My moms transition has been very smooth. A very home like atmosphere. I can’t say enough about the staff. They are absolutely amazing and helpful. They assisted you in all matters even in the mist of this covid pandemic. Food has been really tasty my mom has said.

The tour at Residences at Deer Creek was very good. The community is very nice, clean, and seemed to be well run. It was quiet when we were there, and the employees and residents we interacted with seemed friendly. The staff member who showed us around was knowledgeable and friendly. We had a calendar of activities, we looked at the activity rooms, and the dining room we saw was open, clean, and felt comfortable.

Food and service are very good and 99% of staff is kind, patient and caring. The studio is nice size with kitchen sink, cabinets, fridge and microwave. Nice bathroom with walk in shower. They have a nice variety of outings as well as activities but is is difficult to fight stereotypical bingo, etc. The grounds are nicely kept. This is far better than the facility my parents had been living in. Moving was hard but well worth it.

Communication is sometimes lacking and cleanliness is questionable at times. Staff is super and caring.

My mother is now a resident at Residences at Deer Creek and the people there are very good. They're more than attentive and they're doing what they said they were going to do. My mother thinks they don't have enough staff members, but I think that comes with the territory in terms of assisted living places. She's in the independent living there but she's also getting extra assistance. Her room is wonderful, and the staff members are very nice even though they put up with a lot. The food is wonderful, the dining area is welcoming, and the dining staff is very attentive. The quality of the food and what they provide for the residents is absolutely wonderful. It's the first time my mother has gone anywhere that she didn't complain about the food. She goes to play bingo and watch movies, and she likes participating when they do balloon volleyball and things like that. She's doing physical therapy and they're working with her, so that's perfect. They have a lot of activities. My mother can't deal with them right now due to her condition, but she's looking forward to it.

Both of my parents lived here. I was very pleased with everything. Mom and Dad were well looked after and I always got a call if anything was going on. Their apartment was comfortable and the bathroom quite large. I had lunch or dinner with them often and found the food and service as good as any restaurant. The staff was very responsive and helpful. Any time I had a problem, it was solved very quickly. There were lots of activities and entertainment brought in regularly. The hair salon was awesome and mom was always pleased. I always felt like family there and made many friends with staff and residents alike.

Outstanding facility. From the initial presentation to the actual care, everything is handled compassionately, professional, on time and accurate. Rooms are clean with appropriate space. Activities are plentiful. Nursing staff is on top of any medical issue. The housing and maintenance are very responsive.

Since the first day that our mom moved into Residences at Deer Creek we knew that she was safe and in the company of a very knowledgeable, caring staff. Everyone from the front office, nurses, maintenance, aides, dining room and cleaning staffs have been very kind and considerate. Not only to the residents, but also to the visitors. We researched and visited numerous, similar facilities around the region and none compared with Deer Creek. There are many activities, entertainment and just friendly conversation to brighten her day. She loves the food that is served in the award winning dining room and the fact that the doctor and podiatrist visit her right in her apartment. Her other favorite feature is having a beauty salon in the facility. Thank you for everything you do. You are the best.

The Residences was my favorite, and I would put my mom there. It had a lot of nice activities, the staff was super friendly, and it had a very nice setting. I liked how they combined the independent living with the assisted living. As you have more needs, you can stay in the same room, and you can get more care.

My dad as lived in assisted living at Deer Creek for 6 months. He is VERY happy here. And we, his children, are are also quite pleased with everyone and everything that DC represents. Having been through the nursing home experience with my mother, I was a bit skeptical of any facility. Well, Deer Creek quickly changed my mind. I can't say enough good things about them and that's the honest truth. When people ask my father what he thinks about living here, the first thing he says is how wonderful the staff is and provides examples, and I can attest to this. I visit for a couple of hours at a time 3-4 times per week. The ENTIRE staff is RESPECTFUL, friendly, kind, caring and professional. AND helpful; I haven't observed staff or visitors running the other direction when a resident is in need of some help. The nurses and CNAs are the very best. They provide me with peace of mind knowing my dad is under their care. Staff is consistently pleasant and upbeat! So far, I haven't detected when staff is having a bad day--really. The maintenance staff are awesome, too! They have made some modifications to my father's apartment to better meet his needs, for example, added an extra grab bar in the bathroom as well as removed the lamp shades in his bathroom so the light would be brighter. I've eaten many meals at DC; the food is exceptional and my father thinks so as well. One of the meals he looks forward to is having a bowl of their homemade soup everyday. The desserts are out of this world. My father's apartment is clean, the garbage cans are emptied twice a day, bed linens and clothing are washed per his schedule. He is bathed twice a week as well. He gets his hair and fingernails cut at the DC salon, which is a huge help to me. As my father tells everyone who asks, "There is always something to do, if you want to do it". There are activities planned throughout the day, 7 days per week (the activity schedule is actually followed). He's into music and has praised the musical performances of those who have entertained them to date. The family nights are fun and something our family enjoys participating in. My father and I have developed a fond affection for the staff and residents at Deer Creek. I hope you come for a visit and experience the same things.

My dad has been at Deer Creek for three months in the memory support wing. It is the best thing we have done for him. The staff have been so welcoming and supportive. It was difficult to kale this decision but they were so helpful and compassionate, and continue to be so. The activities are wonderful and led by great people. Dad has rallied at Deer Creek due to the excellent care, great food, and all the activities and interaction with other people. We are so very pleased. It is a blessing.

My Aunt and Uncle had looked at all Assisted Living Residences in Northwest Indiana and Chose Deer Creek. They even waited until the right apartment became available. They love it, they love the food, they love the people and I love the care they receive and the piece of mind. The staff is outstanding and I cant say enough good things about Residences at Deer Creek

Residences at Deer Creek is one of the best facilities in the area. Karen and every one of their employees are caring and compassionate and put their residents needs first. I would highly recommend it.

My father has lived at Residences of Deer Creek for 2 years and just recently another family member has also moved in. The care and consideration provided by staff to those living in Deer Creek is beyond anything I have ever experienced.

We moved our mom into Deer Creek. The experience has been good. One of the reason I picked them is because they are very close to our house, so it is easy for me to go visit my mom whenever I want. It is a happy atmosphere. It is open, and visitors can come and go. They keep track of the people that stay there. They have lots of social programs. The food is good. It is nice. The have bingo and exercise multiple times during the day. They have dances and people that come over and sing for them. They have entertainments. They have gardens and outside field trips. Every Thursday, they have a bus that takes everyone to the store. I ate there couple of times, and the food is very good. They have a special for the day that changes every day. They also have a menu where they have about 6 to 8 dishes that are the same for the whole month, and those are the entrees. They have another page of sandwiches you can pick from and another page of different salads. They can eat anything that they want, as much as they want, between 7 in the morning until 7 at night.

It may look nice but the memory care unit staff is lacking in communication skills and common sense. For the amount of money paid monthly, you shouldn't have to constantly follow up to make sure the staff does what they should. Unimpressed with the management and their ability to address the family's concerns.

Provider Response

We are saddened you feel that we have fallen short of your expectations. We have a very successful open door policy to address such concerns and meet with our families regularly. Our goal is to provide the best quality of care for our residents. We are very proud of the hardworking, dedicated staff who are with our residents every step of their memory impairment journey.

Residences at Deer Creek is a new facility. The rooms are nice and clean. The light is good. However, they do not furnish their apartments, and you have to bring your own furniture. Also, they don't have a kitchen. They have a dining area, where they have a wait staff that will bring your meals to you. You have a menu for the meal, and you choose an entrée, a side, and a dessert. All of that is included in the cost.

Memory Care Reviews for Residences at Deer Creek

September 05, 2019

By daughter_of_Mom_Living_in_Memory_Care

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

A very nice facility with many wonderful RN's and Aides. Since Mom has dementia, the Memory facility gives us peace of mind that she is in a safe environment and is taken care of 24/7. Her room is very spacious and the private attached bathroom gives her the privacy of her own area in which to get a shower. Staff know her by name and are always talking to her. Mom loves when Music is brought in (Either piano or guitar). Sometimes they even bring in a dog that she get to pet. Another advantage is that her room has its' own temperature setting, cuz Mom is Always Cold.

Staff is caring and have good intentions. I think nurses and aids are overwhelmed with the current population of residents. Communication among the staff and staff communicating with family leaves something to be desired. Not good follow thru with hearing aids and their care. Rooms are adequate but not always cleaned as promised. Lots of activities provided by staff and other community volunteers.

Provider Response

Kathy thank you for your feedback, your loved one is very important to us and we appreciate the opportunity to address these concerns. Please be assured we have an open door policy when it comes to any feedback you or your family may have and have looked into your concern.

I lived 400 miles from the facility but my brother and sister live local and had full responsibility for the care of our Dad. This was the 3rd place our Dad was at and, after several years, it proved to be the best hands down! The only hard part for me was trying to get through to my Dad on the phone. In the end when he could no longer hold the phone, and I did get through, a care giver was kind enough to hold it to his ear while we talked. The staff were constantly busy keeping to the schedule and I never saw a frown on any face.

My father was a memory care resident at RODC for 3.5 years until he recently passed away late summer 2018. This was the 3rd facility he was in during the last 8 years, & by far the best. The care & concern of the director Karen, & all of the nursing, aide, & dietary staff members was nothing short of exceptional from day one. They showed him lots of personal attention & love. Plenty of activities, incl. church services were available. Any concerns during his stay, incl. dietary were always addressed promptly & professionally. RODC is also competitively priced. I highly recommend RODC for memory care. I also had opportunity during his stay to observe the assisted living & would recommend it as well.
