Memory Care Reviews for Apple Grove

September 14, 2012

By carolb1

I am a past client of this provider

I was very pleased with the care my mother received at Apple Grove. Every person who had a hand in her care was compassionate, skilled, and most of all - kind. It is very hard dealing with dementia patients, and much patience is needed. Everyone at Apple Grove was patient, gentle, caring, loving, and tactful. I highly recommend Apple Grove's family of caregivers.

I visited this facility

This place was wonderful in the beginning of my grandmother's stay. But then the more older people they got there, the more difficult it was to accommodate everyone living there. They never seem to have enough staff and the employees were definitely not educated enough to take care of people with Alzsheimer. It was definitely scarly when I started to notice conflicts between the residence that were not being handled, residence getting hurt and even the smell of urine in the hallways. I hope the owners have taken care of the problems.
Provider Response

The management and staff of Apple Grove Alzheimer's Residence and Adult Day Care are very concerned about the experience your family member had at our residence. As the foremost assisted living in the Memphis area dedicated to caring for individuals with Alzheimer's we offer a secure environment along with a dedicated staff. Our management and staff are very concerned about cleanliness especially odors. We would very much like to rectify this matter as we strive to offer the best in memory care.
