I visited this facility
I like that Burcham Hills has detached homes for one thing, but they were smaller than what we wanted, and they did not have the two car garages that we were looking for. We had a complementary lunch, and we got to meet with some current residents. We were told about things like their exercise program, and we were given a tour of their facility for nursing care and assisted living. We were taken around to some of the areas where there were recreational activities. We didn't spend as much time there as we might have because they really didn't have the prime interest for us. It was a good looking community -- a little bit dated -- but it seemed very comfortable. It is a place we might have considered had they had the right facilities.

This facility was absolutely glamorous. It was like walking into a 5-star hotel. The staff were so friendly and it didn't have the atmosphere of an assisted living facility. The only drawback for our family was that it was not Medicare funded. It was private pay only.

The facility is very nice, but we didn't get a full picture of the services available. For instance, they told us there is a nurse on staff 24/7 which is true. They did not tell us that she would not provide such basic services as listening to lungs of an asmatic patient, and would not necessarily respond when the caregiver would summon her for a nosebleed that wouldn't stop for my blind father. They stated a caregiver would respond w/in 5 minutes when summoned...often it is 10 and the last time I timed it it took 17 minutes. My father is blind and my mother has dementia...they really need the attention we were promised.
