The employees and Management here are so kind, compassionate and caring. This review is based on all staff including our Director. Our Director, George, addressed the residents at a recent Town Hall meeting. He made me and others I'm sure feel appreciated and George put a smile on so many faces. I am grateful and feel appreciated.
I can't tell you the number of times I've been served COLD food! And watched my grandpa and others be served cold food too. These people pay good money to live here and have hot meals, absolutely not acceptable. I would give this place 5 stars if it weren't for the consistent cold food which should always be served hot because everything else about this place is great. Please people of amethyst, quit serving these seniors cold food, it's absolutely not okay...don't lie to them and say, "it's cooking" after waiting 30-40min only to serve cold food!!! It's gotta come to an end.
The place is very nice and staff is wonderful. I'd like to give it 5 stars but the food is very disappointing. My folks have been there over a year now and for the first 9 months the food had been good. But in the last 4 months the meats are tough and lack taste. Their Christmas meal was supposed to be special turned out to be a disappointment. The meat was cold and tough. Please work on your food quality.
My Mother in law lives here and if possible, I would recommend this place with some comments. The Staff was great, however, the facilities needs some upkeep. One of the RN's didn't use gloves when doing a wound check. All the other's did wear gloves. The carpets need cleaning or replaced-some were stained. The windows needed to be washed. The paint needs to be kept up in the hallways. That's a tough one since most have electric scooters which beat up the corners and walls. My MIL's place had one part of a cabinet door off and the counter had been repair on the corners in a less than desirable manner. I ate 3 meals there and the food could use some improvement as well. The hamburger I had was like dry leather. My spinach salad was a salad less the spinach. Other meals were okay. The Staff is what makes this place, but it just be nicer if there were little improvements. I am recommending it, but not giving it 5 stars. After all, the care is what is most important.
Absolutely amazed with how pleasant my experience was, considering I moved my grandmother in 4 days before Christmas. My contact was Erik Grimstad and i'm so grateful for his work ethic and humanity, he was SO patient and caring with my grandmother. So far everyone i've met has been a happy, smiling face. The community is impeccable and the grounds are breath taking. So much greenery, you forget you're in a desert. Every concern I had for my grandmother is now completely taken care of. The amenties go above and beyond anything else I looked at. If you're considering Amethyst, please schedule a tour and see for yourself!
