I Visited This Facility

Plum Landing was smaller and older than other places. The area that it's in seems to be an older area and there was heavily traveled street right in front of the building. The building seemed to be a little older. There was only one unit that had a kitchen. They had a much older population and they didn't seem to have a lot of activities posted. Interestingly, when you walk in the front and speak to the person at the desk, you were on the fifth floor. The building was behind that down a hill. It's not a facility that I would consider. There was a chapel and I saw one area which was part of the dining room. It's used off hours for card playing and things of that sort. The staff member was very courteous and friendly, but they were a little understaffed overall.

The price is affordable but the amenities follow suite. Housekeeping and maintenance are included, a basic dining room with a handful of options per meal, etc. They pride themselves most on the activities. While they have the basics like cards, crafts and Bingo, they pay special attention to changing their larger activities based on the season. For example, in spring they go to the race track and in fall they visit an apple orchard. A favorite pastime is bean bag baseball, which is a combination of bags and baseball. They even have a team that plays others teams in surrounding communities, so it has built a lot of comradery through this activity.
