a nice community but needs improvement

When loved ones are diabetic they need to have a diabetic menu to where it has those restriction's - so they could work to really improve the meal service and options

Response from Senior Commons at Powder Mill

August 11, 2022

Thank you for choosing Senior Commons. Please know that we do have diabetic and heart healthy options on our menu at every meal. However, we also have to allow residents to make choices. Do we educate? Are healthy options offered? Can we encourage the low-fat, low-sugar jello? Absolutely. And we do. But, if a resident asks for the cake or ice cream that their neighbor is eating, we also can’t say “No”.

This Was The Most Horrible Experience, I Wish I Would Have Never Put My Loved One Here

This was the worse experience we have ever experienced. There were ants crawling on the dining table and countertops. There was only one staff member for 12-14 residents. The residents would be calling out for help, and the staff wouldn't respond. My loved one spent more time in the hospital than in the community. I ended up calling the state on the community due to the things I had seen in the community. The memory care unit would blow off our calls and concerns. The administrator would not return our voicemails that we left, and then when we saw the administrator in person wanted us to leave another message as they were too busy to speak to us for a few minutes.

Overall good experience at Senior Commons

My mom lived at Senior Commons for 3 years until she passed so my family got to know the facility and the staff pretty well. They all sincerely cared about my mom. We were especially pleased with the med techs who dispense the medication and check on the residents throughout the day. They spend the most time with the residents and were all respectful, kind and hard workers. In addition, we were especially pleased with those at the front desk, those in the dining hall and those in charge of the activities. My mom had a really nice 2 room apartment with a kitchenette. I would highly recommend Senior Commons.

When Your Parents Can No Longer Be At Home, Senior Commons in the Next Best Place

I would tell others that the staff are wonderful, the food is good, the activities are fun, and they are caring. The only concern is the price is a little high. My loved ones have a bedroom, bathroom, and living area in their apartment. They also include a microwave, sink, and a mini refrigerator. The staff were good at assisting my loved ones with hygiene care, bathing assistance, and medication management as some care types. The monthly fee includes the room, laundry, linen changes, housekeeping, utilities, tech fee (phone, WIFI, and cable for a small fee), all the meals, snacks, and beverages. I would highly recommend the community to others for their loved ones. There is transportation that the residents are able to use for shopping, and doctor's appointments. The activities include a non-denominational religious services, music, therapy animals, games, bingo, and more for the residents to choose from. They have physical therapy the residents to take are able to take advantage of. They have a hair salon on site for the residents. They have a podiatrist to come in to see the residents as needed.

Apprehensive at First, But Glad That the Staff Have Been Supportive

If you are looking for a personal care home, I would recommend you seriously consider Senior Commons at Powder Mill for your loved one. My loved one is adjusting to the community and the staff have been responsive to the family. The only issue that we have had was with medication; however, it has worked itself out. Bingo, games, and more are some of the activities available for the residents. There is a variety and choices of food for the residents to choose from.

Senior Commons is great

I would say to check this community out for you or your loved one. You may like it or you may not depending on your loved ones needs. They have activities like bingo, cards, work out classes, and more for the residents to do to stay busy and social. The tour was great and they were able to give me what i needed and what I didn't get I was able to call and ask questions.

a wonderful place

During our loved ones stay we thought Senior Commons was a very nice facility, everybody there was so friendly and welcoming. Our loved one was passed the point of being able to take part in the activities, but if your loved one was active enough they would really enjoy the activities. Our only problem we had at times, is we had to repeatedly try and get our loved ones basic care needs in a routine - for example, bathing, changing, etc.

Our Tour Experience

Senior Commons wasn't a bad place. I liked that it was more off the beaten track even though it’s right by a main thoroughfare. I knew somebody who lived there, and they said it was a good place.

Grateful for the care my mother received!

In [date removed] my father passed away while both parents were living in NC. Knowing Mom would have to now live near a child, she chose to live near me. I gave her a year after my father passed to make the move not wanting to uproot her so soon after his death. I talked to marketing at a couple of places and got floor plans for her and she choose Senior Commons at Powder Mill. She had wanted to live in independent living in a two-bedroom apartment. In August she fell and we decided it would be best for her to move more quickly and not spend a winter alone in NC. What was available for her at the time was a two-room suite in assisted living. We took it and prior to her even going into the suite, my husband and I got her furniture situated so when she walked in, it looked like home. She was so comfortable there that she never went over to independent living. In the 7+ years that she was at Senior Commons, she was treated with respect and care. She never had an unkind word to say about any of the staff. The only complaint she had when she first arrived was there was too much salt in the food, and after a town hall meeting where it was brought up by several residents, that was rectified. As my mother was nearing end of life, I feel like the staff took me under their wing to make sure that both of us were comfortable. It was a difficult time and they helped me get through it. They became family. This year has been difficult for all. I can’t imagine what they have gone through, including employee turnover, COVID with the residents as well as staff, ability to care for everyone the way they would like. But through all the years and especially this one, the right decision was made for Mom to live out her life at Senior Commons. And I thank them for the care they have shown.

Would not recommend

There attention to detail on how they managed their patients was not really good. They let our loved one get out of the building somehow, and he would fall out of his bed several times and broke his wrists.

Our experience with Senior Commons

I would want others to know that it is a beautiful facility, but when we could not be here and keep tabs on everything it is really hard to rate it. For the money we were paying, we did not feel she was getting adequate care that she needed. Before covid the food was excellent, she was very happy with it. Once the virus hit, the quality has gone downhill. They have had a lot of turnover of staff members/management.

Response from Senior Commons at Powder Mill

June 10, 2021

Thank you for your comments. We recognize that it is difficult to trust the care of someone that you love to a community; and that the restrictions with COVID-19 added to that unease. We encourage you to reach out to the Executive Director who has been at Senior Commons throughout the whole pandemic.

Professionally ran, independent care

The layout of Senior Commons was very accessible for all the residents, it had nice grounds with nice gardens. Everything was kept very clean. This community had bingo, music, church services and would even take little trips. Our loved ones room was very comfortable for him. They did serve a lot of chicken for their meals, but the meals were always well balanced, even if you were sick they would bring up your meal to your room. The staff members at this community were always very helpful, very nice, and very professional. They were always engaged with the residents.

A Nice home Away From Home

My mom was there for a short time. I would tell my friends, they were very great for the time and she was there for respite care. The food was good, and I was able to eat with my mom a couple of times. The food wasn't like home made food, but it was edible and I liked it.

A great experience

My mom hoped to stay in her own home forever but when she decided it was no longer safe for her to be alone Senior Commons was her first choice. Over the years she had been to most of the other assisted living facilities and always felt this was the best fit for her. So when it was time we were so happy they had space available. Its been about six months now and she has been very happy the whole time even during the pandemic. Everyone has been kind and goes out of their way to be helpful.

Great home for mom

When my mother decided it was time to sell her house we looked at many various options. When we visited Sr. Commons we both felt it would be a great place for her. She really loves it there. The staff are wonderful, courteous and extremely helpful. Mom has made many new friends. We both highly recommend Sr. Commons. It’s a great new home.
