"Being a resident at Someren Glen Retirement Community for a year now has opened my mind, heart, body and spirit to a whole new world of what is possible in this new phase of senior living. I had been stagnant in thinking, neglectful in physical activity and unmindful of my spiritual connection. I’ve entered into a whole new world of senior living as it should be – it is a purposeful way of sustaining us on this journey we are all on.Senior living doesn’t have to be a means to an end. It can be a purposeful, engaging, rewarding way of living and it can be yours if you so choose. We as life-long learners and teachers are able to put to use these assets as we continue on this our journey, and by doing so, we become fulfilled."
"My daughter and three grandkids are just down the road and it’s really nice being close to them. But I’m so glad I have my own place here at Someren Glen. My daughter found this place. I enjoy seeing trees when I look out my window. It is such a pleasant environment to live.I love going to the Brain Boosters, Brain Games and going out on all the outings that are made available here. It is important to work my brain because I’m a firm believer that you have to “use it or lose it.”"
"I felt at home here from the day I moved in. I was especially happy that a chaplain was on staff who conducted mid-week chapel and Sunday church services.My two sons are glad I chose to be here. One can be as busy as desired or as alone as desired. Not having to cook a main meal each day is a joy!"
"Having struggled for five years after my husband’s death with house and yard upkeep and snow removal, I decided a change had to be made.My children would have welcomed me into their homes, but they have jobs, children and grandchildren of their own to consider. Knowing that I am safe at Someren Glen gives them great peace of mind.The staff and residents of Someren Glen are friendly, caring and helpful. There is an abundance of activities, physical exercises and faith-based meetings to meet the needs of the residents."
"They were very attentive, I never had to wait on anything. It was always timely. I don't have words to explain all the gladness and hope that I received from every individual."
"Been there. Done that. I can handle owning a house. I just choose not to. Come into the lobby. It’s pleasant. There are residents to talk with and eat meals with. This is our time to enjoy!"
"It’s such a loving environment. I can go to work and know Dad’s not only cared for, but cared about and is engaged intellectually."
We'd come back if we needed it. Go for a smaller rehab care center and not something that's not 90 or 100 beds. Their count is spot on. They're able to manage his care better. People were happy and friendly to be there. They're happy to work with their colleagues ... if they were short. It was just an overall professional with a focus on a sense of urgency. They 're positive towards each other. The PT was excellent! They were always coming in and always encouraging. They never just took a no. It's how they appreciated it. It's excellent!
The CNA was Deb. She was great! It was a really good experience. It was well-run and consistent. It was very clean. She was in another facility in the summer, and it was fine. When we got to Someren Glen, we were impressed with what more they did. The communication ... was really good between the staff, people, and us.
Unfortunately I had to place my dad in assisted living one year ago due a variety of medical and social concerns that arose during the pandemic. I have been so happy with the loving care he has received. He is a new man. Consistent medication, good food and positive interaction ... from the staff and other residents has returned my father to his pre pandemic self. The staff has been wonderful to him and I found them very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Someren Glen also did an excellent job keeping the patients safe and healthy during this pandemic. I could not be more happy with my choice of assisted living facilities.
The Director of Assisted Living, Craig Sparkman, went above and beyond supporting my husband in Someren Glen’s Assisted Living unit. His communication was prompt and spot on. He helped my husband in ways I never expected a director of assisted living to do. He provided his cell number so I ... could be in touch. Nurse Connie and Craig even came in on their day off to wish my husband a Happy Thanksgiving. The entire care team staff treated my husband as though he was part of their family. I would highly encourage anyone thinking of assisted living for a loved one to consider Someren Glen.
Someren Glen is a first class community that offers care to all levels of need. My mother spent nearly 21 months in the long term care community and thrived there. The entire staff from administration to the health workers, life enrichment and housekeeping have truly caring hearts and are invested ... in the residents. I could not have chosen a better community for my mother and I would recommend Someren Glen to anyone seeking long term care.
A friend of mine lives there and has plenty of nice things to say about it. I've had meals in their dinning room which were quite good.
The people here really care about you personally. The assisted living area is brand new and very clean. The staff is attentive and loving.
My mother was at Someren Glen transitional care for 3 weeks after a prolonged hospital stay followed by rehab at other centers in the area. The staff at Someren Glen was very understanding and patient. They respected my mother and where she was at physically, giving her time to recover, ... while still giving her physical therapy. Greg, the lead physical therapist, was great, as was the entire nursing staff. The food was also great. Due to their efforts, she is back at her assisted care facility and doing wonderfully. I cannot say enough good things about Someren Glen.
I am a nurse who has worked in assisted living facilities. This is one of the best facilities around. One challenge that all Long Term Care facilities face is staffing. While many would say 'just pay them more', the customers (me and you) don't want to pay more, and so ... your option would be to hire a full/part-time aide or nurse (expensive for us). My point is that there are options. I've seen other employees serving at dinner to help out when they are short-staffed, which is incredible. They really try and really care here, and that cannot be said for all facilities.
My mom was here for 20 days and we were impressed with the care and service she received, as well as the fabulous communication with the staff. She really seemed to thrive at Someren Glen. Then she fell and went to a different facility, and the level of care was ... night and day! I wish we had had Someren Glen as an option the second time around, as she is certainly not thriving where she is.Thanks bunches and a /hat tip to the folks at Someren Glen!
Everyone at Rhythms Home Care is wonderful! Taking care of someone with dementia is very complex and can be exhausting. The staff is so kind and uplifting. Thank you for the good work!
I have a professional relationship with Someren Glen. I have great respect for the skilled nursing. The staff is very caring and really k ow their patients. My other favorite part is working with Alina Muresan, their social worker. She is a pleasure to work with and truly takes care ... of every detail.
Elaine Romero is THE BEST nurse manager EVER!!!! My stepdad has been here for at least 2 weeks and I could not be happier with his care! Elaine has taken excellent care of him, kept me updated frequently and even caught a serious health issue he had and sent him ... to the hospital! Probably saved his life! I wasn't expecting too much when he first went there, since many rehab places turn out to be only fair. But, Someren Glen has turned out to be wonderful! My stepdad remarks how good they are to him and says the food is good too. Alena, the Social Worker, is very responsive and keeps in touch, always returning phone calls and following through! Tyler is really helping him with the physical therapy part and getting him strong again! They have not tried to push him out with an early discharge, but really care that he is back to health and strong again! Even the woman who answers the phone at the main number is very nice and goes above and beyond to explain about the place and help you find what you need. I don't know all the others' names, but my stepdad says they've given him nice showers and always check on him and help him quickly when he needs something. I chose this place for him and I'm so glad I did. I have been a nurse for 20 years and am in grad school for nurse practitioner. I have a good grasp on what healthcare should be and this place has exceeded expectations! Thank you Elaine Romero, Alena, Tyler and everyone at Someren Glen!
