My description of Primrose, Decatur is a Spacious Senior Living Luxury Resort type home.
The facilities are wonderful with great meals, a movie theater, exercise room, ice cream parlor, hair salon, many comfortable fellowship areas through out and a staff that is more than just employees. No matter what their particular duty is they will offer to help with whatever your need is, and with great care and compassion.
We are in our mid 70's and live in Tucson, AZ. We have visited senior living facilities in Arizona,, Indiana and Illinois. We choose Illinois to be closer to our four children and their families. Many of the other facilities are nice but when we walked into Primrose we knew this was where we wanted to be. It was like a home and not an institution. They have allowed us to stay in a vacant Vlla to see how this life style fits us. Now we can hardly wait to get back to Tucson to sell our home and move into a Villa at Primrose where we will have access to everything in the larger Senior Facility (Home), yet remain as independent as our age will allow.
When we arrived it was apparent that we were expected by Staff and residents alike and that they wanted us to be a part of their community. Kate, their sales director went out of her way to make us feel welcome and wanted; as did the Director, Leslie, the Chef, Tina and the Activities Director, Cathy. I should mention all of the staff but have not learned their names as well. We always felt the entire staff wanted us to feel like we were all just one big caring family. You can have a wonderful facility (which they do), but it takes a caring and loving staff to make it family.
If you want to be a part of something wonderful and beautiful, Primrose is where you want to be to have the best quality of life for this time in your life.
