We were very impressed with Cedar Crest because of the 24/7 nursing, low staff turnover, activities, housekeeping, laundry set up, friendliness of staff and for what is included in everyday resident care to name a few. It will definitely be on the top of our list if we need to move my mom again.
Everything Is Good
For the few weeks that my loved one was here, everything went well to my knowledge. The staff was great very friendly and professional. They showed kindness and compassion to the residents. The community looked clean and maintained. From what I was told the food was good.
Very nice decor, lots of room for residens to safely roam the halls or settle into a comfy chair, enjoy roaring gas fireplaces in two TV lounges. Plus mom approved good food, lots of activities & outings. They even have her doing daily exercises. That's a first!
I would really like for the staff communication to be better. The staff is friendly and attentive. The community is clean. I did have a chance to try their meals. The breakfast was excellent. My father has engaged in a musical activity and maybe with some time he will start engaging more.
