Assisted Living Reviews for Bishop Drumm Retirement Center

August 21, 2012

I visited this facility

My mother-in-law recently visited, and part of that visit was going to see some independent and assisted living homes in our area. On the list was Martina Place Assisted Living in Johnston, IA. One of the first things that you notice, is that the rooms are clustered into what the nurses refer to as "neighborhoods". These clusters, serve as references for directions and for residences to identify more closely with neighbors. Dining rooms and entry ways are focused for each "neighborhood'. The amenities are in line with what you would expect, 24 hour staff, access to scheduled activities, independent living quarters and good recreation areas for TV and cards. Something I noticed, that I liked was that very few people were off by themselves, it was mainly "cliques" of people doing something that shared their interest, a group of guys were watching TV, talking about baseball, some ladies were gossiping and playing cards and another mixed group was putting together a huge puzzle. I liked that you could tell these were activities that these people wanted to do with their friends, not things the staff had set up. It was nice to see that the atmosphere was positive and relaxed.

We tour Martina Place in Johnston Iowa and we actually love the place! My parents are happy since they moved in and I will definitely recommend Martina Place to others. I find Martina Place very nice and accommodating.
