Memory Care Reviews for Magnolia on the Avenue

May 31, 2018

I visited this facility

The staff at Our Home at Ware's Creek was outstanding. She spent a lot of time with us and she was very accommodating. The rooms didn't have private bathrooms. You had a room and a Jack and Jill bathroom in between and then another room. We felt an overabundance of dementia patients and that wasn't the case with my brother-in-law. He's a little more with it. We didn't think it was a good fit, but the staff was outstanding. It was small and clean. It was old mansion that they converted, so the rooms were not big. Everything was small. We didn't think it was a good fit for him. The dining area was small. They don't have a lot of people there. It was just basic. If you're looking for a small facility with excellent care and you're not worried about whether they share a bathroom or a room, it would be excellent.

My father has been living at Our Home at Wares Creek for years. He has always been well cared for and we have always been very happy with the staff and management. My sisters and I have recommended this facility to two of our friends and will do this in the future if the opportunity arises. My father loves the food and the activities, particularly the group walks. My wife and I have enjoyed visiting with my father at his home over the years and have always felt welcome to drop in at any time of the day or night. This is important to both of us because of our schedules. We researched many facilities in the area, Our Home at Wares Creek stood out to my sisters and myself because of the warm, comfortable home feel. This has not changed over the years and my father is very content. My family and I are grateful for the loving people who care for my father at this beautiful home!

I personally don't like Our Home at Ware’s Creek. They have poor food, the rooms are very small and cramped, and they don't take care of the things they're supposed to. If my sister-in-law allows them to launder my brother's clothes, a lot of his clothes disappear. She ends up making food and taking it to him. It's just not a good place. The state had to come in periodically and inspect it. My brother has been attacked twice by other residents there. The only advantage that we have is that they are cheaper than the other places.

I visited this facility

Our Home at Ware's Creek was my second choice if the first facility where my husband stayed did not work out. It was clean and they were very accommodating. When I visited, they were in the process of rehabilitation. Everyone was upstairs and they seemed happy and contented where they were. The rooms were a nice size and you could furnish it yourself. They had rooms with adjoining bathrooms, where the bathroom was for two rooms. They also had rooms for several people. But I wanted my husband to had his own room. The menu looked quite good although I was not able to try the food.
