I like the way they treat their staff and residents both. warmly, respectfully, protected. thanks Copper Canyon team.
The staff at Copper Canyon are some of the most kind, caring and compassionate people I have had the pleasure to work with.
Terri Waldman, Executive Director, took care of my dad during his late stages of Alzheimer's. I was impressed with the care he received even while he was difficult at times. Terri still remembers me and my dad when I see her around and is always very friendly. I would absolutely recommend Copper Canyon.
I placed my husband at Copper Canyon in mid-2018. Overall, I have been pleased with the care he receives. While no facility is perfect, I do believe that when I express a concern about an aspect of his care, my concerns are heard and we work on potential solutions together. I have been very impressed with Terri Waldman, the director, and her advocacy for people with memory disorders. Most of the staff seem to truly care about the residents and do their best to provide excellent care. Of course, the turnover of staff is concerning, but not surprising, considering the nature of the work. The food is excellent and home-cooked.
