I Visited This Facility
Governor's Glen was so-so. I had an appointment, but the gentleman was meeting with someone else, so I walked around with one of his assistants. He did apologize and call me several days later, but I decided that it wasn't the place I was looking for. It didn't have a good vibe, although what I saw overall was OK, and I didn't see anything that stood out. The receptionist greeted me and showed me a few places and some rooms. They were in the process of doing some renovation. The room was OK, but it was empty and felt cold. The size of the single room was comparable to other places. The people were very friendly and nice.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
Governors Glen was closer to my home and they're able to take care of his dementia. Even if he gets to the point where he needs to go into hospice care, they'll still let him stay there and hospice will take over from there. He really has enjoyed it and we have no complaints. They're very welcoming and I can come in whenever I want. It's pretty good and they make sure his clothes are clean, give him his medication, and make sure he's bathed. He's happy. He likes the food and says it's good. They cook the food and there's nothing brought in on a tray, so they eat off of a regular plate. He can go outside and we don't have to worry about him wandering in the street because the place is a maze. The path leads him right back into the facility so he can't get lost.
