i would recommend even during the pandemic

The community has a gated courtyard that we are able to do and social distance visit. The staff is very friendly and they are trying to do as many activities as they can. I would definitely recommend this community to others.

Horrible

Absolutely horrible. They are understaffed and they are poorly trained. The hospice company is horrible. Stay away

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to the staff at The Gardens of Green Ridge. The staff are dedicated to the care of the residents and their families. The staff are always willing to help with any issues that may arise weekends or week days, always an open door. Residents are taken on trips to the casino, shopping etc. The Gardens of Green Ridge was defiantly the best decision for our loved one.

Clean and welcoming

What a clean facility ! Staff greeted us on our tour with a smile, very informative and helpful. Provided excellent literature with resources. Like the spacious hallways ! I am comfortable bringing my mom to this facility, and will be bringing her there once finances are in order.

mom is happy and so are we

staff was extremely helpful and friendly; made the transition not only easy for my mother but for myself and my family as well. we go to visit every weekend and are thrilled with the care and quality of life gardens continues to provide her. she is always participating in tons of activities and socializing with other residents. everything has changed for us and for her since she has moved in and we couldn't be more thrilled with our decision

Beware. Short staffed, poor nutritional offerings, focused primarily on profit

This started out as a great place for mom when they first opened. Four years later, it's clear huge cuts have been made to staff, care, and nutritious meals. What's still good? The staff members are kind and caring. The facility itself is nice and spacious. Nothing special, but adequate. What's bad? The facility is so understaffed that residents sit in their own waste for hours before being helped. Residents who need to see a doctor are not provided any assistance getting to that doctor - they must arrange their own transportation. If they choose to see Dr. [Removed] (who is listed as the doctor for this and many other facilities with hundreds of patients), the wait is weeks long. When a resident is going through the transition from ambulatory to needing a wheelchair, for example, that three weeks is translated into multiple falls requiring hospitalization simply because a wheelchair cannot be approved by Dr.[Removed]. Unacceptable. If you send a family member here, be sure you can afford to hire a private nurse or a care assistant to come in regularly to check on your loved one, or be there daily to assist, as I see some families do. I'm also deeply concerned about the nutritional value of the food. We absorb fewer nutrients as we age - fresh, wholesome food becomes even more essential. High sodium, empty calorie food like hot dogs, mac and cheese and pasta simply do not provide the nutrients residents need. There is a salad offered - but iceburg lettuce and tasteless tomato offer little nutritional value. I doubt this facility would pass a thorough inspection - especially in light of the patient/care giver ratio. It's a highly profitable mechanism for the owner company, however. My mom fell multiple times and was sent to the hospital each time - nobody was aware that she was dehydrated, malnourished and needed extra care. SO disappointed in the Gardens - we were big fans when it first opened.

Nice tour

We toured The Gardens of Green Ridge. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a clean and well-kept community. It reminded me too much of a nursing home, and my loved one needed a more lively environment.

Work In Progress

So far it is still a work in progress for my uncle here at this community. We are still going through a transitional period. The staff is kind and trying their best to make him comfortable here. He has a some problems, so we are trying to get that under control. I like the fact they are willing to work with me in regarding his care plan. Overall I'am hoping things continues to go in a positive direction.

Review of The Gardens of Green Ridge - Scranton, PA

Biggest scam to Seniors. High rents with levels of care : medication fees with one full month's rent due prior to admission that is non-refundable. Poor nursing care; short staffed. Place should be shut down by the State.

Not like it's advertised

Where to begin...I'm a family member. I'll start with my initial reactions. The grounds are awful, messy and no place to relax in this nice weather other than a couple of seats in front and they are always filled. The patio areas seem to me like big cages with broken furniture. Not sure what happened with those. Inside, it's a clean, newer building. The front desk woman, Bernece, is lovely and very helpful since day one. The home is not very creative in it's design choices inside but still has that new feel. No obvious smells in the hallways, no signs of issues at a glance, it seems clean. Having talked with some of the other people who live there on my visits, they seem fairly pleased with the physical living arrangements as they are. Spent a little more time there and spoke to those residents and some issues became a little more apparent. I'm semiretired so I make some visits, usually in the morning, but also have visited during the evening a few times. I will add that I'm retired from health care so I know a little bit about regulations. Staff and staffing seem not so good (actually in all honesty, it seems bad). I heard someone yell and saw someone sitting on the floor in their room one day. I was the one who went to find a staff member and it took forever and apparently there is no nurse in the building. No one is even in the hall at night and a couple of lights were on for a very long time several times and staff attitudes seem very cold. I've heard them complaining in the hallway. My family member told me they complained to the administrator of the place and his attitude was "even worse". I've actually witnessed him admonishing loudly someone in the hall. I won't go into it here but it was mean and very inappropriate for me to hear. I hope that doesn't happen often. I do know about HIPPA and common respect. Other residents nearby during a recent visit heartily told me that nothing they have asked for has gotten done. "we asked him at a meeting but nothing ever changes" "he doesn't even talk to us""what are you going to do, other places in the area are worse" "the food is terrible but they don't care, they're cheap" "I don't want to complain, I'll get in trouble with him" I know they seem to have a big turnover because everyone is different often. It seems to be getting worse there instead of better. I don't make the decisions for my family member but I know it's expensive. I suggested a move at one point but they don't want to and that part isn't my business.

Friendly, helpful staff!

Overall things have gone very well with The Gardens of Green Ridge! Everyone has been very nice. They were helpful and polite during my tour, and explained everything perfectly. It's a nice looking, clean place, and they take great care of the people who live here. One word of advice that I'd give to other families who are looking is if you are interested in a room somewhere put a deposit down, even if it's just a small one, they can go fast!

Best place for your parents if they need dementia care

From the minute we walked in the door at The Gardens of Green Ridge we knew this was the place for our Mom to live. We were greeted with friendly, warm smiles by the staff. We went on a tour and we were very pleased with the amount of time that was spent with us, all of our questions were answered without us ever needing to ask a single question. Our tour was such a positive experience that we moved our Mom right in. She lives in their dementia wing and we are very pleased with her care and the staff are truly caring , loving people. They throw great parties and they go all out. This is a top notch place to be if your Mom or Dad needs to be somewhere . We sleep at night knowing she is in great caring and loving arms. God Bless this wonderful place.

CONCERNS

We are having a VERY hard time communicating about Mom's pills. She may be forgetful, but she knows her pills. We have requested them to be given at breakfast and dinner MANY times and they still are not. Also, she is not getting them all. What else do we have to do? If they are not given properly tomorrow (Sat.) and Sun. we will call whomever is above the director at Saber in Green Ridge. We thought we were getting good care as far as everything is concerned. We also signed a blank care plan which we were told we would get before we left for FL. Did not get this. Please advise - are thinking this was not the Assisted Living to place Mom in.

Nice place, overall

Things have gone very well so far with The Gardens of Green Ridge! It's a nice looking, clean facility, and it is in a nice area of town. The staff are very friendly and take great care of the residents. One thing I'd like to see them do better with is their activity schedule. It can be a little unpredictable, and I'd like to see them do more off-site trips.
