I am/was a resident of this facility

I’ve been in Palmcrest Grand a little over 4 years now. It’s an old building, and it’s big, spacious, and fairly comfortable, but it needs some serious repairs, like plumbing and electrical stuff. I have a room with a bedroom and bathroom, not very big, with closed in closets. It’s OK. The staff is pretty nice. The housekeeper comes by once a day and cleans the room, and it works out pretty well. The food is terrible, and I don’t know if it is due to budget problems or lack of capable people or both. They have a pretty large dining room downstairs that houses 100 people. It’s more utilitarian, with a hard floor and nice fixtures, but it’s OK. They have a pretty good activities director. They play different games on a daily basis, like Bingo and blackjack. We have a tai chi class once or twice a week. They have movies once in a while, maybe a couple of afternoons a week.

I visited this facility

It's really nice at Palm Crest. They give good service. The place is clean and they wash the linens once a week or as needed. The food is all right but it's bland. They have to have it that way because not everybody can have salt. You can also order food that you like. The staff is all right but we had to talk to the manager or the activities director because some patients scream and the like. However, they seemed not to get your message across. I would still recommend this facility though.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

At first I was nervous about going to an assisted living facility because I had the mental image of an "old folks home" from a movie. But I was happily surprised to find out that either a lot has changed or Palmcrest is just an exception to the rule. The facility was clean and well maintained, even though it did remind me of a hotel. All of the lamps and sofas seemed to be bought en masse. George was a widower an lived in a small "studio." It was more or less just a room with an attached bathroom but he had personalized it with his own things, namely a big old record player and stacks of jazz records.He said he would rather live on his own but that every once in awhile he has trouble getting up out of bed so it is nice that he has the staff there to help him when he needs it. I didn't really get a chance to talk with any of the staff but they all seemed friendly and always greeted George by name when they saw him. All and all I think Palmcrest is a nice facility that seems to respect their residences.
