Customer Reviews

Wonderful place!

The staff has been just fabulous with my husband. My husband really likes the food and enjoys mingling when he eats. The community is just wonderful and I am very satisfied with it. I like that the community is smaller and that lets the residents have more one on one.

Very nice place!

The staff at the Cornerstone are very friendly and well trained. The only problem so far is that we are in once of the cycles where there is a lot of turnovers. I hope it gets better soon. Other than that, the place is kept clean and the meals are nutritious.

I Had No Problems

My husband was here and the care was fine. The staff helped as much as possible. The community was well cleaned and maintained. We had no problems with the community.

Beautiful surroundings. Only one resident was ambulating, not well staffed.

The place was a bit gloomy when you walk where residents dine and sit and wath tv. The bedrooms are more brighter. Also notice an odor in the facility when I walked in.

Lots of information,director very nice. wasn't taken on a tour just a sit and talk.told me all about the facility and the history of how it came to be but it would have been nice to walk around and see the place.
still a possibility !

Clean facility.
Facility is a little dated.
Beautiful rural setting.

A place for mom and Cornerstone living

I have had a great service through a place for mom. Donna and others helped me so much not just with finding a place but helping me emotionally. It was the hardest thing to do was to put my mom in a memory care facility. I will never forget about all the help and feelings of guilt that I had. They helped me so that I could move to the next part which is being able to take care of my mother. Even though she is in a facility Cornerstone it is a bit far but it's far from being anything close to hospital. It is a very comfortable place and the staff is wonderful. I have never been there without seeing all the staff assisting the residents in any way possible. Both places have been extremely helpful in the beginning of this disease which is a nightmare. But with help I was able to get through some things but I had to do my share. I need to let my mother know that I am there for her and that I will always be there for her like she was there for me. Thanks so much to, A place for mom and Cornerstone living. From Thomas Crocker

Communication in Question

Administrator provided business card with e-mail address. After placing loved one in Cornerstone was told to wait a week or two before visiting. Phoned each week and spoke to nurses. Administrator was not available, but did return phone call around end of week two and was told not to visit for another two weeks.

Used the e-mail address on the business card to ask questions. Almost two weeks went by and no answer. Had to send repeat request. Finally received response. Was told the Administrator does not normally use the e-mail address listed on the business card.

Long time doctor of patient determined a medicine was no longer effective. Cornerstone's doctor put patient back on the expensive medicine. Told Administrator about long time doctor's evaluation. Response was this is what the doctor is doing. Administrator did not offer to pass on the information or offer to check into it.

The communication is an issue with Cornerstone Living.

I just didn't feel like the value was there for this community.

Cornerstone There are only four activities each day, one is a Bible Verse every day, at 11 a.m, and the other activity is at 7 p.m., leaving only 2 other activities during the day, and they look like "busy work", not different things to keep it interesting. There's not a lot of variety in the activities, and no field trips are listed. On Sundays there is TV church in addition to Bible Verse, so they are heavy on religion. Three days of the week "Continental Breakfast" is served instead of a cooked breakfast. There are only 3 "Alternative Meal" choices for lunch and dinner, one of which is "previous day's meal, if available". The "alternative meal" choices are a meat sandwich or a PB&J sandwich. A four-page financial document must be completed with the application, requiring detailed information about all of your assets and expenses. I really didn't like that. Escort service to medical appointments is $15.00 an hour. All of the other facilities I looked at included transportation as one of the amenities. They had a special when I was touring that was very reasonable, but I just didn't feel like the value was there for this community. This wasn't in a great location for us either so we didn't pursue it.

I am the web designer from the Corner...

I am the web designer from the Cornerstone Living Website. I had to go up to the facility, when I was hired to build the website. I was pleased to see the homelike senior care home atmosphere. I had experienced my parents being in both Country Meadows & Manor Care, which are large commercial facilities. My parents are gone now, My Mom 5-years and my Dad 10-years. I wish that I would have had a place like Cornerstone Living back when I had to experience the Senior Care experience. Even though it would have been a further drive from my home, I would have made this choice to have my parents in this Senior Memory Care home. Take the tour today to see the difference. My experience with both Manor Care and Country Meadows was a nightmare!!! What I experienced in Country Meadows was my mother being so heavily medicated that within 2 weeks she was in St Luke's hospital in Kidney failure. After that bout of care, I moved her to Manor care. Warned the staff and the doctors NOT to over-medicate my Mom, it worked for a few years but in the end, because of the lack of staff, they sent my Mom to Sacred Heart Hospital because of an incident with another resident. Within 2-weeks of being admitted to the Sacred Heart 4th floor ward, my Mom lost 27 pounds became wheel chair bound. I could no longer take my Mom out 2 - 3 times a week nor could I bring her home for the entire day on Holidays. Manor Care ruined what life quality she had left. All I could do at that point was visit my Mom and try to take her for walks in her wheelchair, try to feed her lunch and eventually watch her become bed ridden and slowly die a shell of the person that she once was. PLEASE take the time to tour Cornerstone Living, a smaller community of Memory Care specialists, where you Loved One can have more of a personal one on one care from the caring staff. Less residents means more personalized care ... your Loved One is not just a numbered file ... your Loved one retains their own existence as a person NOT a number who falls through the cracks like they do in the large commercialized senior homes! From one who has been there and KNOWS!!! I loved the atmosphere at [removed].
