Assisted Living Reviews for The Falls at Cordingly Dam

December 20, 2013

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have found a place for my husband. He moved in The Falls at Cordingly Dam two weeks ago. One of the reasons why I chose this for him was because it was close enough for me so that I could visit him everyday. I'm an old lady and so I don't want to drive great distances and this place is exactly 5 miles door to door. The other thing is that it is an assisted living facility but they do have a floor for memory care people. It is a big facility but it only has one floor that has 28 beds for people with memory problems. It is a locked floor and you have to have a key to get there. This facility has a real atmosphere of caring. It looks to me that people there are really and truly caring for these old folks who have lost their memory. The other thing that is very important to me is that, as my husband decline which is very sad, he can stay there to the very end. I don't have to move him again. The staff has also been very concerned about me because I'm very worried and fussy over everything about my husband, but they all constantly would reassure me that he is doing okay even though I think he is very, very limited in what he can do. They did have a lot of excellent programs there but sadly my husband probably will not be able to participate in them. As a whole, I'm satisfied with this place.

I never dreamed I would feel my mother so "held" by all of the staff at The Falls. Every request we make is filled immediately and cheerfully, I have such peace of mind that your staff checks in on my mother during the night, and when something happens, they alert me immediately. I know how much organizations take on the character of their leadership, and I am tremendously appreciative for the high bar you set for standard of care and responsiveness. That my mother adjusted so quickly and is so happy is such a tribute to The Falls Staff.

Care is minimal, amenities lacking, food pretty awful, and it is very expensive! We have to provide our own care givers for our resident family member at great additional expense. The chief problem as I see it is the conflict between the commitment to helping residents and the need to make a profit. I would recommend that anyone seeking this kind of care, i.e. assisted living, seek out a non-profit facility.
