This is by far the best memory care facility that I have seen. My mother has been there for several months and the care is excellent. Each cottage (with about 15 residents) is based on the resident's level of cognition and need for assistance. Caregivers are uniformly patient, friendly and helpful. Clothes are washed daily, rooms kept clean, residents are dressed appropriately in a pleasant atmosphere. My mother does not want to be there and is not as well adjusted to the setting as most of the other residents, but it is by far the best situation for her care.
My husband is in The Waterford at Creekside. The personnerl are great. It is not a huge institutional facility. It is a series of seven different cottages based upon that particular person’s need at the moment. The food is wonderful. Right now, he is in a semi-private room that really looks like a piece of home. Each building has its own kitchen. The meals are prepared in the central location and brought to the individual cottages. They very much monitor his health care and his well-being. I cannot say enough good things about it.
We visited The Waterford. I thought it was an interesting concept in memory care, and they only showed us the first level of care. It was a little bit older, and the rooms were a little smaller. The staff seemed friendly. They had outings, games, and two attendants in each room who not only prepared the meals but provided the activities. They had a main building where they had programs for everybody in the cottages. Each cottage had an open kitchen, and the residents eat family-style at a table.
