We visited the Joseph C. Thomas Center today, Jan. 16th. It is the memory care facility associated with Richfield Living. Our tour guide, Renee, did a good job with the tour and providing information. However, due to the overall size of the facility and the distance from our home I don't believe this will be on our final list of choices.

My aunt found lots of people she knew and could relate to. The staff has been very caring in helping her to adjust.
Residents love it. Staff Caringreviewed on: 12/18/2015 by Anonymous
My mom lived @Knollwood Independent Living Apartments on the Richfield campus for almost 10 years. She was happy there socializing with the residents. The the staff is friendly and care about the residents. At 91 she now needs a little more personal care and we were relieved when she suggested the move to The Oaks, their assisted living facility. Many of the residents from Independent Living have moved there so she sees familiar faces. It is a beautiful facility and campus. The food is good. The housekeepers, kitchen, maintenance, medical and administrative staff are so kind and patient with the residents. Many of the staff have been there for years. So many activities for the residents. I urge anyone considering such a facility to go visit and talk with the residents. They gather in the "chat room", a large parlor, mid morning and afternoon each day for fellowship or on the front porch weather permitting so it is easy to connect with them.

Some activities they had were day trips, they would go out for breakfast or lunch. There is a calendar that has daily activities on it. You can order food at this community, but you can also make your own food. They have two different sizes for the one bedroom, they also have two bedroom apartments, cottages and studios This community is very beautiful, there is a garden, three lakes, walking trails and swings.
