I really like The Samarkand. They are great and had everything you can think of, including a fitness center and café in addition to the dining room. The units and apartments are beautiful had a patio and balcony. The grounds themselves are just gorgeous. There’s lot of activities and interests groups.

My experience was very positive. The nice thing about Covenant Retirement Communities is they allow people to stay there for two nights and arrange for visitors to have meals with the residents in their dining rooms. You're allowed to explore the local community, and they had religious activities like bible studies and prayer meetings.
The staff was very pleasant and very enjoyable to meet and talk with. The Samarkand was a former hotel, and the rooms were not standard. They were different in shape. They were very nice and varied in size. There were multiple buildings there. The dining room was very nice, and they had three meals a day. They had outings where they take the residents on the bus, and they had various activities on the campus itself. I liked the religious aspect of it. They were very focused on the Christian faith, but they did not discriminate based on faith.

This facility is the place that m family and I chose as a placement for my mother. She was diagnosed with dementia, and could not live at home any longer. After visiting a number of similar facilities in the area, we chose to place my mom there because they had a comfortable feeling facility, accommodating staff, and had a living space available quickly. Now that she has been there for a while, we are all still happy with the space, but haven't always been as confident with their day to day care staff. There were a number of problems in setting up her prescriptions being dispensed, for instance. But on the whole, we are confident in the living situation, and most importantly, my mom is happy there.
