Memory Care Reviews for The Village at Valley Creek

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Autumn Leaves was a nice place. I thought it was fine. It was relatively new and everything was clean. I understood the difficulty with the amount of patients that somebody has to deal with; I don’t know that I have a bad taste in my mouth. The thing that kind of concerned me was the fact that they were really not prepared for her. One of the people that was working there told me that probably this was not the place for Alice -- that she needed 24 hour nursing care. She developed severe diarrhea and dehydration. The problem started at home. It wasn’t that they were ignoring her or anything like that. I just had to transfer her. I just told them that probably she could get better care if she was in a place where there’s 24 hour nursing. I wasn’t aware of any objections to it. I think they recognized too. I never felt that they were trying to talk me out of it or anything like that. It was kind of apparent to me that some of the help were just young ladies that were trained to help take care of people. I just don’t feel that I can make complete judgment on it because on my side I realized I was just concerned about Alice and how they were taking care of her. I have a pass card that I can just come in anytime and can stay long as I want. I was encouraged to come and share a meal with her. I thought the meals were pretty good, and most of the time I didn’t help her in the cafeteria. They were allowed to go to a recreation room. I know the first time I brought her there, she thought we were going out to eat. That was kind of nice. So in that respect again, I thought that was a good thing to do. I don’t think I would be hesitant to recommend somebody to look into that place.

I have been to this facility many times. I have been for short visits and very long visits. The administrator knows her residents and doesn't stay in her office all the time. The staff is always pleasant towards the residents. Having worked in an assisted living and worked in the memory care unit I know how hard and over whelming it can get at times. This place is one of the best I have been to.

About The Village at Valley Creek

Our Memory Care program offers a safe environment for seniors with memory challenges. We aim to help maintain each person’s unique sense of self by honoring his or her life experiences. Care is based on Alzheimer’s Association guidelines to create a soothing, tranquil atmosphere that gives residents a sense of comfort, dignity, and well-being in a familiar, home-like setting.

Memory care residents live in their own private or semi-private apartment homes with plenty of space to allow families to decorate with cherished items and memorabilia to create all the comforts of home. Staff is trained to get to know each resident on a personal level so that every day is filled with activities that celebrate each resident’s own lifetime achievements, successes, and accomplishments.
