My mother-in-law needed 24 care at Primrose Assited Living when she had advanced Alzheimer's disease. One of the things I first noticed about Primrose is that it didn't have that dreaded "nursing home" smell when we visited. The facilituy was very clean, orderly, and home-like. Staff were relaxed, helpful, cheery, and very professional and kind to residents, even my mother in law, who could be agitated and a little aggressive at times. Staff worked closely with her physician to adjust her medicines on a weekly or monthly basis in order to make her more comfortable, less fearful, and less agitated. She improved after some medication adjustments, and never had that "snowed- falling asleep in my chair" look. She was awake and engaged in various daily activities, such as exercise, miniture golf, cooking, art, music, etc. The grounds were pleasant with colorful and healthy plants, flowers, trees, and grass, and residents could stroll the outside safely. Primrose employed plenty of staff to meet the needs of the residents, which was evident by their quick response to resident needs, cheerful and unhurried disposition when interacting with residents, and a community feel of staff where everyone helped out. I was impressed that all staff helped with activities, which were planned and organized by the Recreation Therapist. In this way, the atmosphere was cheery and felt fun. We ate a few meals with my mother in law at Primrose. There was a private dining room available for us to eat together privately. The food was delicious and homemade by an excellent full time chef. Some staff brought in their dogs during the work day, and this really made the facility seem even more cheerful, warm, and home-like. The dogs were friendly, calm, clean, and very soothing to have around. When it came time for my mother-in-law to need hospice care, Primrose worked closely with a community hospice to make her as comfortable as possible during her decline. We were impressed by how caring, responsive, and knowledgable the hospice staff were. My mother-in-law had a peaceful dying experience with loving family and staff around her. I would highly recommend Primose, especially for Alzheimer care.
