This is a wonderful facility, built very recently, with great views of the nearby lake.
One floor is skilled nursing and long term care, and the rest is assisted living and a retirement community. The fact that Mirabella provides all these levels of care is a big draw for many people. And people are accepted into the skilled nursing unit even if they don't previously live in assisted living there.
All the rooms are private"”and huge, which is a big plus.
The staff is helpful and friendly. When a resident has a specific request or a special need"”such as makeup or a manicure, the staff simply makes sure it happens.
Meals are also specific for the needs of each resident. On the skilled nursing floor, there are several options available each day for each meal. The food is similar to hotel room service. Medical professionals who visit have nicknamed it "The Hilton of Skilled Nursing Facilities."
There are social gathering places"”including restaurants and bars"”throughout the place. There is also a state of the art TV and stereo area, which residents use often, especially to watch sporting events. The residents in assisted living are free to visit other floors if they're able, which gives them a sense of continued freedom and helps with the sense of camaraderie.
Organized outings are offered several times a week in addition to the regularly scheduled activities. They seem to strive to offer events and outings that meet lots of different needs. There's an upbeat feeling that there's always something going on at Mirabella.
