Assisted Living Reviews for McDowell Place of Danville

McDowell Place has been an answer to our prayers. I have a family member who has lived there for 5 years and she loves it! The staff is outstanding and take care of all your needs. They provide excellent care and make sure to meet all of my mother's needs . They always go above and beyond. The food is wonderful and the cooks take time to make delicious meals. We had looked at other local facilities and nothing compared to the services and loving care like McDowell Place provides. I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about assisted living for a family member.

I visited this facility

McDowell was nice, and it’s a large place. The rooms were nice with a pretty good size room and an accessible bathroom. They gave an activity calendar, and I think they had lots of activities. I have known of other people that have been there.

McDowell is a very nice facility with a personal care unit. It has two floors with an elevator, so you don’t have to climb stairs. They have a lovely dining room, social area and really nice handicapped bathrooms. The meal was wonderful and outstanding, and the tables were covered in table cloths. Unfortunately, they don’t accept Medicaid. They have double rooms so you don’t have a roommate. They also have two units for independent living, where you can have one- or two-bedroom unit.

I wanted to give an updated review of McDowell Place of Danville. My mother has lived at MP for the past year. Moving her back to Kentucky for health reasons was very traumatic for the entire family. The staff at MP has been extremely helpful in making Mom at ease, listening to her, making her feel as though she is an important person to the staff, and also in helping our family adjust. Mom is quite capable of taking care of her apartment, her needs, etc. but it has proven essential that Mom be at MP where there is someone there for her in the middle of the night if needed. We are extremely pleased with the staff, the quality of care, the preservation of dignity that is given to the residents. We have had several meals with Mom and also been to visit as her meals were being served. For the most part, the meals have been fantastic. At the moment, the dining room is under renovation and meals are provided in another area or in their apartments. Our family is very thankful to have McDowell Place. Someone previously made a comment on the pricing of MP, but we did research and found that the prices coincide with the national rate for Assisted Living facilities.

My mother has lived quite happily here for about 8 years. She has her own furniture in her small apartment with kitchenette. She does not require assist with personal care but appreciates that there is always someone close if she needs help. The monthly cost includes linens, light housekeeping, transportation to medical or beauty appointments or shopping, membership in the wellness center next door including pool exercise classes, menu choices at all meals in beautiful dining room, good nutrition without tempation to skip meals to save money, plus a wide variety of optional activities: Sunday school, Friday afternoon happy hour, bridge groups, bingo, weekly trips for lunch at local restaurants, inhouse beautician, wii bowlin. There are other activities but this covers ones my mother uses. Small pets are allowed. The staff are wonderful!. They check in each evening with offer of a snack. They will bring a meal to her apartment if she does not feel well enough to go to the dining room.

I spoke with many residents who seemed content with the staff and generally pretty happy. I was personally surprised with the diversity and amount of activities the residents could chose to participate in, and there were also several stations set up for impromptu communal activities like board games or cards. Also, the facilities seemed clean and well managed. Additionally, although I did not try the food, I was invited to stay for dinner several times by friendly staff members. Though I was generally very pleased with the condition of the place, I do have to note that it did seem a little small for the amount of residents. Each room did however have its own bathroom, I am not sure if this is common in similar facilities. Finally, I imagine that this place is on the higher end of the price range, which might be a deterrent for some potential residents.

I visited this facility

The staff seemed friendly but, a few of the patients had some complaints about workers attitudes. It was a fairly clean facility but it had a smell that was not unpleasant but could have been better. The residents seemed well taken care of. They had minor complaints about things but nothing major. Everyone seemed to be doing well. Everyone had access to a nurse when they needed assistance with something. Every room I visited had a television and a phone which the residents seemed to enjoy. Some of them complained about the food but I guess it is along the same lines as hospital food which isn't terrible but also not great. Overall it seemed like a fairly nice place and the residents seemed pretty content.

I visited this facility

I visited and toured this facility when one of my close friends from church began assisted living here. This is facility is relatively new and is in pristine condition, the landscaping surrounding the building is also very scenic. I met and spoke to a number of the personnel at McDowell place and they all seemed happy to be there and were very polite. The dining area is spacious with plenty of seating, and it is easily accessed as you walk down the main corridor from the entrance. Most of the flooring was carpet, so the chance of slipping and falling is reduced and I thought that was a good idea. The rooms themselves are very home like and charming, they do not resemble hospital rooms and I think that this is a good thing. Each room has its own bathroom and a small kitchenette area (that we of course filled with pictures of her friends and family). Down the hall from my friends room was the casual living room area, which included a number of soft recliners, lamp lighting, and a television. All in all, I was very impressed with the facilities at McDowell Place and would recommend to those in Danville searching for an assisted living care facility.
