Where is my mother?
The Administration and staff at Terra Bella were very nice and welcoming. My mother, the only African American out of 70 residents, was there for 2 weeks. She was supposed to be there for a respite 3 month period. On the 13th day I received a call at 5 a.m. My 94 year old mother had fallen, her head was bleeding, 911 was called, an ambulance took her away. I was then called about the incident and was told I'd be called again with an update. Nearly 3 hours passed. I called. They didn't know what hospital she was taken to and no staff had ridden with her in her disoriented condition. I asked for numbers of hospitals in that city. I called around but no one had heard of her. I called Terra Bella and was told that EMS drivers often don't tell where they take a patient. "Where is my mother?" One staff member placed me on hold, called around and found that she was in a hospital in my city, about 1 hour away. I rushed to the hospital and found her, head still bleeding some. She didn't go back

My father's transition has been smooth and he likes it there. Haven't seen any issues. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Very responsive. Staff is helpful and responsive. My father has liked the majority of the meals. They have activities scheduled every day. They have several excursions monthly as. TerraBella is fairly expensive but they are in line with other facilities.

Great Place!
We toured TerraBella Southport during our search for a Memory Care facility for our loved one. The staff at this facility was lovely. It was a very homey, cozy and comfortable atmosphere and had beautiful grounds. Good price. I would have chosen this facility for my loved one, but it was too far from me.

Terra Bella a great experience for residents
They are understaffed because they can't find anyone who wants to work! But the staff there worked very hard and helped with anything needed. Very helpful. We picked this community, because of the location, fair price, residents alert friendly, and fun activities enjoyed by many. Not wandering Alzheimer's patients everywhere. Beautiful landscaping and seasonal decorations very tastefully done! The activities director had very clever activities and holiday events as well. The residents had exercising as well as mind games to get the involved and engaged! The nursing staff was attentive and friendly just not enough for exceptional service. But that is the case everywhere these days. No one wants to work!

Happy with our choice
What sticks out the most about TerraBella Southport is the personal attention given to each resident by all staff. They make every effort to keep residents engaged through diverse activities. They encourage residents to socialize and foster their independence. I would definitely recommend this facility to others.

The cleanliness is a joke. Food is very sparse and usually not very good. Understaffed. Head nurse needs major customer /patient training. The value for the services is not equal.

Great assisted living with awesome activities and staff
Everyone is very friendly here. It is not too large of a facility, which is good. The staff are able to take care of each individual person and provide 1:1 attention. They know each individual person and call them by name. I feel like my friend is safe here. They have good safety protocols as well as good Coronavirus protocols. I like the fact that I can sign him out and take him to lunch or Walmart or wherever we would like to go. They're not restrictive about that. Yet, they don't let just anybody come in and take him out. They make sure that person is authorized to do so. The activities are fantastic. There is an activity director named [name removed], and he is fantastic. He makes sure that everybody is aware of all the activities that are available. They do crafts, games, puzzles. Once a week they bake cookies in the mini kitchen off the craft room. They also have a lot of people that come in at least once a week to do a presentation, for instance a singing group or someone who plays piano. They do exercise every morning after breakfast. They have a place out back for those who have green thumb where they can plant their own flowers or cultivate their own little section of garden. They take the residents out as a group on Wednesdays to eat lunch and run errands and just get everybody out and about if they want to. They don't force anybody to do anything, but they do encourage them so they don't just sit in their room all the time. Any time I've called down there, they've taken care of anything I've asked of them. And they are good at calling me if there's a question or issue or decision I need to make. My friend absolutely loves the food. There's a good variety, and the food is of good quality and tastes good. He's happy with the portion sizes, and he looks forward to every meal. I like that there's a place where families can come in and have a private dinner or get-together with their loved one outside of their room. They have an on-site hairstylist, which is so convenient. And the cost for that is very reasonable. I like the fact that they have plenty of medical services there for the residents, and they have their own medical team. They have a physician's assistant that comes in once a week. They take care of all the medications, both ordering and administering them. Every resident has a pendant that they wear, and If they ever need any help, they just push the button. He pushed his by accident once rolling over in bed in the middle of the night, and right away they rushed down the hall to check on him to see if he was okay. So we were very pleased with their response time.

Great place with one exception
The place is great, the people are very friendly and warm, with the exception of the Head Nurse [name removed]. Nurse [name removed] is extremely unprofessional, stubborn, uncaring and a bully. If you or your loved one don’t need the compassion of a good nurse this is a great place.

We chose Elmcroft of Southport because they had availability when we needed it. They were very easy to work with and welcoming to our family. They have a great personal service, the staff know everyone by name and seem to be very caring and positive. They are in the midst of changing management companies, we are hoping things stay as good as good as they are now. I would definitely recommend to others looking.

The Trip to Wilmington Is Worth It
My loved one isn't happy with the community. They have to wait on medication for a very long time. The medicine the doctor prescribed wasn't at any pharmacies in the area. Due to a medication not being on the list, my loved one isn't able to have a specific pain medication. The food is horrible. The doctor isn't available, except for maybe one day a week. I won't put my loved one in this community again.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the North Carolina regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about North Carolina regulations for Assisted Living.
