I visited this facility

We visited Tanbark Health Care Center when we looked for a place for my mother-in-law. She would have a bedroom, small living room, microwave and sink. It was very nice but they did not have a secured dementia unit.

We just moved our grandmother into Tanbark on the corner of Tates Creek and Man O War in Lexington, Kentucky. She has advancing Alzheimer's but is still able to somewhat care for herself. Everyone has been very nice and the facilities are beautiful. This is a great option for our family because as she advances in her illness we can move her to a higher level of care within the same facility.

Tanbark really was a great place for my late great grandmother to stay. All of the staff was very helpful in attaining the information that my parents and myself were looking for. Also with my grandmother being an employee there for 40 years was another great selling point for us so we knew that she would get the care that she needed. All of the tenants there were very happy also, all their needs were met and it really seemed that they enjoyed being around all of the staff. I highly recommend Tanbark Healthcare to anyone searching for a topnotch facility for anyone in their family. All reviews on the internet came back positive and I have never once heard a complaint from them, especially during the time my great grandmother stayed there.
