Here are some of the most recent assisted living and nursing home reviews. Some are positive and some are negative. Please keep in mind that many negative reviews are created after the stress of losing a loved one. Negative reviews may be a reflection of the heart-felt pain of the reviewer, not the level of service at the facility.
I love Hour Family Home Care. They are very professional and caring. I would love to work with them again.
This place is all looks, the CEO Mike is full of excuses and gets rids of good workers and brings in bad staff who they do not train well yet expect everything from. The activities are for show, they have yet to actually do any of the activities they promote. Do not come live here I'm finding away out!
I have been trying to get the entrance fee refund back from Gulf Coast Village for over 3 1/2 years. Recently I have hired a lawyer to work for me to take it to court and force this facility to return the sizable refund to the estate. They are currently using the unit my father was in for a "guest suite". They are also using the refund as investment capital. Be leery of using this place as it can hold up the settlement of the estate for years.
Understaffed, Neglect patients, employees sit outside and smoke. Check with the state for current list of violations. Please, Please, do not put your loved on here.
The therapy I received at Angel River was great. Loving staff and a great overall experience.
Excellent patient care! Older building but has recent updates. Activities are engaging and food is always good (comfort foods are their specialty).
My mother was in this facility for months. If she had to go to the bathroom during mealtime, she was ignored and often had to lie in her feces until the staff could finish the meal serving time. They did not respond promptly to her calls. My husband's father was also in this place for a short time and was left to sit on the toilet for hours before my husband found him in the same place several hours after he had left and came back. My mother's new gown was stolen, too. This has been a decade ago and perhaps it has changed.
I am writing to share my family's experience a week ago, Saturday March 30, 2013, when we attempted to have a tour of the facilities at Martha & Mary in Poulsbo. Due to the ineptitude of their staff the experience was a complete disaster. On Monday, March 18, I spoke with the director of social services, to whom I was directed to make tour arrangements. I was very specific that we wanted to see all facilities, including independent and assisted living facilities. (Note: At NO TIME during this conversation did the social services director advise me that there are no assisted living services at the Poulsbo location.) She advised that the person I should ask for on Saturday March 30 would be a specific manager. She also asked if we could be there by 1:30 p.m. (earlier than I had requested) in order to allow for enough time for the tour. I said we would do our best to get there early. On Saturday March 30, we arrived at Martha & Mary at about 1:20 p.m., expecting to see everything that might be appropriate for my mother, expecting to be able to have our questions answered, and expecting to be able to go over the financials for every option. Not unreasonable expectations by the family of a prospective resident one would think. The manager that we were told to ask for was clearly not expecting to conduct a tour and our request/arrangements had NOT been communicated to her by the social services director. Not only that, she told us she had NEVER done a tour before. It went downhill from there. She took us downstairs to the rehab facilities and showed us around; unable to answer questions without referring to a fact sheet. We asked about seeing the assisted living facilities, and initially she said she had to call someone. After we sat waiting for a good 20 minutes, she told us there are none at the Poulsbo location. So we asked about seeing the independent living facilities and we were told we could not because there was no one available there who could show us around. Three of us work in the health care field. I work in HR for a mental health facility, my husband is a master's degree in psychotherapist, and my brother is a licensed clinical social worker and MSW who has worked for a nursing home. We did not appreciate the unprofessional, incompetent manner in which we, a prospective resident and her family, were treated by the staff at Martha & Mary.
My mom is here, the chef is excellent her apartment is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Would highly recommend.
I know some of the caregivers at this facility and I'm am in utter shock at what goes on there. Most of the girls who work there are lazy and won't take care of their residents. There are only a handful of employees that do what is supposed to be done and go above and beyond their job duties. Also, many of the residents are combative toward residents and employees; just the same, many of the girls are equally abusive toward coworkers and residents. Numerous complaints have been filed with the owner, yet nothing has been done to fix the problems.
My experience with this facility regarding medical care has been rather disappointing. My mother has been a resident for almost two weeks, and I have yet to consult with the physician (who has not returned any calls he has promised to make and who did not show up for the care plan meeting). I have been forced to deal through third parties attempting to get care for my mother. It is very frustrating to see how little regard there is for responding to family concerns.
Horrible, filthy and the staff is severely under-trained. The staff will steal supplies from the residents to use on the ones who are without, like sheets, briefs and wipes. The caregivers use the same pair of gloves when changing residents soiled briefs. And so much more... beware of the smooth talking managers.. all they care about is getting that monthly rent check.
My mother was sent to Branywine Hall for Rehabilitation. She had extreme weakness in her right leg and it was felt that a stay at Brandywine Hall would benefit her recovery. Instead of increasing her strength, she left weaker. Not only did the nursing staff mis-medicate her, they over medicated her by giving her sedatives to keep her under control. Every time I came to visit she was asleep. In fact, it was reported that she slept through her therapy sessions. She had a history of low pressure: the nursing staff insisted she had hypertension, and prescribed high blood pressure medication to her, having the staff physician sign off for them. She sustained numerous difficulties from the mis-medication. They completely disregarded family, and it took me several times with phone calls from my mother's primary care physician to have the nursing staff stop their abuse in medication. My mother entered Branywine Hall Continent: She left completely incontinent and nearly crippled. They also stole her dentures. It required over 9 months of home therapy to return her to the level of ambulation she had prior to entering this nursing home. This is the worst nursing home I've had the misfortune to experience.
My hats off - really, to the Liberty Shores and Harbor House staff for helping make really tough decisions easier. I know my dad is in good hands.
My family and I have fallen in love with Warm Beach Senior Community and are grateful to have peace of mind knowing our loved one is able to remain active, purposeful and engaged. We also know that when our loved one needs more care than what he is currently receiving in his independent living cottage, assisted living and skilled nursing are just steps away. What a blessing and gift Warm Beach is to the Snohomish County area!
Hacienda Village offers one of the nicest styles of 55+ living in the country at one of the lowest costs of ownership. Its manufactured homes are situated on winding lanes amid towering trees and green lawns. All homes are owned by their residents, although not all residents own a share in the community. Those who do own a coop share pay no space rent but only maintenance fees, which are reasonable. The community has two pools, a recreation hall, a clubhouse where larger functions are held, tennis court, and golf cart-friendly roads. Homes are generally well kept up. Approved pets are accepted. Shopping is nearby and healthcare services are reasonably close. Ownership requires approval by the coop board.
My father lived at Spring creek for over a year. He was independent with the exception of meds. He is a diabetic and gave himself his own injections but spring creek over saw his blood sugar levels and ordered his insulin. When my dad moved in the doctor faxed his orders to the RN.The doctors orders were obviously wrong. He had been taking 30 units of short acting insulin per day for 30 years yet the doctors orders said 3 units. My father continuously brought this to the RN's attention but failed to tell me. She claimed to have sent several faxes to the doctor on my dads behalf regarding his concern but when I asked her to produce those faxes she was unable to do so. My dad continued to take the correct dose of insulin which was much more than the doctor had ordered, and even though spring creek was not at fault for the wrong orders they failed to notice the discrepancy between what the doctors order were and how much insulin they were ordering for my father. On hand didn't know what the other hand was doing. If my father hadn't acted on his own behalf he could have gone into diabetic shock. When I began looking into this further the RN actually hid from me in her office and had an aid tell me she wasn't in there. I stood at the door waiting for her to return when she walked out of the office a few minutes later... she was very surprised and sheepish to see me. I believe that she was angry at me for calling attention to her mistake. A few days later my dad became so ill he needed to go to a nursing home and she held up the process by telling me that I would have to make the half hour drive to the nursing home to bring paperwork back and fourth because according to her it was illegal to fax his medical records back and fourth which was another lie. I believed her and asked her if all the paper work including nursing notes were there she said that they were when actually I thumbed through them before I left only to find non of her nursing notes where there. I would have had to drive back and fourth several times. I'd say it was a bad day except I have several more examples of the same type of thing on different days. I went to the management several times and the manager didn't seemed to be too alarmed by her behavior. If you or your parents are thinking of going there and they are fully independent I would say the it's fine but if you are relying on them for med management I wouldn't do it.
This has to be the worst nursing home in Washington. Understaffed, dirty, run down building, several administrative changes every few months its seems and they are on the national watch list...beware
I have had two relatives at Elmhurst in the last few years and both received exceptional care. My aunt needed to recover from a hip fracture and the therapy team was wonderful. She was able to successfully return home in less than three weeks. My grandmother had dementia/Alzheimer's and I cannot say enough about the kindness of the staff, from the housekeeper to the care assistants and nurses.
My mother was there for 3 weeks, had developed a severe UTI that became septic according to the hospital, had a severe rash on her groin & conjunctivitis (pink eye). Her tongue was white from not being swabbed as it should be and her Foley tube was no longer transparent as there was so much sediment in it. Twice in 2 weeks she had to be rushed to the Hospital because she was non-responsive. 1st time they also said her Peg line (feeding tube) was clogged because they weren't flushing it properly. I had brought up these concerns with the head of Rehab, head of Nursing & the floor supervisor as well as 4 of her nurses. Nothing was done. I also asked twice for a copy of the medications she was receiving, have yet to receive a that.
When my family and I were searching for an assisted living facility for my 92 year old Mom, we were impressed with the warmth and support that The Arbors offered us. We brought Mom to NY from Florida. She was evaluated and accepted into the facility. We paid The Arbors $13,000.Eleven days later the Arbors sent her to the hospital where she was treated for congestive heart failure. She was hospitalized for over two weeks. Nobody from The Arbors called to inquire as to the status of her health. Upon her release, she was sent to a rehab center where she recovered nicely. The same person who initially evaluated her came to the rehab. center to reevaluate her. This person is a former teacher---not a certified health professional. He rejected my mother and she was denied readmission to The Arbors. The Arbors kept the $13,000 and is legally entitled to do so. Our family had to find another facility for my Mom....We had trusted The Arbors. Their callous misrepresentation as a warm, caring "home" has been, to say the least, disappointing----and financially a shameful scam. DO NOT MOVE YOUR BELOVED RELATIVE INTO THIS FACILITY.
Compassionate staff, fabulous decor, my grandma really enjoys life at The Grand Victorian of Washington!
Looks very nice and spaces.
My mother was at Greenwood assisted living. She was treated badly by the owner of this facility. They moved her to a smaller room without informing the family. The new room was so small, there was barely enough space for a bed. I would not recommend this facility to anyone.
You cant go wrong when trusting the highly educated, experience,and compassionate staff and administrative group at Taraboro Nursing to care for your love ones. They go over and beyondat all times ensure that your love ones needs are met and they are in a safe and sanitary environment. Ss a former employee I would highly reccomend them to anyone who wants their love one to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. They will arewelcome you anhighlyd your love ones with open arms and you will be apart of their big family. If your seeking employment dont go unless your tryin to be apart of a winning team whose goals are to care for and meet the needs of the patients.
