About 12 years ago, my sister-in-law was here and the facility takes title 19 patients. It’s certainly an older facility, I think maybe an old hospital, but the advantage that they have over everywhere else is that they offer apartments and all different levels of care, but they’re all within the same facility. I believe the difference in care, though, is that they have what the state requires – 1 staff person per 12 members. Whereas other places offer a more personalized approach. It isn’t a bad facility, just isn’t wonderful. There are a lot more new places available now.... Read more

Worse and worse

My parents lived here for 4 years. At first, it seemed like a good decision, despite a terrible early stint in "skilled nursing" (really bad care) after an operation. My parents' apt. was fine, my dad played pool in the atrium with friends while my mom walked around it. The food was at least edible. But every year, lack of attention to resident needs worsened. Broken washing machines went unfixed for months. Things that needed cleaning or replacing did without. Services got cut even as fees increased. No more free transportation—$75 to run errands or go to the doctor? The woodshop closed, ending my dad's hobby. Food got worse and worse—my folks sometimes threw dinner away, and once said, "We weren't even sure what it was." They knew how bad assisted living/skilled nursing were, so they moved to [facility name removed] before it came to that. The difference is night and day. Real care, real service, a real community. Yes, it's more $. And worth it. Seniors deserve better than The Groves.
