I Visited This Community
This is located in a nice area in the middle of Portland, upon driving up the outside was nice and ground well-kept. My first impression when walking in was the smell I instantly got an ammonia smell faint as it was it was there a little unsettling. The residents were very quiet and not a lot of activity was happening. The facility itself was clean and well-kept. The staff was friendly and welcoming answered any questions I had, showed me around. Downside was the staff didn’t interact with the residents unless needed to this is an area that needs improving. The dining area was old school with checkered flooring that of a 1950’s diner it was rather cool, it was filled with residents and used to converse and hang-out I thought it was very nice. The dining area was elegant, I didn’t eat at the facility but the menu had a good selection and had a good sized menu for those with special need diets way to go! There was a room with a pool table room that was nice. The activity calendar had a good selection of activities but it was all repetitive, spoke with some of the ladies and bingo seemed to be a favorite among the residents. The outdoor areas were nice they had ample seating and overlooking a pond. Plenty of areas to walk outside. The room I saw was good sized and very nice. The price is in the middle for this facility and I just don’t see the offerings to go with the cost a tad on the high side. They do have a good safety plan for the residents including in room emergency call systems and room checks. Overall this is a good facility I get the feeling of a nursing home more than anything, not a bad thing the facility is clean not dingy, I just didn’t see the active movement of the residents when I visited and yes the staff great as they were just didn’t interact with residents as I would of thought they should. For the price there needs to be improvement in a few areas.
