A year ago I needed to move my mom into respite and was lucky enough to find a room at the Dwelling Place. My mother had dementia and was what could be described as a “difficult resident”. The staff was amazing with her during her adjustment period. She settled in quite quickly and started participating in the home. As a result, I decided to keep her there on a full time basis. Her appetite improved along with her physical well being. Mentally she was stimulated daily, had increased socialization and began to smile and be content with life. She stopped asking to go home and began smiling and waving when I left. She had been angry and aggressive for a few years, so the changes were welcome. The staff to resident ratio was excellent, and there was always someone keeping an eye on her, saying hello and making sure she was comfortable. Words can’t express how lucky I was to have placed her in the Dwelling Place, and I will be forever grateful to the dedication and care she received from the staff. They made my mother’s last few months better than I could have ever imagined.

“My daughter and I were lucky to find a spot at Dwelling Place for my mom, Lois, when she needed more care than could be provided in her assisted living facility. Immediately, it felt more like a home to her than an institution. The staff was gentle and caring. For Mom, it was the best place possible, given her circumstances. I’d like to thank the staff at Dwelling Place for their many kindnesses.”

BOUQUET – “To Dwelling Place Seniors Care Facility. They took in our father with no waiting list for respite or long-term care. He was treated to good food, music, entertainment and full complex care. The staff really cared about him, got to know him and treated him like family. Things that a large facility can’t do.”
