I live in Germany and have not been able to see my mother in person for a year now. The Nursing Center has not only made sure I get a weekly FaceTime with my mom, they also miraculously helped her survive Covid-19. We are so grateful for their transparency, reliability & compassion. We are, indeed, very lucky to have our mother reside under their current care. Thank you to each and every one of you.
A nice facility with a competent staff. They desperately need to fix the elevators, though. Your elderly loved one will need strength and stamina to negotiate the stairs or take the long walk down to the service elevator because the main elevators malfunction on a regular basis.
My mother lived there for several years until she passed. She was always busy and enjoying all the activities. I find it hard to believe that there would be another home that was as caring or loving. People who I loved, that loved my mother. I thank them for being there when I needed that extra hug. Not only for my mother but for me. Our Lady of Peace was and will always be my extended family.
Person who's father was removed should have contacted ombudsman for assistances. Part of JABA team. Can be contracted thru them. I'm a former ombudsman. Was there this week for census verification. Administrator meet me at door yell that she was tired of us coming around. Do to Covin-19 I can understand not wanting anyone inside building. I only needed to verify if one person was living in a particular room. Or was it Vacant. Did not even need their name. Refused to answer my question or give me her name. When she saw I was not going to back down she finally yelled out her name. Was not impressed with professionalism. Cooperation with census personnel is required by federal law and is part of the US Constitution.
Please do extensive research when you are in need of placing a loved one into a facility. I would advise you to not choose this facility. My father was there for approximately one year. I'm a registered nurse in this line of business so I am very familiar with the way this type of care and how it should be administered. Multiple families with in this facility in the last 60 days have reported them to the state. One particular patient had black mold growing in her room. We had a private room for my dad. And I can assure you the $7500 that we were paying a month he was not receiving $7500 worth of care. This facility promote some selves to be a five-star facility and you will never receive five star care. The staff that provide the one on one care do not have proper training and caring for memory impairment patients. When you question the upper management in regards to this type of stuff you are calling upon deaf ears. I would visit my father and find him in three day old clothes, covered in feces, caked in his fingernails, saturated with urine, poop stains all over the carpet in his room as well as urine stains. On one particular visit I was verbally told by a CNA that they would not provide my father care. The following morning I went in and found him in his bed while all other residents were up to the table eating and he was covered in feces then as well. On this particular occasion when it was elevated to a ministration they decided they no longer wanted my father to be there in which I was in agreement as well. Having the social worker work with us in a timely manner to find another facility that can provide him with care that offered a private room didn't happen. Instead I was given a phone call on a Sunday morning at 8:30 to inform me they were calling 911 on my father for a mental status change. Upon arriving to the hospital after significant testing everything came back negative. With this abrupt change in his living situation this caused him to have medications administered that his body was not used to nor could handle. Their actions or just a ploy to have him discharged quicker without a long-term discharge plan in place. I know this is a long review but I just want you to know a small example of what we went through with this facility so that no other patient or family has to endure what our family has gone through with this facility.
Don’t let your loved ones bring jewelry, or anything of value to this facility. Over the past couple years my grandmother has lived here several of her valuables have gone missing, including diamond earrings, silverware, and necklaces. The staff obviously denied having anything to do with it. Very disturbing, considering you pay so much and accept your loved ones to be in a safe and trustful environment.
My nana doesn't want to be named but the biggest problem she had in that place was the food and the management behind the food, she said it was an older fellow there named Alex who always ignored her special requests for food, she noticed when she was there before she passed, that the days he was there the food seemed rubbery and cold and just down right disgusting, other days they were better, she believed before she passed that a management change was needed because whoever Alex is, he seemed too relax and nonchalant about everything, almost like a good mean for an elderly person wasn't important.
Horrible facility! They overpromise and under deliver. Not to mention the times that I came to visit he was covered in feces as was his room saturated with urine all over the floor. This was not the only patient that was found in this situation. Multiple other families have reported them to the state within the last 30 to 60 days. My poor father had to stay there for almost a year. Because my father did not fit the typical cookie cutter dementia patient they wanted him out because of his ambulatory status. Instead of working diligently with our family because we were in agreement to find him another facility to reside in that would offer a private room they called 911 and claimed he had an altered mental status change. Upon arrival to the hospital every single last one of his test were negative. This was their way of dumping my father with no solid discharge plan in place! Due to the quick change in his environment multiple different medications were given to him and his body did not tolerate them well which sent him into a rage of agitation with a seven day hospital stay. I am a nurse myself and in this direct line of work in Florida. I just want everyone to know the care that he received at this facility and in no way shape or form was it up to a five star standard of care or a $7500 a month payment fee to live there. Please be mindful when you’re doing your research for your loved ones to look for long-term care and not choose this facility!
