I am a friend or relative of a resident

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.
