    My mother is in Ponder Creek Estates and she likes it. The facility itself is OK, but no one is on-site 24/7. They're on-site from 7:00 in the morning until 6:00 in the afternoon. The entry doors are locked at 8:00 and you have to have a card to get in, but some doors are left open. It has 3 floors and only 1 elevator. The cleaning staff is helpful and if you ask them for something, they'll get it for you. The dining setup is fine, but the menu is not very good. They have a lot of activities -- at least 3 times every day -- and most of it is provided by the residents themselves.

    My 90 year-old mother is a resident of Ponder Creek. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The food is great 99% of the time. Healthcare services are offered through private agencies at an extra charge. Mom feels safe in Ponder Creek which is top on my list of importance since she suffers from several phobias. I recommend this facility for anyone.
