  • Great care - unexcusable management

    Mother was at the Dignity Home on Rader Pass in April, 2018 . She was there a week. During that time she was given the best care she could be given considering her circumstances (she was near death). Our beef is not with the care that she was given, but with the financial grief given us by the administration. My sister was the legal power of attorney & paid for April up front as was agreed. Sister was about to leave on a trip & would not return until May, so wanted to be sure that Dignity Homes was paid previous to her departure. She post dated a check for May [date removed]. Mother was taken from Dignity on April [date removed] & died on April [date removed]. On April [date removed], the May check's date was altered to April [date removed] and was cashed. Sister tried via phone calls, texts & emails to get the money back. She was told that half would be sent at a time. Sister was sent a check, went to bank to cash it only to find out that it was declined for insufficient funds. Calls, texts & emails continued to no avail. To this day ([date removed]) the money has never been returned to Mother's account!

  • Owner does not honor her offers

    I contacted [name removed] about caring for my Mother who has Alzheimer's and my Grandmother who is elderly. I was given a rate which she stated was discounted and I felt it was fair. I was told that she had a master bedroom for my Mom and Grandma to share in a home she would be reopening. It sounded perfect and I felt it would be a good fit. I went to view the home and it was not bad...a little rough in spots but overall seemed acceptable. I was told that one person was there for six hours in the morning and another for six hours after that and then a final person would be there for an overnight shift. I felt comfortable with that. What happened next was inexcusable. I was shown the home by two ladies...one of which had a very strong tobacco odor. I was told to contact [name removed] by text as that was the way I had been in contact with her to discuss details. I was told while touring that Kristy sometimes likes to put additional people in the room with your loved one and if you refuse she will raise your rent. I had concerns about this and reached out. I stated, "just to confirm we would be renting the master bedroom for the agreed upon price for my Mom and Grandma." She then replied that she had been rethinking that and would put them in the room of her choosing. That is unacceptable. I was given a rate for the master bedroom. She then told me she would have to raise the rate if she put them there because of the discount she gave me. It is unacceptable and very poor business to change the terms of your offer after considering your profit margin. No good businessperson with ethics offers someone something and then takes it away. How could you trust someone to care for your loved ones if they will not even honor the rate that they initially gave you. She also told me she would move them where she saw fit. Um, excuse me? People rent a particular room for an agreed upon rate, she does not get to change terms willy nilly. I would advise to get everything in writing if you choose to do business with her. Normally, I would not bother to review. But I must say, it speaks to someone's character if they choose to take advantage of somebody who is trying to care for their loved ones in a difficult time. She should not offer rates and rooms if she is not going to honor the price and she should not waste people's time who are dealing with such major decisions like putting their parents or grandparents in a personal care home.

  • Best residential care home by far

    I had my dad at one of their locations and we are so at peace with our decision. We toured about 10 places and he lived at two others before meeting [Removed] and making our decision. He had been there for two years before he passed. The compassion and professionalism of the staff is top notch. I can't say enough how they have all gone above and beyond to make this easy for him and for our entire family, even as far as letting the grand kids come over as much as they want. If you are looking for a home environment, this is it. A side note, I do know the gentleman that posted the only negative review and sadly, the situation was such that no matter what the staff did he was never content, which is understandable because it was his wife but the review isn't a fair assessment of the situation, the staff, the nursing care or the home. Make your own decision based on your families needs.
