Olimpia’s was a Godsend! Out in the country in a serene environment. My sister was diagnosed with cancer in 5 areas and the doctor said she only had 2-6 months to live. Olimpia welcomed my sister, and took such wonderful care of her. Kept her clean and very comfortable. They always made sure her favorite shows were on the right channel. My sister also loved the food. Such a wonderful place.

My mother lived at Olimpia’s for the last year of her life after suffering a stroke which left her unable to walk, feed, dress herself,etc. The doctors gave her a few weeks to a few months to live. When we found Olimpia’s, we soon realized that it was a Godsend. She was cared for better than I could’ve done myself if I had been physically able. My mother improved greatly within a week, due to the excellent care , attention and food. Every day , Olimpia or her caretakers would dress her, feed her and bring her to the living area or outside on the beautiful deck if the weather permitted. She was never left in her bed during the day. I know this as I visited 3 -4 times a week at different times. Olimpia is truly an angel, as the other reviewers said. My mother was able to be with us nearly a year longer than expected, with a quality of life that she couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. Olimpia’s was an answer to prayer. Words cannot express how grateful we are to her and her dear family.

My mother was a resident at Olimpia's Senior Care for her last year of life. We moved her there after receiving very poor care in a commercial memory care facility. The kindness and compassion that Olimpia and her staff showed my mother was as though she was part of their family. Equally as important, they helped her to maintain her dignity. There are no words to adequately express the gratitude that I have for Olimpia and her staff. They pour their heart and soul into their residents. If you are looking for outstanding care for your loved one, look no further, you have found it. Olimpia was such a blessing not only to my precious mother, but to my entire family. She is truly an angel living among us and I am forever grateful to her.

My wife has been a resident for 9 months. No comparison to her previous care facility. I firmly believe that God sent one of his special Angel's (Olimpia) to own and oversee this care facility. Olimpia is a very special human and her caretakers reflect her loving care for all residents. This is a place where your loved ones will receive special and tender care. I recommend Olimpia's Senior Care without any reservation!
