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

My grandmother is doing very well in Deer Meadows. It's a nice and clean place, the food is good, and her apartment is very nice. The place is also safe and handicapped-accessible, which is good considering that most senior places in this area are not. She still has her freedom, but they always keep an eye out for her. They have bingo, different games, exercise classes in the mornings, trips to the local mall, and church on Sundays. The staff is nice and seems to know her as a person, not just some random woman walking the halls. One of the administrators walked by and called her by her name which is nice. The place doesn't feel like a facility when you walk in, and after being in different facilities, I feel that Deer Meadows looks homier. It's decorated very nice, and the hallway where she lives looks more like a hotel than an assisted living apartment. I feel like we got the best bang for our buck there compared to other places.

I Visited This Facility

Deer Meadows was a nice place, but it was like an old Baptist home and looked institutionalized. It's near Nazareth Hospital. The rooms were OK, but they were smaller than what my brother-in-law has now.
