I visited this facility
The facility was surprisingly large for what initially from the outside looks like a block of apartments. Trees and grass surround the brick building, on some sides the trees cover the whole building. Adds a lot to the atmosphere of being a quiet peaceful place, the theme is continued on the outdoor areas inside the complex with palm trees in the patio. There is even an option of gardening as an activity program. The hallways were neat and sterile, areas of the complex did feel like a hospital, but still a well maintained one.The entire staff was friendly in person, from the nurses to the directors. Things seemed a bit unorganized at times, but every staff member I passed by with the nurse I was talking with wanted to help. I did not interact very much with doctors. As for the older adults, most seemed understandably tired and depressed but there were some lively people. One older man struck up a conversation with me about his injuries, we talked and despite his need for independence he did not appear to be a lonely person and he seemed to be in good spirits and hopeful. Not that there weren't a fair share of people that did appear to be lonely and sad.There is nursing service available for different kinds of needs for the elderly from psychologists, pain management, individualized care plans, nutritional care, transportation, medication management and education to hospice program. There is care for Alzheimer's patients, sufferers of diabetes and treatment plans that are included in the board and room fee for bowel and bladder training, rehab, strengthening and other restorative programs. There is occupational therapy for day to day living as well as numerous physical therapy treatments and speech therapy. There are also activities like singing, fitness, music, games. They also have socials services for assistance during transitions to and out of high valley for services like dental, vision, podiatry and more.
