Assisted Living Reviews for Samuel F. Vilas Home

February 12, 2015

By Caring106055550

I visited this facility

The staff at Samuel F. Vilas was excellent. They were mainly young adults probably in their early twenties, and there were some older women that were downstairs in the nursing station. Those young people are very energetic and nice. From what my mother-in-law is saying, the food is very good, and there is plenty of it too. I wasn't there that long, but from what I understand, they had reading rooms and had some game rooms. I guess there are a couple of church services that are there on the weekend. We were up there in the winter, and it seemed to be very well kept and well maintained. It was nice and very clean. We actually looked in some of the restrooms, and they were spotless. It’s comfortable there. They have couches, lounges, recliners, and a couple of TV rooms. It’s very house oriented; it’s not like an institution. It’s got paintings and furnishings, and the bedrooms are nice. It looks like an old colonial house with one small parking lot on one side. It’s actually got a wraparound porch, so when the weather gets nice they can sit outside.

About Samuel F. Vilas Home

We provide a warm, safe, and comfortable environment to our residents so they can maximize their level of physical, spiritual, and emotional independence.

For over 130 years, the Vilas Home has honored one purpose: to provide a beautiful home and premier care to residents of the North Country. Our 42-bed adult home was built in 1888 and today the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places under the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Our three-story building has its original high-ceiling rooms, large windows, recessed porches, and is considered a prime example of Queen Anne Architecture (we’re proud of our history!).
