My mother has been at Windriver for about a year and a half and we have all been very happy with her care. This is an assisted living facility - and not geared for those with severe dementia or Alzheimer's. It is intended for those who are still relatively mobile and of sound mind who simply need assistance with the basics and a clean positive atmosphere in which to live.
My 98 year old mother has lived at Crawford House for about 4 months at the time I am writing this. The smaller size of Crawford House is perfect and the move has been absolutely awesome for her. She is not very social, so it is hard to get her out and about. But, the staff is fabulous with her. They never give up encouraging her to go to meals, and no matter what they make sure she has a good meal each and every time, even if she insists on eating alone in her apartment. She has many interactions with the staff throughout each day, and it is obvious to me that they really care about her. I even occasionally get calls from CH staff to discuss ideas and items to improve my mother's day to day life. The attitude at Crawford House is all about the care of the resident, and far less about paperwork, and constant assessment. Bottom line, they do an incredible job of caring for Lois, and I don't worry about her day to day like I have in the past. The facility is quite nice, well maintained and very pleasant in every way. But, it is the staff that really sets Crawford House apart from other, larger, and perhaps better known/marketed facilities in this area.
