Good Independent Living Facility, Poor Assisted Living Care

My mother was a resident of Cortona Park for 7 years 3 months. She entered Cortona as independent living and enjoyed her beautiful apartment, staff, food, and the friends she made along the way. Things changed after she lived there just about a year when she fell in the bathroom and severely shattered her leg. Upon her return after 3 months in skilled nursing rehabilitation she required max point care giving which moved her her from independent to assisted living. In the 7 years she was in Cortona the facility had excessive staff turnover; 3 executive directors came and went, at least 250 caregivers and kitchen workers, and a half dozen Chefs. In that period the one constant has been the LVN medical director, which I believe has been the driver of constant attrition of caregivers who are underpaid, overextended, poorly trained and mis managed . The sad part is that Cortona has hired some really excellent people along the way, most unfortunately don't stay. After 7 years we had to move my 95 year old mother into skilled nursing because 2 new & inexperienced Cortona caregivers dropped my mother on the floor while attempting to get her into the shower, breaking her good leg and reinjuring the leg she broke 6 years earlier; two broken legs. She will be in bed the reminder of her lifetime because of our experience at Cortona Park. My observations are based on my daily presence in Cortona over the 7 years.

Feeling good about my Mom moving to Cortona Park

My mother has been living at Cortona Park for around 3 months. It took time to find new doctors and follow thru with appointments. The staff at Cortona Park were and are very understanding and helpful thru the process. Staff has found a balance between encouragement to participate in activities and understanding the transition process of relocating far from er home. I have confidence that my mother will continue to make new friends and participate in more events as time goes on. The caregivers are great. They have a joy about giving assistance and not being forceful. The med techs are wonderful. The professionalism and attention to detail assures safety. It is a big relief to be able to count of professionals to take care of my Mom's medications. The procedures are in place and followed so nothing falls thru the cracks.

Nice apartment, questionable food

I’m writing this as a daughter whose parents are at the community. People are friendly and very accommodating. I’ve heard residents say ill spouses are well taken care of. The biggest problem is the food. It’s understandable that a low sodium diet is necessary, but to have chicken and beef over-cooked and dry is not. My parents go out to eat rather than eat there. No variety of food, and poorly prepared. My mother is starting to refuse to eat there due to some meals being so poor. Residents complained to my parents about the boring and tasteless food. I felt the spaghetti was good, and desserts are tasty as well. Breakfasts are very good as one can order what is desired . This is a shame as the location and apartments are very nice. Not many travel trips as folks get tired after a few hours. But the shuttle takes people to appointments, and shopping.

The staff appeared friendly. Community seemed older, but improvements were being made. Liked that it had a pool. Also had a slight smell to it. Liked that the residents were planning a fundraiser for a charity.

Not the right fit afterall

I was here for about 2 months but decided to move back home. This place was kept clean daily. The food wasn't bad they would just run out of it sometimes. They did have other options. The staff was nice and helpful. I just needed a service they couldn't provide. I would recommend this community for a more active person.

My visit

This is a large community and I think it would be wonderful for younger residents. The community is clean and the staff I met were friendly. I would suggest taking a look at this community.

She's happy there but..

She's not really delighted with the food. She doesn't like how bland it is. She said the housekeeping does an adequate job but it could be better. Those are the only two complaints she's had. She's getting involved in activities and seems happy. We chose this community because it is close to family and makes visiting easier.
