  • Five Star Premier Residences Of Yonkers

    The community is pretty clean. The staff is usually pretty good. The floor nursing staff is excellent and are very friendly and responsive. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the people who were in charge of coordinating services like PT or OT, weren't very responsive to our requests, especially since our loved one had some very particular needs. The actual individuals giving the care have been quite good. Sometimes they are slow to communicate with us regarding changes in our loved one's care. Also before the pandemic, they were always featuring resident's art in the common areas of the community. They do seem to have attracted a good variety of different kinds of programming available for the residents. They seem to be a little weak in the memory care services area. They do have a memory care department, although they really were not well equipped to deal with the needs associated with memory care. For those who are more mobile, this would community would be a good fit. But, for those who need a higher level of care, perhaps not.

    The times I've been there it's been very clean. The staff is very friendly. The care is very good. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there have been a lot of ups and downs and the community is on lock down. We felt at first they were a little slow to update us on the status of the community, but they have gotten better over time. My father loves the food. He doesn't partake much in the activities, but they do offer them for the residents. My father has his own room and needed some more care throughout the night so we needed to hire an additional aid with him. One aid in particular has been great with keeping up with him and letting us FaceTime us. We looked at a couple communities and brought my father up from Florida, and we were very happy up until this pandemic. We don't necessarily think it is the fault of the community, however, as this has been a very difficult time for everybody.

    When I was looking for a community for my mom, I visited several places in the area, and Five Star had the nicest environment, was the most updated, and felt like the closest approximation to a luxury apartment building. Also, Five Star was willing to assessment my mom, work with us, and accommodate her unique set of the needs. The nursing and administrative staff have been very friendly in accommodating our requests as well. They have nice amenities available for the residents including a gym, beautiful library, and a business center with computers and printers to use. The food is adequate, They offer a restaurant style dining experience with menus and a hostess. The dining staff are aware of each residents likes and dislikes. I am happy to have my mom in a safe and stable environment.
