I visited this facility
Golden Living Center was nice, and even though it's kind of old, it was decorated in a friendly way with pictures kids drew. The standard shared rooms weren't anything fancy. They had a cafeteria, rehab room, and a community room.

I visited this facility
If you visit Grandpa in the evenings, he frequently had food on his clothing from lunch time. His nails and hair were also unkempt. I liked the people he ate dinner with, seeing them every night brought routine to Grandpa. His favorite nurse cared so much that he actually came to the funeral. It seemed like the afternoons were spent, as a group, in front of the television. I find that is better than being cooped up in his room, but not necessarily as interactive as it could have been. I really liked that they decorated for the seasons. Many of the patients didn't have visitors, so it was really nice for them to see seasonal change. There are a lot of windows, and the staff let us put a bird feeder in front of the window for Grandpa's room. They also let us put a small Christmas tree in his room, which Grandpa loved. The location was convenient for where I live, and they specialized in Alzheimer's care, that's the main reason we moved Grandpa there.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
The Alzheimer's unit at this facility is designed very thoughtfully to create an environment to help ease the anxiety of the residents. The exits are disguised to relieve the feeling of being trapped and the decor is warm and "homey" rather than stark and depressing like a hospital. The unit includes several different rooms that allow for different activities and comfortable environments to sit and visit with residents. There are also private rooms that were available for special occasions or sensitive situations. I specifically enjoyed the outdoor courtyard that was completely enclosed within the unit so residents to could enjoy the fresh air whenever they choose. The staff members are warm, compassionate, patient, and gentle people. I believe they genuinely cared for my grandmother and did everything they could to make her comfortable and relaxed. My family and I were so grateful for all they did during a very difficult and emotional time.
