Assisted Living Reviews for Villas of Holly Brook - Effingham

I visited this facility

The Villas of Hollybrook is a brand-new facility that opened this summer. Pretty much all the rooms were filled when it was still under construction. They had different prices depending on the size of the rooms or whether you wanted an extra bedroom instead of just one room. The room we saw had a bed in it and a closet, which couldn't hold half of my wife's clothes. It was a nice facility and well managed. I have some friends in there, but we were just looking ahead of time to see our options. I don't like the fact that it's on concrete slab; that would pretty much eliminate me from living there. I've lived on concrete before when I was a lot younger, and I just don't like it.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have a relative who is in The Villas of Holly Brook. It's very subdued and kept up nicely. They have nice-looking nurses and CNAs. It's quality for the price. The food is not that great, though. They recently changed ownership and changed the way they prepare their food, and it's not nearly as good or appetizing. They're all private rooms. They've got choices of one-, two- or three-bedroom units, and nobody shares a room. It's like an apartment. You pick out the size you want based on the availability and what you need and how much you can spend. They have several activities, i.e., singing group from town comes, bingo, and exercise classes. If they can afford it, that's the best of that type of facility. They also help with medication.

I visited this facility

The staff was less than up to par. The facility its self is beautiful and no doubt a wonderful place to live aside from the staff which I found to be less than friendly as well as not very attentive to the people's needs. I feel they could really do a better job on their interview and hiring process to get more friendly staffing who may be a little more able to care for elderly people. They just seemed very cold. They do have a gorgeous tv room and dining area for the residents. As well as the apartments themselves being beautiful. The staff seems to keep it fairly clean in their apartments. The people living there seemed happy enough and still cared for even with not very friendly people doing so. They do have a nice circular type structure to the building which would be good for the ones who like to wonder around. All-in all it is a beautiful facility just needs better staff.
