I visited this facility extensively and talked numerous times with administrators about moving my parents there. We ultimately decided to move them to a retirement community because it provided meals in a dining room, but in retrospect I wish we had chosen Scandia instead. Here's why:
First of all, it offers 2 meal plans; a resident can either choose a meal plan or opt to have food brought in from whatever restaurant or fast food place he or she wishes, paying only for the actual cost of the food itself! So much better than being stuck at a place where the food is marginal but the resident is required to pay for it regardless of whether it's eaten or not. Next, Scandia has a lovely courtyard with beautiful flowers, a fountain, and outdoor seating. Also, it has a very clean, uplifting coffee "shop," community gathering place, movie room, etc. It's in a nice neighborhood but is close to a new Walmart Neighborhood grocery store, church, and library as well. The rooms are equipped for seniors, with emergency call service and security. Such a nice place. A friend recommended Scandia because her mom lived there; they both loved it. So sorry my parents didn't get to live there.
I will be moving in to Scandia. It is a retirement community. Their apartment has a small kitchen, a refrigerator, a microwave and a dishwasher. I want a place where I can do some of my own meals and this is a fit for me. I thought the bedroom is pretty small, but other than that I thought it is just what I needed.
