Debbie H., Daughter of Resident
"The Hammond Center for Assisted Living in Grinnell, Iowa has been a Godsend for our mother. She moved into the Center in November and loves the facility. She said, "They treat me like a Queen!" The socialization she gets daily is exactly what she needed. They are served 3 meals a day in a lovely dining room setting. She often sits and visits for an hour after her meal. They have structured activities every day by their Activity Coordinator, which may be crafts for them to do or some sort of group participation activity. They celebrate and decorate for every holiday to the fullest extent. It is a beautiful facility and always immaculately clean.
They have a gym downstairs with a walking track and some equipment that is for use during their therapy session or on their own time. They also have a large kitchen area for family events and a movie room downstairs available to all residents. Sammi Bryan is the head of the Center and she takes a special interest and personal interest in every resident she has. She gets to know them personally so she can help with their daily needs and desires. She makes them all feel like they are at home there. The place has been a lifesaver for my mother and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering Assisted Living. I cannot say enough good things about the facility and all of the staff. They all are very genuine, caring individuals and you can tell they enjoy their job and the residents they care for. We are very fortunate to have a facility like this in Grinnell. Thank you, Sammi!"
