Reviews of Ecumen CountrySide | Independent Living

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Our family, our grandmother included, really liked Countryside as not only a place to live, but as a place to belong. It offered both independent and assisted living options so we knew as out grandmother's health declined and she needed more help. This was perfect for us because most of the family lives 45 minutes away.The staff was very friendly and everyone knew the residents names, including the groundskeeper. Each time we would visit the staff would know who we were and who we were going to see. This was a very personal connection and I felt the staff really cared. The staff also hosted events for the residents almost daily. Bingo, movies, theme parties, and many other activities helped my grandmother to stay sharp and happy. We did dine there on occasion and I have to say the food was pretty good. I remember going to other retirement homes to see my great grandmother and that food was slop compared to the pork chops and stuffing, spare ribs, fried chicken, and other real meals we had at countryside.
