    Detailed Information

    The Haven at Springwood, York PA

    The Haven at Springwood is a premier senior living community in York, PA. The residence provides everything a person needs to enjoy active and healthy retirement living. It offers assisted living services and memory care programs, each staffed twenty-four hours a day for maximum peace of mind. 

    A typical assisted living resident at the Haven at Springwood needs help with two or three activities of daily living. They live in one of the community’s studio or suite-style apartments, where caregivers assist them each day. Incoming residents can choose from one of four senior housing floor plans, each including: 

    • Private bathrooms 

    • Wheelchair accessible showers 

    • Closet space 

    • Spacious living room/bedroom combination 

    • Semi-private rooms, for cohabiting residents 

    Residents may live alone, with their spouse, or with a roommate. The community offers companion suites as a money-saving solution for incoming residents, where two compatible people share one apartment. They share the same bathrooms and living areas, and have semi-private rooms for themselves.  

    Affordability aside, many older adults prefer cohabiting because living in a private suite can be lonely. Roommates give residents constant social interaction, improving their brain vitality and their day-to-day mood.   

    The memory care community offers a unique spin on residential living. It offers structured programs and activities to nurture residents with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, creating a soothing and safe environment for them to thrive. Memory care residents have access to the same personal care services and amenities as assisted living, including: 

    • Medication management 

    • Assistance with activities of daily living 

    • Emergency call systems 

    • Housekeeping 

    • Laundry and linen services 

    • Nutritious meals, served three times daily

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Q: How do I know if the Haven at Springwood is right for me? 

    Each person is different, and the senior care programs that will help one individual may not help another. The Haven at Springwood is a community-based residential care facility and is distinctly different than a nursing home. Before applying, prospective residents and their families can ask themselves a few questions to see if an assisted living community or personal care facility like the Haven at Springwood is a viable option:

    • Can the person get around on their own? 

    • Does the person need medical attention on an ongoing basis? 

    • Does the person have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia? 

    • Does the person require rehabilitation? 

    A person must be ambulatory to live at the Haven at Springwood. Nursing homes provide safer, more secure environments for bedridden individuals and are more suitable than assisted living centers. 

    The same goes for individuals who require ongoing medical attention. Assisted living services are not tailored for people with chronic injury or illness, and they are not a suitable alternative to skilled nursing facilities in such cases. The Haven at Springwood's staff can provide medication management, but may not assist with injections, colostomy maintenance, and other skilled nursing services. 

    However, the community offers an exceptional short-term rehabilitation program. Their rehab services include speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy for up to 100 days. To learn more about the community’s rehabilitation programs, make an inquiry above for detailed information. 

    The best way to find out if the Haven at Springwood is a suitable senior care option is to tour the community. Schedule a tour above to see the residence in-person, sample their meals, and speak to their staff about their residential living. The staff give knowledgeable insight and help prospective residents learn if the Haven at Springwood is the right choice for them. 

    Q: How do I know if myself or my family member needs memory support? 

    Memory support services (also known as dementia care) help older adults with Alzheimer's disease and dementia live their best lives. The dementia care unit provides medication management and housekeeping like independent living and assisted living, with additional services tailored for individuals with memory loss. 

    Each person who applies to the Haven at Springwood must speak with a care adviser prior to admission to determine their level of care. The care adviser uses a pre-admission assessment to place the person into the right program. If the pre-admission assessment shows symptoms of memory loss or Alzheimer's disease that require dementia care, the community may recommend they live in the memory support community.  

    Q: Does the Haven at Springwood offer short-term care programs? 

    The Haven at Springwood offers respite care for non-residents up to 30 days and short-term rehabilitation services for up to 100 days. To learn more about the community’s respite care and rehabilitation programs, make an inquiry above for detailed information.   

    Q: How much does the Haven at Springwood cost? 

    It varies. Each person pays a base rental fee that covers the cost of their apartment, basic housekeeping, and their meals. The community assesses additional fees for add-on services, like rehabilitation. 

    The community’s price range varies by floor plan and by each person’s care requirements. Prospective residents can use the “Get Pricing” tool above to get a personalized cost estimate, according to their care needs and preferred floor plan.  

    Q: Is the Haven at Springwood pet-friendly? 

    Residents may have one small pet, within the community’s guidelines. Most small cats and dogs are approved if they are quiet, clean, and well-behaved. Prospective residents should make an inquiry with the community, describing their pet in-detail to find out if it falls within their guidelines. Service dogs of all sizes and breeds are welcome at the Haven at Springwood, in accordance with the ADA’s requirements. 

    Q: How does retirement living at the Haven at Springwood compare to other personal care homes in York, PA? 

    Each retirement living community is unique. The Haven at Springwood's staff, spacious assisted living units, and timeless barn-style restaurant make it stand out from the crowd as one of the area's most highly-reviewed communities. 

    According to customer reviews, the Haven at Springwood is a top assisted living community in Pennsylvania. It is ranked in the top 30% of assisted living communities in the state, and residents say the premises is clean, beautiful, and inviting from the moment they walk in.   

    The Haven at Springwood's pet friendly policy is a major attraction for some older adults. Many personal care homes do not allow pets on-site, making the Haven at Springwood a clear choice for people who want to keep their pets when they move into a personal care facility. 

    Scheduling a tour of the facility is the best way for someone to get a glimpse of life as a Haven at Springwood resident. Seeing the facility in-person can help families compare it to other senior living communities in the vicinity. Tours include:

    Brittany was a great person to work with. Even though my aunt is hard headed and would not set up residencey in the Haven, Brittany understood the situation and handled it with grace and professionalism. If and when I can convince my aunt to change her mind, I will be calling Brittany! Thank you!

    They love their apartment. The management staff are great and very responsive. They like the food. They always say how good it is. Everybody is nice and very respectful. They have a wide variety of activities. The place is always clean, and everything is in working order. The nurses are great there. They are easy to talk to and call me if they have a question.

    I am an attorney and represent elders in communities all over. Unbiasedly, I can say that this is one of the better communities that I have had to deal with. He loves this place and doesn't want to leave. That is a huge testament to me because he has been at other places before and hated them. The price is great here, and this community is just as good as places that cost $11,000 to $12,000. The management and staff here are great.

    From what I have seen the menu looks pretty decent to me, the activities are well planned and her laundry is always taken care of very well. The building is well taken care of, especially the outside. Whenever there was a problem the caregivers took care of it. She is happy and I am happy so that is all that matters.

    My mom just loves the dining. She really likes their food and the service is great. The activities are great for my mother. She gets involved in them so much. The housekeepers are very good. Mom has always been happy with them too. We have never had any problems with maintenance and in a short time they take care of issues that she might have. When we were looking around every place we looked at we compared to the Haven because the Haven had so much.

    Everything in her room is always clean and in place and her laundry is clean regularly and put away. Maintenance is wonderful, they are very helpful and prompt. I've had few needs but when I do the management is prompt to take care of things. I think the care givers have been excellent. I would say it's a good value for what she gets.

    Compared to other places, I am more than satisfied with the price right now and the living space for my mother is excellent. The healthcare staff is doing super and they treat her like family, so she appreciates they're all doing for her. The building is very clean and the new sign is definitely a plus. Overall, transportation is very good, the management team is excellent and I am always informed, so I couldn't ask for better.

    We had been looking for a change from where she was and went to a number of different places around the area and settled on the Haven because of the friendliness of the place, the staff they had there that we met, how long the staff had been there and those types of things. The kitchen and dining room are very well organized and super clean, I was just amazed at how clean the kitchen was. Some of the people had been there for eight, nine and ten years. She's already gone out on the bus to a country ride they had and to the stores. She's already engaged in these things which seems to be very very good for her. They made us feel at home.

    I think everybody has been amazing. I think the dining is great and she is happy with the meals, so the variety is fine. It's actually a larger variety than she'd have if she lived home alone, so the whole experience has been excellent. I am glad they have so many things to keep her busy daily.

    My brother and I went around and saw a bunch of other places and then we decided the Haven was the best fit for her. Everybody in management has been so helpful and answered all of our questions. My mom always says she gets plenty of food, she seems very satisfied with the dining. I think they have wonderful trips, they go to Red Lobster, it's a very good variety. The whole place is beautiful, it's light, bright and airy, it's nice and clean, it smells good, it's nice. The healthcare staff is wonderful. I'm just extremely happy and my mind is at ease knowing that she's safe and very well taken care of there.

    The community always goes above and beyond, so she is very happy there. Management is always out talking to us, answer any questions we have and they're very friendly, so they don't keep anything in the shadows. The building looks brand new and my grandmother's room has been pretty good. I absolutely adore the barn that has been converted into a dining room because it's beautiful, so looks alone, it's great. The food is a lot better than a lot of places I have been to, even restaurants, and although I don't know a lot about the menu because I have only ate there a few times, she says there is a lot of choices.

    We shopped around a lot before Haven at Springwood when looking for a place for our mother, but my family was happier with Haven than any other place in the county. We have had a good relationship with management and whenever we've had problems, we were able to work things out. I tell people if they're looking, to not miss out on the Haven because whatever problems or situations you may find anywhere else, you won't find them in Haven at Springwood.

Housekeeping does her laundry and that is fine. The cleaning is exccellent and the maintenance is good. The care is fine. When there is a problem, we get a call from the caregivers.

    My aunt was at another place in the area but it was too large. We were suggested to move her to a smaller community where it would be less confusing for her so we chose this community. My family all thinks that it is a very nice place. It is family oriented and only has about 100 residents. My aunt has a nice corner unit and we were able to bring some of her furniture in to make it feel homey. Everything she needs is on one floor which makes it easy for her. Everybody at this community has been friendly since the beginning. Brandy, in management, went above and beyond and took us on a tour. She introduced us to the different people who would be coming in and out of mom's room. When we ate there, the food was good. We enjoy the smaller tables because it will be easier for her to make friends. Housekeeping comes in and does her laundry and cleans her room every Thursday. Maintenance has been helpful. We changed her TV and needed to get her a universal remote. They called me to let me know it was in and up and running. When she first moved in she was grumpy with me. As a result, I called Brandy and the nursing staff to see how she was treating the staff there. She hasn't caused any problems and she hasn't complained to me about the staff. She is doing very well at this community.

    It's the only place my mom talked about going, she knew some people from our church who are residents there and it was close to her house. Everything just worked out perfect, Brandi just made it so easy for us. She's playing bingo which is shocking to me that she's doing stuff like that, it looks really good from what I've seen on the daily itinerary. She goes to the church services and I know she listened to a piano concert recently and really enjoyed it. The building seems very well maintained to me and my mom loves the healthcare staff. She talks very highly of all the nursing aides that come in, I know she feels very safe.

    Management was just awesome. When I needed to put my mom in there, Brandy and Sheila were very helpful, they answered tons of questions. If I needed something I would just call up, leave a message and they'd get back to me the same day. Everyone in healthcare that I dealt with was very knowledgeable, very helpful if I asked for something or had a question, they were able to help me right away. They had a lot of activities going on and would always include my mother. They were very good and helpful with the activities and made sure they included the residents that could join in. The cost seemed reasonable to me considering everything she needed. There was someone there cooking, cleaning and doing her laundry

    My mother and I toured the facility and it was aesthetically beautiful, that was the first draw. The second draw was that everybody was very friendly, answered questions straightforward and honest; they were just very helpful to us. Management has been very respectful and very accessible, we had an issue and it was dealt with immediately. My mother seems to like the food and the dining room is beautiful. There are a lot of activities and there's a very nice variety, they're reaching a diverse group of people. The transportation service driver was very friendly and exceptionally helpful. The room has always been very clean and the clothes have been washed and the bed has been changed, the housekeeping staff is wonderful, they're very friendly.

    I think it is worth it for me to have my mom there. Mom's room is very nice. Every room has a window which I think is nice. They seem to be getting nice meals. The cook encourages residents to let them know things they like and even asked for their recipes if they would like to share them. It feels more like a restaurant. The activities are fun and my mother likes making things and doing the crafts. They have multiple activities a day. I am pleased with the service she receives from housekeeping and maintenance. The caregivers are very consciences, very alert to situations when they start instead of waiting until they become serious. I get calls from them to let me know when mom has been sleeping more than normal and I may want to check on her. They tell me when she has a bad night�s sleep. I am very well kept up with things. They are very loving and affectionate with mom and that is so nice to see. They are treated like family down there. There is a good staff to resident ratio at one to six at night.

    For the price I think we are getting the best care because we are paying for the best care. My sister is comfortable and happy there and thinks it is home now. The management staff is very good. They are always very good at helping me out and doing what I ask and things. They know where to get the answer in an instant if they don't know it right off. Everything I have seen is always clean and nice. Very seldom when I go in the bed isn't made or anything is out of place. Everything is clean and nice, bathroom and everything. I have no comments of anything wrong with laundry. They are just great. Whenever we need a light bulb changed I just mention it and it is done. Everything outside and around the place is nice. I have no complaints about the maintenance. The nurses all seem to be on top of everything. I don't know anything else they could do. I know of no wrongdoings or mistakes.

    The management is very good. They have been very nice and supportive as well especially, the director of nursing Cora. She has been very personable and has taken the time to see my mother when she is in a rehab situation. She talks to my mom and inspires her a bit. Overall, the activities are very good. Not only is her room kept nicely but the lady that does the housekeeping is very nice to my mother and vice versa. It seems like they have kind of a friendly relationship. The laundry is very good. Overall, my mom and I have been pleased with all of the associates that help her. I think they are very helpful and friendly and kind.

    It was a place we could give Mom a better quality of life for a period of time. The management team was helpful and the dining service was good to fix her soup and sandwiches since Mom was a picky eater. She found plenty things to do for entertainment there. The care there was very good. She was the best she had been in five to six years.

    My aunt has never said she wanted out of Haven at Springwood, so she must be happy with it. She is putting on weight and when she does take part in activities, she is very well pleased with them. I have never walked into that place where I saw anything out of place whether it'd be dirt, water or anything laying on the floor, so I am satisfied with the consistency of service at the community. From what I see, I don't see things laying around or light bulbs out, so everything that I know about works, which is a plus and when she does use transportation, she is always happy about it, telling me all about it. With regards to her care, I worked at Colonial Manor as a driver where I took patients to Doctor's appointments, so I saw how that went and this is far above that. Overall, it's been a good experience for her.

    We're extremely happy with placing my mother there, they've been so friendly, helpful and attentive to each and every resident, and it�s been wonderful. The dining is excellent, I know they make desserts, they have fun making them together, there's always a nice menu on the wall that I see when I go in there, it looks great. I really enjoy the activities they have, they really do a lot for mom, and she�s having fun and interacting with others. She does more now in there than she ever did, she went bowling for the first time ever in her life the other week. She loves the country rides, she loves the bus driver.

    It's a beautiful facility and everything seems to be going pretty good, my mom likes where she's at. The healthcare staff answer the call button in a timely manner, she says they're there within like five minutes. I had Thanksgiving dinner there and I was pretty happy with it, my mom is getting kind of used to the things there and doesn't seem to have any complaints about anything. Everything seems to be going pretty good, she likes where she's at.

    My dad moved to this community because I was impressed with the residents themselves and their reaction to being there. They seemed happy and some of them even reached out to me to say this is a nice place. They seemed content and taken care of. It seemed like a friendly place and a place where he would be happy. I think I am getting a good value compared to the other places. I just visited with him this week and it seems like he likes to park himself by the front door. I was a little concerned at first, so I asked the receptionist if he tried to high tail it out. She told me that no they keep a close watch on the residents. I really appreciated that they watched him closely. His needs there are being taken care of. I am not concerned that he will get lost or fall and break something. The food portions are big and good. The food selection seems to be good. The staff has been very accommodating. If I mention to them that my dad isn't supposed to have something, they fix it. They are prompt and friendly. The selection of activities is good. I ask him if he is going to things and people are taking him to some activities. There are appropriate and good activities. When I go to his room it seems clean. It is vacuumed and doesn't smell bad. Someone is doing his laundry and it is put away for him which I appreciate. It is all getting done. He said that he had someone come because there was a problem with his toilet and that was resolved. Maintenance is responsive. The nurse has been attentive to my questions and concerns about his medication, the transfer of his medication and changes in his medication. Whoever is making sure that his daily cleanliness is being attended to is doing a good job. He gets a rash if he isn't washed frequently and it is being done properly. It has all been very good. The residents continue to seem happy and they talk to me and him when we are in the halls. I think that shows that they are well adjusted and being well cared for.

    I think the prices at Haven at Springwood are good. It's still cheaper than other places, the community itself is nicer than other places and my mother's apartment is perfect. The front desk is always very nice when I sign in, sign her out or if I need anything. The activities are great, the activity staff is so friendly and they go out of their way to do anything, so they're just the nicest people. My mom goes to devotion every day; she does Bingo and gets her nails done so she participates. Housekeeping is really attentive towards her and they do stuff for her that is unnecessary. The building is beautiful, always well-kept and if you ask maintenance to do something, they do it. Regarding her care, all of the girls are just so kind. They're so attentive and they know when she is out of medications, so everyone there goes out of their way for all of the residents. There is always someone around and if they don't know something, they'll go and find out. Overall, everyone is very nice and the whole atmosphere is very wonderful, so I really have nothing bad to say about the community. She truly loves it there and I think it was the best move for us.

The activities my mom has participated in have been nice and the calendar of activites looks wonderful. Everything has been perfect with housekeeping. I cannot say enough good things about it. Maintenance had an issue with flooding in the apartment above my mom's. They were right on the spot and came in immediately to clean up and scrub the carpets. The few times my mom has had to use the transportation, they were on time and safe. The caregivers have been great. It has been very good for my mom and the staff could not be any nicer.

It's clean, it doesn�t smell, and they do a good job. They take care of her laundry. The caregivers are courteous, polite, they keep track of her meds, and they contact us if there is any issue, so we're happy with that. Maintenance is very competent and does a good job.

    One of my mom's buddies at the table tells us that she eats everything on her plate, so she loves the food and she eats well. In fact, we may be talking to the Doctor about things because she is putting on weight. She loves the activities and she does quite a few things. She loves the arts & crafts or they'll setup a movie to watch and she watches them with residents. She always liked watching animal movies with her grandchildren, so she loves that. Anytime she has an issue, someone has always helped her and they tell her they don't want her to clean stuff up and instead to tell them to clean it up. Transportation has been good with it and I haven't had any problems. All in all, we are happy to have her there.

My father really hasn't had much trouble with his bathroom or anything, so I do think they keep after things pretty well. I think that the Health Director Cora is phenominal. She is knowledgeable, knows about elderly people, takes charge and we speak once a week, so she really is very good. All in all I think the value for the services and accomodations is good.

    I chose The Haven at Springwood because it was reasonably priced, it was close to the hospital and it didn't feel as though it was an institution or hospital it seemed more of a place my sister could make her home. She's going on a field trip this week and I know she's been painting, there are pianos around and she's a musician, she's got her guitars and they've talked about practicing and performing. The caretakers are very good with informing us of anything going on. They do a great job with her room and they pick up her laundry before she even realizes it's gone and already done. We have a sense of relief because she's in a place where she can't harm herself.

They are doing exercising, bingo and they had a mass the other day. They seem to stay fairly active. The building is very nice and I haven't seen anything that would tell me it's not being kept up. From everything that I see regarding the care staff, I am very satisfied. People speak all the time and just yesterday the girl coming in for her night shift came to check on my parents.

Service with the dining staff is very good. She has told me on many occasions that she's very glad she's there. If there's ever a problem or a request I know who I can go to and it's taken care of. Sheila, who is basically the top person there, is very easy to talk to. They really work hard there to help her out.

    My sister was in a dementia care unit in Florida & was transferred here in August 2019. Sheila the Administrator, and Marlo worked with me placing my sister & went above & beyond to help. From the moment we arrived we were so overwhelmed with the support given . It was a long drive with my sister from Florida & we arrived on a Sunday night around 8:30 pm. Sheila drove down to help with the transition & all the nurses were there to greet my sister including all the patients!! They made my sister feel like she belonged from the start! I would highly recommend The Beacon memory care unit . The staff & all the nurses & caregivers have huge hearts & empathy, which I consider rare! I ask my sister Kathy if she is happy here & she always replies “Yes!” with a smile ❤️

    I cannot say enough good things about the Haven at Springwood. The type of work I do affords me the opportunity to interact with multiple senior care facilities in both Pennsylvania and Maryland. Of all the facilities that I have dealt with, the Haven ranks at the very top. The administration, the nursing and general care staff are all superb, the facility is warm, home like and clean. Activities are plentiful for the residents. It gives one the feeling of a home rather than an institution. The best proof of this is when my loved one was in the dining area one evening and out of nowhere said to me, “ I want you to promise that I can stay here as long as I can because this is home to me” He is still there and I will keep that promise

    From the moment we spoke, I knew the Haven at Springwood approached aging from a whole new perspective that is not only refreshing but critically insightful to preserving one's dignity and sense of self-worth. By refusing to segregate people based on their failing memories in a secured memory care wing, thereby calling attention to what your loved one is already painfully aware of, Springwood has achieved something remarkable by choosing instead to provide freedom within a safe, yet secure, environment. Residents are "taught" to look out for and help each other, which has a positive trickle- down effect, regardless of physical disability and/or stage of dementia. Staff and residents alike were warm and welcoming to my mother when she arrived at the end of January and what could have been a traumatic move has turned out to be a warm and nurturing environment where we have all seen significant improvement in her overall well-being. Unlike Springwood, many assisted living facilities take the stance that once you receive a diagnosis of dementia you automatically get assigned to a secured memory care unit and are not given an opportunity to see how you would do in the general population. This kind of an environment was not helpful to my mother who valued her independence and only exaggerated her frustrated emotions and behaviors, given that she was keenly aware that her memory was failing. It is unfortunate that this inflexibility turns out to be prevalent throughout many of the facilities we visited in our attempt to move our mother closer to where my brother and I live, revealing an insensitivity and lack of a true understanding of the frustration these people feel - until we met Marlo Sweigert at Springwood. Not only does she believe strongly in capitalizing on people's strengths rather than their weaknesses but she will go to bat for your loved one to give them a chance to once again look forward to each day - rather than feeling "what's the point". My Mom's apartment is bright, warm and inviting with a wonderful picture window view of a farmer's field. Hallways are inviting with small comfortable gathering nooks and a large library room on each floor. Likewise, the dining room is amazing - high ceilings, wood beams and a massive stone fireplace at one end - reminiscent of a ski lodge. She has a wonderful table mate who has been helpful in getting my Mom to come out of her shell. My Mom, who always used to say her favorite thing to do was to make reservations for dinner, thinks it is a wonderful restaurant and loves the fact she can choose the next day's lunch and dinner from a small printed menu. Activities are also plentiful for those who wish to avail themselves of them, including a movie theater, and a bistro for a mid-afternoon snack. There is absolutely no question as to why Springwood has achieved a perfect score from the State- something very hard to do- their whole approach to aging thrives on dignity and respect for all. It is clear from the moment you walk through the door that there is a healthy vibe between those who not only live there but with those who also work there.

    My in laws were both residents at the Haven. My father in law was only there for 4 days before he passed away. My mother in law has dementia and upon our request was moved from a double room to a single room. The staff was very supportive of her move. She received great care and attention. She really liked the activities and the staff. Her dementia has progressed so now she is in the Memory Care Unit and seems very content in this setting. The staff took care of her entire move to this unit. The staff is wonderful in this Unit and she enjoys the activities and the food. The Haven has a very bright and welcoming lobby and the rooms are a good nice size. We had checked out several other assisted living facilities in the area and this one was superior to the others.

    Management is quick to respond to phone calls and concerns. If they do not know something right away they will find it out and get back to me. The activities my mom has participated in have been nice and the calendar of activites looks wonderful. Everything has been perfect with housekeeping. I cannot say enough good things about it. Maintenance had an issue with flooding in the apartment above my mom's. They were right on the spot and came in immediately to clean up and scrub the carpets. The few times my mom has had to use the transportation, they were on time and safe. The caregivers have been great. It has been very good for my mom and the staff could not be any nicer.

    The management team that I have met while my dad was living here are all very nice and respectful. The care team was accessible and responsive to his needs and the apartments and community are maintained very well.

    My mother-in-law has been there for three and a half years, and my aunt also lived there. My mother-in-law is happy with the food, menu variety, and the dining staff is courteous. She likes the activities very much. Housekeeping is good, they're very gentle. The caregivers are also good, she is safe and comfortable. I would recommend it.

    I do think it's a fair value for the services she's receiving. My mom likes the dining room and the food. The food is hot, and she has someone to talk to. It seems to be decent variety, decent food. They have plenty of activities. She goes to the religious service and the nail salon. Housekeeping does do a good job. It's clean, it doesn’t smell, and they do a good job. They take care of her laundry. The caregivers are courteous, polite, they keep track of her meds, and they contact us if there is any issue, so we're happy with that. Maintenance is very competent and does a good job. We're pretty happy with the place.

    One of my mom's buddies at the table tells us that she eats everything on her plate, so she loves the food and she eats well. In fact, we may be talking to the Doctor about things because she is putting on weight. She loves the activities and she does quite a few things. She loves the arts & crafts or they'll setup a movie to watch and she watches them with residents. She always liked watching animal movies with her grandchildren, so she loves that. Anytime she has an issue, someone has always helped her and they tell her they don't want her to clean stuff up and instead to tell them to clean it up. Transportation has been good with it and I haven't had any problems. All in all, we are happy to have her there.

    I think the place is really pretty clean. When you walk in, you get the feeling that they really do pay attention to cleanliness in terms of the hallways and the rooms. My father really hasn't had much trouble with his bathroom or anything, so I do think they keep after things pretty well. I think that the Health Director Cora is phenominal. She is knowledgeable, knows about elderly people, takes charge and we speak once a week, so she really is very good. All in all I think the value for the services and accomodations is good.

    I chose The Haven at Springwood because it was reasonably priced, it was close to the hospital and it didn't feel as though it was an institution or hospital it seemed more of a place my sister could make her home. She's going on a field trip this week and I know she's been painting, there are pianos around and she's a musician, she's got her guitars and they've talked about practicing and performing. The caretakers are very good with informing us of anything going on. They do a great job with her room and they pick up her laundry before she even realizes it's gone and already done. We have a sense of relief because she's in a place where she can't harm herself.

    The maintenance man was there the day we moved in and he was great. I think the food is well prepared and looks good. The bathrooms compared to other places I looked at are very nice and spacious. The building itself is great and has wide hallways and looked to be a pleasant place to live, which is one of the main reasons I chose it for my mom.

    My mom has been at the community for a little over three years now. The building itself looks pretty good. Although she is not one to participate in the activities, I think there is a good variety for her to choose from. I think the care staff is generally good. Overall the stay has been good.

    I think my mother-in-law's nurses are exceptional. If she has any problems, somebody is always there to address it. If something happens I get a phone call right away. Service with the dining staff is very good. She has told me on many occasions that she's very glad she's there. If there's ever a problem or a request I know who I can go to and it's taken care of. Sheila, who is basically the top person there, is very easy to talk to. They really work hard there to help her out.

    My brother did the research and the place put both of us close to mom and dad. The people there are just super, the room is very nice and there were several other reasons for moving them in. They are doing exercising, bingo and they had a mass the other day. They seem to stay fairly active. The building is very nice and I haven't seen anything that would tell me it's not being kept up. From everything that I see regarding the care staff, I am very satisfied. People speak all the time and just yesterday the girl coming in for her night shift came to check on my parents.

    Management and the activities are wonderful. The dining staff is also great. The healthcare staff is very good. They have great personalities and if you push the button, they come right away and help you with your problem. I haven't needed any maintenance, but they seem to be working all the time. I like it here very much.

    My mother feels very safe. The pricing is pretty on the dot. They do a lot for her. She is very convenient to the cafeteria and the common room. Her bathroom is two times bigger than she needs. She does a lot of the Bingo type things, which is good. She has it very good there.

    The management staff is very good and very involved. They were very helpful getting me oriented and helping my mom get settled in. They were compassionate and reassuring. Sheila is amazing. The caretakers are very caring and treat the residents very well. It feels very much like family in there. They are very prompt on calling me about any changes or notifying me before they contact her doctor. I don't have to worry about anything slipping through the cracks. I'm very happy with them. They're starting to have more family involved events around the holidays, and that's very nice. We enjoy that.

    It looks like a place I'd like to live. I would recommend it in a heartbeat. The little interaction I've had to have with the management has been great. The incoming process was good. They do a really good job of hiring good people. They are like a family there. She is always very happy, and she is never hungry. She is eating very well and enjoying her meals. The activities people are good. They are getting her involved in stuff so she doesn't just lie in bed and sleep all day, which makes me happy. The whole property looks very nice. Everything always seems very clean and well maintained. The care staff is very good. They call to keep me updated on everything. They are very informative.

    Tiffany and Tonya are very personable and helpful. They're very, very efficient and quick. One housekeeper has really taken my aunt under her wing and has gone above and beyond. I think the variety is really nice, there is lots of music and they started bringing in animals, a pig and maybe a goat, unusual animals sometimes and the residents love them. The front desk is very professional and personable and just aware of everything that's going on. She likes it very much and I've eaten there a few times and enjoy it too. They're very accommodating. All in all it has been a great fit for us.

    I think it's good here at the community. I've been in to several things when they had groups come in, and I thought that was always very good. I know my mom doesn't always go down to everything that they have, but I know they have a nice variety of stuff. The activities girls seem to do a good job with what they have. The outside of the community looks good, they keep up with it and the girls that do her meds are usually pretty good about that.

    My husband had to go to a nursing home in January for some therapy and we were very happy when he got back to this facility. It is a great value. He has remarked a number of times that the food is good. He enjoys the music. I see maintenance people working in the general area and they do a good job. They have been very helpful. They have great people working in the care unit.

    We chose it because she couldn’t live at home, she was diagnosed with Dementia. It's a good value. When you compare it to other facilities we toured you get a lot more, there's a lot more she can do and the space is bigger. I am very satisfied with management. They have been very helpful with her transition and getting her all set up. Healthcare services are doing very well. They make sure she gets her medication and all that. I'm assuming housekeeping and laundry are okay because we haven’t had any issues. So I would say it's good.

    Overall, the facility is well taken care of. The management staff seems to be responsive to any questions you raise. When I go to see my mom on a Saturday, she's always in an activity. It seems like they have a good mix of activities. It seems like they have enough for my mom who had a stroke. They seem to have field trips for others who are more able. So it seems like they have a good mix of activities. Overall, I would say they keep it reasonably clean.

    Cora, who's in charge of the health and wellness, is very devoted to the residents there and she's been great with talking to me. One main nurse is wonderful, she's just great. Her name is Tonya. She's very good, so I think my mother gets excellent care from her. We took her down to the activities last week for happy hour and she enjoyed going down there for that. The activities director is wonderful, she's just great. The business manager was new after the company purchased them, and she's excellent. "I've always felt that she was safe and comfortable there and overall, I think the Haven is just great.

    The value is good. I checked other facilities and some of them were outrageous. The price here is average. It is not too expensive but not cheap either. The dining room is very nice. They clean my father's room once a week. I like the way the facility looks and it does not smell like a nursing home. It is a very nice place. The maintenance staff responds to requests pretty quickly. The med techs are really attentive and easy to talk to.

    I think the management staff does a good job. I've spoken many times with the main person in charge and she's always been very receptive and called me back, and has always taken the time. My mom does participate, and she enjoys it. She goes on the country rides, out to luncheons, and out for ice cream. And one time she event went to the casino with them. I think everything's in good shape. It's a very clean facility, but the stairwells could use some cleaning. If my mother needs anything done, the maintenance staff does it.

    My mother seems happier here. She seems more alert and able to do more on her own. I've talked with the director. She helped me when we did the process of doing all the paperwork. It went extremely well. I was in the dining hall once or twice when she was there, and she seemed to like it. I haven't heard any complaints on the food. She participates more now than she had before. They say she's in the bistro a lot and she plays bingo. I saw the list of activities planned for them this month, and I think she'll enjoy most of them. When I was there on Monday her room was all made up and all her clean laundry seemed to be back in her room. I think they're doing an excellent job there. She seems to be really well, getting her medicines and things like that.
