Community Reviews

My 93-year-old Mother has been at American House Memory Care for the past 11 months and we have been pleased with the facility, staff, and care. The new Executive Director has provided excellent leadership and listens and communicates well with both Residents and Family Members. Morale is high among Nurses and Aides and we especially enjoy the wide range of Weekly Activities that my Mom can take part in.

My mother was a happy resident at American House Cottage for close to 2 years. Mom loved it. My family found the staff to be outstanding. Excellent care and a perfect location for my family. Thank you to all of the staff for your loving care given to Mom and your patience for her family.

They chose American House to continue their story, now it’s your turn

I was a singer many years ago, and now I’m retired. I don’t like to live in the past or focus on past glory. I feel you live on what you accomplish today. The fact that I have time at my discretion here is very important. I like the food and I was an avid cook back home! I also haven’t done housework in eight years! I must like it, or I wouldn’t be here this long. Do you agree? Absolutely! – Isobel S.


We moved in and it was a very easy transition for us. The employees are absolutely outstanding! All of them. It almost looks like they are handpicked people. The patience they have, and how quick they are to help with what’s needed. I can’t think of anything you couldn’t get if you wanted it. I joined one of the exercise classes. My family is as excited as I am and very pleased with what they see. – Tony G.


I would recommend American House to anyone. It was the best move we ever made. The most wonderful thing was seeing my husband improve with nursing care and physical therapy. I’m now in Independent Living and I don’t have to worry about linen service, cooking or shopping – it’s all done for me! There’s also the service that takes you to appointments anytime you want. My family is ecstatic about my living arrangements, and I still have my freedom. – Joyce G.
