Reviews of Armstrong Senior Living

I am a friend or relative of a resident
We explained our situation to a social worker, and he suggested Armstrong Senior Living and another place. We like them both, but we decided to put my mother in Armstrong. It is a small place; there are only maybe 30 beds there. It is a little bit different than a lot of other senior living places. They have an independent certified nurse's aide there who takes care of their residents' needs. Basically, you can contract her for whatever you need for your loved one, whether to give medication or for housekeeping. Also, the price is reasonable. This nurse is very good. She is on top of everything, and I can talk to her. She also takes my mother to her doctor's appointment if she needs to. The help is excellent. They have been very good and very helpful with us with our mother. It also turned out that the residents are just wonderful. The moment my mom walked in, all the lady residents kind of gathered around her, and they just took her under their wing and made her feel at home. It is a very friendly community. It is not a fancy place, but it is homey. Everyone seems to take care of everybody. My mom has a room, which is small, but it is enough for her. She also has her own private bathroom. Mom is a very sociable person, and she is usually out in the public areas where everybody else is. They would play games and have someone to paint their nails and/or do their hair. So basically she uses her room for sleeping and for what she wants to do by herself. This facility serves good home-cooked meals. They are not fancy, but my mother likes it, and she eats well there. However, to me, the most important part is having friendships and knowing that she is being taken care of there.
