Assisted Living Reviews for Deane Hill Place

I visited this facility

I went to Deane Hill Place. It's a very desirable living area for assisted living and probably memory care. I was shown every aspect of the units, and they're clean and comfortable, or at least sufficient for a patient. They're light and bright, they have good access to views of the outdoors, and for some they even provide little patios. All that is wonderful; the activities are just a bonus. The calendar of activities provides the seniors there with many things to do, lots of people to connect with, and a caring staff, some of whom have been on board for a long time. I thank Talbot and the tour in general for a good experience.

I've been very interested in Deane Hill Place. The manager was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable, and it has obviously been in the business for some time. It was an important thing to me that the manager seemed to really care about the people that were there and the property itself. I looked at one room, and he showed me the grounds, the properties, a couple of hallways, and the common area. The room I saw was a basic accommodation. It's a single room, but they had suites. It's an older property, but it's in a centralized location, which I think probably got the best thing going for it. It appeared well-kept.

Deane Hill Place has a facility that tries to recreate the character of the person. They have a simulation of kitchens for those who cook, but because it's a memory care home, it's not a real kitchen. They have them reflect on what they used to do. They also have workspaces for gardening for those who like to go out or used to garden. They ask for a history of what the person did and their hobbies, so they may do it during their activities time. They do many things to make sure that the residents keep their dignity and character. They also have courtyards for games. However, my father may have benefited more if he were in the assisted living section versus the memory care section because they treat them more independent in the memory care unit. There needs to be more interaction and they aren't as social. I love his apartment. It has a very spacious room and big windows. I like that there are rails in the restroom that you can hold on to and he has a choice to sit or stand in his shower. It's not a step-in shower, but an open floor with some drainage. They also have buttons in their rooms and the showers, so if there's anything that they need, they can quickly press the button and the staff will come running.

Deane Hill Place's website indicates that it's like staying at The Hilton and shows a beautiful room that's very clean and furnished. But that's misleading, because the actual room is not furnished and you provide your own furniture. For the price they charge, I would think that furniture would be included, particularly since most of them have to have a hospital bed. The website also doesn't indicate that you provide all your toiletry, and once again, I would have thought those are already included based on the cost. You only find out about it once you sign the papers. The place looks very clean and neat. They offer physical therapy, dances and shows for the residents, and activities like arts and crafts. They also have a gated common area and live in cottages instead of one building, with 13 residents to a cottage. It bothers me that they kept changing management. They indicated that they're improving the food and what I saw looked pretty good. The staff has turned over, but the ones I've worked with have been very good.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I was in Deane Hill Place. I have to congratulate them on the staff. They were excellent, but the guy that ran the place was a jerk, and some of the inmates were a little tough to live with. They had a Thursday afternoon wine get together which I went to once. That was the only organized activity that I knew of. They had an exercise room, and in the next building, they had physical therapy which was good. The food was good. Breakfast at 7 is a little bit too early for me, and I don’t like eating dinner at 5 o’clock in the afternoon, which is what it was. My room was clean. I get 2 newspapers every day, and every day, somebody would steal them. Nobody ever said they could fix that.

It was a beautiful community which was one of the things that we were interested in. It was very nice, but it costs more money. They have a van to take you to shopping and doctor’s offices.

It was in a nice neighborhood. It was clean and nice. I felt the rooms were small. If I were going to stay in Knoxville, I would probably choose this place. It was probably in an upscale neighborhood. I thought it was good. The lady who showed me the place was helpful, and they were willing to negotiate a little bit on the price.

I chose it for my father because they allowed us to have his dog in the room. The staff is very friendly and patient with Dad because he is having a pretty hard adjustment. They are also encouraging and helpful. We have only been there a week, but so far, so good. The rooms are fine. They're good. My dad has the smallest studio apartment, but they have bigger ones available.

I've got my wife in here. She's in a wheelchair with Alzheimer's, and she can hardly do anything. The care is very good. The nurses are excellent. They help get her out of bed and give her a shower. She got hospice help in there now. They give her her medicine, they help her in her wheelchair, they push her in the dining room to eat, and they put her clothes on her. I've eaten with her a lot of times. The dining area is very nice, but their food, they have to mash it up for her. Where Fran is, they have a lot of gates on the building. You can't get out without an alarm going off. It's very nice outside, and then they have entertainment all the time. They had a live band this past summer in the courtyard. They are probably about as personable as you can be. She is on the main level, and it's only one level, so it makes it a lot easier for her to get in and out.

Everything was great. The staff was very good. The only issue was the room; they didn't have a large room. The dining room had a small family style kitchen. What impressed me most was the friendliness of the staff and the people.

Our visit was very nice. It was clean and taken care of nicely. They have several different types of rooms, which were normal types. They have lots of activities and are constantly doing stuff and playing games. They always have something to keep you busy.

My grandmother is now in here. We chose it because it is the one closest to us and is only about a 10-minute drive away. Also, it is one of the top-rated facilities here. The staff was really nice and sweet. They do a good job working with my grandmother. The rooms are a good size. She is in a small room size, but it is has plenty of space for her stuff, and she has a really large shower. They had activities like walking groups and meetings. They have somebody to do their nails and hair.

My in-laws has just moved in five weeks ago. The place is very nice. The staff has been very accommodating to my in-laws. My in-laws are also pleased with the food. Some of the residents have this blank look on their faces, but others look very happy being there. My in-laws, however, are very pleased with this facility.

Everything was clean and spacious. The outside area where they sat was really pretty. Everybody was helpful and friendly. We saw one room which was unoccupied at that time and it was pretty. They had activities and they took the residents to movies and little excursions. The eating area was clean and I liked that. The set-up seemed good but it was a little far from us.

The rooms available at this facility did not really fit what we had wished to find. They were on the small side though there was plenty of storage. The facility promises good care for those with dementia, something we are really looking for for our elderly family member. One thing we really did appreciate about the facility was the dining. The meals are not the average with no flavor and fewer choices. The worst thing about the facility, as a whole, was the location. We were looking for something closer to the Turkey Creek area for our family member and were disappointed. Over all, the facility is nice, even if the rooms are small, the staff seems pleasant and ready to help with the tasks that a family member would normally take care of. We really appreciated the fact that the staff is well versed in dementia and how to handle an independent person who just needed a "little" help.
