Hagen: "My Mom has been here for 5 months now and has adjusted very well. There are always activities to do if she wants to and meals are optional so she just goes down to the restaurant when she is hungry. The bus driver Steve has gone out of his way many times to help with her groceries. Everyone is treated like family. Overall we are happy with her apartment and the facility. "

Cheri: "We visited Woodland Village. The rooms were clean, open, and very nice. The lady who took us around was very informative, showed us everything, and gave us a lot of information.

Caretel Inns of Brighton

$$$$
9 reviews
Louise Zrull: "From HIPAA violations to nursing negligence and incompetence, this is not a place you or your loved one want to be a resident at. Nursing administration rude and unprofessional, unwilling to listen to concerns but rather interrupting to make excuses and cover-up incompetent care. Would not recommend this care facility at all."

Greg: "My mom is in Blossom Hill and it is a great place with great staff. It's actually an independent house, so each person has a separate bedroom unit, and there's a major commons area. The bedrooms are very decent-sized. The place was remodeled to accommodate wheelchairs so there are no tight corners to get hung up on. It's a very decent place. The food is great, all homemade and fresh. It has a beautiful outdoor area with a wooded view out the back. It's a really nice place an... (read more)

Belle: "I chose The Willows because of the care and the location. It's in Howell, which is where my family is. It looks like the perfect place for Mom. The nurses and the staff are available at all times. They come to the room to get her to do activities. Everything's great. They have a dining room, but they can also bring the meals to her room if she wants them to."

Tina: "Vista Springs – Howell was really nice, and the staff was nice. It was open, bright, and didn't have a smell. It felt like you were more in a really nice apartment complex than a nursing facility. There was a book club, crafting classes, game day, and movie nights. They had a lot of stuff to do and nice variety too."
