  • No at all pleased!

    Our family was displeased with care our loved one received at Colonial Care Assisted Living. He had been there for 4 years. Below is recap of review: 1. Asked aide to place meals on bedside table, not on dining table, where resident was unable to walk over to reach. This was done some time but not always 2. Resident was not changed every two hours as originally stated. 3. Almost every day he had soiled bed sheets to be washed but they were not washed until a set time giving room a terrible urine smell. Family member had to take home and wash because of smell. 4. Fell 3 times. 5. Asked aide to change bandage on his left arm which he injured when he fell from bed – no one ever came to change bloody bandage while we were there. 6. His room frequently smelled of urine when members of family arrived to check on him because wet clothing and bed sheets were put in a clothing basket and left there until the employees washed only on certain days. 7. On two separate occasions, meds were found that had not been taken a. One was on bookcase headboard b. Another was in bed sheets on another occasion 8. Found journal where last blood pressure taken was recorded in January 2015. This was in June 2017 when journal was found on side of the apartment range. 9. When visiting one Sunday, we found the resident’s bed was totally wet with urine, as well as all his clothing. My family and I changed it all. 10. 84 year-old resident was left to sleep on bare, wood floor all night because aides said he refused to let them pick him up. We do not know how he got on floor from his wheelchair. 11. Family was unaware he had not seen a doctor at facility for some time until family made an appointment for him to see a doctor outside the facility. 12. There were four different directors in the 4 years the resident was there. But in all fairness, the present director, [name removed], is desperately trying to run the organization better than the 3 previous had done. 13. No one in the family can recommend this facility to anyone who really cares about their loved one.
