Memory Care Reviews for Aravilla Assisted Living & Memory Care

I visited this facility

It was for higher needs. There weren't a whole lot of people there that were able to interact independently. The food was good, they had several dining rooms, and it was a nice eating experience. They had music for people who like that, and they had live music come in. They have all kinds of activities, but my father didn't take part. The rooms had private bathrooms, and some of them had little porches. It was safe, clean, and pretty well tended to. However, it had a difficult system for getting into the rooms, and for memory challenged people, it's kind of difficult. He wasn't very well attended there because he didn't need a whole lot of assistance. They didn't make sure that he changed his clothes when he should have.

I visited this facility

It is a brand new facility, and it is privately owned. It is the nicest facility that we have been to. The people are wonderful to work with, and it has indoor and outdoor space. It is just a very high quality place. It is absolutely secure and safe. The cooking facility is just amazing; they have a chef that is working there. According to my mother, the food is amazing.
