Some pluses. Some challenges.

The facility itself is nice and well maintained. Administrative staff was friendly and mostly responsive. Service staff were hit and miss as far as training and proficiency. Food in the dining room was acceptable .... brought to the room .... unacceptable.

A Caring Facility With Good But Shortage of Staffing

This is a nice community and a good size for my loved one. I think Hawthorne Gardens is short of staff just like a lot of the communities are today. There are times that my loved one belongings have disappeared or I can't find them when I go to visit.

[name removed] the tour guide was great. She was honest and professional and listened intently to my mom's needs. I left feeling optimistic as they had a light filled corner room and seemed to have folks my mom would befriend. Unfortunately the room with the man next door was emanating a terrible smell and the door was left completely open--2 employees were trying to help him, I got a glance at a difficult and again, extremely foul smelling, situation. It was just bad luck but those things have a way of marking what was an otherwise very positive experience. I'm a bit torn on this place. GREAT location, beautiful neighborhood. I liked that the assisted living was on one floor and seemed smallish, like my mom would get personal attention. Feels small and intimate compared to others I've visited.

It is OK.

My mom lived there for about a year and a half in the assisted living portion. Lots of turn over in management and staff during that time. The staff was helpful, although many things were inexplicably difficult. They could provide medication, but would not administer eye drops. The food went from OK to bad, to downright inedible due to turn over in the kitchen. Show up for a regular meal, not a brunch for a true taste. Scheduling transportation to doctors visits is often unhelpful as they will not escort your parent to the actual waiting room. They get a curb drop off. Also, scheduling outside of the pretty narrow pre-defined transport opportunities (one or two days a week) is difficult. Communication from the staff was OK regarding my mother's health. The staff would sometimes call, but other times, including an ER transport, would fail to make contact with a family member. Health events that may seem minor were not communicated unless you asked to see the health logs or notes. The rooms at HG are nice enough. The air conditioning and heating is provided by a through-wall unit which has a noisy fan. Windows can also be opened for outside air. The biggest concern was that at the end of my mother's life, they refused to allow her to have hospice at the facility. They would not provide care for her and we end up scrambling to find a new place for hospice (which there are few on-demand options!) at the very end when she was very ill. That is not a good outcome. Be sure to understand what care will and will not be provided during times of declining health as you may be surprised to be caring for your loved one while scrambling to find a facility at the same time. If you read this far, you already know, but you should read the inspection log book that they are required to have in the lobby. It tells about any findings by inspectors and what actions they took.

Hawthorne Gardens is NOT What it Advertises

Our mother has lived at Hawthorne Gardens Senior Living since the fall of 2018, first in Assisted Living and for the past year in Memory Care. In this time there have been three different companies running the place, all of them promising to improve things. Staff turnover is alarming with many only lasting a week or two. They are ill trained and over worked. They have little to no supervision. Memory Care is far worst than assisted living. Our mother's room is often filthy. Your feet stick to the bathroom floor and her rug hasn't been vacuumed in 3 months. It literally stinks. Laundry is not done regularly and when it is done, clothes are often ruined. Our mother often does not have the basic necessities like toilet paper and kleenex. If we did not check on her EVERY DAY, I would fear for her overall safety. Hawthorne Gardens is not what it appears to be in their advertisements or on the tour. The tour is so ridiculously deceiving.

My experience with Hawthorne Gardens memory care

MY mom resides in the memory care at Hawthorne Gardens. It is a beautiful building, and appears to be well staffed, and the employees appeared to be engaged with the residents on my initial walk through. After an unannounced visit I made to visit my mother in memory care one morning, I was shocked to see how different things really are. The memory care unit was short staffed, it was dirty and there were residents screaming, and the staff and memory care manager, [Removed]. were present, and no one cared. I am not happy, and unimpressed by the lack of professionalism in this memory care, and will be removing my mother from this dreadful place, and will be making sure the public is aware of how this place is really ran. The manager is lazy, and the staff is untrained, and unprofessional. It is not a safe environment, and I have seen a huge decline in my mother, and other residents since I have put my mother here. This place should be closed down!!!

We toured this community and we liked the staff that was helpful to answer the questions. The community is clean and maintained. We liked the list of activities that would have been offered for her to be active. We needed something closer. We would recommend this community for the care for a loved one.

My parents happy new home

This is a nice community for my parents, who live together on the memory care floor. The staff is nice and caring. The community is clean and they are happy with the atmosphere. There is no dietitian on staff and the menu is just ok. They have activities 2x per week on the memory floor. It would be great if there was something every day of the week to get them out of their room and more active. On the week-ends there is less staff, so if one resident has an issue - other residents will wait. We recommend this community to other families for the good care and the value. An extremely helpful benefit to this community is a support group they have for the loved ones of the memory care floor. It's an important part of my parent's care.

Great place in the city

I am pleasantly surprised with the services provided. The activities are varied with an emphasis on diverse exercise opportunities daily - even Sat and Sun. The facility has only one small elevator - a big inconvenience for diners on all 4 floors when the dining room is on the first floor. Residents are patient and have learned how to make this work, but at first look this is very upsetting. The fire hazard question loomed large with me until the fire safety measures were explained to me - multiple automatic fire doors on each floor and fire department main lines in the stairwell on each floor. The facility is also connected several times each year with neighborhood gatherings so residents feel that they belong and are important. Sidewalks are somewhat uneven, but Hawthorne probably can't do much about that. The alert necklaces should be replaced with bracelets as residents remember to wear them more when they put on on their watches and bracelets at the same time.

strong advocate for this facility

I am very pleased with Hawthorne Gardens Senior Living. The staff is stable, which is a really good indicator of the facility. I recently understood, that they have sold. So, I am hoping that her rate doesn't skyrocket. The staff are responsive to any requests that we have. She wanted to switch from dairy to almond milk and they were very accommodating to that. The chef even came out and asked her, if he needed to cook with it for the meals. They also added routers to the computers when she first moved in, because she was having some issues. I am a strong advocate for this facility. I just hope it stays the same.
