Covington Senior Living (Lehi) Memory Care was hands down the best decision we made for where our sweet mom could have lived!! She passed away a year ago today, so this is a tribute to mom, and those who loved her and cared for her outside of family. Covington staff became "family" to me. They treated my mom and me with love and respect! They gave me peace of mind. I was the only family by mom in all of Utah, so this was extremely touching and helpful to me.
We were looking for a facility that was large enough to have a variety of residents and activities, but small enough that it didn't seem overwhelming to our mom. Size is important for a person with dementia. The layout for the memory care was very important so it didn't seem overwhelming to her, but big enough that she had space and room for activities. It needed to look like a home environment, with nice natural light and access to the outside courtyard for fresh air and exercise. We looked for a place that had a door that would have the top half opened so she could be checked on, yet the bottom half closed for her privacy, and to make sure other residents didn't wander in.
Our mom was quite high functioning, and so we wanted to have a place for her that there were several others that were similar to her physically and mentally. And Covington had that.
The staff was amazing!! They were so very kind and very knowledgeable on how to care for memory care residents. Every single one of them smiled and genuinely cared. The facility is simply beautiful!! And so clean! The food was also very good.
There is simply not one thing I would have changed. I would HIGHLY recommend this facility to anyone that wants their loved one to feel comfortable, and for the family members to be able to have the assurance that excellent care and stimulation will be given. I really do understand how hard it is to put your parent into a facility, so having quality people be there for your loved one will give you the peace of mind you seek. You will feel that you don't have to do this journey all by yourself. And you don't.
