Assisted Living Reviews for Narrows Glen

I am a friend or relative of resident

First of all, this facility's outward appearance is nice and clean and very well decorated. Apparently, that's where the high costs of living they charge there are going to and I'm sure the Independent Living section is fine for those residents. However, in my opinion, their Assisted Living section, "Laurel House", is a totally different story. It is VERY expensive and not at all on par in relation to the level of care a particular resident received. An ongoing problem is with many of their CNA caregivers - many exhibited bad attitudes towards the resident and are clearly only there for a paycheck and it shows! The food was bland and institutional on several occasions when I visited. Hardly a month went by when I wasn't having to call management to complain about the resident's care (or rather, LACK of care) issues. Around Christmas time, they actually had the gall to send out letters asking for money to give to their caregivers as a bonus! SERIOUSLY??!! They don't do what they get paid to do in the first place! If I could rate this place only HALF a star, I would.

Narrows Glen was a little more expensive. The staff is nice; they are good. Every once in a while we've had a dinner there because my husband is singing there and they put on a dinner for singers. We've done a tour there, and it is very nice. We've looked at some rooms, but I don't really know too much about that.

I visited this facility

We visited Narrows Glen for ourselves. My first impression of it was that it was small. The environment was alright. It was a little bit of drab though. There wasn't a cheerful atmosphere. The staff though was really friendly to me. We didn't see any activities at that time but she said they have indoor activities scheduled every week. For accommodations, we did see a studio and a one-bedroom unit and they were just way too small for us. The dining room wasn't bad. They fixed us a meal, but I wasn't really happy with the taste of the food. It was kind of bland.

I am/was a resident of this facility

We moved into Narrows Glen for approximately two years and my wife was there maybe six months before we moved her to another place. They have three levels of care; retirement care, assisted living and memory care. She lived with me in retirement care before we moved her to the memory care facility while I stayed in retirement care. The memory care facility was quite nice including the rooms. Their policy was to lock the residents out of their rooms during the day and they could not enter their rooms except when they were accompanied by a caregiver to do toileting or bathing. The residents were in a community room or recreation room where they sat and did things all day. They had a nice and secure lock down facility but the administrative policy didn't sit well with my family and myself. They had a separate dining room which was very nice and the food was very good. They also had a separate dining room for the assisted living and another for the retirement care unit. They have a really wonderful food service staff. You can order almost anything you want as opposed to some facilities where they just bring your food and set it in front of you. It's a top-notch facility with a total of 200 residents and I would like to move back there.

My mother was a resident for 4 years. The facility I thought was well managed. The caregivers seemed nice and sincere, and my mother seemed comfortable there as well. The home itself is quite nice with gardens and a fitness center.
