My loved one seems happy here. They are now opening visiting your loved one by appointment. The staff is excellent to work with and are helpful.
Taking Mom and Dad there, Think this will be best option.
This is really just assisted living with a locked door in the memory care unit. The layout is not conducive to easy navigation for your memory impaired loved one. The staff is ill trained in memory care and some were so uncaring, made my dad cry a lot. If I hadn't bathed my dad, he would have smelled bad all the time. They would put clean clothes on him over soiled skin and never brushed his teeth. Lack of supervision at night is appalling. I stayed over night several times before we moved dad.
The staff as a whole is wonderful. My most experience is with the weekend staff, [removed names]. They're a great team. Very helpful, alert and patient with residents. They multi-task, despite their job title. Residents feel their love and concerns for them. It's seen on the residents face, they feel protected and loved. Thank You!!
The quality of care that my 90-something mother received at Thrive during the 6 months that she lived in the Memory Care wing there was, frankly, a little shocking to me. The staff seemed mostly young, mostly not very experienced, but okay for the most part (professional though not particularly compassionate); they tried to do their jobs, but there never seemed to be enough of them on the floor at any given time, so they always seemed rushed and too often seemed annoyed that they had to deal with frail elderly people. The administrators were hands-off, unresponsive, and bizarrely out to lunch -- *hugely* different than the admin I encountered at both the assisted care community where my mother lived before coming to Thrive and the memory care community where she went after Thrive (both of which, luckily, were lovely, extremely professional, and very easy to work with). Honestly I've never seen anything quite like it. After 6 months of watching my mom's health and peace of mind deteriorate, my husband and I moved her to another (really wonderful) memory facility in Jefferson where -- thank goodness! -- both staff and administration were superb, and (not surprisingly) my mother did much better. I just wish she hadn't had to spend half a year in a place where a whole lot of thought and attention (and money) seemed to have been spent on a pretty, new building and so very, very little seemed to have been spent on enhancing the quality of the lives of the elderly people who lived in it.
Our experience has been just great. Everything the community does is terrific. The community is new, fresh, and clean. Everyone is real considerate, the staff take pride to their job and I see them being courteous and attentive with the residents. Once they offered to make coffee and they always go out of the way to make them feel cared. My mom is thriving and looking much better.
Overall, I have been very pleased with Thrive. It is active, friendly,clean, and organized. It is such a relief to know that my family is safe and we'll attended. It is different from other facilities that I have known and visited; and that is all the difference in his life.
My mother-in-law moved here recently and things are going well. She's participating in many of the activities that the community offers and is adjusting well. She thinks the food is good but I have not tried it. We chose this community because it was a good price for what they offer. It's close to loved one's and where she lived as well.
My mother is starting to adjust to this community. She is mingling with the other residents,and starting to get all settled into the community. This is a nice community, I know she is being cared for very well here. The staff is great. There are activities offered for the residents. They do serve well balanced meals. This is a community I would highly recommend, it has worked out very well for us.
Caring attentive staff. Staff friendly and happy address needs promptly
