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

Edencrest was the one we selected because it was a new, clean, and caring facility. I liked the amenities, of which there are lots of interactive entertainment for the residents. The meals and meal service looked nice, which was important to me. They had a space that they use for entertainment, piano playing, and happy hours. We had an issue with a carpet in my mother’s room wherein they took a long time to clean it.

I was not impressed with Edencrest at Riverwoods because of the problems Mom was having; they wanted to put her behind a locked door, and I didn't like that at all. Other than that, I thought the facility was nice. The marketing director was very nice and informative, but all of their memory care was done behind a locked door, and I didn't want to do that to my mom. We went behind the locked doors in memory care and saw around six residents sitting and eating in a very small, smelly room that they were using as a dining hall. The dining area in the assisted living part was clean and nice.

Edencrest at Riverwoods was OK. It was new and just starting, so there weren't very many people in it, and they didn't seem to have many activities. Those things were important to us.
