The Villa on Sweetwater offered a warm and friendly environment with round-the-clock care for my mom. The caregivers were very loving, caring and attentive to my mother’s special needs. Jana and Peter were accommodating and willing to make adjustments for Mother’s care. They were often seen around the house. I was especially appreciative that I was able to be actively involved in Mother’s daily life and always felt right at home whenever I visited Sweetwater Place.
I recommend Colten Adult Care homes to anyone looking for placement of a loved one. I’ve visited them all. They are very neat, clean and in wonderful neighborhoods The meals are good and the medications are administered in a professional manner. Most importantly, Peter and Jana always have the resident’s needs and concerns at heart. They are very approachable and open to suggestions. I always felt at ease working with them and at [the assisted living] home whenever I visited.
One of the most important aspects when shopping for the right situation for my mother was a place that felt like home. All of the Colten Adult Care homes fit that perfectly. We loved the home cooked meals and the smells of baking. My mother loved to be outside. She loved to be able to walk, listen to the birds and maybe even plant some flowers/vegetables. The home we selected offered her all of that and more. I have recommended Colten Adult Care to many friends who have been faced with this type transition for their parent.

Even before working with you both and helping with the activities in your homes we were impressed with the high priority you gave to having an activity director and ongoing activities. In fact, your model was one of the inspirations for our business a couple years later!
We were also very pleased to see that your [senior] caregivers worked in shifts as opposed to 24 hour a day live-in. When we first met you, we were looking for a home for my parents and having a caregiver that was awake during the night was very important for their care.
Later, when we worked for you, your staff was always welcoming and supportive when we did activities. In the years that we have known and worked with you we experienced that your homes are more than a business. We observed that quality care, lovingly connecting with your residents in many ways, and providing opportunities for them to be active and engaged in life were your top priorities. Those also are ours in looking for homes in which we share activities and also in which we would trust for our parents’ care.
