My dad is at The Landing of Stow and we are very happy with it. The staff is responsive, and my dad loves the food. He is not happy to be there, but very few people at 92 are. He keeps asking me when he is going to get out of prison. We moved him there shortly before the COVID shutdown, so its been a really unsettling experience. We moved him from another state, and we cannot visit him, but that is not anyone's fault, it's just the virus. So, we are quite happy there and the price is competitive, it is just when I moved him there, I did not think ahead about finding a facility that had Medicaid waiver beds. This one does not offer that. So sometime in the next few months we need to make a move. They take care of his medication, he gets some assistance with showering and toileting from time to time, but most of that he can do himself. He can dress himself, eat on his own, and he uses a walker. He mostly needs help in what they call a transfer, going from the chair to the bed, and that sort of thing. But he is mentally quite sharp. They have maintained good food service, and he comments on it all the time. They have activities, but he is not an activity guy, and is a bit of a loner, so none of that really matters to him. They had a Veterans Day, and my dad is a WW2 veteran, and he would not go; he said he did not need that. He has been that way for thirty years. I like the staff, but some of the management concerns me a little bit. I have not eaten there, but my dad loves the food. I have spoken with the activity director a few times and she is delightful and committed.
