I am impressed with the 2021 management and staff. Not long ago we were evaluating options and a fscility nearby had fifteen (15) Covid cases and The Lodge had none. Virtually everyone we have met there has been professional, caring, snd flexible. It’s all good.??
We chose this facility because she really liked the atmosphere, the location, the view from her balcony, and the fact it is a smaller facility. The room sizes here are pretty big compared to a lot of others that we toured. She is very happy here and I would definitely recommend them to others looking.
We have been nothing but happy with The Lodge at Natchez. They have been very helpful and responsive to our needs since the beginning. They made the whole move in process very smooth. The food here is excellent, it is restaurant quality food. We have had such a wonderful experience and we would recommend it.
It is a reasonably priced, reasonably caring, and reasonably acceptable place to put your loved one. The food quality varied. The room size and layout of the community was good. Outdoor space was limited. Staff had a range of abilities and concern, in general the staff was more than acceptable. Certain members of the staff were above and beyond excellent. The management was very good.
INCREDIBLE STAFF! They treated my grandmother like family for 3 years in memory care. They would call and update us. In the beginning when her mind was better, she had plenty of activities to do. They are great about taking them out different places to stay active. The food is great. The staff really takes care of their people.
I have family here. This business has taken a negative turn and care has gone down significantly. Employees are not happy. Many say they are unhappy and looking to work somewhere else. Employees and other families say that the Nursing Director has checked out. Many family members and residents never see the new Executive Director. Disappointed.
BAD EXPERIENCE! Our mother has enjoyed a super positive experience at Keestone, an assistant living facility in Florence, Al for nearly four years. Unfortunately our family has to elevate her care to a Level 1 (Beginning to Intermediate) Memory Care Facility. Our family elected to evaluate local options with a similar family environment as Keestone. We arrived at The Lodge at Natchez Trace on Sunday, [date removed] to see if the facility was an option for us. Following a positive tour with the nurse on duty we were introduced to [name removed] the Executive Director of the facility. Based on The Lodge having a Level 1Memory Care Unit facility where sundowner residents are locked in from 6 PM to 6 AM, we thought it was a logical transition option for our mother since she is socially interactive with fellow residents at her current facility during the day but would on occasion shift into roaming after dinner and evening. Prior to the Lodge we had visited 13 facilities so we had a good feel of Nashville's pricing structure for her level of care. During our conversation I brought up the pricing question to [name removed]. His initial base day rate seemed reasonable for 1 of the 5 units available in the Level 1 Memory Care Unit but indicated there were a number of adds on that could impact the final number. During the course of our conversation I mentioned our budget was somewhere in the $4,200 - $4,300 range. As we continued to listen we started to feel a sense of vagueness as it relates to a concrete price structure with several potential add on costs versus the simple tiered option plans we had experienced in our earlier meetings. In light of the vague add on costs we were happy to hear [name removed] offering to send someone to Florence the next day to provide an assessment of her current dementia state. Since we felt the facility landed in our top 4 we were agreeable to [name removed]'s offer since our mother was leaving a rehabilitation center on Wed. [date removed] and encouraged him to call [name removed], the Executive Director of Keestone, to hear her assessment of our mother's needs. In light of the short time span, I left the following day to start the process of packing her items at Keestone. On my drive down I ended up talking to [name removed]'s office since he was busy. They had talked to [name removed] and she said my mother was a high flight risk. I was definitely surprised by the comment since my mother had not left the Keestone premises without her family being with her for nearly four years in residence. I called [name removed] to hear what had transpired in her conversation. She had expressed the same general information regarding our mother as we had provided [name removed]. I called The Lodge and finally reached [name removed] and told him of my conversation with [name removed]. I suggested I three way [name removed], [name removed] and me on a call in order to insure we were on the same page from a communication standpoint. I followed up with the three way call and [name removed] added [name removed](one of the staff nurses), in on the conversation ([name removed] made a comment about another nurse on earlier call but I don't recall her name). I asked [name removed] to repeat her assessment which was identical to what she had told me and matched what I had told [name removed]. In general, [name removed] and [name removed] where somewhat quiet since the information provided on our call didn't match [name removed] and [name removed] version of what [name removed] had said. I encouraged [name removed] to send the staff person he had offered on Sun. to perform their own assessment to insure they were clear on their end. He said he would call back after further consultation with his staff. [Name removed] called the next morning at 10:28 AM, [date removed] and left a message on my cell saying they would be accepting my mother, if we were agreeable on our end. He said [name removed] would be following up from their end (Since the 24/7 unit was full the acceptance was obviously for one of the 5 available units in the Level 1 Memory Care Unit). After I finished lunch I called The Lodge at 12:41 to follow up on what the cost would be if we elected to move our mother to their facility (Since my ringer was off during lunch I didn't hear the call from [name removed] at 12:28 where she left a message with their pricing on my cell phone that I didn't hear until after my call in to her). When I talked to [name removed] she said the price was $4,829 per month. I mentioned our maximum budget was in the $4,200 to $4,300 range and if they agreed to that price range we could move forward on our end. She indicated she would have to talk to [name removed]. After waiting till 3:02 I called back requesting to talk to [name removed] but he was unavailable. After hanging up I reached out to [name removed] who was in charge of overseeing my mother's physical therapy treatment at Mitchell/Hollandsworth Rehabilitation Center for the past three weeks to see if she would ring The Lodge and provide her assessment of my mother's condition (her assessment of my mother was in line with [name removed]'s comments) in order to see if they were correctly pricing her care. At 3:06 I followed up with another call to [name removed] who was unavailable and talked to [name removed] again. I requested she talk to [name removed] at Mitchell Hollandsworth in order to make sure she was clear on my mother's exact care needs. At 3:56 I received a call from [name removed] saying they had decided to not accept my mother since their staff (nurse and [name removed]) viewed her as a high flight risk. I was amazed at the total reversal from [name removed]'s voice mail that morning accepting my mother for their facility. I asked if they had talked to [name removed] regarding her assessment of our mother and [name removed] said [name removed], a nurse and her had talked to [name removed] and they collectively felt she was a high risk. I requested she connect me to [name removed] to discuss and she said he was unavailable. I expressed my displeasure for being held up for two days in this process in addition to [name removed] not following up on sending someone on Monday from their organization to access my mother's condition. When I told her to have [name removed] call me or I would provide a negative review on line of how unprofessional they had handled this process, she said she would have him call me back. After I hung up I called [name removed] to hear what had transpired in her conversation with their staff. [Name removed] said only [name removed] and her had talked and no other individual was on the call ([name removed]'s comment about [name removed] and nurse on call???). I asked [name removed]if she and [name removed] talked on a speaker phone with [name removed]. She responded they were not on the speaker phone and it was only the two of them on the call. [Name removed] repeated their conversation back to me. In essence her perspective of my mother's mental assessment was in line with [name removed]'s assessment. When I didn't receive a call from [name removed] that day or the following business day of Wed. [date removed] I elected to follow up as indicated to [name removed] with my on-line rating of their company in light of their unprofessionalism. Several notable missteps: 1) [Name removed] told us he would send someone to Florence the next day (Mon) to make an assessment of my mother's mental condition. Result: [name removed] didn't send anyone to Florence for my mother's assessment. If he had followed through all of this wasted time could have been avoided. 2) Follow up four way conference call between Keestone ([name removed]), The Lodge at Natchez Trace ([names removed]) and myself where [name removed] provided a clear assessment of my mother that she was not a high flight risk which
My mom has settled into this community nicely. She is starting to enjoy the activities and doing them. She has met some people and is starting to make friends. The staff at the community is friendly and helpful very caring. The community has always been clean and well maintained from what I've seen. She is enjoying the food . I would recommend this community
My love one is doing well with her move to this community. We feel she is safe, and in good hands. They have a very good staff, and they are taking good care of her, and her needs. The community is neat, and tidy whenever we come to visit. The experience is going very well for us in this community, and I would recommend it.
I have no complaints about how things are going for my self since I have made the move into this community. It is a very safe and comfortable living environment and I could not be happier. I enjoy my dinning experience as well as other activities with the other residents. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone.
I thought this facility was absolutely beautiful and had a lot of great amenities available to all of the residents. The staff where informative and had a lot of great information to offer my loved one and I. The rooms where spacious and had a lot of extra space which I thought was a great addition. They just could not meet the needs of my brother medically.
Clean facility with generally friendly staff. Only had 3 week experience but it was good overall, with no major complaints. The air handling system was noisy at times, but for a short stay was not a problem. The food was good, in fact really good, and the chef was very helpful in addressing specific food needs. For our purposes, which was respite care, would likely use The Lodge again.
This was a top-notch facility for my short term rehab needs and care. The staff was most helpful, and the residents kind and welcoming. The food was outstanding.
We love it. We haven't had any complaints. They have been great to work with. They were pretty comparable to other places in cost. They really were an answer to prayer.
The management is so afraid they may have to do something. They see you coming they walk around the building to come in the other door. The nursing staff is wonderful. The lady in the management, is so stark and sterile, very impersonal. They don't have that friendliness feel, and the halls are all stark and sterile. They make excuses for the maintenance people but they go cheap on the maintenance. They have one guy and he is stretched too thin, even being a new building.
the facility is very nice and clean as well the staff takes care of my loved one very well i do recommend this place i gave it a 5 star rating and the staff is very friendly i gave the friendliness a 5 star rating as well the value was very important i rated them a 5 star
Everything is great, except being understaffed. The food is really good, they activities for my mother can participate if she likes. They do have transportation there if needed. It is very plain and nice, only a year old. Everyone is real nice and friendly.
I would carefully take into consideration a few things with the Lodge: 1 - the director's competence 2 - the fact that most of the staff members smoke 3 - the education they provide to their healthcare professionals and all of the staff 4 - the care level and ability of nurses 5 - activities 6 - crisis management 7 - they don't moderate nutrition for the residents 8 - memory care unit and number of staff per residents
We have had a few issues with The Lodge at Natchez Trace, and they mostly stem from the workers in the memory care area. I think the caregivers that they have working with the memory care patients could be better educated on the issues the people they work with are facing. Otherwise the community seems very nice, it is well kept, clean, and the residents in the assisted living section seem very well cared for.
We're very pleased with how things have gone with The Lodge at Natchez Trace! It's a great place, and they've made my loved one feel welcome and at home! The facility itself is nice looking, clean, and well kept. The staff have all been very friendly, helpful, and the care they provide has been everything she needs.
