Do not consider this place

This place is filthy, garbage in the hallway on the floor, stained carpets, it is an old building and is in need of repair and a paint job. My relative’s room had [language removed] on their bathroom floor, literally [language removed] and their room stinks. We took pictures The food is inadequate There is no physiotherapy for them The staff are not friendly and seem to have their own agenda They were not interested in finding out who we are and did not encourage us to stay and engage with our relative. It was like they were controlling our relative. Do not consider this place for any one you love. There is no check in or out. The place is not family friendly. The administration did not answer our questions or concerns. It was very sad to see the poor condition of a person who had once been loved and admired by family and their community. Who ever put them in Kelso Pines should be ashamed! It is not a nice place.

Due Diligence

My loved one, who was in the early stages of dementia, was in this facility a number of years ago, and it was a terrible experience. In general, the staff was unqualified and/or inadequately trained to deal with elderly persons with dementia. Anti-psychotic drugs were used to "manage" my loved one. The food was not appropriate for the clientele. On one occasion, I witnessed strips of bacon served and no staff available to cut it for the clients. The cleanliness of the facility was abysmal. Frequently, I would clean my loved one's room and remove buckets of dirty water from the floors. My loved one fell during the night, and was found on the floor of another client's room. My loved one was taken back to bed rather than being assessed by trained medical personnel. In the morning, my loved one was taken by ambulance to the hospital where it was determined s/he had a broken hip and was very ill with pneumonia. Unfortunately, my loved one passed away about 10 days later in the hospital. If you are considering this facility for your loved one, ensure the concerns raised have been rectified. If your loved one is currently in this facility, closely monitor the situation.
