  • It is still early with only 2 months into this living arrangement. But after the first 10 days we were handed a bill for $11,800 . That's $35,400 a month ! after they agreed to $4870 a month . It brought my wife to tears after all the other stressful things she has been going through trying to help her mother with doctor appointments , living with us in our home . medications , therapists every other day , preparing meals , laundry . bathing her mother and other hygiene and more . In the first 10 days Mission Creek did not bathe [name removed] nor do any of her laundry after it was discussed that both things would be done once a week .

  • One Star only because of great Reception staff

    I would and will never refer anyone to this place. My mother was there for one month - she had severe depression and anxiety issues and I asked while signing the paperwork/lease agreement if they had a doctor that could help with those issues and was told yes, and that they could have someone work with her (psychologist/counselor) to help her with those issues. They never did. The room was beautiful, the facility is very nice, but there is no 'hominess' to it at all. The care staff was exasperated with my mom because she wouldn't cooperate at times and instead of trying to address the issue (anxiety and anxiousness mixed with short-term memory issues), they would call me at all hours to tell me she was refusing meds, was yelling at them, etc. There was a time I was visiting and as I was leaving, I ran into one of the aides who gives out the meds. I told her I was sorry she (my mom) was so difficult and apologized. She said nothing, turned and walked away. All the staff did was complain about her, got the director involved. I would try calling the doctor and wouldn't get calls returned. And any time I did get a hold of the doctor, she was in the director's office with the legal person in the room as well. The person who initially gave me the tour never went through the proper channels to determine the level of care she needed, if that had been done correctly, perhaps they would have told me that they wouldn't accommodate her. Instead she endured extreme anxiety, and all she did when I visited was cry. Instead of figuring out how to help her anxiety, they sent me a letter telling me that I had 30 days to move her out, that they didn't have enough staff to provide for her needs. The only people that I encountered that were helpful and nice were the gals at the front desk! I was thoroughly disgusted with the way my mother was handled there - my feeling was that she wasn't a "perfect" resident, so they didn't want to deal with her because she was difficult, but that was all due to her anxiety and depression. I took my mother to her doctor when we left there and her doctor had a long discussion with her and determined a regimen of anti-anxiety/depression meds, a pain medication for her extremely painful shoulder, and she is a new person. We moved her to a wonderful facility with caring staff that treat her and the other residents like family (I observe this every time I am there and it isn't a show - they are like that all the time) - they hug them, joke with them, the residents are all treated like family. They are just wonderful and my mother is happy, she smiles, laughs, participates in all of the activities and has even made friends with a bunch of the ladies there. Although Mission Creek is a beautiful facility, and I'm sure some of the staff is great, our experience was far from great. If your loved one doesn't have any issues, they'll be fine there. I also know that, when my mother was there, all of the residents got letters from the parent company stating that they would not be able to stay there once their money ran out and they go on Medicaid. I was told they only have "one or two beds" for Medicaid residents, so 98% of those who are self-funding, will have to leave and go to a Medicaid facility that doesn't require 2 years of self-funding. Know what those facilities are like? Know what kind of care they get in some of those places? How rotten. Would NEVER recommend this place to anyone!!
