  • Mom is worse than when she arrived

    Our mom came here in Feb 2019. She has dementia, but medication has helped her manage her behavior. She walked, talked and danced when she came in February. She was in Personal care, but enjoyed going to dances in Memory care. She started using a walker early April and then she fell later in April. She was first sent to the hospital and then to rehab. That's when we learned she suffered muscle weakness due to lactic acidosis because she laid on her side for a long time. In rehab she walked with a walker, but with someone behind her, as she feared falling again. She came back to personal care at the Terrace in early May, but we all agreed she needed to move to memory care for full care. New mgt took over mid June. Things started to go downhill. Staff not responding to phone calls, concerns, etc. Our mom shared a room, as this was all they had in memory care. Finally in early August she moved into her own room on a different floor. That's when the new floor's aide noticed she had a blister, covered with a band aid. We knew nothing about it. No real explanation given. Our mom became incontinent because she would call for bathroom assistance that didn't come in time. We would find urine drenched clothes in her hamper. Urine stained sheets on her bed. She doesn't even try to walk anymore, just stays in her wheelchair. On [date removed] my sister and I were both visiting. We assisted our mom to the bathroom and saw she had a bedsore. I went to get the nurse in charge and the memory care director. Both said they knew nothing about it. How can that be? Our mom has full care. Someone is bathing her, dressing her, changing depends. We called the new Director that day. When she finally called back she was defensive and rude. I waited until Friday for her to follow-up. She didn't, so I called again. She called back and had no info as to how this happened. Finally Wound Dr came that Monday and said she has a stage 2 bedsore. That blister we saw in August was stage 1. He had to debride the area and gave treatment instructions. This is so not a place to put your parent. Our mom went from walking and dancing, to a fall that left her scared to walk, then a bedsore, dirty linens and weight loss. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

  • A Memory Care Worth Taking a Look At

    I see real efforts from the staff in Memory Care to address the residents' individual needs.

  • Not for individuals needing special care.

    Mom went to the Terrace after coming off of rehab from a fall. Unfortunately after 3 months, she fell and spent 7 days at Chestnut Hill Hospital. They wound up not treating the fall but the multiple bed sores that had been allowed to increase and get worse while at the Terrace, one so bad it had to be operated on. Overall, the terrace is okay if your love one doesn't need special care.
