I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

The Russ Place was an absolute godsend! My father was having bypass surgery and needed a "respite" room for a few weeks to recover as he lives by himself out in the country and my brother and I live in a different state. Before his surgery, we met with Michelle and Angel who are phenomenal ladies where it's obvious that caring for people is their passion. * My brother and I were extremely impressed with the facility as well as by the entire staff who were all friendly and professional. The Russ Place even provided a welcome sign for my dad upon his arrival. * It was conveyed that social events are held quite often for residents to feel that they are part of a community. My dad was invited to attend the big fish fry that was coming up. * For a few days after being released from the hospital, my dad could not make it to the dining room for meals so the staff brought him his meals. Even though my brother and I did not eat in the dining room as guest, we saw the meals that were provided to my dad and it all looked delicious. * They have someone on the premises 24/7 in case of an emergency. The residents have pull strings in the rooms and can wear a pendant in order to call the person on duty. The care they showed my dad was wonderful - they had someone remove my dad's surgery stockings before he went to bed and put them back on for him in the morning. * The facility is clean and has amenities such as a salon for haircuts, computers, and a beautiful enclosed patio for those who want to soak up some sun especially after being in a hospital room for over a week. My dad mentioned that he was able to get a haircut at the hair place which made him feel better. They have a laundry room on the premises and someone who will wash/dry clothes as needed - even when it's not laundry day. :) They have someone to come in and clean the residents room on a weekly basis. * The price was reasonable and definitely well worth it. I cannot stress how much of a blessing the Russ Place was to us during our time of need and I would recommend their facility to anyone!
