Review for Tessera of Brandon
Putting the People you care for in a facility is hard on its own but overall care is good. I would recommend the facility if the loved one is Mobil and not as wheelchair bound as my loved one. The management staff are on top of their items they are handling but there is some disconnect wit

Review for Tessera of Brandon
Putting the People you care for in a facility is hard on its own but overall care is good. I would recommend the facility if the loved one is Mobil and not as wheelchair bound as my loved one. The management staff are on top of their items they are handling but there is some disconnect with the nursing staff that actually handles the care. 8 out of 10 caregivers work wonderfully with the clients but there are always a few that spoil the bunch.The therapy group and the hairdresser that we have dealt with are wonderful. Loved one was pleasantly pleased with the kitchen and food. I have dealt with a couple facilities and this one is one of the better ones.

Review for Tessera of Brandon
After mom being there a year we feel confident that she is being well taken care of. She's not an easy person to please at times but they all have smiles and warm greetings when they see her and us. Primarily we choose it for location but also for how the surroundings were kept up and the people who work there attitudes and demeanor. They are always pleasant.

Tessera is Awesome!!!
Tessera is all fives. They have been great!!! Mom desperately needed 24 hour a day care and Tessera has provided that. Cost is only about 20% of what it would have been in her home.

There have been at least six MC directors in three years. 2020 to 2023. [name removed] was investigated by Adult Protective Services due to a unreported fall that resulted in a broken leg. The MC staff and director should have better knowledge of how to turn the bedridden residents, how to dress residents who have pain, and how to cut up food for those who can no longer use utensils. Food for those who can feed themselves with utensils is usually very good. The activities are good. The outdoor area for the MC is small, hot, and with sad landscaping. The MC office is lackadaisical with many wrong phone numbers and misplaced paperwork. The ladies at the sign-in area are the best! Since I have another family member in another MC facility in Tampa so I can say that [name removed] MC staff is not up to the standards that they should be as caregivers.

Families experience
Nice place, but it took them way too long to start helping my mom with her care. There were some health scares with swollen feet, etc, that remained unnoticed. That should have been addressed immediately. They took her inhalers away. And she needed them as she has COPD. People were very nice and they enjoyed the activities. Food was a bit salty at times for people with heart issues. Other than that, they liked the place. But they are glad to be back home while they still can.

A Happy Home!
I would rate all categories a 5 except maybe Activities. I would give them a 4. But they are working on that. Like today they have alpacas visiting! They have music every week. Lots of Bingo unfortunately my Mom is not a bingo player yet. Lol There's a new Director and she is awesome [name removed]. Receptionists are wonderful. ALL the staff are very friendly, helpful. Residents all seem happy. Lots of hellos & smiles. Med techs are fantastic and very kind. Kitchen are very willing to help with menus & special diet my Mom has. They are very accommodating & willing to make anything better. We are very pleased. This is Mom's second apt. Pulled her out of [community name removed] after 5 months, unfriendly staff & no help in the kitchen. Food was awful.

My Experience
While no place is perfect, Tessera was a cut above the other facilities I dealt with. The staff were always helpful: [name removed]at the reception desk, and especially the sales manager, [name removed], who went above and beyond helping me get my mother in there. My mother was always treated with respect and dignity during what ended up being the last few months of her life.

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 Florida 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 Florida regulations for Assisted Living.
