My father lived here for about a year, from 2014 -2015. The staff overall was nice, the management was good, when not overwhelmed with elevators breaking down, and gas leaks that resulted in no hot water to the rooms for several days. And the elevator KEPT breaking down. This facility was built to be a hotel, and it was just that for many years. Improvements have been made but it still has a HOTEL LAYOUT. There is NO getting around the spaces that residents can get stuck in, hallways, alcoves, stairs. And there is not enough staff to deal with this. How can staff provide good care when the building is a deterrent? Hotels are designed to give folks privacy, assisted living sites should be designed in a way that staff have a easier time of keeping eyes out for disoriented or confused or lonely residents. If your parent, like my father, has dementia or develops dementia, even if Santa Maria Terrace continues to have a dementia waiver, you should look elsewhere. In fact, have a plan B for this. My father chose Santa Maria Terrace to save money and he did, but his quality of life would have been better in a community designed to work for residents and staff. The activities were few and far between but that could have changed.
While we cannot pinpoint our disappointment, we feel it is not the place for our aunt. It felt less like 'home' and more like a seniorfacility
What ever they tell you about this place is a con!!!! the main elavator has been broke for over 4 months, SO NO EMT,S CAN GET A GURNEY UP TO FLOORS 2 THRU 4. SO IF YOU FALL AND HURT YOURSELF SERIOULY YOU ARE PUT IN A WHEELCHAIR TO BE TAKEN DOWNSTAIRS.THINK IF YOU BREAK A VERTEBRAE IN YOUR BACK.OR BREAK A HIP,HOW SAFE OF TRANSPORT THAT IS FOR YOUR LOVED ONE!!!! DON\T BELIEVE WHAT KIND OF CARE THERE TRY'N TO SELL YOU ITS LIKE A USED CAR SALESMAN! ITS [Removed]......."
Was disappointed, the outside not maintained well , not welcoming. The inside was just ok. Not on my list of options for mom.
Care staff and facility not able to fully support our father's more advanced Alzheimer's levels of behavior, especially in the area of personalized interaction and activities. Wander Guard system did not work past the entrance to the garden allowing our father to leave the facility twice undetected via an unlocked gate. Care staff friendly and supportive, but unable to provide enough monitoring, even with the addition of "frequent checks" and escort services. Assessing exactly what is required for a resident with Alzheimer's can be difficult and touring, then choosing a facility is time consuming, but necessary in order to provide the best fit for the individual.
The staff is friendly. But the service and the food is not so good. There is a new chef. But when I ask for a drink or husband asks for ice cream, we never get it. I need to put on weight but they have been giving me the small portion meals, not regular portion. I haven't been able to do the activities yet.
I guess that my loved one went to the Emergency Room and a taxi brought her back and she had to fill out paperwork that needed to get to the doctor, and it took a long time to get that sorted out for her.
The employees at Santa Maria Terrace are very helpful. My father has Dementia and can be difficult at times. They are very patience with him and he is settling in as well as can be expected. This is the only one that I found that would allow him to have his dog with him, Labrador.
My sister lives at the Santa Maria Terrace. We are very happy with the facility. Michelle Kiel did a great job. She was extremely helpful. I can't rate the care services or the activities because I was not there long enough. This is a nice place.
My friend, Susan Proctor, asked me to help her find somewhere to live. She had been hospitalized and then placed in a facility she could not afford. I found your web site and was assisted by you. You recommended Santa Maria Terrace. It is a lovely place with lots of activities and great food. She seems very happy to live there. Thank you so much.
