The staff at the Homestead was very helpful in explaining the many varying details about senior living options. The Homestead seemed to be a close knit community of caring staff and happy seniors. THe facilities were clean and pleasant. I would not hesitate to have my loved ones living there.

I visited The Homestead at Hickory View recently to gather an idea of how they work, what they have to offer those living there, and the overall atmosphere so I can share my experience with my Medicare clients. I think it's important to meet the staff, walk around and take everything in before sharing my opinions and views to those who entrust in me. With that said, I had an amazing experience! I met with Holly upon arrival and immediately when walking in the door you feel at home. She took me to lunch in Homesteads dining area to start our visit. The food was great - the members get to have amazing meals served to them all day while relaxing in a formal dining room rather than a kitchen area. We then took a tour of the grounds to see how they offer an apartment/cottage that meets all needs. Some apartments are smaller and great for those not looking for a lot of space but very updated and bright! Other apartments that offer a lot of great features, spacious and accommodating. Then we moved to the cottages, which WOW. You feel at home the minute you walk in! Not only are the living spaces great, the amenities that Homestead offers are unbelievable. To know that they have nursing 24-7 if needed, a salon to make everyone feel great all the time, a movie theater and gathering rooms with activities to constantly give everyone something to do and be able to enjoy their spare time was great! I could honestly go on for days at how great my visit was! The staff was smiles the entire time I was there but I never got the feeling that it was because a tour was going on. No one knew the purpose of my visit besides Holly and they all seemed at ease and enjoying their job. Holly sincerely loves what she does! She loves everyone living there and their needs are at the top of her priority list. If anyone from your family is considering simplifying their lifestyle or just looking to have people close by and looking for Independent Living, I couldn't recommend The Homestead at Hickory View enough! Thank you for having me!

As a community-based medical service provider I've had several patients at The Homestead. I've felt comfortable from the moment I step into the facility to the moment I leave. Always a friendly, smiling face at the front desk and even in the other residents as I walk down the hall. All of my patients have felt comfortable and loved at The Homestead. One afternoon I kept my patient too long and a friend came looking for him making sure that he was alright! My patients have enjoyed the freedom of still being able to get out around town by using Homestead's transportation. The staff have welcomed my company with open arms and keep in great contact with us. I feel like we are all family and looking out for one another! Such a wonderful place!

An Incredible PlaceAfter living in the Washington DC area for more than sixty years, my Aunt moved to Washington, Mo. a major change. However with the wonderful setting,at Homestead and terrific staff, my Aunt soon adjusted and called it home. She was a resident of Homestead at Hickory View for six years..As time went on she needed assistance. Having a nursing staff on site enabled her to live out her life very contently. She did not have to move to a new environment for assistance. Every time we would drive up to Homestead - she would say "home again, home again."I will be forever grateful for the kindness and generosity of the Homestead and Cooperative Home Care folks...and so was my Aunt.
