Assisted Living Reviews for Mill Creek Manor

September 29, 2017

By Margaret

I visited this facility

Amara Place was being remodeled and everything was askew when we visited. I wouldn't go there because the kitchen was small. They showed me five different rooms that were all small and pretty much the same. It's hot here in South Carolina, but their patios weren't covered, although they did have some umbrellas outside.

Amara Place's apartment was very nice and big, and it had a patio, but it was in a separate building. There were lots of different buildings, which weren't connected, and to get to the dining room, I would have had to go outside and walked through the parking area. It would have been kind of scary, and I just didn't like that.

We chose Summers Landing for my mother because it was the most affordable and it's five minutes from my home. They got a nice floor plan, a big kitchen, and lots of cabinets. They're fully-equipped and modern. I love the apartments. They have 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. They have activities for anybody who wants to participate whether you live within assisted living building or you live in their apartments. They take trips and they have movies and games. They have a lot of beauty shops on the premises. I am very pleased with the service that my mother is getting.

Independent Living Reviews for Mill Creek Manor

October 01, 2019

By Sue

I visited this facility

Amara Place was nice. However, they had more people in the assisted living area than they do in the independent. I met some lovely people there, but there were only about eight people and they were in a very small dining room. They separated the assisted living people from those who can do for themselves because some of the people had to be fed, and some of the people were in wheelchair. It was a little more segregated than I would like for it to be. The group I was with was a much smaller group, but everything was fine. The apartments were modern and very neat. They were not too many all in one place; they were spread out nicely. Food was excellent. They also had diabetic dessert which was so good for me. It was excellent. It was not a large place but it was very well maintained, very fresh, and clean.

Amara Place was very well laid out. I liked that the independent living was separate, but not completely so. They would check on you in the mornings and make sure you're doing OK even though it's independent living. They have nice one- and two-bedrooms. The floor plan was really nice and pleasant. They have arts and crafts, and cards, and if I don't want to cook, I can go out and eat in the hall. It was pleasant and clean. The staff was very efficient and very pleasant, very welcoming when you walk in the door, and very friendly. They're great people, very courteous, and they answered all my questions. It was very well kept. The maintenance was awesome, including the yard. Everything was perfect and topnotch. The price was just way too much out of my bounds for independent living.

I am/was a resident of this facility

We have already moved into Amara Place. All the other clients seem to be very friendly and helpful. The staff got a big growth spurt at the same time we moved in. We eat three meals a day, and it has been good food. They take trips to stores, they have crafts and games, and they have a monthly friends and family night. We visited several different places, but Amara Place was the one that we felt met our needs.

Memory Care Reviews for Mill Creek Manor

March 21, 2021

By Susan

I visited this facility

We're leaning very heavily toward Mill Creek Manor for my father. We saw everything. The staff seemed very friendly and attentive. The facility and grounds themselves appeared very clean and sanitary. Out of the facilities that we have looked at, it had the best maintenance. The area was secure, and it made me feel that my father would be safe in that memory care facility with the security that they had. The staff showed us a movie room and an activity area. There was an outside area that they could sit in that was 100% secure. We're moving him within the next thirty days.

Provider Response
