The staff is extremely friendly, caring, and helpful at The Pointe. From what I've seen, they are very attentive to needs that arise. The place is generally clean, well-lit. Places that need upkeep are getting just that. From what I understand, as a unit becomes available, flooring is being replaced with hardwood flooring, probably laminate. The move-in process was strange because as my loved one moved in, they were being evacuated for a hurricane, so it's hard to judge that process. The theft is an unfortunate issue, but my loved one has learned to be savvy in hiding things and making sure that she has no cash in her room.

Stay on top of things

It would be good for new residents to clarify all care needs. They didn't need to help my family member with bathing, dressing, showers. They charged him an additional fee assuming this need (though we discussed his needs at intake). We're still waiting refund of those fees. Food isn't too great. If a resident has a personal fridge, they might enjoy having some fresh fruits, snacks if that meal isn't to their liking. There were mixups with his medication administration for the first week after admission. This issue is now resolved, but family has to check on this to safeguard the patient safety. They've had some turnover there, so I think they mean well (but follow through is not always there). I'm a tough crowd, having worked in an ALF and having seen how care can vary based on family visibility/involvement. My dad is stable and they are nice enough.

Highly Recommended

My loved one was previously a resident at The Pointe and everything was great for her at this facility. The staff was amazing. They keep you abreast of all that's going on. The move in process was easy. My loved one and other members of our family liked the meals and always said that they were good. I would highly recommend The Pointe. They were amazing to my loved one right up until her passing.

a challenging time of life

The Pointe as a whole has been a blessing. We thank the staff who share their compassion for residents and our mom, including daily care, planning activities and family gatherings! Our concerns are the disrespectful attitudes of the staff (some) towards moms questions or needs, adding to her anxiety and feeling of being unvalued. The inconsistencies of scheduled care such as med dispercement, showers, dining, laundry and room cleaning are ongoing. We are hopeful these areas will improve.

Nice Community...Overall it was a good experience.

The reason we gave the cleanliness 3 out of 5, is because our loved ones room was a little unclean by the friends and the bed was awful. However, the environment at the community is very friendly and the clients are really nice to talk to. We would recommend The Pointe community to other families based on the experience we have had so far.

Not recommended

My loved one was a resident at The Pointe, we recently moved him out. The facility is dirty. Poor service. Poor food. Medication management was poor. Communication with after hours staff was laughable. I understand it's hard to hire these days, but the level of care isn't worth the money. I would not recommend this facility to others.

My Tour Experience at The Pointe

I loved The Pointe when we toured the community. My favorite, but it's self-pay only. Watching the way staff and residents communicated with each other was heartwarming.

Disappointed and Frustrated

We had a bad experience at The Pointe. They seemed to be understaffed. Some employees were not focused on their job. They were not giving timely attention to the residents. The biggest problem we faced was my loved one needed help eating, and they were not assisting her with that. They seemed to do well with residents who did not need as much care.

Tour experience

I toured The Pointe and the staff were great. We went to the memory care unit and they only had 2 people in there. One man was in the fetal position and the other lady was crying. They said she cried all the time and I just could not put my loved one there with that happening all the time. It was just not large enough, I wanted him to be around other people.

Not As Expected And Not As What It Seems

This was the worst place I have ever seen for not caring, filthy, and negligence. I wouldn't recommend the community to anyone, it was a terrible experience. Don't expect medications to be given to the residents, as they never provided my loved one with their medication needed on a daily basis. The staff weren't good when I had questions or concerns. They didn't respond to phone calls. They didn't even make the doctor appointments that were supposed to happening for my loved one.

Pros & Cons: For self care, it's a wonderful place. But they're not prepared to handle level of care changes.

My loved one went in pretty much self care, although he did have Alzheimer's. He had some pretty negative feelings about being placed at any facility, not necessarily The Pointe specifically. Once he moved in, his condition rapidly declined to the extent that he needed more help. The Pointe took a while to recognize that. Once they did recognize it, they did assist with getting hospice care set up. But even at that point, I had to have a stern conversation with The Pointe about the level of care that he needed, and I don't think it should have had to come down to that. After that conversation, they moved him to a higher level of care, but hospice had already picked him up full time 24/7 by that time.

I give this five star because when I arrived, there was some interior improvements being done, which gave me the impression the facility was in an upgrade mode, an d this was a plus. I met with [name removed] and some of the staff, and they all gave me that 'warm and fuzzy' feeling (okay my gut gave me a good nudge). The facility is small, which seems to provide more of a 'at home' atmosphere. The rooms I viewed were clean. Additional key highlights of The Pointe is the small number of tenant spaces, close to the VA Hospital, and [name removed] sat down with me and we were able to discuss the financials, unlike at the other locations, I was given a price list. That said, I've selected The Pointe.

The Pointe

The staff was very good, it was a very small community on my mother's level. Each resident pretty much has their own person caring for them. The care was very individualized. They always had amazing entertainment and the food was exquisite. They would invite me to participate in activities with my mother often, which I really enjoyed.
