Review originally written on A Place For Mom

What you don't know

The Resident Care Associates (RCA) can be very aggressive when providing bathing care. Baby wipes are often used to wash instead of soap/water and wash cloths. Residents may have their own items provided by family members but they are not typically used. Residents are yelled at for trying to help remove clothes when it is time to change and when trying to exercise their independence. Residents are yelled at when they're on the phone with family members. When responding to complaints that the water was too hot, the RCA stated "She can take it." referring to the resident. While waiting for the shower water to warm up in another room, the resident was splashed with cold water several times by the RCA. Another resident was asked whether he wanted to take a shower because it was on the schedule. The resident asked when the last time he had a shower was and the RCA replied, "Remember you didn't like when I gave you a shower last time. You don't like it. Do you want to take a shower?" The resident responded, "Well, in that case, no." The RCA logged his response as a refusal. Residents were disturbed well into the night after they've fallen asleep for vacuuming and laundry, sometimes even showers that are supposed to be done prior to bed are delayed. Care provided at this facility is very different from what you see in the promotional videos or even during daylight hours. If your loved one lives here and requires any degree of assistance to help change clothes, bathe, or eat, be present often and see how they react when staff provides that "care." The food is standard elementary school cafeteria style, not the chef inspired meals advertised and charged for. Complaints have been filed on behalf of several residents.

Overall, great concept turning a motel into a senior living community. Rooms and activity rooms were sectioned off nicely. Dining area was really nice. Had various convenient stations for the community to use. Elevator for the 3 separate floors was available. Getting PT programs / person for the seniors.
