Assisted Living Reviews for Cottonwood Creek

The team at Cottonwood Creek is wonderful, kind and caring. It is a lovely facility with a charming fireplace and large living room when you enter that makes you feel right at home. The staff made the transition very easy for my dad and made him feel welcome and taken care of. The whole team is very accessible and supportive. Ashlee in the marketing office was super helpful even before my dad moved in with assisting us in getting things organized and also visited my father in his nursing home to welcome him and make him feel comfortable before he moved in. My dad is very happy there and settled in quickly. His most favorite part is the delicious food and friendly service in the beautiful dining room. There is a lot of light and windows throughout the building, it’s very clean and warm. My dad also enjoys the gym, many activities and the nice walking path outside that circles the building so that he will not get lost. Not only is my dad very happy it is also a great place for family to visit him. We feel very lucky that we found Cottonwood Creek!

We have been very pleased with the the care that our Aunt has received at Cottonwood Creek. When there have been issues they have addressed them quickly and resolved them to our satisfaction. The facility is old but well maintained. Austin, the maintenance Assistant is exceptionally available when you need him. He has helped us move our aunt from one room to another. He has also helped us with small maintenance issues in her room. Cottonwood Creek is lucky to have Austin, he is a quality guy.The staff seems warm and genuinely concerned about our Aunt. The CNA's are over worked and underpaid therefore turnover is huge.This problem is unfortunately widespread in other facilities as well and this impacts the residents. All in all Cottonwood Creek is a suitable place for our relative.

Provider Response

We’re delighted to know your Aunt has received nothing but quality care from our Cottonwood Creek team. Thank you for letting us know about the impact we had on you both. We appreciate hearing that needs are met, the community is well maintained and you feel genuine care by all staff.

I toured Cottonwood Creek. It was similar to other places and old but clean and well kept. The downside was the apartment itself; the bathroom was right off the front door, not near the bedroom, which was on the opposite side of the apartment. I thought that was strange. They showed me another apartment, which was a lot nicer. The staff was pretty good on the tour, but not as good on questions, and certainly not that friendly. They served three meals a day. They had a large auditorium, a large theater, and a lot of activities.

Provider Response

At MBK Senior Living, we strive daily to exceed the quality and care expectations of those we serve. While we’re pleased to hear that you enjoyed the spacious common areas and ample amenities offered here, we’re sorry to hear some aspects of our community fell short of your expectations. We would appreciate hearing more specifics regarding your experience so that we can use this opportunity to improve. Would you be willing to call our Executive Director to discuss further? She can be reached at 801-923-3661. Thank you.

Cottonwood Creek was wonderful. They showed us around and gave out a lot more information there. It was a little bit more expensive than the other place we saw, but I can see why because their people probably received a lot more care than my stepfather did in the other community he had been in. The staff was really nice and fully staffed. I could see that the people were taken care of better than in other places. The facility was very nice. They had an exercise room.

They seemed to be very busy at Cottonwood Creek, but it was nice. The room we saw was right off the garden and really nice. We felt like it was really busy, which is good for some people, but maybe not so much for our mother.

I think that Cottonwood Creek is a great facility. It has many activities for the seniors who live there. All of the people who work there know all the residents. It has a very friendly feel when you walk in. They have good spaces for people to spend time; while the apartments are small, the spaces are outside. The community spaces are really pleasant. They have great activities, and the rooms are very nice. They have ADA bathrooms, a laundry room, and a beautician there. They have access to doctors there, and they have a nursing staff all the time. They have activities above and beyond what is daily.

Great staff. The aids could use more training in being more happy about assisting. The nurses are wonderful as are those at the desk. Always upbeat. The nurse keeps in contact with me via text or a phone call if any needs or questions arise.

I visited Cottonwood Creek. It was a very nice facility. I was impressed with it. I was impressed with the staff too. They're very friendly. It would be a very appropriate place to take care of my grandmother.

The staff at Cottonwood Creek has been good to my sister, and the rooms are spacious there. For as many tenants that they have, it’s a big job for all of them, so they are shorthanded. The food is really good. They have all kinds of things going on; they take them to the bank, stores, rides, lunch some place, and movies overnight, and they have wine tasting on Sundays.

My mom likes Cottonwood Creek a lot. It does not have memory care. They are like independent and assisted living. One of my friends lives there. She had to go to assisted living, and so we have been visiting her off and on. That is why we got familiar with it. The food is just kind of mediocre. They have singing, playing the piano, and movies. It seemed like there are a lot of activities going on. The place seems well kept up. They have fresh flowers on the lobby. They have a nice, wide, open dining room where people can sit wherever they want to. It seems like a good facility.

We moved my parents to Cottonwood Creek several years ago. Initially, it was a difficult transition going from a large home to apartment living. However, the staff at Cottonwood Creek made them feel at home and it was a great experience for them. My mother passed away in July of 2014 and the staff was extremely kind and thoughtful. They took special care of my dad during his hardest time especially after moving him into the AL2 section. The CNA's in the AL2 section take great care of my sweet dad and I am grateful for their kindness and extra care they provide to him. I would recommend Cottonwood Creek as a great place to live.

Cottonwood Creek was very good. The staff was great. I checked out their studio apartment. It’s very clean and very well taken care of. They have a restaurant style eating area and it was very clean. They have a full day of activities. I think the whole picture of the facility is good; it’s very warm.

Everything was very excellent at Cottonwood. It appeared to be very clean, updated, and friendly. I had lunch with them and it was good. The service was a little flop, but it was okay. The room that I saw was very nice, there is a large walk-in closet, and I was well aware that the furniture was small scale which made the rooms probably look bigger than they were. They gave me a calendar of activities like bingo, cooking demonstrations, they take residents shopping, rides to some places, and they have a church there.

Making this step with our beloved Mother has been quite the emotional roller coaster. Cottonwood Creek has been amazing from the very beginning. Jaime as a first indepth contact has been so incredibly helpful. She walked my sister and I through the whole process, then hand held my Mother helping guide her to agree. Coming from a sales back ground I understand her position. After moving Mother in I assumed that was it, she did her job. Nope, day after day she is there with the same caring help. MBK is lucky to have Jaime! Her kindness is plentiful and genuine. Her ever ready smile is infectious. I just need to say every single encounter with employees at Cottonwood Creek in every single department has been excellent. Everyone has such a sweet caring attitude.Everyone is treated so well and addressed by name. Other assisted living places pale by comparison. You have such a great team it makes the whole atmosphere there uplifting. People are living, not merely existing. The food is excellent and well planned. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everyone's job well done. Looking forward to my Mother living there for many years!

I liked the cleanliness and openness of Cottonwood Creek. It was warm, nice, very up scale and very comfortable. The rooms were very nice. The staff was also very nice and had provided me with the essential information that I needed to know. They had a number of activities like outings, games, television and Wii games. I would recommend them to others.

My Grandmother was at this facility for a few months. Firstly, I must say, the building was always kept in good order and the staff were very friendly. I thought they were very well trained and knew what they were doing. I never had any trouble finding any one to help me or my Grandmother while she was staying there. The yard, garden, and area around the facility appeared well taken care of and healthy as well as the residents. My Grandmother spoke of how kind the staff was to her when we were gone, which honestly eased our minds. I felt my Grandmother was safe and well taken care of during her stay. I would most definitely recommend this location for those in need of Assisted Living Care.
