Does Not Live Up to What's Advertised

It's a 60-person facility, and I feel like your loved one is often lost in the shuffle. The staff end up confusing individuals with other residents. If your loved one is a 1 or a 2 level, they'll probably enjoy themselves in the facility. But if they need a higher care level at a 3 or a 4, you're going to be disappointed in the facility. My loved one's cleanliness/hygiene is very poor. Oftentimes her clothes are saturated with urine down to her socks, her fingernails are dirty and completely black, her hair is unwashed. It's very sad, and I'm so disappointed. We ask them to address those things all the time, and they say she has accidents all the time and is having issues. I ask what I can do to help, but they won't allow me inside. And they haven't allowed really any type of in-person visits beyond the 20-minute visits in a sequestered room, even though our family is vaccinated. I don't understand that. When it comes to cleanliness of the facility, if you look at any of the chairs that are cloth and can't be wiped off, I would say 90% of them have feces on them. You can see stains that haven't been wiped off. It's so gross. I've looked into moving her, but none of the other places in the area have availability.

My review of Poet's Walk

We chose Poet's Walk mainly because they were primarily memory care. I did not want to go to a place that was trying to balance memory care and assisted living. Most places are short staffed so I figured she would get better 1 on 1 care here. The communication has been a bit tough, it would be much easier if we were able to go inside. We are only able to do lobby visits at this time. Overall, I would recommend them to others looking.

Best place I have seen so far.

My family moved my Mom to Poets Walk 4 months ago from upstate NY. We moved her from a memory care unit after she fell and damaged her hip. Compared to the facility in NY this one deserves 5 stars. The best thing about the care is all the care givers have a manager checking their work. The medical service is better than any I have seen. The activities are very good. They always ask or really encourage patient involvement. They have most medical care, physical therapy right on site.

If you are looking for Supportive living care for a loved one with Dementia/Altimerzin Fredericksburg...look no further- Poet’s Walk, is it!!!!

Taking your loved one from their own home and placing them in to any alternative living situation is one of the hardest things in life! Thanks to Poet’s Walk and their incredibly understanding, caring, knowledgeable, and supportive staff, for us this process has successfully ended in tears of joy. From the initial visit, in their private comforting conference room, where they had been frank but caring. They helped us understand the process and answered every question with kindness and respect. To literally holding our hands when overwhelmed, scared, and exhausted and encouraging us often. Every visit from the first, thru several days moving things in for mom, we were repeated greeted by upbeat, engaging staff that always had a simile. Smiles and Hellos not just for us, but each resident the staff encountered. The home is full of LIFE! Over several days we witnessed residents engaged in an array of activities, therapies, conversation, and staff truly encouraging them out of their rooms and into interacting. One of our great fears was that this disease has characteristics in which you worry your loved one will be “kicked - out” or worse avoided. Not here! They understand that these characteristics are part of the disease. Witnessing this lively and consistent interaction, further assures you that they are in the right place. The facility is beautifully decorated and has a very upscale hotel, co-op look. We especially like the Trending Technology feature. I also like that my father is able to participate, share , learn, and connect with other spouses/loved one in groups and meetings. Although Mom will never be in her house again, thanks to all at Poet’s Walk, Fredericksburg…. she is now home

Fome one to tenj

Moving to assisted living is perhaps the most heartbreaking event a family will ever face. It was for me but I knew that I could no longer provide comfort, contentment, and basic support and service to my wife. Fortunately, from the hour of arrival the environment at Poet's Walk was so welcoming, caring, and understanding that my wife felt a home there at once. After three months that is still the case. My wife was suffering from severe depression making her life a life of sadness and lacking in self worth. That all changed after her entry into PW. What I thought would never happen: the end of depression has happened and has remained and my family and I are forever grateful for the kindness, caring, and professionalism of all of the care givers. The transition from before to after has been magnificent and we are so grateful to PW and the entire staff

Lovely Community

We had a wonderful tour of this community. This is a beautiful community with kind people. The staff was friendly, and helpful. They were very nice too my family, and I. Our questions were answered, and everything went well. However we did feel the residents were more advanced in their Alzheimer's than my mother. It was a lovely tour, but not the right fit for my mother, and her needs.

I would highly recommend this community.

This community is for memory care residents only and the staff keep the residents very engaged all day long. They offer a website the families are able to log into to see the different activities available. The only issue we had with this community is in the beginning there was a breakdown in communication with one of my loved one's medication. The food is homemade and tastes good. They offer ice cream every sunday. This is a secure community, however the residents are able to walk around and enjoy the entire community.

Wonderful place to be!

The community is great. Mom just had a hard time with the transition phase of it all. I do like that they make sure that the residents are active. Mom enjoys the music program that they have and the outings. The food on the other hand can use work. Needs more flavor kind of like school cafeteria food.

The activities are superb!!

I was intrigued by a calming room they have at the community. It has sensory items in it such as lights, music and underwater scenes. They encourage visits by pets. The professional staff are excellent. The community is convenient in the lay out. The food is good and I would recommend this community.

Made a difficult situation harder...

We originally loved the idea of Poet's Walk for Mom, but their sales person/representative was VERY pushy, which was the last thing we need in our situation. We will be looking elsewhere...

A Brand New Community

This is a brand new community and is being used as a model place for dementia. There is a lot of caregivers here and it is a good ratio between residents. Overall, I am happy with the care. The meals are tasty and plenty. My husband enjoys all the activities, he has made friends too. I would recommend this place.

Comfortable With The Care They Are Providing My Husband With

Everything is going well for my husband here at this community. He has adjusted very well to it. The staff is great, but I do think they are understaffed and need more. The community is well maintained, his room and the community are neat and tidy. There many activities offered. I've tried some meals and the food is good. I know he is receiving good care and I would recommend this community.

The home is always clean when we have been there. The food is quite tasty and the staff is very attentive during the meal time. All of the staff we have encountered smile and make us feel welcome. During the transition period they were comforting to us and mom. A beautiful home.
