The facility is a nice family home in a wonderful neighborhood. My mother loves her private room and feels like she's at home. They have holiday celebrations that promote a family atmosphere. The Thurston Pond Trails and Nature Preserve are one block away. Visiting is easy. I'm there 3 or 4 times a week and have a cordial relationship with the staff. I am pleased with the 24/7 care they provide for my mother. Jenny, the daytime staff member, is always ready to provide information on my mother's behalf to Visiting Physicians, Area Agency on Aging 1B and Arbor Hospice.
If you need care for a loved one, I cannot stress how much Orchard Hills should be the top of your list to look at! They have so much to offer, they are run by some of the kindest, loving and most knowledgeable people I have ever met. They all truly love what they do, and the residents are truly happy, and well cared for. The residents have plenty of opportunity for enrichment, regardless of their health situation. Family is very much encouraged here. They quickly become new family members for your loved one and for you.
The home is warm and inviting, each visit you feel more and more like family. The caregivers and the owners are incredible. Everything they do is with the utmost care and compassion. The home is kept spotless, the residents are well cared for, happy and comfortable. The combined experience and dedication of the owners and staff are second to none.
Overall the care was good and my mother with Alzheimer's seemed satisfied . The house was always very clean and visiting was as convenient as can be expected, The staff seemed very dedicated to providing personal care from what I could tell. The financial cost per month could not be beat from our shopping around.
I visited this facility recently (January, 2018). I was really impressed with the cleanliness of this place, and the dedication of the employee who was working at that time. The owners were very nice, and took the time to answer all our questions to our satisfaction. When we got there, it was dinner time, and the residents were sitting down for their dinner. They all looked very neat and clean, and happy!! Really impressive!! Another plus is that they have all private rooms, which is hard to find in Ann Arbor. I would definitely move my dad here, but they had no vacancy. i will strongly recommend this place
