I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
it was a very disappointing experience for my Dad. Safety (Dad fell twice that we were told and a third evidence of a fall we were not told about and questioned by the Dr at a hospital visit) and hygiene ( calls were made to family about condition of resident. phone calls to floor had to be made to correct situation) were major concerns. Staff were complaining about "understaffing"..facility told us that they were fully staffed...IF that was the case then those there on floor were not doing their job. Met with director, told that they would do a better job...offered us a room at a different level of care for the same price.Dad was in the hospital after an incident at DP facility and we were not going to send him back. We had made other arrangements. I need to tell anyone thinking of putting a loved one at DP to please check it out thoroughly, visit often to keep your eyes open .I am in the medical field and I think my overall opinion is well founded. ,

Dirigo was a beautiful place but too expensive, and if their income decreases in five years, they will make them leave. It was independent, but they had people on- site, plus housekeeping and nursing if the person needs help with medication. It was a beautiful loacation that had about the same things as the other places.

This a great place for independent living and would most likely picked to live. The dwellings are spaced out nicely with wooded views abound. There is a lake for fishing which was a plus for us. The choice of home plans was varied and they are expanding. This would make it possible to make decisions as it was being built. Food was delicious, meals are not offered in the plan with the cottages but you can purchase the meals in the diningroom. Due to the distance from family this is not on the top of the our list. Wish it was further south it would be my first choice.
