  • Extra Special Care

    Barathaven provided extra special care especially during this Covid-19 crisis. They Helped families stay in touch with Facetime and calls. Unfortunately my Mother in Law passed away 3 weeks after moving in but they really helped us, they packed up her things and brought them to our front porch. They also helped us arrange to donate and auction off some of her things to benefit the Alzheimer's foundation. A Place for Mom was exceptional in helping us find a community that specialized in Memory Care. I just wish I had found them sooner. I would like to thank my advisor [name removed], was outstanding. I just wish I could give her a big hug.

  • Memory Care @Barathaven

    The staff are so nice here. They treat the residents like family. They have more patience than anywhere we’ve been they are well trained in Alzheimers’s care. Not to say everything and everyone is perfect but about 99%. Some of my husbands clothes have been missing for weeks and haven’t been found. The residents sometimes go into other rooms and pick up things but that can be expected bc they don’t know what they’re doing that stuff makes it’s way back to owner. Activity director is awesome. I would recommend this place bc my husbands behavior is so good here bc of care. They deal with difficult residents very well. The food could be improved otherwise it’s great here. I should know. Been 5 places before here. He’s in private room

    My dad has resided in Barathaven for nearly 2 and a half years. During this time, I can say that many caregivers and nurses took as good of care as they could based on high turnover and constant understaffing. High turnover and understaffing falls solely on the Administration. My interactions with the care staff has always been positive, and keeping my dad’s care as a top priority up until this week. This week, I had the misfortune of meeting with [name removed], LPN. Unfortunately, the winter/spring illness swept through the facility and my father came down with a fever and pneumonia. Because of his age, it took some time but he was finally eating. I live out of state but was getting daily updates from my brother and also spent over 6 hours with him at Barathaven on the weekend of [date removed]. I saw him eat an entire plate of eggs and sausage with no help swallowing fine and regaining his appetite. He also drank a 8 oz beverage in it’s entirety. He was joking and laughing this weekend. However he was still weak from days in bed. Unfortunately, on [date removed], he fell getting up from a chair at lunch and had to have an hip replacement. He returned to Barathaven on [date removed]. Because Barathaven is not a skilled care facility, has only LPN and not RN staff, he could not return with his feeding tube. I drove in over 400 miles from out of state to visit. I was not understanding his wife’s decision to not place him into an interim facility where he could still have an IV and feeding tube until he regained strength, could rehab, and regained his appetite for solid food. I know my dad has always hated going under anesthesia because he states if affects him for days. This would have been exasperated because of his weakened state. I entered his room to find my sister already pleading with his wife to give him a chance and pleading with my mother to try to let him eat/drink. I probably should not have entered but it is hard not to after a seven and a half hour drive. [Name removed] did not allow my sister to continue to speak to my mother. It was an emotionally charged situation between family members. Although I got my mom to calm down after [name removed] and a third sister left the room, and the situation was de-escalated...[name removed] kept inserting herself into a family matter and speaking on items that she should not have. In this matter, [name removed] did not remain neutral, and in fact was more of a pot stirrer than anything. [Name removed] could not put her ego and meddling ways aside. I literally would be making a plea to give my dad a chance to recover and [name removed] would yell from the door that my dad can not leave Barathaven “he is not going anywhere”. THAT is plain crazy. He literally was just transported to Barathaven the day before. He could just as easily be transported to an interim skilled care facility where he could have the IV and feeding tube. It is not [name removed]’s place to interject. Every time my dad would start to become lucid, instead of allowing him to communicate....[Name removed] would encourage more sedation and Morphine. [Name removed] told me that my dad had not been lucid the entire time he had been in Barathaven. That is plain false. My dad regularly joked with me and the staff. Come to find out...[Name removed] had only worked there since [date removed]. Two weeks...and my dad had been recovering from pneumonia before he broke his hip. Barathaven failed my father by providing him the most heartless LPN who meddles in family matters and does not have any people skills. It is so sad that during my dad’s final days....the staff at Barathaven (Nurse [name removed]) is more for euthanasia than trying to get a resident to recover.
