Wonderful, Professional Service We were looking for a home for my mother. My husband and I took a tour of Blue Bell Place and fell in love with it. The staff is compassionate, professional, and very welcoming. They answered all of my numerous questions and concerns with the patience and consideration you would expect from an assisted living facility. In a very stressful and difficult time for our family, the director and staff were so helpful. They understood the guilt we felt with the situation and how hard it is to find the right place to take care of the person who always took care of you. It really meant a lot to us. Unfortunately, my mother passed away the day after we took our second tour. I believe she would have loved living at Blue Bell Place and I know she would have been in caring, loving hands.

Very difficult to deal with director, who has a huge head and does no wrong. In my opinion, we were misled and taken advantage of at a most vulnerable time for our family. We all lost time from work (they ran us around) and had to deal with a most unpleasant situation, which should be avoided if at all possible.

Blue Bell Place is an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities are an apartment-style habitat designed to focus on providing assistance with daily living activities. They provide a higher level of service for the elderly which can include preparing meals, housekeeping, medication assistance, laundry, and also do regular check-in's on the residents. Basically, they are designed to bridge the gap between independent living and nursing home facilities. When thinking about how to pay for care, assisted living facilities are generally less expensive than nursing homes, if assisted living is a viable option for your loved one.

Also, Blue Bell Place facility provides Alzheimer's care. This means it has special safeguards for wandering seniors, and caregivers are trained in handling dementia behaviors.

Also, Blue Bell Place care provider provides hospice care. Hospice care is an infusion of home care and facility care provided to benefit terminally ill patients and support their families through their tough times.

Blue Bell Place offers assisted living and memory care in positive, engaging environment. We don't believe excellent care has to be delivered in an environment that seems medical. Blue Bell Place is more like a stylish and comfortable home. That means no call bells, no associates in scrubs, and fresh, delicious meals created by a skilled chef. Blue Bell is committed to creating a culture where everyone is encouraged to express their true self. When people express their passion, creativity or vitality they connect with each other and communities are formed. These communities are full of spirit, character, and adventure.
