Look deeper if you need more than independent living

First impressions can be deceiving. We had done the tours, due diligence and planned to bring our mom here. But it appears there is a lot of dissatisfaction within the staff and a management group that is constantly turning the staff. Over the past few months they have turned over at least 30-50% of the staff with a new director that seems disinterested in keeping educated, experienced staff in deference to less expensive caregivers. In speaking to some of the staff, there seems to be some who genuinely enjoy and care for the residents for whom they work. However, there also seems some infighting or jealousies that are problematic. Leaving an incontinent patient for the next shift to take care of instead of immediately taking care of the resident is an issue. The ownership group seems more interested in the bottom line than the memory care seniors. We decided to go elsewhere with mom.

Appearances can be deceptive

While the common areas are beautiful, the experience of living at Balfour Riverfront never comes close to matching the appearance. Senior management attitude towards service seems to be: provide the minimum they can get away with, glad-hand the residents, and make promises they have no intention of following through on. Staff can occasionally be wonderful, but they never seem to last; turnover is very high leading to poor morale. It seems they treat the dining room (which is beautiful) as a cost center and seek to minimize their expenses, serving barely edible food with surprisingly bad service. Balfour Riverfront is a bit of a mystery, because so much potential is wasted. The common areas are stunning, but service is extremely frustrating, quality of the apartment finish is poor (especially carpeting), and the whole experience leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
