Mixed experiencereviewed on: 01/16/2015 by Anonymous
We have had a very mixed experience with Mount Vernon of South Park. The place itself is not bad, for the most part it is clean and well kept, and the staff are friendly. However, during the sales process they made promises about the sort of services they offer, and those have not been delivered on. And I have heard the same complaint from other families I have spoken with with relatives here. As an example, they said they would help get my loved one ready for bed, but it turns out this isn't something they do. They also have a very high degree of staff turnover (which included the sales person who made these promises to us.)

My loved one was only there a couple of months. I would recommend this community. They did the best in providing gluten free meals. The room was ok, I believe the furniture could be updated. They did have activities such as entertainment coming in for the residents.
More wonderful than can be imaginedreviewed on: 12/05/2013 by Mardee A. & Keren F.
We had to move my husband from a facility he'd been at for a year and a half. We consistently had issues with the property that had just finally came to a head. We had seen the adverts for A place for Mom many times, and finally took advantage of that wonderful service. Our representative spent good, quality time talking and later emailing facilities that fit our needs. Because of the distance, we hadn't even considered Mt. Vernon of South Park... it was a bit out of the way, but a virtual tour stole our hearts. It was absolutely georgeous inside and out. Yet, we still decided to trek to 3 other properties just to make sure and NONE of them were as good as Mt. Vernon.... in all areas. We planed to move my husband 3 weeks down the road, but the upper level staff at his current facility started playing games once they knew we were intending to leave. We called Mt. Vernon and in the space of 48 hours, we had my husband in!!! It was an absolute miracle! The staff from the dining folks to the nurses and maintenance director were friendly and BEYOND accommodating. My husband is finally getting the exercise and activities he never had before. He feels safe in his own room, and the safety has effected his thought processes for the better!
Definitely a Place to Considerreviewed on: 09/18/2020 by Anonymous
The community is wonderful. The communication between the staff and families is wonderful. They have set up a way to communicate with our loved ones due to the pandemic. The staff has been more attentive to the issues of my loved one. If there is a concern they call me and we discuss it. They even set us up with the VA assistance due to the loved one having a spouse that was former military. I feel like there is a peace of mind at this community for my loved one. This is a smaller community, than the previous one my loved one as it.
Doing ok but could be more attentive.reviewed on: 03/28/2014 by D. B.
I have asked them to do certain things, like check on my loved one every two hours, because they are used to being more independent. This doesn't seem to be happening and they aren't as attentive as they could be, or as I would like them to be. The food is ok, but the portions are smaller than our loved one would like. I like the idea that they play old time music all day long. I also like the security, when you come in they have an alarm on the door so they know someone came in and you have to let someone know if you leave after 8:00. They also have a huge courtyard with a barbeque and a fountain, it's very serene.
