My Parents have been looking for a place to possibly retire too as my Father is now retired and step mother is soon to follow. They are getting to an age where they would rather focus on traveling and living the life they want, not the life they are confined to at home. Managing all the yardwork, taking care of the house, preparing all their meals, etc. At Bonaventure, that is taken care of for them and they no longer have to worry about anything else! In our experience in dealing with the staff, they have been nothing but professional and courteous to us. The cost might be a little higher than other retirement communities, but the way I see it, you are getting so much more value for the price you are paying. When they are ready, I am recommending that Bonaventure be the place for them!

This is a true account of incidents that occurred at Bonaventure and is in no way meant to disparage anyone involved but, to educate them and hope they do better to make Bonaventure meet its potential to be a really great place to live...Until then...On July 9th my mother was prescribed nebulizer treatment four times daily for her COPD. She had a bad cough and her O2 levels have been in the low 80s. I called Bonaventure on the 14th to verify that she was getting the treatments. They said their pharmacy—Omnicare—had sent the medication, but not the actual nebulizer and had also failed to inform Bonaventure that they don’t supply nebulizers. Apparently, it wasn’t important enough at Bonaventure to track down a machine until I called them on the 14th, nearly a week after the order. I asked them what they were going to do about it and they finally called the Doctors Clinic and got an order to Lincare for a nebulizer to be delivered to Bonaventure. I would think Bonaventure’s head nurse would have seen the order and done whatever it took to get a nebulizer without waiting nearly a week. I realize that staff people are busy, but COPD is very serious. When an order for medication is received, I expect everyone involved in my mother’s care to scramble to get it to her. They told me she “might get some today, or maybe tomorrow.” She missed several days of a medication she needed four times daily. To breathe. I expect this to be Priority One in the triage pecking order. On July 16th, she received her first nebulizer treatment, a full week after the order was given. On Thursday, July 31st, my mother’s prescription for Duoneb, administered by nebulizer four times daily, was discontinued and replaced by Dr. Prakash at Salem Pulmonary Associates with a Ventolin inhaler. The hand written order sent to Bonaventure was illegible, as per the cliché. On Monday, August 4th, I asked a Bonaventiure nurse if the Duoneb had in fact been replaced by the Ventolin. She said she didn’t think so, because no one at Bonaventure could read Dr. Prakash’ hand writing. They had had Thursday afternoon and all day Friday, plus the weekend, to call SPA and get the prescription clarified, but as of Monday at around 5PM, no one had done so. The nurse said she’d call him, but I did it myself in order to be certain it got done. There are other incidents and examples.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
