Assisted Living Reviews for Grace Park

Grace Park is immaculate and clean. The staff is great. The overall feeling of it is welcoming, and as soon as I walked in, I said it was the place for my mom. Everything about it was a positive experience and I feel very comfortable about putting my mom there. I'm so impressed with it. They have a variety of different types of rooms available that you can choose from. They have a dining room where they are given a menu. We had lunch there and it was outstanding. I would recommend it to anybody.

Grace Park had cottages, apartments, assisted living, and a lockdown. The staff who toured us around was very nice and helpful. We had lunch, and the food was delicious, like in a restaurant. The place was very nice, neat, and up to date. They had a gym, beauty parlor, TV room, and game room.

My Dad moved into Grace Park several months ago. He is 88 with multiple serious chronic diseases. We looked at several assisted living places and this was, by far, the best. I learned that is a private, family-owned business and I've talked with one of the owners at family-day events (these seem to be held once every 2-3 months, where families are invited to enjoy a special meal and event with their loved one). I also see him regulary when I go to visit my Dad. Clean, with home-y decorations, friendly staff, on-site RN, and medical check-ups, blood work. They offer a full range of care levels, from independent cottage living, to the more typical supportive care, and finally to hospice and lock-down Alzheimer's care. Cost increases with level of care and size of room. Cost seems average to slightly higher than average. Social activities daily. Off-site activities like shopping, movies, special events. Weekly transportation to doctor appointments. I've eaten lunch with him 2 times and the food is good. They adjust meals to special diets. Some caregivers provide services on site, like a podiatrist. There is a salon, and weekly Christian worship services. The other residents are generally friendly. I am extremely happy with this place! His quality of life, socially, emotionally, and physically, is much higher than when he was living on his own in an apartment, with home health aides coming to help out. If I ever need assisted living, Grace Park is where I would choose to go!

We were able to check Grace Park and look at some of the rooms. We liked it. That's one of the places that we're looking at. It looked nice. It is on the main street but yet when you're in the village, it is like you're off the main street, which is nice.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Mom is 93 and she's been staying in a place in our hometown called Grace Park and it is somewhere I know she will be comfortable. It's a fairly good size establishment and it has lots of people around. The people are helpful and they have registered nurses. The fundamentals of taking care and treatment of elderly there are good. I am very pleased so far. My mom could easily go into a nursing home, but they are trying to keep her active and moving. They encourage her to walk to the dining room and if she can't make it to the dining room, they will provide a meal for her. They have a doctor to go there to check them. They got a very active social life. They have transportation for trips to do shopping. They even have beauty parlors for them. May be they just need to improve on the inter-personal relationships with the families and could use additional staff, but they've done a pretty good job so far and my mom is happy there. It's a bit costly, but I recommend it to others.
