Welcoming, apartments are spacious and bright. Feel like this would be a good fit for our sister.
It's a beautiful facility, and they have a lot to offer. It's more for independent/assisted living residence. I would recommend the community to others.
The community is nice, this is overly expensive. The senior community members have a fixed income and it is hard to afford. They did have a lot of things available on site such as physical therapy, doctors able to come in and see the residents. The nurses were good.
Our overall experience with Landing of Poughkeepsie is that it is very expensive. It is a newer building and looks very nice, but its extremely understaffed and they double charge you on your first month once you move in, and all extra expensive are ale cart. Our loved one was in both assisted living and memory care, and when he was in memory care he was able to get out of the building unsupervised, which we had to call the police and they found him a mile away from the building. We visited quiet often, and other residents would be in our loved ones room. The staff members were overworked so they weren't able to supervise all the residents. When it comes to the food at this community it goes to the assisted living unit first, and the leftovers would then go to the memory care unit to split between around 20 people. The rooms sometimes would smell of urine when we visited, and sometimes our loved one would smell of body odor from not being bathed. From a memory care position the activities would be they would take the residents out and sit them in front of the TV at best. Everyone that we know that has been at this community has left.
The Landings seems to be an ideal place. Clean, friendly, lots of activities, good dining options. BEWARE! This assisted living home operates on a social model not a clinical model, please do your research if you are not absolutely clear about what that means. The Life Guidance unit is advertised as special care for Alzheimer’s or dementia patients. That could not be farther from the truth. You will find inadequate staff, untrained to handle this population. Your loved one will be sent out by ambulance instead of managing or redirecting unwanted behaviors. Their inability to help these patients with special needs ultimately leads to a large turn over in patient population. Their egregious behavior will leave your loved one no continuity of care and will exacerbate and interfere with their daily functioning. It is my opinion and my experience that The Landings management does not care about the residents they are charged with caring for. Please, please do not place your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia here.

My Dad arrived at The Landing of Poughkeepsie a month and half ago. What a wonderful place this has become for him. He is now getting up and out of his apartment to attend activities, go and choose his meals,out of the facility on the transportation bus to a local church and shopping. It has been a wonderful experience. All the employees have also been exceptional and providing assistance with any of his guest ions.l really consider this place a blessing. I have worked the last 40 years in the nursing field and could not be happier, that Dad and all three of his children feel this assisted facility is just perfect for him. By the way Dad has been gaming back weight that he lost while living alone. He says the food is great and loves dining with other resident

Beverly, We are thrilled to read that you and your family consider the Landing of Poughkeepsie a blessing. It is our pleasure to serve your Dad and each and every one of our residents. Your feedback is important to us, and we appreciate you sharing your experience.
We toured the Landing of Poughkeepsie. Beautiful facility. Residents looked happy. Food is amazing. It was clean. However, it was clearly stated this is a social model facility, which means that if my father needs extra care in toileting, he would not be able to stay here. The reality is that with dementia, sometimes they forget how to unbuckle their pants or to wipe. I am just discouraged at how many facilities I have toured where help with toileting is considered more of a medical higher level of care situation - yet he is not appropriate for a skilled nursing facility at this time. To be fair, this is the case with most private assisted living that does not have step down options. I am lucky my father doesn't have agitation, however, they made it clear that this would also not be handled in their memory unit. So, I will save you a trip, if your loved one gets agitated easily, this will not work for you.
I spoke with the staff at The Landing while looking at options for my father-in-law, and it was actually my first choice. The staff were wonderful, kind, and great at following up with us. However, it was too pricy, so I ultimately chose a different community
Look beyond the grounds, the flowers, the beautifully decorated lobby. My loved one had falls, ER visits, not getting medication, bruises, and no one could answer why to any of these happenings. Constant urinary tract infections from not being toileted and the need for myself and family members to be there daily!
