It isn't fancy and full of nice amenities like the luxury assisted living facilities out there, but it has waaaayyyy better care than the one my dad was in before he moved here. I walked in on him during an activity at the previous assisted living facility, and he was just snoozing in his wheelchair, so I asked them if he ever participates, and they said no, he just sleeps. So then I asked if they could wake him up when its time to start the activity, and they said they would try, but he would probably just go back to sleep. So I talked to the director, who then suggested that I hire a companion through an agency that works out of the facility to keep him engaged. So I did that, at great extra cost. Lo and behold, when I walked in another day, the paid companion was just sitting there while my dad still snoozed in his wheelchair. I asked the companion what the deal was, and she said he doesn't want to do the activity. So I tried to get him to do the activity, and I finally realized that he just wants to snooze. He likes when I visit and bring the kids, but aside from that, he doesn't care to socialize or do the many activities they have planned, or use the gym, or use the game room, or anything else they offer. He just likes to do nothing. I was paying for him to be constantly engaged, though, so we decided that a smaller home setting would be better for him, and started looking nearby for small assisted living. We went to a few of these homes, but ultimately decided on Kimberly's, as it was close-by and we got a good vibe from the owners and staff. My dad did really well there, and they even found an activity he actually would do, reading the newspaper. He would read it pretty much all day long and tell the caregivers about the articles. Although the caregivers didn't know much about the articles, but they seemed to be good at parroting back what he was saying, which kept him feeling happy and he even told me that they felt like his new family.!

We had a wonderful experience here with my dad, who only recently passed away. I think his quality of life improved by leaps and bounds when we moved him from the Carlton, which is a moderately-sized facility where he wasn't getting enough attention and he wasn't going to the activities there anymore,. Kimberly's was like he was back in his old house but with a few other people there. Plus the caregivers were the same every day and he even learned their names! Anyway, I just wish I had found this place sooner (like 2 years sooner), since my father only came in the final few months of his life.

We placed my mother here when her dementia worsened and we couldn't afford more care. It was going to cost us $20k+/month just to have a single caregiver 24/7 from a local agency (I won't name them here). We knew we needed another option, ang by moving her out of the home, we were able to generate additional income by renting the house out (though it was a lot of effort initially). So I started googling and came across All About Seniors. It seemed too good to be true, but it was perfect indeed! It was very similar to my mother's home, so it wasn't too tough of a transition, plus it was the same care staff every day, which helped a lot. Also, when she got up at night, which was random and only a couple times a week, the staff was able to get to her quickly before anything could happen. It was heartbreaking to see my mom deteriorate before my eyes, but at least I knew and trusted that she was safe and well-cared for.

Caregivers are wonderful. Owners are horrible liars, can't be trusted. Don't put you loved ones here. Because Patrick chose to ignore attorney request for fake POA to be turned over, courts had to get involved with a subpoena . Patrick also chose not to provide funds owed to spouse of decedent, but instead chose to willing and knowingly conspire with fake POA to have funds directed away from spouse. Those funds have since gone missing. Since Patrick has chosen to make false allegations public; my attorney states there is enough evidence to file lawsuit against Patrick, the care home, and fake POA for defamation of character.
