I visited this facility

I was very impressed with Cascade, even now they send us activity charts for the month and have invited us to come to play bingo or particular activity or taking a trip with their bus anytime and go with them. The director who was giving us the tour was very nice and friendly. I would recommend this community.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We found a place for a good friend. It is called Cascade Inn. It is a very nice place. She lived there once before with her husband, and she liked it, but he wanted to go home, so they moved out. She moved back in there because she liked it before. They take good care of her. They are very attentive to her. They have nurses there 24/7. It is a nice place. It has activities. They serve three meals a day. I recommend this place to anybody.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We chose Cascade Inn because they take Medicaid. Also, the residents don't have to move when they graduate them from independent living to assisted living. They do have activities and I have seen the monthly calendars. She has gone to a couple of things. However, I have several issues with the staff. It's their training and their procedure. Regarding cleanliness, it is very good. However, I think their rooms are not made for those with mobility issues, i.e., getting walkers through doorways and the width of the hall in the room is too small. Apparently, her aluminum walker was also unable to get through the doorway, so it puts her at risk for a fall. I have been there for meals as well. They have a four-week rotation menu. Unfortunately, they use a lot of pre-processed frozen items, so they have a lot of salt and sodium issues. They did make a change after she moved in, to include "items" that the residents can always order if they don't want what the main offering is. However, they're not very good at estimating how many of the residents are going to want "X" and how many are going to want "Y," or how many are going to come to the meals because they frequently run out of something. The Cascade Inn is more interested in looking at their process and procedures than the needs the residents they have. The quantities of food for example, have been drastically reduced. They have had no special training in dementia, which impacts a lot of residents.

Provider Response

Thank you for your recent review of Cascade Inn. Our resident and family input is highly regarded and very important to all of us at Koelsch Senior Living communities. We are delighted to hear that your relative at Cascade Inn is enjoying the lifestyle and activities in our community. The safety of our residents is of the utmost concern at Cascade Inn and although our doorways and community entry points are well within safety and industry standards, we are considering future renovations to facilitate ease of mobility for residents who are using mobility devices. Because memory care is such an important aspect of Cascade Inn and Koelsch Senior Communities, all of our caregivers are qualified in specialty Dementia training within 90 days of employment and are required to have 12 hours of continuing education every year.

We understand that mealtime is an important part of the day for all of our residents at Cascade Inn. That is why we offer a full menu at each meal with eight delicious entrées to choose from. With all the selections we offer, we are improving daily on quantities available as we learn the specific food preferences of our resident ‘family members’. Just like ‘home’, the majority of our meals are made from ‘scratch’ while others are healthy selections from selective outside sources. We always welcome healthy suggestions and opportunities to make mealtime an enjoyable experience for everyone. Cascade Inn is passionate about serving our residents and family members with excellence in services and care and are honored with the opportunity to serve them.
