I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom had been going to C.C Young for about 15 years for their senior activities, even though she didn't live there yet, so she knew almost everyone when she moved in, and it was an easy transition for her. The general staff, such as the housekeeping, the people in the kitchen, the maintenance, they are all great. I think they have adequate staff. They have probably six to ten different activities a day. They are very, very active. They have all different levels of exercises. Mom does chair exercises because she has a bad hip. She plays bridge three or four times a week. She plays bowling on the Wii computer every week. She is in the choir, they practice once a week, and then once a month they go over to the assisted living or the hospital to sing for the residents that can't get out. They have movies, I think it's once a month. What I really like is they have free transportation to the grocery store and the shopping center every week by bus. If she wants to go, she can sign up and go to the grocery store. They have free transportation to the doctor. They have painting, but she doesn't do that. They have poetry writing, a book club, and jewelry making. The funniest thing is that in most senior places all they do is Bingo, and they don't have Bingo, but they have a lot of different stuff. She has a remodeled apartment, and she has a full kitchen with a granite countertop, stainless steel appliances, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, stove, all brand new. She has an eat-in kitchen, a living room, a very large bedroom, a large bathroom with a walk-in shower, and they have a washer-dryer connection in the room. The staff and the residents, everyone speaks, and you wear a name tag and everyone learns your name and they are very responsive. They have maintenance on the staff twenty-four hours a day. And, another thing that I like is they require all of the residents to wear a life alert, which is a necklace for emergencies, and they are monitored twenty-four hours a day. They have housekeeping every other week; they completely clean her apartment and change the linens on her bed. She gets two meals a day in the dining room. She loves the food. They always have two or three meats, five or six vegetables, salads, desserts, bread, and ice cream. It is like a cafeteria. She has been there for five months, and she is just happy as can be. It is very clean, and I feel it is very safe. I think they care about the residents. Every one there including maintenance, is always working around; repairing, and working in the yard, they always have flowers, and all the staff seem very happy to be there. All the residents seem happy; everyone speaks. It is just a really nice place.

When my grandmother's dementia got bad enough she wasn't able to live on her own, my aunt moved in with her. But quite soon after it was decided she needed to be somewhere with professionals. So she went to CC Young. It was a very nice facility, clean and pleasant. Grandmother didn't like it there, but she really just wanted to go home, her not being happy there was not a reflection on the facility itself. We live very nearby, and visited often. Grandmother preferred to read in her room most of the time, but a lot of the residents liked to be out visiting, and there was always a crowd of them talking or playing cards, or watching tv out in the common areas. The staff were all very friendly and seemed patient and kind. We were very happy with them. The only problems we had were when Grandmother kept falling, and that wasn't really their fault. They wanted to tie her to her wheelchair and keep her right by the front desk where they could watch her, which she hated. This issue was never really resolved well, as my Grandmother passed away soon after this issue arose. Overall it was a good facility.
