Review for Morningside of Gastonia

The staff are wonderful but the price is high and the food is subpar compared to what it was last year. I think they take good care of her but honestly, the menus aren't the best for seniors with lots of medical issues. They serve, primarily, carbs which has caused mom to gain a lot of weight & not want to eat three meals per day as she & other residents should. The food has been my only complaint.... Read more

Large facility, great tour

We toured Morningside of Gastonia when searching for an Assisted Living facility for my loved one. Our tour of this facility was great. The facility itself is neat, clean, and secure. It has a large area for residents with dementia. This facility is much larger than most of the other places that I toured. It was my first choice since it is so close to home.

Highly recommended for memory care

The staff does an excellent job of managing my wife who has severe dementia. They handle her with patience and dignity. The facility itself has a very nice layout. The room size is good. A very pleasant atmosphere. I would recommend Morningside of Gastonia to others looking, it was the best fit for our situation.

Would not recommend. Terrible experience. Inadequate care.

My father in law was not changed, he had 4 UTIs in which all went undiagnosed/treated for weeks. He had bedsores on his bottom without having proper treatment if I didn't go take care of him. I had to go every day to make sure he had clean clothes on and not soiled. The staff has a lot of potential- it's the executive director and managers that are hindering the employees. They have not had proper training for memory care. I had to report two of them, and they did nothing about the situation. 1 was on another resident. That's why we moved out. I truly feel bad for several staff members. They stay for insurance.

Room for Improvement

Although called a 5 Star Community, this facility is average. The biggest complaint we have is the food service. It is poor. The food is overcooked and frequently they are out of things on the menu. For the price the residents pay, the food should be at least as good as the local K&W. It's not even close. Residents have voiced concerns through the proper channels for at least 4 years and there is no improvement. Maintenance is subpar. Stairwells aren't swept, carpets aren't vacuumed adequately, bathroom floors are rarely mopped. The activities director is wonderful and many of the caregivers are compassionate. However, turnover is frequent and new staff have little training. With improved food service and maintenance this facility could be a wonderful asset to the city.

Working Out Well For Us

My father is doing well since his move to this community. I do feel he is safe, and in good hands. They have a good staff, and they are taking good care of him, and his needs. When I visit the community everything is nice, and clean. This community is working out pretty well for us, and I would recommend it.

Carpets needed to be cleaned

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. Morningside of Gastonia seemed like a nice enough place, the staff was friendly and professional, but I noticed a few cleanliness issues. I could see a lot of spots on the carpets, it seemed like they had not been cleaned in quite a while.

Very happy mother and daughter

My mother has been here for almost 3 years and is very happy. The staff is very attentive and patient. Mom raves about the food and loves the fact that she "orders from a menu." The staff is great about keeping me informed about any issues with Mom. Since her memory is so bad, I have to call them whenever I am going to come get her (she will either get dressed and wait for me for hours or forget altogether). They have her ready for me when I come. Mom will probably have to move to the Memory Care Unit soon, so they are integrating her into their activities, so she will feel comfortable with the staff and the residents when the time comes. They are very concerned with preserving her dignity.

Seemed like a nice place

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. We saw quite a few, and this one really stood out to me, it was a nice place. Everyone here was very friendly, and the facility itself was clean and well kept. They also appeared to have a good amount of activities available for the residents.

Phenomenal Care!

My mother and father both were at Morningside due to Alzheimer's , dementia, and medical problems. The Director, nurses, CNA's, dietary, PT, Hair dresser, the Ladies that painted Mom's nails, and Activity Coordinator were phenomenal! My Mom had to be placed on the secured Memory Care Unit and my father was on the Assisted Living side, close to that unit's door. My father could go in anytime and help my Mom and he could participate in activities and be social with the residents in Assisted Living. Morningside made the last days of my parent's lives comfortable and the compassion was beyond my expectations! Bless you all!
