Absolut has a few facilities, but the facility I went to see was the skilled nursing and the assisted living. This was closer to me, I liked it except when I looked at the other places I could see where it was lacking I guess. The people seemed very accommodating, and the residents seemed very happy there, but the assisted living area was a little depressing and it almost reminds me a nursing home.
I went to go to see the nursing home section, I was actually more impressed with that place, and it is more spacious. The ceilings for sure on this were really low, and the living area was kind of cramped. The grounds and the staff were very nice; I had questions and they answered them, and everyone seemed very happy there. But again I think I am used to working in a rehab area and I am used to what things look like and it doesn’t mean much to me but if I were to live there and it is supposed to be assisted there, you are not there for a nursing home.
My sister-in-law went to see to it, and she said that was depressing and it kind of was compared to these other places where they were so spacious but again this is an older place. I think a lot of people have taken into consideration that when you go into this business, you don’t want it to feel confining, you want to feel like they have freedom, and I think when you make things cramp together, it does not give that feeling for you. They had a beautiful backyard and they had a big front porch were a lot of the residents were, and so you can see that’s where a lot of them spend their time.
