I did a tour of Legacy House of Bountiful. They were very informative, and very kind. They answered our questions. It looks like for someone who needs assisted living, they provide a social network. They have an in-house doctor, and the apartments were nice and clean; I was impressed.
They give you all the facts right up front; they give you a brochure with the breakdown of the costs, so you know exactly what you're looking at. It's a friendly environment. The staff all seems to know each other and know the residents. So, in particular, that one I like because they have a pet, which is a big plus for my dad. They're allowed to have dogs and they actually have a house dog that can go around.
They have three different rooms. You can do a single bedroom, a double bedroom, or a studio, and you can also pick which floor you're on so you can keep costs down a little bit if you want to, but if you want to pay a little bit more for a nicer room, you can. The thing that really is important to me, is that the wheelchair can literally roll right into the shower.
They have a microwave in the room, and if they want to keep snacks and warm them up, they can. If somebody were really, really sick, it may not be the place for them, but for someone who didn't have a lot of medical needs, I would rate it a five. I mostly interacted with the office manager, but she was great. On food, I didn't really get to taste any of it or really see it, but they have options for every meal, which I like.
There are only certain things I was looking for, but for the guys looking for that, everywhere was very wheelchair accessible. There were elevators everywhere. It was clean, it was up kept. I think some facilities are a little bit newer, but that doesn't really matter to me. It was well cared for, and it was very accessible with a wheelchair. They had a really nice dining room, a nice theater room, and gym; they have these things that you would want.
