This is a fantastic place with fantastic people! They truly made sure my mom was very well taken care of from the start.
She was able to:
* Meet people and have an ambassador to help her get to know [the community]
* Stay a night and try it out
* Dine with the guests and get to know folks
They made the experience easy and very wonderful for all involved. I cannot recommend these folks enough. Great facility with great people.
The location is good, and the facilities and activities are as well. St. Andrew’s Village has everything my mom needs. She can go from independent to assisted to full time nursing care. The food is very good as well as the surroundings.
St Andrews Village was newer, nicer and the location was perfect. They also had rehab there. They have enough assistance for mom to qualify for her long-term care insurance — the others I was referred to did not. She’s in assisted living with additional supplemental care. One thing I liked about it: It’s not as large as some of the other facilities in the assisted living industry. The staff is very kind. They’ve all been very caring. It’s a one-bedroom unit, which has a spacious bedroom with a twin bed in it and a kitchenette. There is place for a very small table that she can sit at and a small couch. She has two large chairs in there. It’s good for her. I eat there about 2 times a week. My mom is happy with the food most days. She likes the exercise classes, which she finds to be very helpful. Once a month, they have a piano player and some music. They have speakers who come in for different things. My mother has dementia so she doesn’t participate in the Bingo or some of the other activities.
They have a rehab center as well as long term nursing care. It is really nice. A girlfriend of mine was in there for rehab a couple of times. The aesthetics of the building and professionalism of the staff are outstanding. They’ll stop and talk to anyone, and take time to help you. The meal preparation and cleanliness were also good. The elevator was working and convenient, so it was easy for residents to use.
