  • Hard to transition but doing better

    My mother in law is still in the phase of transitioning from her home to this place but then again no matter where we had placed her she would have had a hard time. . She is doing much better thanks to the staff of being empathetic and patient. In fact we went back several times to them before placing her to ease everyones mind that this was going to be the right fit and every time we went back they always welcomed us never made us feel that we were bothersome to them My mother in law is slowly coming around to the food she is slowly starting to eat but I have eaten there a few times and the food is really good. I think once she gets more settled in she might like to participate in the activities they offer. Over all I am very pleased with this location my mom had been in one of their sister communities and she really liked it there as well so I honestly expect the same once she settles in. .

  • Our choice was a good one.

    Our mother (88 y.o., w/moderate dementia, moved to North Shore Place only a month ago, after living independently in her condo for 12 years. However, based only upon this short time, my 2 brothers and I are confident that our choice of NSP was a good one. When a vulnerable loved one lives far from family members, it's critical that one can trust an assisted living facility to have the best interests of residents in mind, since personal observation and monitoring is impossible. While we knew that our mother valued her privacy and autonomy, we increasingly worried about her ability to live safely on her own - she no longer drove, compliance with medication regimens and appropriate nutrition was deteriorating, and, most importantly, self-awareness of her condition and need to recognize when she needed help was rapidly vanishing. Now that she lives at NSP, we know that she receives her medication as ordered, enjoys (really! not just consumes) 3 meals a day in a dining room that resembles a pleasant restaurant, is surrounded by universally-friendly nursing assistants and other staff, and spends most of her free time in a comfortable, one-bedroom apartment that we have decorated with family photographs and other personal items. Activities are readily available, although Mom usually does not participate, while acknowledging that she might "at some time". Maintaining her important relationships with friends and synagogue were of primary importance to us when choosing a facility, and NSP is literally minutes from her previous home and primary shopping area. When we visit, a Marriott hotel is across the street (altho NSP also has a guest room). A car and driver is usually available on a first-come, first-served basis; however, to date, transportation has been provided by ourselves when visiting or friends. More than anything, however, is the positive and welcoming attitude of the staff. Everyone knew Mom's name within days of her arrival. When we are away, she is seated with other residents so that she can feel a part of the community; if she isn't in her apartment when medications are due, the CNA will come looking for her; her forgetfulness is recognized and accommodated. While Mom acknowledges that, while she wishes that her condition did not required she leave her independent life-style, she is glad to be in a place such as North Short Place, and so are we.

  • Brand Promises are Unmet

    What you are told during the sales process is not what we've experienced. The care is woefully insufficient given the needs of the residents, so much so we have hired additional help, driving up the monthly cost from $9,500 to more than $16k per month. My wife worries constantly about the care her mother is receiving. Who is responsible to ensure North Shore lives up to its promises?
