Customer Reviews

Terrible

Never again. The most horrible experience in one's lifetime.

Lorna Lee

Local Representative

It’s upsetting to read of your poor experience at our community. Please give us a better understanding of what went wrong by calling our Executive Director, Dewiet Miller at [removed] that we might apologize in person, and make things right.

I love this site. Well designed, nice upgrades, Nice location, and great staff. Friendly and helpful. This center offers wonderful opportunities for their residents. One resident even crafted a pillow that was put on display in one of the lobby areas. I want to live there.

Beautiful place. Great location, but on the small side. Getting into will be harder. They have some crazy rules about pets, $1000.00 no refundable plus $60.00 a month...over kill.

First class facility

I live here currently. When you first walk in, you can see that the ceiling is 3 stories high and it looks like the main entrance to a lodge in the mountains. The facility is beautiful and not very old; it feels more like home and not at all like an institution. The staff is very good with people and they have a good sense of humor. There are a lot of activities for the residents to do throughout the day and they have a chapel with a man that volunteers to do services on Sundays. They also have a bus that takes residents to various churches; you can participate if you want to but it isn’t mandatory. The art and furniture are both first class. You can participate as much as you want in the exercise classes or creative activities and the restaurant style food is good with plenty of choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you don’t like the entrees of the day then there are always about 6 other choices available to choose from. I have a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms and 2 walk-in closets and it’s really nice and big. I was able to bring all of my dearest personal items, which was very important to me. They also allow animals like small dogs and cats. I really like it here and would recommend it.

[Removed] is absolutely fabulous

I am very pleased with this property and my loved one loves it here. It is a smaller location, there are less people living here, and there is a nice mixture of independent living and assisted living. Assisted living of course didn’t need much attention and the facility itself didn’t feel “nursing home” ish. It felt more like a community for older adults. They provide many activities for the residents and my loved one got actively involved right away within the first few weeks. She would be exhausted with the amount of activities that she participated in. Now she settled down and limited herself with doing 1-2 activities a day and of course she has her favorites. She loves the happy hour, chair yoga, and the little bus ride that would take them places. My loved one says that the food is fabulous. [Removed] is absolutely fabulous. He took an immense amount of time with us. He brought up questions that I never thought about asking. He is extremely caring. Before my loved one lived about 200mi away from us and our other family members. So we brought other family member in town and [Removed] took the same about time with them. When my loved one came in [Removed] actually came in on his day off to meet her. Every time I’m there, he takes the time to say hello to me and he pretty much closed the deal with us. We care so much for him and what we saw there. I recommend this location to others.

Not Exactly What We Wanted

The tour was fine when I went to see them. However they were not the type of community we wanted. We wanted a place that was newer with bigger apartments.

My father is doing well here. There was one instance that was unfavorable but it was a miscommunication and resolved. They have open communication with me and I am very comfortable with the care. This was definitely a good option for my father.

Not the right "feel" for my mom. Great amenities but my mom would not use all they offer.

Great experience!

I was very impressed with this facility! I have attended multiple networking events hosted at Morningstar and have always been blown away by the staff and the facility. The facility is clean, comfortable and welcoming. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I have personally gotten to know several of the staff members and they are all dedicated to helping people find a place for their loved ones! I highly recommend this location!

Been a blessing

I moved my Mother to Memory Care in December and in these three months her happiness and peace have increased significantly. She is well cared for and feels loved. The daily activities are keeping her involved and stimulating her cognitive ability. I know she is in the right place because she tells me she likes living there and that she is happy. I didn't think that would happen this fast. Our family is at peace with this decision.

Great place for elderly

We had the most wonderful tour with Alex Winningham, Community Relations Assoc. Alex and the front staff alone would make anyone feel accepted and wanted in this community. We met several residents along the way and saw immediately what a difference the right place makes for residents. They were happy, engaged and proud of themselves. The rooms and security were exactly what we were looking for and the ambiance surrounding it all was stunning. Our family would most definitely recommend this establishment to anyone needing an independent, assisted or memory care place to call home.

Wonderful, caring facility!!

My mother has been at Parker Assisted Living for three months now. I have no idea where the negative reviews came from, as we have had nothing but positive experiences in all aspects. My mother was made to feel welcome from day one. (She broke her hip our months ago and will always be on a walker and could no longer live in her house.) The staff was very attentive even to the point of the wait staff in the dining room offering to make her protein shakes to go with meals to help her gain a little weight back. The lady who brings her laundry back always has a sweet compliment/kind words for mom. The staff KNOWS EACH RESIDENT'S NAME! To me that is so important! I had two relatives in two different assisted living facilities and PALM is head over heals on top of the game. My mother just moved to the new building three days ago - awesome state of the art facility! Some of the staff has moved over to the new building - nice to see familiar faces - and even the new staff members knew my mom's name from day one. I was in mom's bedroom unpacking when someone came to take her blood pressure - very caring attitude when she didn't even know anyone else was there! I hope everyone reading these reviews will go and see for themselves as, once again, I have no idea how this wonderful facility could get such negative reviews. My mom absolutely loves it there! (I gave a four star for Value category just because I don't feel any senior living facility is a great value - you just have to find one with all the qualities mentioned above AND that gives you the most bang for your buck.)

Avoid.

The management and care at this facility has taken a huge nosedive since the beginning of 2015. It has gone from a place where we would highly recommend to anyone, to one that we would highly caution. It became apparent that the high staff turnover and the profit motivation were detrimental to our parents' health and well-being. There are a number of new facilities in the area that have come on line, or are about to, that offer much better care and value. This facility is quite attractive, but the care is not.

Do Not Put Your Loved One Here!

If your family member appreciates hotdog soup, having poor managment define the culture and constant change of philosophy this is the place for you.

This is how you honor your elders and praise the Lord?

Parker started out as a wonderful place. It has consistently gone down over the last year. Although the caregivers are good, caring people, they are short staffed and underpaid so they don't stay long. More and more people are day care which makes it hard on day staff which in turn takes away from full time residents. Prices increase so often that it's hard to keep up and of course their money isn't growing. My parent was the victim of several medicine mistakes by new caregivers and there were no consequences. My parent was seldom handed a plate of food that they were able to eat. When I dropped in one day for a visit and found my parent lying in their own feces I decided - enough.

Wonderful people who value seniors

Parker Assisted Living by Morningstar was a wonderful facility for my Mom. She had been living in my home until she had a series of falls that required 6 weeks of rehab. She was not able to regain enough ability for me to continue to care for her at home, Parker Assisted Living was the perfect solution for her and our family. The staff is a wonderful collection of people who value our seniors.

A Place for Mom was a tremendous help in helping us choose just the right care for my Mom. Donna, the Senior Advisor, helped me "keep my own wings level" as I went through the overwhelming process of finding just the right place for my Mom's care.

Very nice place

My memory impaired, 91 year old father goes to Parker Assisted Living for day care three times a week, and he has stayed for week long respite care three times in the past year. The facility is clean, organized and beautiful. The staff is friendly and attentive. There are many planned activities and amenities. Our experience has been very positive. Their day care fees went up 35% at the beginning of 2014, which was a shock, but I don't know how those fees compare to other facilities that offer day care. This facility is located very conveniently to us, Papa enjoys attending and he has become familiar with the staff, residents, and other day care participants. We plan to continue day care and eventually residence for him there.

Very good community

Overall they are pretty excellent, not in every regard but they are getting there. Overall what they offer and provide like the food, the cleanliness of the community, the staff is friendly, respectful, attentive and courteous to residents and guest. They could improve in activities by offering a wider variety. These communities can always improve in the care giver to resident ratio. From what I have observed they currently have about 2 care givers to about 12-15 residents. This can always improve because then the care givers can understand each of the residents and visitor so they are clearer on each individual needs. My opinion towards Parker Assisted Living memory unit is very favorable and we would recommend it to anyone.
