  • Beyond Disappointed!

    Our family toured many communities and after a bad experience at a different facility, we chose the FT across the street. Within one short week our Mother was injured by another resident. After a trip to the ER, the FT sales rep suggested we go tour one of their other houses. Our Mother had to be moved to this house. We have not felt a speck of trust or peace of mind based on the unfriendly and uncaring staff not to mention the uncleanliness of the house. Promises made of activities are just that, promises! They don’t do anything but sit everyone in the cramped Living area and turn on the tv. There is zero human interaction. We’ve seen some staff members actually being rough with these poor helpless individuals. Residents are left to sit in soiled clothes. I wish we could rewind and chose a different facility. Not Fox Trail!!! We’re so sad that our Mother has to spend her final years in the care of this terrible place. Heartbreaking experience! Now we are faced with the terrible decision to possibly move her again.

  • Very satisfied after a rough transition!!!

    My Mom moved to Hillsdale 2 in August 2015. I have been reluctant to write a review as our initial experience was not ideal. At the time of my mom's move, the house manager and Nurse had quit and the acitivities director was not at work due to an injury. Consequently, my Mom's transition to the facility was handled very poorly. I was very upset and didn't feel that when I called the administrative offices they were sensitive to my concerns about my mom's transition. After having a couple of meltdowns, they became more attentive. Things became a little better but they never directly addressed questions I had about them finding a new house manager and if they were ever going to replace the Nurse. They apparently are not going to replace the Nurse. I do wish someone from administration would of just told me that in the first place. All that being said, I am glad I didn't jump the gun and write a bad review. It took them about 3 mos. to find a new house manager. But they finally did and she is wonderful. She is very responsive to any questions or concerns I have. She randomly sends me pictures of my Mom enjoying activities. I have also grown very fond of several staff members. They treat my mom like she is their mom. The home is homey and has a warm feel to it. I adore the other residents, they are becoming like family to me as well. Whenever my mom is sad the house manager takes her accross the street to Hillsdale 1 to visit the residents. My mom thinks she is going over there to cheer them up and feels very important. She forgets all about why she is sad. To sum it up...after a very rocky start, I am happy to say that Hillsdale 2 is an environment where my mom is engaged, well cared for and thriving. That's all one can ask for their loved one! I am giving Hillsdale 2 a 4 star rating. It would be 5 stars if the commincation between families and administrative offices were a bit better...
