Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Do NOT put your loved ones in this facility

Do not put your loved one in this facility. My father was a resident for 2 1/2 years before he passed. To start, we didn't know until recently that their license application was rejected by the state and, therefore, have been operating under a temporary license in hopes that they will be approved. The last we heard, it was unlikely to happen. Although we can't confirm that it was staff members, someone kept stealing my fathers stuff (phone charges, TV remote, money, toiletries, etc). The staff repeatedly consumed his store bought food without asking and would use his living room as if it were there personal breakroom while he was confined to this bedroom. If you look them up, there are multiple complaints with the state so please do your homework and "buyer beware" if you choose to put your loved one there!

Questioning Our Choice

My resident is in personal care at Schenley. The good news is that this place appears to be clean; it hasn't smelled or appeared dirty when I've visited. The bad news: Twice I've found fecal matter on the one and only towel in my resident's room--no one wants to dry their hands anywhere near that towel-- and I got fresh sets after hunting down someone to help. Three staff members have been conversationally pleasant. One of the three is outstanding with her welcoming demeanor and helpful attitude. Other staff members aren't welcoming to family members; they make eye contact but that's it--an impassive stare that screams, "What do you want"? We are polite and respectful. They can't crack a smile or even act like we have any business there--it's a bother to answer a question. Finally, ALL of the chairs and sofas are too low for the elderly, infirm residents to get out of without a struggle. WHY?

Overall Satisfied

So far we are satisfied with my mother in law move to this community. I'am pretty active in her day to day living, and everything is working out well. We do feel she is safe, and in good hands. Overall this community is working out well for my mother in law, and her needs.
