I visited this facility

The facility seemed to be very nice and up to date style wise. Everything was decorated very well and looked very nice. The only problem I ran into is that there were a lot of people just being left in the hall way with no one to talk to and nothing to do. The staff just seemed to avoid them as they were sitting in their wheelchairs. I do not think I would send anyone to live in a place like this. The facilities seemed like they would be great if you were just older and not necessarily in need of 24 hour attention. If you were able to live in one of the "apartments" I think that would be a great place for that. The whole idea of my grandmother sitting in the hallway with people avoiding her just kind of makes me sick to my stomach. Overall I would recommend this place for anyone who is not in need of constant care.

My experience with this facility is based on my grandfathers stay at the facility. The staff were very respectful of my grandfather, and have taken care to provide any services he requires. He can be kind of a grouch, so the fact he has very little bad to say about the place is a good sign. The facilities are all very clean, and I have never seen anything 'out of place' as I saw in some other facilities I toured with my grandfather. The dining is the only thing that could use improvement, as the options are rather limited, and I feel are not the healthiest options. The ice cream parlor is one of my grandfathers favorite places to visit in the facility. Other great amenities provided at Delmar South are the hair salon (although it took awhile for my grandfather to try it, since he had been getting his hair cut at the same place for almost 20 years) and the many 'field trips' that are organized for the residents. I'm so glad they take the time to keep my grandfather socially active. So often assisted living ends up causing the residents to become even more reclusive than they were at home. That is not the case at Delmar Gardens.I highly recommend visiting this facility!

Delmar Gardens was typically clean at any given time that I went to visit my grandparent and the food seemed decent but there were quite a few accidents that occurred in regards to other patients. My grandmother was more mobile than some of the other residents so she was able to do most things on her own or with some assistance but it seemed like the residents who were more dependent were dropped quite a bit and would have bed sores on a regular basis. As long as your loved one can take care of their self for the most part, you shouldn't have any problems. If your loved one needs quite a bit of care or attention, you may want to consider a different nursing home.

My father was a resident at this facility and they took very good care of him. When there was an issue it was quickly resolved. The facility was clean and the staff was friendly

I really didn't feel that there was any asset that made it an outstanding facility compared to others in the community for my folks.

Delmar Gardens has multiple locations and most are close to almost any Saint Louis region, I had a grandmother who stayed in the south branch of Delmar Gardens in South County Saint Louis. The staff was friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and unlike many assisted living homes there really wasn't that odd smell through the hallways. My favorite part about Delmar Gardens though, was the way they encourage family to visit. Many times they will sponsor events and will notify the family by mail as to when the happenings are going on. During these events they have activities for the grandchildren as well as live music and refreshments for older visitors. Also, they have a salon in the building so my Grandmother, who loved going to her salon could go any day she wanted to - It was just right down the hall!
