Copper Place is a very nice, very cozy assisted living facility. The facility is open and spacious, with a lot of natural light pouring onto the common areas that are simply, but beautifully decorated in comfy furniture and sitting areas for residents and visitors to relax and socialize. The staff members are always so welcoming and they do an amazing job in maintaining a clean, well-functioning facility while ensuring that each resident is happy and well cared for. The residents all seem to love living at Copper Place, I am always being told by residents that they have a lot of fun living there – they say that there is always something going on for them to participate in – some fun activity or program, live entertainment, enjoyable event/party or some special field trip/outing, etc.
The apartments are also very nice – they are well-designed in a way that creatively uses the available square footage to make the apartment’s look and feel open and spacious, with creative storage places and great kitchen areas. The apartments, whether you choose a Studio or One-Bedroom, are also very handicapped accessible as well.
You will love Copper Place – out of the few choices of senior living options available in Yuma, AZ, you would be hard spent to try and find any place better than Copper Place.
Aurora Place is a beautiful, very cozy and home-like Assisted Living facility. There are not too many senior living choices in Apache Junction, so when I visited this facility, I was very relieved to see a community that was on point across the board from cleanliness to quality of care to activities to services/amenities to food service, and so on. The staff members are all very friendly and they are wonderful with the residents. The community is very well-kept and secure – I feel that they put resident safety above all else. There are many activities available each week and the residents are encouraged to participate and maintain a social and active lifestyle. There are many options the residents can take advantage of in order to keep strong, healthy, and fit – there are many activities that focus on physical fitness and there is a gorgeous courtyard the resident can walk around in. Aurora Place is a great senior living option that I would absolutely recommend to perspective residents and their families.
Cameron House is a cute, cozy, very homey Assisted Living community. The staff members are very caring with the residents - they provide some of the most patient, encouraging, dignified, and therapeutic care I have ever had the pleasure of observing. When staff members take the time to not only learn the names of the residents, but their families as well, it shows that they really do put the happiness of the residents first.
I have been visiting Cameron House for quite some time now and while it has not always been perfect every time, I can see that in the last couple of visits, they have really held themselves accountable in getting the kinks straightened out. In my last 2 visits, I did not note a single issue, which sadly – is a refreshing and welcome surprise when it comes to senior living communities.
I like that Cameron House is a smaller, more intimate setting - it is considered a Micro-Community, which allows for more one-on-one care and attention. You will enjoy Cameron House for all that they stand for and for the care they provide to the residents.
Kingswood Place is a part of Enlivant Senior Living Communities. I have been in Enlivant communities across the nation and I have been pleased with every one of them. Enlivant holds their communities to very high standards. The corporation is very involved in the day to day functions of each of their communities – they are not simply a silent owner behind the scenes – they strive to ensure that each and every one of their communities throughout the nation is well staffed, well maintained, well managed, and that every resident feels safe and delighted to call each facility home. Kingswood Place is a great example of just how well the Enlivant communities are ran.
The facility is very homey, very cozy, and always so clean. The staff members work very hard to provide a safe, loving, and beautiful place for the residents to call home. The residents seem to fill the common areas which to me is always a good sign that they feel comfortable within the facility. The entire community, indoors and out, are safe and well-lit. The apartments are good size and offer just enough storage and convenience.
I would absolutely recommend Kingswood Place, it is a wonderful, caring facility and a part of a group of senior living communities that you can feel confident in.
Facility: This is a smaller facility (I believe 40-50 beds) and with smaller facilities come some advantages, such as:
- A smaller facility usually means a better staff member-to-resident ratio which in turn means more one-on-one care and individualized treatment.
- Another benefit is that smaller facilities feel more cozy and offer more of a homey feel whereas large communities tend to feel more corporate, hospital/institution or resort like, lots of times making it feel more like a vacation then a home.
- In small facilities, residents tend to have more opportunity when it comes to helping design the food service menus, the activity and event schedule, and they have more input into how things are ran throughout the facility. In a facility of 10 residents or less, a complaint about the room temperature may be shown more response then the same complaint in a facility of 100 residents or more.
There are many reasons why smaller communities seems to be in such high demand and it is definitely worth checking out and comparing the smaller facilities against the larger communities you visit.
Residents: Residents at Baldwin House seem to really enjoy themselves. They appear comfortable in the facility and they seem to really, truly feel “at home.” They also seem to really get along well with one another and there is such a family-like feeling you get in watching the residents interact with one another.
Staff/Quality of Care: The staff members go out of their way in providing exceptional care to the residents and they are happy to accommodate the needs of visiting family members and friends as well.
Activities: There are a variety of activities available for the residents at Baldwin House.
Facility: Cameron House is smaller community, known as a micro-community, which happily makes it feel more like a large home then an assisted living facility. The atmosphere is simple, yet classic, and so welcoming. It is a gorgeous community that feels cheery and bright, and more importantly, it feels safe. So safe, in fact, that I would feel very content with placing a loved one in the facility. The apartments are nice and spacious with ample storage; they offer the residents privacy that helps them feel independent, respected, and dignified.
Residents: The residents seem to be very close-knit, which is often something that takes place in these smaller micro-communities. You get that small town “everyone-knows-everyone” type of impression when you interact with the residents and watch them interact with one another. They always have very nice things to say about the community and compliments seem to rain down freely during most of the conversations I have had with the residents and their loved ones. Family members also seem to be very happy with the services and amenities offered to the residents, along with the level of care the residents receive.
Staff/Quality of Care: The staff members appear to be very good in interacting with the residents, visitors, and family members. They seem happy to be there and to enjoy the work they do, which is a refreshing to see. They truly seem to care for the health and safety of the residents and appear to care for them as if they were family.
Activities: The residents are offered many fun activities and since it is a smaller community, they are able to request and plan for many of the activities they do. They have social circles and clubs, ladies-only activities, special trips and outings, musical activities, games, and much more. They are able to stay as busy as they like with the amount of activities offered throughout the community.
Food: While I have never personally been on a visit during a mealtime, I have always heard many compliments surrounding the menu options, the quality of the food, and the attention to detail that is placed into the meal times by the kitchen staff.
This facility is a more intimate assisted living facility. Front door is locked at all times with a code, which is ideal for dementia/alzheimer's residents. This facility, however, does not provide transportation. This leaves their residents setting up their own transportation which is extremely limited in Apache Junction.
As a vendor I have visited Mondell House on several occasions. The staff is very friendly and well trained. Their residents receive a high level of care. The management does a good job of providing a very homey atomsphere for the residents. Rooms are comfortable and clean and details to safety for the residents. I would feel comfortable leaving my love one in their care.
