  • Intimate setting

    I was so happy with it. I think the smaller size was really good and the staff got to know the residents better because of the smaller ratios. They had a visiting doctor which I felt was really convenient. The staff always greeted me by name, and they always knew where my mom was and what she was doing. I felt like it was a more family oriented and intimate setting because of the small size. They have a beautiful outdoor area for residents to enjoy. The chef was great and the food was excellent. The staff would call me to keep me informed as needed. The caregivers would communicate what my mom needed and really knew my mom. I visited 12 different places before choosing this one and I was happy was my decision.

  • Great place, but issues

    At first, the activities, as well as the appearance was extremely appealing to me for my mother. She was admitted mid-May 2018. After time, I noticed numerous changes in staff, including the activities director. My mother and staff always have had positive interactions - to my knowledge and observation. An outbreak of scabies occurred this summer. I expressed my concern about co-mingling of clothing and linens to be laundered and the possibility of transmission, as I had found my mother wearing another's clothes and someone else's bedding on her bed. I subsequently labeled all my mother's clothing and linens. Several weeks after treatment and assurances that the epidemic was gone, my mother began scratching. I immediately, consulted with the nursing staff and I was told that the scabies was not eradicated and that all the residents would need to undergo treatment simultaneously again. Treatment includes a topical application of permethrin - head to toe - and ivermectin. These are very potent drugs (insecticides) and repeated doses are problematic, from my point of view. These are elderly people whose systems not only have to metabolize their own medications, but also very potent medications for treatment of scabies. Yet, I have still found other's clothing in my mother's room. I brought this immediately to the attention of the new Exec Director and I have high hopes that many changes will be forthcoming. Somerford is a very nicely arranged living situation with garden, patio, walkways, and activities room. Most of the staff have always been friendly and they love my mother. I which them success in making necessary changes!
