    Working this facility is awful. Poor management, nothing is never in order. The residents is what I feel the most sorry for. They could do better, literally.

    I was looking for a place to put my husband who has dementia and after caring for him for about 9 years at home I realized I needed help. After looking at a few places in Charlottesville, I found Commonwealth had the room space I needed since I would be there with him everyday. They told all the things that they offered and what they would do to fix the room as I wanted to make me feel that he was safe there. I moved him in the middle of June, after about 2 weeks I took him out because they had not lived up to their promises. Crazy me I took him back.  It only got worse. They have one lady that lived there that took most of the staffs time, she touched about all the  forks, knives and cups put on the tables, she would try to fight staff or throw them at them if they tried to stop them. They let everyone do their thing without letting staff correct them. I went 3 days in a row and they didn't even know which room or where my husband was. Some mornings he wouldn't even get the right amount of meds if I wasn't there. The cleaning was a joke, I told them not to come back I would clean myself. They are really short on staff, the staff never seemed to communicate with each other. I ended up having to pay a medicine bill for $97 that I never approved since I delivered all my husbands meds from home delivery, I was told every month they would take care of it and never did. It took me about 3 months to get with I was promised when I signed up there. Yes, I or my son was there everyday from about 9am to 6:30pm and I did everything for my husband because the staff couldn't hardly keep up with the others with all the other duties they had that had nothing to do with patient care except giving them the food furnished and cleaning up dining area. I would not recommend this place for anyone that cares about their loved ones when they can't do for themselves. Biggest mistake I ever made.

    My mother was independent living resident. They promised us a daily check in program to check on my mom if she didn't check in with them each day. They failed to do what they promised and my mother almost died because they left her trapped in bed for four days. She had no food, no water and was forced to soil herself. I FOUND HER BECAUSE THE STAFF DIDN'T DO THEIR JOB. The arbitrator in our lawsuit wrote that the incident was one which caused my mom "immeasurable injuries, physical pain, mental anguish, humiliation, embarrassment and inconvenience."  For more info inquire at [email protected].

    My family confidentially place my mother at CSL Charlottesville after her 1.5 yr struggle with dementia. The Administrative Team there could not have been more personal. They were professional AND real. Their dedication was overtly evident. Mom was there a month prior to the recent covid infiltration. My wife and I are RNs of 31 years and had worked in the ICU during the first covid wave for 9 months. We know first hand all the challenges, strain, and harsh realities the labor shortage and this virus brings. We also know what heroes look like. We saw them at CSL! The "We Care" moto was clearly present and in action through their dedication to care for these beautiful residents. Leadership stepped up and stepped in along side the amazing staff. They did their absolute best. My mother did pass during her time there, due to other medical factors. My family could not be more proud of the entire team that stuck it out. No regrets of bringing her there. I could continue for pages with details of our faith in this team. We know the physical and emotional exhaustion they were feeling but they did not show it to the residents or my family. God brought us to CSL, knowing the upcoming situation. It was as an answer to my family's prayer to truly care for mom. AND THEY DID! We are very grateful. I recommend CSL Charlottesville to whomever we can tell.
