Always on top of their game

As a provider for Bayshore, I am always so impressed at how much effort they put into providing the highest possible standard of care--in every way. To not have a single COVID case is a real testament to how hard they have worked to enforce very tough procedures during such a difficult time. The level of individual care and catering to each resident's need is a beautiful and rare quality that is so unique to Bayshore.

Bayshore Guest Home is a true welcoming comfortable Home. The residents are happy, safe and above all love their home. Care is tender and appropriate with the option of in home consulting speciality physicians. [name removed] is a constant advocate for her community over the past 10 years which is a great part of their success. Keep up the great work.

Wonderful Care

I am an RN providing Medicare visits and have my own Care Management business. I have both referred and cared for several residents in this wonderful assisted living. The bar is high for care and kindness with all who reside. The staff is well educated and the Administrator is so very involved in all if the details of the personalized day to day care that each resident receives. I highly recommend this unique and outstanding assisted living. It is in a class of it s own. The safety and extra attention to infection control during this Pandemic has been meticulous! Thank you [name removed] and staff for all you do and for proving that the bar can still remain this high.

We fell in love with Bayshore

This is a follow-up review to what I wrote in 2016. We were fortunate to find Bayshore in 2014. Mom had nearly died in her home. There was something wrong with her health, but she refused to move out of her home. After the fall, rehab, and a "mental acuity" examination, it was determined that Mom needed an ALF. We toured several places and fell in love with Bayshore. There was, and still is, a feeling there between the employees and the residents that was absent at the other two large facilities we toured. It was love. Bayshore has had a lot of turnover of employees during the last six years as I observed (Telephone calls and onsite visits) Bayshore from afar. (WE live in another part of the state of Florida.) There have also been long term employees like [name removed], who we now consider a friend. Why the turnover? This is a tough industry. The employees care for people everyday who are going to die. Mom was on Tidewell Hospice three times. She "graduated" from hospice twice. She rebounded to a fair level of activity and awareness twice. But not the 3rd time. My mother passed away on [date removed] at the age of 92 of natural causes. She had been in Bayshore for over 6 years. We believe Mom was well taken care of during her time there. Mom considered Bayshore her home. The Administrator, [name removed], is very tough. She runs the place. She manages the employees, who are required to meet high patient care standards. She also herds the resident families as they struggle with what to do for their loved one. She can be called at all hours, day or night, on her cell phone. Sometimes she has called us in the evening to discuss issues related to Mom. If [name removed] has a major flaw, it is that she falls in love with all her residents. Each resident becomes her own family member. She hurts when they hurt. When a resident dies and the family grieves, so does she. If you are looking for a safe and secure place for your failing loved one, then I highly recommend Bayshore Guest House & Gardens.

Great care for your loved one!

There are no words that express how thankful we are that we were fortunate enough to find Bayshore for my husband’s mother. She has been living there for 3 years now and I Can honestly say we have never had a single concern or complaint. Our loved one is cared for and loved as if she were family! We are so grateful for the staff and for [name removed] who always has the residents needs as her number one priority. Since moving in my mother-in-law, My sister has also used Bayshore as a respite for her husband and my mom’s husband will be a new resident within the month. I highly recommend Bayshore for anyone considering small, safe and family style care!

The BEST Small, Personable, Safe, and Caring Assisted Living Facility in the Area!

[name removed] is the administrator and does an outstanding job managing this wonderful small (16 or so resident) assisted living facility. She cares deeply about the care her staff provides to all the residents there. The facility is clean, comfortable, home-like, and safe and is in a beautiful location with a park-like back patio and garden area. Our mom (88) has been here for over 1.5 years and is a bit of a handful, having survived multiple strokes. She needs round the clock care and handling, cannot walk or feed herself, and can barely speak. ALL the staff at Bayshore take incredible care of her and me and my family have zero worries about her at this awesome facility. We could not be happier with Bayshore and the services they provide. If you are looking for a smaller well run assisted living facility for your loved one, you just found it. I am 62 and if or when my time comes, I would gladly stay at Bayshore!

Our Mom has been living at Bayshore for about a year and a half now. She loves it there. Upon her first visit she asked us if she could stay there. She is happy and we are thrilled! We have the peace of mind knowing mom is being well taken care of.

I met with the owner and she has a wonderful family style home atmosphere with 11 rooms. The owner is involved in the daily operation and takes a great deal of pride in making sure her residents are well cared for. Depending on the type of environment you are looking for this may be a very good fit. It is very different from traditional facilities.

A New Terrific Home for Mom

My Mother is a recent resident at Bayshore Guest Home & Gardens and she loves it, and she is being very well cared for!! [Name removed], the director, does a terrific job of making sure everyone is well cared for, and she does an amazing job of making sure everyone in the family has clear communications on a regular basis. [Name removed] has hired a terrific staff, and they all make the facility more like a home then a facility! We made the best decision to have Mom be a resident at Bayshore.

Bayshore is the absolute BEST in the area!

Placed our mom here in Feb. 2019 after she made my brother and I swear to never place her in a "home." She has never complained a single day since then and is content and well taken care of with Bayshore's great and friendly staff. We love the small size of this facility and from the owner to administrator on down through the staff, they treat mom (87) like a truly valued human and client and make her feel at home. They love her personality and sense of humor (even though she can barely speak after suffering strokes and who cannot walk on her own). Bayshore's administrator, [name removed], is a truly caring person who is available 24/7 and will contact you if she or her staff have any concerns about your loved one. My brother and I could NOT be happier with Bayshore and the wonderful services they provide.

A Home away from Home

This is the best place in the World! Their administrator has more than met my expectations. The fact that they have more than one staff per person is so comforting for me leaving my loved one. I have been to many places interviewing and for me, their the best in the area. The Administrator is on call 24-7 this means everything to me... as you know how hard it is to leave loved ones behind.

Hands-on personalized care

I visit Bayshore several times a week and I am always so impressed with the amount of staff on duty giving individualized care to the residents. It is truly a unique and loving environment. I visit toward the end of lunch and the beautiful home cooked food from the kitchen makes me want to pull up a chair and join them for lunch! Takes me back to my childhood where something was always cooking in the oven. I also love how the families of the residents are always there visiting and interacting with the residents. They are clearly an important part of the Bayshore family and it is obvious they feel welcome and completely at home there too. I highly recommend Bayshore to anyone who is looking for a place for their family where they will receive personalized attention. Because Bayshore is small and intimate, no one falls through the cracks or feels like "a number." Everyone is hands on and this starts at the top. The Administrator actively oversees everything and is personally accessible to everyone. I have never seen a facility like this before. It is truly one of a kind. It is no surprise to me that they are voted #1 every year. Keep up the good work and thank you for setting such a high standard. So refreshing to see people who really care about all the little details that make such a difference.

A home.

I work in the industry and am extremely impressed with the Administrator [name removed] and the staff. The Residents are very well cared for and her knowledge of medication and geriatric conditions as well as communicating with all 3rd party medical personnel is in the benefit of the residents. I highly recommend Bayshore and hope that there will be more smaller communities that will follow their model of aging in place.

Amazing Facility

I cannot begin to tell you the anxiety I felt the first time I placed my husband in Respite care. I am his caretaker, I am supposed to be strong and able to do the job. I felt immense guilt and sadness. Happily, I chose Bayshore guest home, and had the opportunity to work with [name removed] and her wonderful staff who welcomed my husband and I with open arms, wonderful support, as well as all the essential needs we had. [Name removed] is not only the director, but endearing emotional support, and a kind, listening ear for the caregivers well. The care the guests receive at bayshore is excellent. [Name removed] and the staff run a tight ship. As a nurse my self, I can say the attention to detail to the individual guest is far better than any hospital setting we have encountered. The facility is a small intimate setting, with activities daily for the guests. Eventually Bayshore will be our permanent home, but for now, It is our temporary respite home of choice!

Like no other place we visited. We love the staff and the home atmosphere

My mother and I toured many facilities before we toured Bayshore Guest Home & Gardens for my Dad. When I walked through the door I immediately had a different feeling. Bayshore felt more like a home to me rather than a “ facility” it was bright and sunny totally unlike any other place we visited. When we met with Leslie the administrator, her focus was on my Dad she talked to him like she was having a normal conversation with anyone. It felt comforting for us, he was treated like a person not a patient. The Bayshore staff I can’t say enough about, I have never ever seen any resident being treated with anything other than respect and love. My mother and I have grown quite close to the staff and really can’t express enough about our thankfulness for their loving care. They truly care and for that we will forever be grateful. Bayshore is clean, homey and they dine together like a family. If you are looking for a small boutique style living environment then Bayshore is your place. Thank you [name removed] and your staff for the wonderful care my Dad is receiving. We are forever indebted to you.
