Assisted Living Reviews for Park Springs - A Life Plan Community

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Cobblestone at Park Springs was a great rehab facility for my sister. It's one of the best. She went there after having a stroke, and she was just doing rehab consistently to recover from the stroke. So basically what she went through was the physical, the speech; the whole therapy is what she spent her time doing at the Cobblestone. There weren't many activities for her other than to get back her functions from the stroke. One of the best things about it was there was just one patient per room, so she had her own private room, and the staff was really good at helping her with everything. I went to Cobblestone because it was highly rated, and they did a very good job with her.

We thought about Park Springs but they did not maintain their properties well. The staff was very nice and pleasant, but I didn’t like the floor plans. The kitchens were too small for me because I like to cook. They need to work on maintenance, but other than that the rest of the facility was lovely.

They accommodated me very well at Park Springs. I like it a lot. It is on 54 acres, and it has all stages of care, from no assistance, to assistance, to skilled nursing, hospice, and a memory center. The apartments were very clean and very spacious. The handicapped access to the bathroom was very nice. They have three dining areas, and they are very nice. Everything was top-notch and of high quality. This is the only one I visited. I didn't need to see any others to know that this would be the right one for my parent.

I highly recommend Cobblestone at Park Springs! After enjoying several years of healthy independence, our mother's spine began to deteriorate. As her care needs progressed from in-home care to assisted living to skilled nursing, Cobblestone provided the care she needed with the highest level of compassion and attentiveness we could have asked for. There is a sense of pride and dedication at Cobblestone that is unlike any care facility we've ever experienced. Mom enjoyed the beautiful amenities and wonderful food. We appreciated how the staff was caring and responsive to her unique needs and quirky personality. They became like family to all of us - especially to mom. Our family is grateful to everyone at Cobblestone for being there for our mom when we couldn't be. That kind of peace of mind is invaluable.

Park Springs was a very lovely place. The community included a huge library, a clubhouse and a pool. They have activities for residents there and during Christmas, they would have a nice program. Apartments varied depending on the price. The huge ones were gorgeous with updated kitchen.

I visited this facility

I was very impressed by the cleanliness and caring of the concern some of the staff had for the residents and also the entertainment available for the staff but I was not to happy when i observed the security officer making a personal phone call. I was actually considering this place but once I saw that I changed my mind.
