND people with respect for every one of their charges. My mom is content and happy living in her "moment". In the face of a devastating disease, I could not have asked for a more comforting place.

Sharon was a wonderful guide and Plymouth Place is quite impressive. I'm not ready to move yet but have your information and will contact you when the time comes.

This is a continuing care retirement community a couple of blocks, an easy walking distance, from downtown LaGrange. It is situated on the edge of the business district, in safe suburban area. While there is a rooftop deck, and a nicely planted garden/sitting area out front of the building, it more resembles a hotel-style where the focus is upon having all major amenities accessible indoors. This includes having the independent living apartments, assisted living apartments, dementia assisted living apartments, and skilled nursing home all under the same roof as is the bistro, indoor pool, exercise areas, libraries (there are multiple libraries) and extensive, grand common areas. The staff of the entire complex are quite professional and appropriately responsive to resident and visitor needs as would be expected in this upscale setting. Interactions here often resemble those one encounters interacting with a fine hotel staff. This is a very large place that provides tours and marketing events fairly often; they are worth checking out so long as one is aware that premium amenities do have a premium price tag attached. The apartments, whether independent or assisted, are available in a number of different sizes and configurations. All are nicely done and moderately upscale, meaning not quite as fancy as the common areas, but tastefully nice. The nursing home unit is well staffed and generally well run, located on the third floor. The food is above average to excellent, as served in assisted living or nursing home care. Nursing home rooms are of average size, with both shared and private rooms available. Of course continuing care community residents have the first dibs on accessing nursing home care.
