My mother-in-law was a resident of the memory care area-Inspirations. The staff was very helpful and kind. My mother in-law received excellent care all the way through end of life. We are most appreciative.

I'm pleased with everything at Dogwood Forest. The staff, the accommodation, the food, the services, they're all good. It is a dog-friendly facility, which is very nice. The rooms are just beautiful and they look like a brand new apartment with a little balcony/patio thing. They have good appliances and good space. They're all good, nothing bad. It looks like they also have a nice schedule of activities as far as I know, and they're also good.

This facility is very nice, but it's located on the main road"”which is very busy, and can be rather noisy next to the four-lane highway. Dogwood Forest looks like a brick two story house, and is made to look like a home environment inside, with fireplaces and other nice touches. The look and feel is not at all institutionalized, and the whole place is very well maintained. There is a friendly receptionist who greets visitors at once. It is small, with about 36 regular assisted living rooms and about a dozen memory care units. Inside the assisted living portion, there are several different sitting areas equipped with recliners. The dining tables feature family style eating"”offering residents several choices daily. Offsite activities are offered"”including fishing trips, movies, and shopping. The memory care is in a secured unit. Residents there have no meal choices, but do have snacks and offer good hydration throughout the day. The set-up here is open"”with a main big area, where residents do activities during the day. The activities offered are a drawback; there's a bit of music therapy, but nothing too creative; it's an area that could be improved. The staff is very friendly and very well trained. The nurse is smart and on her game, with a good knowledge of every resident's condition. The staff is very hands on, not condescending. I never saw a resident there who was not happy "” although the staff is rather cliquish with one another. The cost is based on needs and varies accordingly.

Dad chose Holbrook himself. And the only main reason was because it had a full kitchen and a washer and dryer unit in the apartment. That was the determining factor. Tiffany, I think was the director. She was wonderful and very informative. They gave us a tour and they were very patient with all our questions. It's very clean and well-organized. The rooms were small, but nice. They do give free Continental breakfast that's not included in their monthly fee. The lunch in my opinion leaves a lot to be desired. It is like a little bistro. It's just soup and sandwiches or salads. There's not a lot of variety, and there are only two meals included in the amenities as opposed to three meals like other facilities, which I was impressed with. It seems like their lunch menu should be a little bit more variety. They have different games. The bus takes them to different places like Goodwill store. They have a nice workout room, a happy hour where they can all gather and get to know each other, and special events like at Christmas time. They have indoor pool as well. It is a very nice and clean facility. They're very accommodating. It's everything they promised and it seemed to be top notched.

I heard The Hollbrook from a friend. What l like about the facility is that it's an active community. It wasn’t people just sitting in wheelchairs. They have a very nice party room and a piano bar. It's just a superb facility. They have a café – it's just like a fine hotel. They have courtyard with a fountain. They have different kinds of rooms. They have a one bedroom and they also have a full kitchenette although they are very small, but they also have a full kitchen, a separate bedroom, and a balcony. They have a washer and dryer in the room. The staff were excellent.

This facility offers independent living for seniors. Floor plans start at 500 square feet at a cost of $2,260 monthly and go up to 1,071 square feet for $3,200. All units come with full kitchens, walk-in closets, and the option of installing a washer and dryer. There is an indoor heated pool, and plenty of activities and amenities. For example, there are workshops on computers, a game room, a beauty shop, a garden club, cocktail lounge, a bistro where food can be made to order, and many day trips arranged. The residents are also offered the option of doing programs with local elementary schools, such reading and singing. In fact, the administration makes an effort to be very community-oriented. This bent and the many activities help residents mentally, physically, and spiritually. Most say they have a full and well balanced activities and social lives. There is also a common dining room with a standard menu; service is restaurant-style. The care is very good; there are pullcords in the main rooms and bathrooms for emergencies. But the staff allows residents as much flexibility as possible; some are even allowed to have cars. One drawback: It's located on the main road, which can be a bit busy and noisy.
