I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Chandler Hall is a lovely, clean, comfortable, and beautiful facility. The staff is kind and friendly. It’s reasonable for the services they provide, he is happy there, and they are very accommodating. They do scenic nights on the weekend, bingo, discussions, and various holiday luncheons. The building that he is in has a nice kitchen area if you wanted to have a family gathering you could do that and utilize the kitchen services. It’s separate from the kitchen and the dining area where the residents eat. They do some game time sometimes, and they have a beautiful porch that the residents can sit out on it in the nice weather. I didn’t think there was a place that was as nice as that. It definitely meets all the qualifications you would want for your love one to be in assisted living. You can do independent living to hospice care.

I am a friend or relative of resident

Very disappointed........Mom is a dementia patient and is staying at Hicks in Chandler Hall. Three times in the last month and 1/2 I have found Mom's medication in her pockets when I go to do her laundry, She is supposed to be given meds at dinnertime by a CNA or Nurse and they are supposed to watch her take the meds - SHE IS AFTER ALL A DEMENTIA PATIENT ! I did speak to the staff after each incident - and now I will file a formal complaint with the State Licensing. Mom has been at Chandler Hall for the past year and THEY HAVE REALLY GONE DOWN HILL.

Chandler Hall came from a strong recommendation, and from my own observation; plus its close by. I am extremely pleased with the staff. I would recommend them. No complaints with regards to billing, and management.
