Caution! If the Nurses Have to Work Hard for The Ones That Need Help, They'll Find a Way to Get You to Change Facilitie

They can only handle those who are placid. If anyone gets antsy or needs extra help they either send them to the hospital and tell the hospital they can't comeback or make you hire personal caregivers because they are "so busy". She needed to be checked to see if she had an UTI. The nurses didn't do it. After 4 days, I complained so the Marketing Director took care of it. They let her get out of the building. She made it to the Fire Department and they brought her back.

Some growing pains but overall a positive experience.

Overall it has been a positive experience, with some growing pains. Things aren't perfect but the staff are generally responsive, professional, and taking good care of my loved one. It is a huge improvement over the previous facility we tried, which was extremely understaffed.

Not great experience

They handle people with Dementia and there all aspects of Dementia. They say can take in these types of cases but they just end up sending those patients to the hospital and need to work on getting them assistance in house and not send those to hospital. I was advised they were good at redirecting but we constantly had issues, especially with the locked door system. My mother was able to get out of the facility and at one point walked to fire station. Overall was not pleased with the experience our family had with this facility.

Care for my M Mother-in-Law

We brought our loved one here at the end of her life when she was declining rapidly. We just wish we had brought her here sooner! They were very helpful with us transitioning to that end of life care. They were always there to help. We were able to stay with her and be with her, even during Covid. They would bring us trays of snacks and would check on us. They were just very caring.

Highly recommend

I chose Charter Senior Living because I was impressed with the staff interaction with the residents and it also seemed that they were better at maintaining and taking care of the property. They have an amazing activities director, she is over the top wonderful and she will bend over backwards on her day off to help. They have a great group of staff members who work here. The director is very responsive to any questions or concerns that I have. I would definitely recommend them to others.

[name removed] was thorough and gracious. Did not rush me. Took as much time as necessary. Tour was great considering we are just beginning to allow nonresidents inside nursing homes. She provided staff to answer my additional questions. Left feeling I had adequate information to make a decision concerning them.

As close to home as she can get

My mom has a neurodegenerative disease and wasn't getting proper care at home, Charter's staff have worked extensively with me and my mom in making the leap, quickly, and helping her adjust. The facility is homey- set up like a house with a sun-room, interior courtyard, nice rooms, nice showering area, etc. The staff are always trying to build relationship with her and keep her active and safe. I am thankful for Charter's business model that has some flexibility, the CNA's, RN's, Adm. staff, Activity director, and the Executive Directors. I hope they continue and that the staff are paid very well and are properly staffed to care for the needs so that they do not injure themselves when lifting and moving the loved ones. Food needs improvement...hopefully in the future!

So Thankful

It was a difficult decision to move our mom into memory care...Charter Senior Living Vernon Hills helped every step of the way. This is a kind and caring place. Fresh, airy and as close to a "family home" as you can get. The team - nurses, caregivers, activities personnel, and management are lovely. My mom's days are filled with thoughtful activities, care and joy. So thankful for Charter Senior Living Vernon Hills.
