  • Well above average

    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.

  • Disappointed with the wrong turn

    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 contradicted [name removed]'s earlier comments to me that [name removed] said she was a high risk. In other words, [name removed]'s early claim of [name removed] saying my mother is a high flight risk is a false statement. If this were not the case he would have challenged her comments in our four person conference call plus he wouldn't have reversed his initial comments to leave a message on my cell phone the next morning that she was welcome in their Level One Memory Care facility. 3) In my conversation with [name removed] on Tuesday afternoon, [date removed] she indicated [name removed], a nurse, [name removed] from Mitchell/Hollandsworth and her were on a call where [name removed] supposedly said our mother was a high flight risk. I followed up with a call to [name removed] and she said it was only a conversation between [name removed] and her. [Name removed]said she didn't say our mother was a high flight risk. Her comments were in line with [name removed]'s comments. 4) As I told [name removed], I would provide a negative rating for their facility for the unprofessional experience I had encountered but provided an out by asking to talk to [name removed]. When I didn't receive a call back on Tuesday or the following day I felt I had provided ample opportunity for [name removed] to respond before I elected to post this rating. Anyone in a professional business environment would have responded in order to avoid a negative ding on their company. From our family's standpoint [name removed] and his staff created a very stressful experience in a very critical time frame. No family should experience this situation when they are seeking a place for their mother. If this serves as a wake up call for conducting business in a professional and timely manner, it was worth my time in writing this review. Fortunately we didn't move our mother into The Lodge at Natchez Trace because it would have been a huge mistake!
