I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mom has been at catholic care for six months, She first went to the meadows, when she arrived all she wanted to do was die. She is 95. She didn't, want to eat, get dressed etc, what a change in barely one week. The staff is wonderful. After a month she transferred to memory care because she was too high functioning for the meadows. She is doing great. She goes to mass each morning and is kept busy all day. She loves the staff and they are so good with her. And believe me she can be difficult. Her meds have been adjusted several times and she is such better spirits. We love this place. The staff is so easy to deal with.
There were several reasons why I chose Catholic Care Center for my wife. One of them is that they have higher staff to patient ratio than most anywhere else. I was very impressed with their activities. I believe that is very important for my wife to be involved with a lot of different activities. She has been there now for over two years and I couldn't be happier. They are just doing a wonderful job taking care of her. They have so many activities. They have movies, slide show presentations with just about any subject you can think of. They also have field trips were they go to bowling, play miniature golf, they go to stores, and they just go everywhere. They have entertainment from local schools, churches, musicians, and speakers. They also have crafts.
My wife is comfortable there. She has made friends and knows the staff. The one weak area they have is their accounting. They don't do a very good job with that. It's not that they are cheating; it's just that their invoice is difficult to understand when I get it at the end of the month. Nevertheless, I am very happy with the one that we have chosen.
