Country House Residence provides outstanding care for our mother and support for our family. The staff is extremely caring and well trained, and provide a warm and loving environment that is very apparent with the interaction our mom has with them. We are so happy to find a loving home for our mom that specializes in Memory Care and caters to her needs. The staff goes the extra mile to make sure that the residents feel safe and comforted. The facility is clean and beautiful inside and out and provides lots of great space for the residents and families to enjoy, including a lovely patio out back where the residents can enjoy the sunshine. The apartments are clean and well maintained. Country House provides wonderful activities for the residents both onsite and offsite, and outstanding celebrations for the families to enjoy meals with their loved ones. The food is excellent and they make sure that the residents are maintaining a nutritious diet that is customized to their individual needs. I definitely would highly recommend County House Residence to anyone looking for outstanding memory care for their loved one. They are an Excellent Facility and our family is so happy to have found Country House Residence. Sincerely, Patty P. Granite Bay, CA

I spent a whole summer visiting local places to handle the physical and mental needs that my mother had developed. From the very get-go, the lovely young woman who guided us (unannounced and unscheduled - spur of the moment visit) took us on a tour. What impressed me the most was that she talked directly to my mother, making eye contact and reading her concerns. My husband and I were afforded the opportunity to talk to "The Dementia Whisperer" (a consultant affiliated with CountryHouse), which made a huge difference in our understanding of what was happening to Mother. The staff has always been so helpful to us and considerate of all of Mother's various needs. They are open to our contributing Music and Art. They go out of their way to include families and visitors and have graciously handled unfortunate interference by an unpleasant family member. For us, CountryHouse has our confidence and applause for Mother's care on a very individual level. Her personal health has improved because she feels safe. There is consistency, understanding of dementia behavior, and a truly loving staff. We feel so luck to finally have what works for us. What you see really is what you get. Most sincerely, Sarah V. Bent

It has almost been a year since I placed my husband at Country House. The experience has been very emotional because I was the sole caregiver prior to having to place him in a memory care facility. I think that Country House is very unusual in that it is truly a family-oriented facility and the staff tries extremely hard to include their residents' families in so many activities. When I go to visit my spouse, I feel like I am always welcome no matter what time of day, and I feel as if it is my second home. All the caregivers and staff welcome me with hugs and are truly happy to see me as well as some of the other residents. We are all one big family!! If there is one thing that we can work on it's our communication skills. I'm sure this is something that needs to be addressed in most care facilities, and that is making sure all those in charge of care are on the same page in understanding all the variables that need to be addressed in the day-to-day care of each resident. I think it would be helpful if I had a regularly scheduled monthly appointment with a staff member to discuss my husband's care in detail. Another suggestion that came up recently was that it might be really beneficial for the families of Alzheimer's patients to learn more about Hospice and how they can interact and help not just in the last days but as the disease progresses. Hopefully Country House could sponsor a session to learn more about what Hospice can offer to help Alzheimer's patients as well as their families.
