I visited this facility

My husband has a couple of clients down here at McDowell Village, so he visited some people in the village, and they love it. The staff worked very hard. The problem with them is that they don't have a high level of care for someone who is very ill. They were very upfront about it, but it is fine for independent and some assisted living. As for activities, I don't know specifically, but they have the usual clubs and outings. The rooms were very nice, very big, and well laid out. A lot of them have decks, they have very nice appliances, and if I remember, they have stove in the kitchen too. I didn’t taste their food, but the dining area was very well staffed and very nicely setup. The place was very active because there are a lot of independent living people there. There was lot of activity and a lot of bustle. The problem is that they don't provide a high level of care for serious illnesses. But for what they are doing, I think they are doing a good job.

McDowell Village is very nice. The staff is very friendly, and the grounds are well maintained. They have people come in and entertain. We don't get there very often, but every time we're there things are going on. They have church services, they take them out on scheduled trips, they go to games during the baseball season, they have a movie theater, and they have a popcorn machine. The staff treated my in-laws very well, and they seem to be very nice. Everybody seems to know who they are, and they addressed them by name.

The food doesn't excite me, but they seem OK. The menu is the same every day with some specials thrown in. We had lunch and dinner there, and it's OK. The folks that are there seemed to be very happy. The ones who are a little more mobile than my in-laws seem to do an awful lot, and they seem very pleased with what's available there. The facility itself is clean and very well maintained. I was able to walk around every floor of the place, and I found a library and a bar where they can go during happy hour if they want. It's very nicely setup. I would say it's more for someone who doesn't necessarily need a lot of assistance.
