Assisted Living Reviews for The Sheridan at Tyler Creek

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

I have an uncle in The Sheridan, but I also toured the place for Mom. I thought the tour was thorough, and they were wonderful in as far as care and concern for mom. It was expensive, but they have respite care, and you can stay for a minimum of a week to ten days. There were some minor issues with my uncle, but these were resolved.

Beautiful new facility. Staff is friendly and caring. Does not accept Medicaid; self-pay only. The only complaint I've heard after the first 2 weeks is that occasionally the dining room staff 'forgets' something (dessert, coffee), but Dad isn't the kind of guy who'll just flag someone down and let them know he's waiting for something. For someone with memory issues, he's extremely unforgiving of lapses in others.

Provider Response

I visited this facility

The Sheridan at Tyler Creek had more of a nursing home setting, which is what I want to get away from. When I visited, they told me they didn’t have an on-site psychiatrist, which I think memory care facilities should have. It wasn’t until after I visited that they told me that they were working with one. I wasn’t really impressed at all. It had more of a hospital feeling rather than a homey setting. The people seemed like they were friendly with the staff and knew of them, so they seemed to get along well.

The Sheridan at Tyler Creek was a brand new facility. It was in good shape. I thought it was more hospital like than more cozy. The rooms and the dining area were very nice and modern.

The Sheridan at Tyler Creek is very good. My mom is at the memory care. It's a brand new facility, so it's very nice, and the food is very good. The staff is very nice, courteous, and professional. The value is very good, and the location is very convenient. Overall it's a good experience.

The Sheridan was the one mom chose, and she chose it because it’s brand new; nobody has lived there before. She is not going to be an outsider coming in as a new person. The service is the same everywhere as far as I could tell. There wasn’t anything in particular that stood out because of the new facility we couldn’t go anywhere to get anyone else’s opinion. It’s gorgeous but not open yet. She chose a 1-bedroom, and because it’s brand new it’s carpeted, and it has a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator. There’s a cook top and a microwave, and it looks like an apartment. Some of the others that we toured didn’t really look so much like an apartment. Susan was great; she was very patient in showing my mom all the things that were available to her. We toured 10 apartments to see the view. She was just really patient. The chef wasn’t there, so we couldn’t taste the food.
