Wonderful place to call home.

I had the pleasure of visiting Southmayd Home for Women and was so impressed by the overall atmosphere, it’s like one big, beautiful home. The residents were actively engaged and there was plenty to do, yummy food choices and both staff and residents seemed to all be very happy there. Southmayd Home for Women has some good solid longevity in key positions. A woman only facility is quite unique and I think a fantastic idea for many. Families are welcome at any time, and they offer respite stay which is a nice way to ease a loved one into long-term care. The outreach coordinator was so warm, welcoming and enthusiastic. She loves what she does, and it shows.

The caring people at Southmayd made my mother feel welcome and loved right away. The other ladies who live at Southmayd could not have been nicer. It feels like home. I am so blessed to have found it and would recommend it.

My mom was a resident for about 8 years. The facility was homey, clean, comfortable. The staff was caring and friendly, so compassionate, always recognizing the need for a feeling of independence. There were always activities and programs to keep the residents engaged. As a family we all enjoyed visiting my mom and all the other residents. The staff knew all of us, and always kept us informed about mom’s day-to-day care. Mom celebrated her 100th birthday there and the staff planned an awesome party for her complete with 100 roses, delicious food prepared by the staff, and entertainment! Christmas was always special with decorations made by the residents, a festive family party, a program put on by the residents. One thing that always impressed me was the care taken with the laundry. My mother was very particular with her clothes, and they washed and ironed her things just like she used to!
Great place for loved one.

I am so very happy to have the Southmayd family caring for my aunt. She has been there for 5 years now, and she really has come to love the place and the people. Also, it is a safe environment for her. It is especially nice and a great comfort to know that there are wonderful people looking after her since I am no longer there several times a week to check on her. I recommend Southmayd to anyone who has a need for their services for their loved one.
Loving care for Mom…peace of mind for us.

Southmayd Home was the ideal place for mom when she began to require more help and supervision with daily activities. She started with respite stays and gradually transitioned to permanent residence. The transition was smooth with the help of caring and competent staff, their attention to detail and a comfortable family-oriented environment. For example, my mother had many specific food preferences…the dietary staff went out of their way to accommodate her with alternate meal choices. She enjoyed selected social activities, but they respected her privacy when she preferred to stay in her own room to read or pray. Our family always felt welcome and were encouraged to visit at any time. All staff, from administration to aides and housekeeping, were sensitive to her needs and provided emotional support for all of us as needed. Southmayd Home is a hidden gem with clean and beautiful surroundings. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a safe and nurturing environment for Mom.
Wonderful safe and great overall.

My aunt has been there for 5 years now. At first, she was not sure she wanted to be there but those feelings changed quickly. She loves this place and the people who work here. I am very grateful to find such a nice place that treats their women with dignity and love. I only wish we had gotten my aunt here years before. If you need a safe and beautiful environment for your family member this is the place.
A wonderful place.

Our family has had four members residing at Southmayd over the years. The services from medication dispensing, meals, laundry, hairdresser, and activities are all the best and greatly appreciated by our family.
