I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother-in-law moved into Saratoga Grove Retirement and Assisted Living one week ago. The Saratoga Grove is a very clean, very nicely set up, smaller community. They only have 66 total residents. It's set up for independent living on the lower level, assisted living on the main floor, and memory care on the second floor. The reason we chose Saratoga Grove besides the very nice people and very nice residents is because my mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She will be able to stay in that community as she progresses or as the disease progresses. She could be moved up into memory care. The best part about it is that they are connected to a Medicaid facility. So, if it gets to the point where she can no longer afford on her own to pay for the care at Saratoga Grove, she will not be moved down the block across the street. She'll be moved over into a different section of the community, which was very important. We didn't have to pack her up and move her. In other places that we saw, they promise you the best care. They promised this. They promised that. But once your money is gone, well, we're going to have to move her out. She enjoys the meals. She enjoys the people. As we thought, when we first talked about moving her there, she has become more independent than she was when she was living with us. And she seems to be thriving. She's up early because she has other women she has to compete with now. The room that she's in is a single room and it's fairly large size. She has a bed, a dresser, a TV, a recliner, and another chair. So there's plenty of space in the room, and yet at the same time, it's not too large for her. She walks around or moves around on her rollator, and it's a very good size for as is the community itself. The community is not oversized. It's a smaller community where it's set up in a circle so she can walk around, but she's not too tired and it's not too far to go anywhere she does go. They have a beautiful courtyard. What we love best is the way that it's set up. There's an atrium in the center of all three floors, for example, if they have a magician come in and perform for them, you can see him even from memory care by going to the atrium in the center and just looking down at the performances. They do have an outdoor courtyard that my mother-in-law says is very nice. She has not gone out there because it's been in the 90s. It's too warm for her to go outside. But yes, they do things. They had a care dog come in last week. They have bingo three times a week. My mother-in-law is excited because they have a bus trip to the casino coming up next week. There's just a lot of things where they bring the people in. They have an activity center. They have a health club with some workout equipment. A wonderful young lady, probably in her 70s leads the group. She focuses on balance more than anything else. As you get older, as you may or may not know, balance is very important.

My sister will move into Saratoga Grove Retirement and Assisted. I think the price is right. The place is very nice and clean and everybody's very friendly. Bernard, who gave us the tour, was wonderful. He was great. He answered all my questions to make me understand what was going on and he calmed all my fears, so it was great. I liked the rooms mainly because there wasn't a stove or anything like that. They were just the right size, and that's all my sister needed. It has a bed and a TV. I know that she's going to be going out of the room for events that were happening there or to go out, and not be in the room all the time. They reassured me that was all going to happen, that she would be going to activities and things, so that was good. When I was there, they were painting on canvas, and I thought that was neat. They go for bus rides to the shopping centers, too. They have a planned big day out. They're not going to keep my sister sedated and not doing anything. It looked like a good fit for us. The price is right, which is my major thing because my sister is young, she's only 65, and she could be there for 20 years, so we don't want her to run out of money.

top notch staff - above and beyond caring. family-like atmosphere. The small community feel was perfect for my parents, great staff to resident ratio and allowed for more attention to my parents. They didn't get forgotten or overwhelmed. Awesome weekly entertainment and daily activities. They would always encouraged my parents to not stay in their room and remain active and social. I am very please with how my parents lived the rest of their lives at Saratoga Grove, I am coming to the age where I will need to find other living options and this is where I will plan to retire.

My dad ended up going to Saratoga Grove Retirement & Assisted Living. He's very happy with the size, appearance, and staffing. We looked at a few places and that's the one he wanted to go to. He liked the way it looked, the people or staffing that he had met before moving in, and the size of his room, he was very happy with all of it. So far, he likes the food, and the dining area is nice and well-lit. He plays cards and does a lot of chatting with some of the other residents. They have a library and a nice outside area. The place is very nicely done.

Saratoga Grove was more of a simpler way of living. The room that we saw was a one-bedroom with a little living room. There's no kitchen, but it had a microwave. The residents eat their meals in the dining room. The rooms were smaller. If you wanted a two-bedroom unit, they would have to cut a hole between two one-bedroom units and make a doorway. Most of the units were one-bedroom and just a few were two-bedroom, but they will accommodate you if that's what you want. They had activities on a smaller scale. Their big plus was they will help people get on Medicaid. They had an excellent physical therapy unit there that's pretty well known in the area for being top notch.

To me, Saratoga Grove was the most peaceful place. It was very secluded, and it had a beautiful surrounding. It probably would have been my second choice, although it was not convenient as far as location. The staff was very knowledgeable. The lady that we spoke with sent me information regarding choosing assisted living location even though it was over and above what she had to do or needed to do, so that was nice and very helpful. The surroundings were beautiful. They were like in the middle of a forest. It was just really pretty. I thought it was really nice, but the location was not convenient for us.

The one that my wife ended up going to is Saratoga Grove. I like it; it is a religious-oriented place, and it wasn’t too big. The staff members seem to be competent and friendly, and they spend plenty of time with the residents. The room is a nice size, it is a one-bedroom, and there is a full bath. It seems to be kept clean. She must like the food because she eats all of it. It is convenient and is only about 3 blocks from a good- sized hospital. They can always improve on care, but from what I’ve seen, it is more than just adequate.

Saratoga Grove is nice, open, and an airy place. They have a smaller area for the assisted living. The way they had it is that the floor is in an X, so no one was that far away from the center, if they are in a wheelchair, and I like that. People were very nice, and they followed up on me after the visit. It just seemed a nice place. I also like the physical therapy area of it.

Saratoga is an assisted living, but mom has hospice care. It is very nice, and they treat my mom very well. I don’t have any complaints. The staff is generally very good. When you say something to management, they take note. She has symptoms of cardiac problems, and she signed papers that she will be in hospice.
