Assisted Living Reviews for Aster Retirement Community of Cottage Grove

July 28, 2015

By Lynne22

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom was already in one, and I took her out, so she is living with me right now. I think Aster was a good place. I just thought it was too big. They didn't have -- and not that she needed it at that time -- but they didn't even have an elevator at one end of the building, and it was huge. So, she had to walk a really long distance to the one elevator. She was able to do it, but I don't know how many others could, or how much longer she would have been able to, and I just thought that it was really too big. I would want her in a smaller place than that. There wasn't enough staff. They were good, but there weren't enough of them. My mother had a two-room apartment, but there were efficiencies, which were one-room, and there may have been even three rooms in some of them. Hers was just a two-room apartment. It had a kitchenette, a full-sized refrigerator, and a full-sized stove -- but they feed them their meals there, so I didn't think that it was a good idea especially the stove because my mother has dementia -- and a microwave, which she used to put inappropriate things in there. I don't know why they wasted the space with that kitchen really. I think they did fairly well with the activities, and they took them out on outings. Some of them were kind of boring like to a shopping mall, but that is not the generation that goes to malls and likes to shop for a hobby like younger people do. They did take them out once a month somewhere. Mom did not sign up for many of those trips though. They didn't really interest her. I think they took them to see Christmas decorations around the city at Christmas time, they took them to a play, and they did a couple of other things that were fun.
