Great Independent Living

My mom was there for 8 years in the independent living but I knew I wasn't going to put her into the assisted living there. The independent living is great because of the quality of the place as well as the quality of the living. The building is very well maintained. It was very solidly built in the first place and they've maintained it beautifully since. My mother-in-law also lived there for about 8 years. We really liked it a lot but the assisted living side is more like stick them in a hospital room and be done with it kind of thing. Neither my mother nor my mother-in-law were particularly enamored with the assisted living there.... Read more

my review of the The Montebello on Academy

We toured the community and the facility was very nice. The tour was good and the staff was very friendly. The only issue we had was the pricing was out of our range and the community was not pet friendly.

Poor experience, rude staff

Our experience with The Montebello was a poor one, and I wouldn't recommend them. We had issues with the staff being rude and disrespectful towards my loved one, and I have heard the same complaint from personal acquaintances, so I know it wasn't just us.

Their skilled nursing is understaffed. It is a wonderful, beautiful facility in a wonderful area. The staff is always very friendly. The food was good overall.

My mother really enjoys this respite care facility

My mother likes it. She thinks everyone is nice, and she enjoys having people around to talk to. and join them for meals. She goes for day care/ respite care. She also likes the music they have. They do activities; she doesn't participate in them. The location is the closest to my house, so it's very convenient. I think it's a great place because my mother enjoys it.

Very nice facility, but family still needs to keep eye.

It truly does not matter how much or the location of a facility, it is all based on the quality of the people that work there. There are some awesome RNs and CNAs at the Montebello. There are also the not so great ones that truly should not work in a facility with seniors that need attention. My mother is in Skilled Nursing and my father is in an Independent living apartment. It is wonderful having them in the same facility and having individual care. But having said that, family still needs to be very hands on if they expect good care. Period.

Thank you for a positive review on our facility and staff. We pride ourselves on quality care and service. Any negative experience in customer care is always an opportunity to discuss specific challenges. Our community is fortunate to be able to offer service levels where one family member can reside, while your other family member is undergoing rehabilitation. Please feel free to contact me by phone so I can be of assistance. Thank you, Aaron Rance Executive Director

Nice for the Most Part

For the most part it's a very nice place but the cleanliness...for what they charge it was sub-par. They had different parts to it. They had a retirement community which is pretty nice I guess but the assisted living, where my mom was, wasn't that great. The biggest thing is when you walk in there is a smell. That's a real turn off.

Has what you should look for in a community

We're moving my father there tomorrow; we've been there and we think they would take good care of my father. If he is ultimately happy there he could stay there because they have the facilities he needs. It's clean, they're friendly, it's very nice, they have everything my dad may need, and they have availabilities which is pretty important. They have all the things we were told to look for: friendly, knowledgable, all things seemed to be in place. We looked at ratings and felt that it would be the best for us especially if he needed that kind of care we wouldn't have to move him; specifically the skilled nursing he needs to be released from the hospital.
