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?

The location made a driving problem for my sister to visit.

Had our loved one in the memory care unit on the 5th floor. This place is just awful. Anytime I was there and asked for help with my family member it seemed like a huge inconvenience to the aides. They were constantly on their phones and in no hurry to assist anyone. My resident always had dirty stained clothing on and was never changed. After our family member passed away they returned the unused meds to us. There was such a surplus we wondered if they were giving the medicine as prescribed. I advise you to do your homework and ask questions of residents relatives before choosing a nursing home. We learned the hard way.
