07/19/2010 An OurParents User Writes: As a family member of a current resident at Cornerstone Care Option, we can affirm that this facility always has fully qualified, helpful, compassionate staff providing round-the-clock care for its residents. The staff is exceptionally well-trained. Everyone, including laundry and kitchen staff are resident-focused when doing their jobs. The maintence staff works hard to maintain a state-of-the-art, hazard-free, beautiful facility and grounds. The locked unit(s) assure 24 hour safety and promote freedom for residents within beautiful rooms, corridors, dining rooms and meeting areas. Careful planning included a wonderful, enclosed but spacious inner courtyard. The owner/administrator is always on site and oversees every aspect of the facility's provision of care. The residential care wing of this facility provides less intensive care for residents desiring more independence in a safe, comfortable and friendly environment. We can recommend this facility as being the best in the Northwest after we've searched and searched. Please see the facility's recent award in US News and World Report Magazine.
