This facility doesn't even deserve one star. They were no visitations allowed during the covid 19, so the only to keep up how my dad was as doing, was to call him on his cell phone. Some days my dad wouldn't even see anyone except for when they gave him his food. Three weeks into his stay there, he gets a stomach ache and diarrhea. I called the facilities front desk and they said three times that "he's fine". Second day with him having diarrhea after I talked to my dad and calling their front desk again, they called 911. Ambulance came and took him to the hospital. Autumn Breeze didn't know which hospital they took him too. I had to find that information on my own. He was at Wellstar Cobb Hospital. Had diarrhea for 10 days, finally stool sample was tested and it was food poisoning from Autumn Breeze. Autumn Breeze will hold a patient's bed space for one week. Since my dad was at the hospital for over a week, he couldn't go back to Autumn Breeze, which I really didn't want him going back there. There aren't any open beds at any other facilities except for one place. N.E. Sandy Springs Rehab, too much out of pocket expense, so I had to take him into my home. Now trying to juggle work and taking care of him. My final thought on Autumn Breeze is that they should be shut down or have a new management and staffing people.
I am currently here for a short term. This is my first time being in a place like this. The entire building has a smell that you cannot get away from. This is an old building that is not in good shape and the management does not care about the proper cleaning of rooms or hallways. Some of the staff are good but most are not. The management does not care about the staff or the long term very sick people that are here. The food is always cold with no taste. I have pushed my call light and waiting for as long as 1 hour and 10 minutes for someone to come. I would not put my family member or a friend in this facility. Not safe. Management needs to be changed.
This place is pretty good,for nursing home.food's nothing to write home about but usually edible and nutirtious but they do answer the call lights. Good people. Mostly but unfortunately they sometimes just don't show up to work and landed there always shorthanded one star seems like a generous amount when applied it to Autumn Breeze to
My mother was admitted in July of 2020 with dementia. She was walking and eating on her own. Within 2-3 weeks she was admitted to the hospital for dehydration and high sodium levels. She never walked again. She was admitted again in December for the same symptoms and passed a week later in hospice. It was hard getting in contact with the nurse and doctor and they never gave me acceptable answers as to why that happened twice. The staff is very unprofessional and show a lack of compassion. My mother deserved better. A horrible experience.
IF AT ALL POSSIBLE - DO NOT, I REPEAT..... DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONE TO THIS FACILITY!!!!! Unfortunately, at the time we didn't have much choice because our loved one was Covid positive and not many facilities were accepting new patients with Covid.This place has THE worst communication of ANY place I have ever tried getting information from. I can ONLY hope that they treat the patients waaayyyyy better than they do the family members, trying to find out information regarding their loved ones.They allowed my grandmother, who is diagnosed with dementia, to either fall from her bed or she tried to get out of the bed (with a broken femur - of which she doesn't remember she has, because of the dementia) but they found her on the floor around 1:00pm and she did not get x-rayed until sometime during the middle of the night that night (completely unacceptable) According to the facility she didn't break anything, but we as a family would have felt a lot better if they had taken her to the hospital for x-rays. It is also ABSOLUTLEY ridiculous that when you call to speak to your loved one that they only have ONE phone for ALL residents...... AND that when you call it takes them several HOURS or NEVER to return your phone call!! It's like they are trying to hide from you what is going on with your family member...... and why would that be, if the things they were doing to "care" for my family member were on the up and up, why wouldn't they want to communicate that information with us....?Again, If you have any other option for your loved one, take my advise and Do NOT send them to this place!!
My mother was in Autumn Breeze since May 2020. At first I thought she was getting great care, but I also couldn’t visit because of Covid. On Thanksgiving she was taken to hospital because she was dehydrated and her sodium and potassium levels were off. Then she was released from hospital. On Friday December 18 she was taken to the hospital unresponsive and had a UTI. I received a call from doctor that they were releasing her on Monday after giving her IV antibiotics and she went back to Autumn Breeze on Monday with oral antibiotics. On the next Sunday night, I get calls from Autumn Breeze saying they were sending her to the hospital with shortness of breath. Then the doctor from hospital calls me within 15 minutes and said she came in with a high fever and very sick. She passed within 15 minutes from being at hospital from sepsis. She had been at Autumn Breeze that week and I’m assuming she was getting the antibiotic, but it must not of been helping her. They let her stay there just getting worse and I know sepsis starts quick. But to pass within 15 minutes of being at hospital then they haven’t checked on her. I would never use this facility again.
I was very disappointed in this healthcare center. Many times my mother was without water, her controls to call the nurses, adjust her bed, or her TV controls were out of reach of not even available. I found her with feces on her bottom on more than one occasion. The meat that they ground or chop up tasted burned. However, all the other food had a pleasant flavor. A lot of times she was cold and since she was not able to walk on her own she couldn't nor would she be able to remember how to operate the heat controls and on top of that they placed her in a room where the other patient was very hot natured. Not in a room where both patients are cold natured. Some of her clothes were missing and nurse found them in multiple rooms (we did the laundry ourselves and the clothes should have been put in her laundry bag that I furnished). In addition, the laundry bag, which had her name on it, was missing. When you have a patient confined to the bed or a chair and there is no supervision in the room, all the controls and alarms should be close by. One time, when I got there, she had tried to get up out of the bed, was half on the bed and the floor hollering hurry, hurry when I got into the room. I couldn't put her on the bed by myself. I pushed the alarm, nothing. No one came to help. The light was on in the room, the light was on out the outside of the room. I ran to the nurses station and they said the alarm wasn't showing on their panel. No telling how long this had been going on. In addition, if something goes wrong they do not have staff on the weekends to fix problems. Unbelievable. I will say this, there were two, one nurse and one CA that did the very best they could do under the circumstances. They were great to my mom and I really appreciate their help. However, two individuals can't take care of all the patients. Update: Mom came home on Saturday 2/28 and was in the hospital Tuesday morning with Healthcare related pneumonia. In addition, she also has a UTI which they were supposed to be giving her medication to help control chronic UTIs. When I got to Autumn Breeze on Saturday to take her home (I was told she had to be picked up by 11:00) she wasn't ready. She was still sleeping and the nurses did not know she was going home. DO NOT LET YOUR LOVE ONES BE TAKEN TO THIS PLACE!!!!!!!
