November 2013My wife, a Parkinson's and dementia patient, was a resident of another residence, which, for a number of reasons, became unsatisfactory for both my wife and me. I decided to move her to another facility. I did some more research and checked several residences, and after much thought, decided to move her to Casablanca Home Care. When I first visited Casablanca it was without my wife, but with three other people, whose judgement I trust. After a tour and discussions with the administrator, all four of us were impressed and in full agreement that Casablanca is a place far superior to the one she was then in. The next day, I brought my wife who immediately had a desire to move there.Please note that, even with her diseases, she has sufficient cognitive power to contribute to these decisions, so I would not have done this without her full consent.In the time she has been a resident she has been very happy there. I concur. I couldn't be more pleased with her care.These are people who obviously truly care. Some of the things that they do, in addition to seeing to her personal requirements in a competent and prompt way, they do such things as serving meals on the patio, weather permitting, taking her to have her hair and nails done and taking her shopping at the nearby mall! She had not had the pleasure of shopping (!) for quite a while and she loved it.Obviously, both she and I are very pleased with Casablanca. Not only have they done even more that I expected. They have created a wonderful family atmosphere and both she and I are treated as such. So, too are any visitors.I would not hesitate to recommend Casablanca to anyone who may be considering a placement of a loved one.
As THE_BFD stated, read the Yelp reviews and ignore the warm & fuzzy one. Someone had to been paid off, because this facility is dangerously negligent and inefficient. Slow response to the "call light" and substandard food. (I had to ask my daughter to bring food in for me to prepare myself) They took their time with my discharge, probably so they could charge for another day. Lots of sick people and some mentally ill mixed in with orthopedic patients like myself. If you don't believe me, do a tour without an appointment. My floor and bathroom were dirty and I had to ASK them to clean it because my socks were dirty from walking to the bathroom. If you love your family members, please don't send them here.
Read the yelp reviews! It tells the true story of what REALLY is going on at Magnolia Gardens. They let grandma sit for hours. Nobody helped her. Nobody even spoke ENGLISH there for Gods sakes! Please, PLEASE don't send a loved one here, EVER
In 2012, I stayed here for 3 weeks when recovering from a severe broken leg. The staff was friendly and helpful. They made a genuine efforts to make all the patients feel at home.
