Assisted Living Reviews for Friends Home in Kennett

July 05, 2012

By emilycook1

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My grandmother has been at this facility for over 3 years and we have never had any problems. The staff is excellent. They are always kind and friendly, and very understanding when we bring my grandma home late! They also call to inform us if my grandmother is sick or behaving strangely, like not eating. They always keep us in the loop. The facility is small, but it has a comforting, community feel to it. Each room is a single with closet room and a bathroom. The facility also allows residents to bring in their own furniture like chairs and dressers if they want to. The facility also has a spacious wrap-around deck with lots of chairs. The lawn and garden beds are well kept, and it is a beautiful place to sit in the spring and summer. They also have lots of activities throughout the week to keep residents entertained, like holiday parties, craft days, and musical groups that come to perform. Overall Friends Home is a fantastic facility.
