We chose Kempton of Greenville because of the staff, the location, and seemed like a safer facility as well. Residents get a lanyard with a button they can push if they need help. The room that they have is nice but the layout makes it seem tight, they have a 1 bedroom with a den. I would tell others just to make sure to be good with communication with what your loved one needs and make sure that they follow through. I think they could improved on the cleaning in the rooms. Overall I would recommend to others who are looking and I have.
my mother was sent to the hospital and they refused to accept her back. This is called dumping. The laws dont protect seniors because it is done under the guise of medical necessity. Mom was diagnosed by the hospital as having dementia and thats it. She had that when she moved in 4 months prior. The staff that was kind and cared for my mom and advocated for her was fired for speaking up to management. The others quit. unless they get new management I would stay far far away. dont be fooled by the pretty decor of the lobby. if you can hire home helpers or move somewhere else, do it.
if you are looking for a senior style apartment with a sprinkle of assistance, then this may be a good fit. For dementia it is TERRIBLE. Their memory care is not for high functioning. In the assisted living section, my mother was consistently having issues. i found out she was sleeping in her jeans and no one would encourage or help her get ready for bed. management would ignore my calls and actually had a text group with other staff not to talk to us. Food was acceptable at best. lots of fried. but it was served "restaurant style". we have found a much much better place and have had zero issue since moving out of oakleaf/ kempton of greenville. i have learned a LOT about what is going on at assisted living facilities and what to look for. dont be fooled by the pretty decor.
They had plenty of activities, my mom just didn't take advantage of them. I would tell my friends that it was a wonderful facility. The staff smiled, and it was the first thing I noticed. The chef was a wonderful guy. It was a great place. If I had to end up in assisted living I would want to go somewhere like Oakleaf Village.
My Mom has Alzheimer's. She tried to leave - because that's what people with this disease do. They sent my Mom to the ER and left her there. For 5 days - no change of clothes, no nothing and refused to let her come back even with a sitter. In the peak of the Corona virus pandemic. Who does this??? There was no medical reason - they just cannot deliver the care they promote - 100% unprofessional. We have since found a place for my Mom where they care and work with her with patience a d compassion.

They are in process of updating common areas. Gonna be really pretty in another month.This is a larger facility and I really liked the space. Plenty of staff to help patients. There are elevators and long corridors I felt would be confusing for my dad.
This place is not somewhere that you want to have your loved one living. The turnover is very high. The management has been one bad director after another. We complain about issues and are told they will get corrected and nothing ever happens. I’ve witnessed caregivers assisting my mother in law with very little attention or care that she is being moved from her wheelchair to chair safely. I could go on and on. Just stay away.
Oh stay away. My mom is currently the facility we are moving her out. They can not keep staff at all, something is wrong big time here. Some of the staff that is left is awesome will ensure your loved one gets what they need, and then the others sit around on their cell phones having personal conversation while my mom stares at a blank screen. The food is God awful, my mom has lost so much weight. The building is falling apart. Mom went a week without hot water and it wasn't the first time. My moms medications aren't given correctly, my son taped a girl sleeping and told management nothing happened, that same girl works back there now still sleeping but whats the point in reporting it. This place is a [Removed] and shouldn't be connected with the Thornblade community at all. Beware for your loved one, the management is convincing but once you get in it's a big mess
Too much staff turn over and I feel my mother is not receiving the attention she needs. We chose another facility for her today.
My experience with Oakleaf Village has been a very good one. It's a nice looking place, the staff is friendly, and they take great care of the people who live here. I highly recommend them!
When we first moved our loved one to this facility it was state-of-the-art; fully booked professional staff who seemed to care very deepy about their residents and just an overall good place to leave your loved one in someone's care and feel good about it. Little-by-little this started dwindling away. Broken dryers never getting fixed, wet clothes being folded and placed wet in resident hampers; was the first red flag for us ...to front desk not beeing covered; watching a resident fall out front and the front desk girl runs out to retreive him and upper management never left office to assist front desk or go out and checkm on the resident that fell. Particularly on the assisted living side, there is not a lot of concern as to where a resident is. They can be sleeping the day away, missing lunch; etc. and mostly because there is such a changeover in staff that they aren't given the opportunity to really meet and understand the resident's habits before they quit or move on. The facility is still very clean. No complaints on this end. Only real complaint is their staff changeover is way too high and this generally means if the staff isn't happy, and there are huge turnovers, things aren't being taken care of at the top. We were saddened to move our loved one because they liked their room and resident neighbors, however, we felt the proper attention was not being given to our loved one and we chose to move on after much anguish. Our loved one for the most part, didn't need a lot of help, however, with all alzheimers patients, there are good and bad days. We began to have way more bad days than good and it was time to move on. If the changeover wasn't so frequent, we may have considered the memory care side at Oakleaf. But honestly, if the assisted living side and memory care side are managed by the same upper management staff, I can't see where this would have been a benefit. We are very grateful for the staff that did go the extra mile and care, but like I said, the majority of them are gone and I would have no way to even reach out to them and tell them. There one day and gone the next. It was hard keeping up with current staffers. Best of luck to everyone in this very difficult search to find a facility that loves and cares for your parent or loved one as much as you. I felt very compelled to share our story, because families need to know. This in no way meant to degrade the facility becasue we are grateful for the time that was good, but hopefully it is educational wake up call to see what they are clearly missing right in front of their own eyes. Best regards,
We toured this community while we were looking into care options for a loved one. Oakleaf Village looked like a very nice place overall, and it was pet friendly which was one of our requirements. The facility was clean and well kept, and the staff seemed friendly and professional.
We visited this community while looking into care options for a loved one. I was very impressed by what I saw here, I'd give them top marks across the board! We visited unannounced to get a sense of what the community is really like and everything looked great! It was clean, they had activities going on, and the tour they gave us was informative and helpful. It's a very nice place!
I liked the place but they only had a room on the second floor and with her having a dog that would have been too much.
So far we're very pleased with how things have gone with Oakleaf Village! It is a nice looking place, they keep things very clean, and the staff have all been friendly and helpful. We would recommend them to anyone looking into senior living in the area!
Wonderful facility with tons of great amenities, excellent floor plans and knowledgeable staff. The price however was too high for us to afford.
My brother and I searched numerous locations to place out grandmother who is now 105. The girls here are the most caring individuals I have ever seen. I STRONGLY suggest bringing your loved one here. I promise they will love it and you will have piece of mind they are in caring hands.
My loved one was unfortunately here only a short time, but from everything we experienced they were great. The memory care provided was very good. We had been very happy with the location he had been in previously, but what we saw here really opened our eyes to what good memory care is. The admission woman, June, was fantastic. She was extremely helpful in answering questions, and worked with us to find an option that we could afford. The hospice service they work with is also very very good.
We're in sort of a weird situation because my father recently passed away and my mom had fallen so she's in rehab but we are bring her back to Oakleaf. She'll be going back to the memory care/skilled nursing instead where they'll be able to do thickened liquids for her. The fall hasn't been because of the care, she just has issues with gravity. I think the majority of the staff is very caring and they keep up with their patients very well, I had not been a huge fan of their RN and how things are run but she's leaving so I'd hate to say something negative about the entire staff because I'm hoping things will turn around. Sometimes with follow through we'd ask for things to happen and they wouldn't have been done so I can't imagine what would have happened if we hadn't been there all the time. The staff though has been wonderful through my dad's passing and everything else that has been going on.
