Assisted Living Reviews for Blue Skies Ranch

The perfect choice especially during COVID! Blue Skies Ranch keeps your family member safe without isolating them. This home's layout allows visitors to maintain social distancing with different indoor and outdoor seating areas. Spending time with my Mom was so important to me and having to see her through a window wasn't good enough. Visiting Blue Skies Ranch using protective measures allows for personal contact. It's the perfect choice!!

The rooms at Blue Skies Ranch are far nicer and cleaner than any I saw at the bigger assisted living facilities. Each resident here had their own private room and daily care. When looking at places for my grandma, I was never excited about sending her to a big facility. It seemed like it would be difficult to spend time with her there, and she wasn't too excited about the thought herself either. At Blue Skies Ranch, I feel like I'm inside of a real home. The staff is extremely loving! Eilene is one of the sweetest nurses I've met and so are Eva and Gladis There is a pool, a couple of little doggies running around, and a neighborhood horse in the backyard. The residents all have a nice home cooked meal together almost every night. I would certainly recommend Blue Skies Ranch to anyone looking to put their loved one in a facility that provides around the clock care, but also allows very convenient visitation. My favorite part about Blue Skies Ranch is that I am able to come see my loved one often, but also don't have to worry when I'm not there! I can trust that she's getting good care, and is far more comfortable in this home-environment than she ever has been in the past with a larger facility! :)

My mom was in assisted living before she was hospitalized with an infection. She then went to a skilled nursing facility before we had to decide whether to send her back to assisted living or to a board and care home. We eventually decided a board and care would be more suited to her needs and we were referred to Blue Skies Ranch by an agency. From the moment I called Eilene(the owner), I knew this was the right decision. Eilene is a lovely caring person and took excellent care of my mother in her last months. Eilene previously had taken care of her elderly mother and knew what families needed wasn't always available. She started the Blue Skies Ranch and redid the home. It is beautifully decorated and always smelled nice. It is also on a quiet street in a nice area. Eilene is also an RN and was not only compassionate, she loved spending time with my mother. She also lives in the home with the residents. My mom loved her and loved the ranch and Eilene's daughter Shannon. The caretakers played games with the tenants in the living room and let residents help pick their meals. All of the meals were served with such beautiful dishes and always looked wonderful. Eilene would spend hours watching tv with my mom and chatting with her. It is a smaller board and care with only 3-4 residents at a time. I would highly recommend it for anyone that needs more care than they can get at home. I also felt much safer having her there than in a larger facility due to the pandemic. My mom was able to visit with the other residents and play games and watch tv since there were only 3 of them. They also have a nice area set up outside for visiting. I highly recommend Blue Skies Ranch!

Blue Skies Ranch was a fantastic place for my mother. The living conditions are exemplary, and the staff truly caters to each clients needs. Not only could I visit my mother with ease, but I could also be sure that she was receiving the best care even when I wasn’t around. I was delighted to have a place where my mother could feel like a normal person, living in a normal house, surrounded by people and activity. The final stage of life is not an easy journey for anyone, not for my mother, not for me or my family, but finding a good assisted living provider certainly helps to ease the stress. I would certainly recommend Blue Skies Ranch to anyone looking for quality assisted living.

After Eilene cared for her own mother during her mother's last few years of life, Eilene decided to open her own Board and Care. With her passion of nursing, hospice, and overall caring for people, she communicates with residents' families on a daily basis to alert of any changed behavior, new concerns, or to simply say their loved one had a wonderful day.
