a great choice for us
Our mom has been at Millview for about 5 years. After coming back to New York State from Texas, we sought out a smaller more intimate place for her to live. This suited us because it was so close. The transition took time, but with the help and friendliness of all staff it eventually worked out. They are available when she needs assistance an upbeat encouraging when she needs only that. The trips out is something she has not chosen to do as we take her out, but she attends and enjoys the activities that interest her. Bingo is a favorite. We also enjoy the family activities such as Christmas celebration that is held for resident and their family. It is great having staff that bring her medications to her and also someone for when she is not feeling well. The kitchen staff and cooks also work with the residents within their ability to make sure everyone is eating in maintaining good hydration. Their interest in them is evident as they quickly learn about all new residents. As they make friends with other residents, you can see them cheering each other on. The small out of the way facility was an excellent choice for us.
my mom spent 5 wonderful years at Millview
We needed to find a reputable assisted living facility for my mother. So my husband, myself and mom set out one day to visit a few of them. We looked at and toured two places. They were nice but large. Mom had Alzheimer’s and I was hoping to find some place she could navigate because of its unique design. We continued to our last place on the list, Millview Homes. As soon as we walked in the door a very friendly receptionist welcomed us. The lobby was homey, had a fireplace and a big grand father clock. Excellent. Right away I rated the entranceway a 10. Robin sage was there to greet us and give us a tour. Robin was an excellent host, introduced us to the director, nurses and other staff. Millview was just the right size and on one floor and rectangular (no getting lost here). The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. The dining room is nicely lighted. It has plenty of space to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers and the people who serve the residents. Hallways are wide and rooms have large windows with plenty of natural light. I spoke to a couple of the residents. They were enthusiastic and said they liked living at Millview Homes.
My mom spent five wonderful years at Millview Homes. She enjoyed talking to the residents. Everyone on the staff was very kind and patient. I was extremely pleased with the care and enjoyed the special barbecue in the spring and beautiful Christmas party in December. I also found the entertainment fun and praiseworthy. I even asked Robin if she would save a room for me when I became a senior citizen.
very happy with the level of care he received
My dad was a resident of Millview for four years. During this time we had a great relationship with the staff at Millview. They kept us informed on a constant basis of any concerns they had regarding my dad. The facility was very clean, the rooms were spacious and bright. The staff was caring and accommodating to his needs. Our family was very happy with the level of care that he received during his stay.
thank you for the great care
During this difficult time with social distancing and the coronavirus I wanted to write to you and your personnel to thank you for the great care you and your staff are providing for my mother and the other residents of Millview. My family and I are very confident that every precaution is being taken to keep my mother safe.
In general I would like to commend the employees for the care they have provided for my mother of the last five years. She is so well looked after. I feel each one treats her like she is their own mother. She is included in all the daily activities. She enjoys her meals. Her room is lovely. No matter what time of day someone in the family stops to see my mother, everyone is aware of where she is and what she is doing. That alone is reassuring to us.
There is constant communication with your staff in regards to doctors’ appointments, concerns about my mother, or if she needs anything. We know all her wants are being met and in a timely fashion.
Peace of mind is worth an awful lot. The family has that peace of not worrying about our 97 year old matriarch of the family. I thank each and everyone of you for allowing us that comfort.
excellent care and attention
On behalf of my family, I want to thank you all for the excellent care and attention you gave to my mom while she resided at Millview. Mom loved everything about living there. She made lots of friends with both residents and staff. I know mom felt safe and loved by everyone.
Being a small yet vibrant community, Millview was the perfect place for my mom. She go to know the residents, especially her tablemates, and loved all the staff, especially Juanita and Olivia. Mom enjoyed all the activities and musical programs she participated in. Everyone happily embraced her and made her feel welcomed from the very beginning of her stay.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication and devotion to make mom’s remaining time a joyous one.
my father thoroughly enjoyed his time at Millview
I would like to let you know how much my father enjoyed his stay at Millview. He enjoyed the many conversations with everyone and the special attention he received. He was very pleased with the fact that he enjoyed certain foods for breakfast and it was allowed and served. The bingo and ice cream socials were events that he also enjoyed.
One of his biggest events were his trips to the casino in Saratoga. This is a time that pleased him immensely. I believe he may have gotten many of the other residents excited too.
He thoroughly enjoyed his time at Millview and will miss everyone there. Thank you and your staff for making my father’s stay a pleasant one.
pleased with the love and care
On behalf of our family I would like to express how pleased we’ve been over the past 6 years with the love and care that our parents have received. The staff has treated us like family and made it very comfortable for our loved ones and for family when we visit. There are always fun activities to participate in and good healthy meals. It’s always an anxious time choosing a place for your aging family members that need assistance later on in life, but Millview has more than put to rest any uneasiness we may have had.
Best regards to our Millview family as we move west. You’ll all be missed.
