I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
I am very positive about The Amber assisted living. The new management is great - very conscientious about doing a great job and ensuring everything runs well and residents are well cared for. The staff are extraordinary - very caring and friendly towards the residents there. It's not just for show, either - I've walked through the facility on off-hours to visit relatives and have seen caregivers sitting and speaking with residents, holding their hands and bringing them comfort. This to me is what assisted living is truly about and I am so thankful that The Amber is where some of our family has decided to live now that they need extra help. There is always something going on there like bingo or pedicures or folks gather in the group area to talk or play piano or just sit and relax. If you're looking for a safe place for family members who need extra care, where the staff are attentive and kind and the food is pretty darn good - then check out The Amber.

It's a warm friendly facility, Many changed have been made but they are moving things in a positive direction. They lost some staff but hired some sweet people to care for the residents. The new director is very eager to assure people are well cared for and wont settle for sloppy and rude people. Great Changes in store.

The amber is a nice place and kept seemly cleaned the staff were always friendly and helpful and always always busy tending to residents needs I felt they could use more help as I never see them taking any breaks while I was there visiting my friend. But in the last month the staff are not has friendly or happy lime before and appears to even have more work and stress put on them, the residents don't seen happy like before things have been taken off the walls that the residents had displayed for show,plants that use to welcome you when you first walk in have been removed,residents rooms have been gone thorough and had things removed without asking them,they longer can have anything on their doors, the new administrator is very cold,rude,unfriendly,doesn't talk to you but down to you. Has forbidden some of the residents to speak to other residents about anything relating to the changes and rules she has set..she already has lost some very valuable long term employees who cared and did their job making sure all the residents were taken care of and all there medications were given..the amber has went from a warm friendly place to a cold,unfriendly,non caring ,unhappy residents uninviting nursing home setting...I'm looking for a new place for my friend who has loved living there for the last 5yrs...she is scared of this new lady,she cries all the time...and now is having sleeping issues cause of all the changes and the way she drill Sargent talks to her and disrespect her and her opinions..I will never move another friend or family member into the amber as long as that women is in charge there and I'm differently telling everyone in know in this town and out of this town to don't move their loves one to the amber either...such a shame and a sadden thing to see happen to the amber in such a short time...in such disbelief that the company is allowing this to happen to one of their homes...

My mother is in The Amber. It is a very clean, nice, and pleasant place with a nice lobby with a piano. I am very impressed with the staff especially the individual helpers. The girl who helps my mother is patient and sweet.

I visited this facility
When I first arrived at The Amber, I was quite pleased. It is a very nice building with staff that seemed to be pleasant. I visited their lounge area where the residents can sit and relax, their cafeteria where they would have breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I then was taken upstairs in an elevator that didn't seem to work all that well where they proceeded to show me several of their rooms. One thing I noticed though was that the workers seemed to be very rough with the residents. 2 ladies seemed to be malnourished. I later went on to ask around our town what others thought of this Assisted living and heard that they had 2 ladies who could be violent as they had Dementia and none of the workers wanted to feed them, so they would just leave them. They rarely would eat. I'm thinking this could be the ladies I seen briefly. I also heard how they had a resident with MRSA who they did properly wear masks and gloves, but they didn't make her husband who was living with her. I felt this was definitely not the place I wanted my own grandma and decided to just have her live with a family member.
