I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother is already in a home called Limestone Manor. It's a veteran's assisted living and only veterans or veteran spouses can be admitted there. My dad was a veteran, so they're helping with the finances there. She does pretty well on her own. This morning, she even changed her bedsheets by herself. It took her a while because she couldn't do anything and was holding on to something, her walker and all. Even though they have people there to help her, she likes to do things on her own if she can do it. I heard a lady when I was on the phone with her this morning, she came to the door and said, "We're going to wash bed sheets today, you want me to help you change them?", and my mom said she's already done it. The lady said, "Now you know you're supposed to wait for us to help you. That's why we're here." They take good care of her. One thing she loves is the best food that she has ever eaten in her life. They have a cook there. My mother is particular about eating other people's cooking. When she was at home, she didn't like the Meals on Wheels coming by with food because she didn't know where it came from and who cooked it. But she said, this place, they give you so much food, they fill you up and it is so good. She says she has not had one thing that she didn't like. Now she doesn't like fish at all but they served some grilled tilapia one day, she tried it, she liked it and she ate it. I couldn't believe it. The cook there is such a nice lady. Everyone there is so sweet and so nice. All of the attendants, the director, and the assistant director. She helped me with all the paperwork because I had no idea what I was doing, trying to get her into the home. She put me in contact with the man who could help me and they were all just wonderful. They had daily activities. They have them sit in a chair and do exercises with their arms and their legs. They play bingo and give prizes. As far as I know, bingo is the only game they've played so far. One day though, it was St. Patrick's Day and it was before she moved in, we were just there visiting and they were making crafts. They had done a mason jar, painted it green, and put glitter on it. They put fake flowers in it that were green. They made it for St. Patrick's Day. She missed out on that, but I'm sure they'll probably do some more crafts pretty soon for Easter. They're all wonderful, nice, and always in a good mood, smiling. My mom's a little hard of hearing, so they know they need to speak up for her and they do. The cleaning lady is very nice to her and even the handyman they have. He is very thorough and they have him hanging pictures and stuff. He's as sweet as he can be. and I haven't met anyone there who is not nice. The community is very nice. I think they only have 20 or 30 rooms there. They're all on one wing so everyone has a window. Everyone hangs wreaths on their door, that way they can tell if the room is empty. I told my mom that the ladies in the hallway told me to tell her that she needs to put her wreath on because everybody has a wreath on their door. It matches the seasons too. I got her a little wreath of spring flowers and all that and hung it on the door. They change it by season and which makes it look very nice down the hallway. Beautiful paintings are hanging down the hallways too. I think some of the people who had lived there have painted some of those, but some look so professional. They're just gorgeous paintings and they're all framed in. It's also always so clean. To the end of the hall, there's a larger area where the nurse's desk is at. There is also a big, round, gorgeous oak table. It looks like an antique and there are chairs all around it. There's a huge television and a lot of the ladies sit out there and watch TV. They could watch it in their room, but they'd rather sit out there and talk to each other. You go to the right and then there is a commons area, and that's where the front door is at. They call it the commons area because the assistant director has her desk in that room but there's also a huge gas rock fireplace and there are all kinds of beautiful furniture that look antique. There are couches and chairs and tables all around the fireplace where they can gather and talk. It's just a wonderful room. At the end of that room, there's a long table and that's where they sit and do crafts or play bingo. That's where they have church too. They move the chairs around and they have church on Wednesdays and Sundays. The dining room where they eat has gorgeous curtains and it looks like you're in a fancy restaurant. The tables are all round and they all have white tablecloths. I haven't tried their food yet because they only cook a certain amount to not waste food. The director told me they do not serve leftovers. She said, if I want to eat with my mom, I should tell them the day before and the cook will make more and have enough to eat. The people that live there have a choice of whether they want to eat a large portion, an average portion, or a small portion. My mom always asks for a small portion, but she said it's still a lot of food and she never had any complaints about the food at all.

My Mom has been a resident of Limestone Manor for almost 2 years. Her room is very spacious. Her window overlooks the backyard and gazebo. The food is very good and the portions are generous. The facility is one story and very manageable for those with mobility issues, directionally challenged, or overwhelmed by crowds. The staff is very caring and know each resident and their family members. The staff works hard to help each resident feel special. They have been very creative in keeping the residents active and engaged during this COVID-19. They are doing Bingo with residents in their doorways, hitting/passing a ball down the hall with pool noodles from their doorways, having family, friends. students write notes of encouragement, having a drive by parade for Mother's day, animal farm visits, etc. I have been very pleased with the care Mom has received.

The facility is small (24 living spaces), which is great for my mom. The food is good, and the staff members are respectful and considerate for the most part. With any multiple employee organization there will be some that a more dedicated that others. But through out my 7 years experience with the facility I have only encountered one that was below standards and the administrator at that time relieved her of her duties. The facility is a safe place, which alleviates a lot of worry on the family.

I visited this facility

We toured this facility while searching for a good place to care for my elderly uncle. A friend of his was already there as a resident and thought it would make him more comfortable to be with someone he was familiar with. Upon arriving, this facility struck me as being very clean and sanitary. The staff was friendly and competent and the residents seemed to like the staff as well. I noted that while there wasn't a great long list of entertainment for residents, there's enough to do to keep them occupied and comfortable. The rooms for the residents are average size and seemingly kept clean. Meals looked home cooked and it was nice to residents gathering at the tables for their meal with help from staff and other residents. The facility setting overall was very calming and relaxed. While we didn't put my uncle here because of the distance from us and other family members, I think it would be wonderful place for someone to be at. With the thoughts of the staff, cleanliness, and overall environment of the facility, I would recommend this place to others seeking assisted living for their loved one.
