Vila Nova Place

I came across a few reviews for Vila Nova Retirement Home in Cambridge, some nice and truthful others not so much, they were completely misguided, as I personally experienced being there with my mom for quite sometime. So, in good conscious I could not just let this go and felt that I had to respond. I had my mom at Vila Nova Place located at 611 Dunbar Rd. In Cambridge until such time as my mom required more specific care due to her Altzeimers/Dementia and it’s progression. Upon my mom’s admission to Vila Nova a full Cognative Assessment was done and discussion of how much could be done in the particular setting for mom. Being a Retirement Home although able to accommodate semi independent residents at some point my mom would require more. That was well explained to the family as not to create a misunderstanding going forward, so we knew from the beginning that we would have to find a suitable Nursing Home when the situation presented itself. The Staff and Owners were very kind, displayed professionalism, always very attentive to the needs of all their residents and quite often would go over and above, very trustworthy. When mom needed help with showering just as a few others did, LHIN would come in to do that for all the residents that were in need of extra help. The LHIN employees that came in were also very caring individuals. Every week they have movie night with snacks etc., in the evenings there’s tea time and let’s not forget the evenings that owner [name removed] will play the piano and all have a sing a long, solos are also to be had by [name removed] for their entertainment. It’s always a fun time when the ladies have their hair done by the hairdresser at the home. The food is always great and plenty of it, love those deserts. Once the food is served to each table the kitchen staff start to clean up and may also start preping for the next meal, kitchen is always clean. The Housekeeping staff also makes sure the Home is well kept. As for the Nursing Staff, they do a terrific job performing their nursing duties, unlike the idiotic review saying that they clean the toilets....the Nursing staff are there to only perform their nursing duties, which they do a super job, very caring people. ALSO great that there is a Staff Doctor. I never experienced seeing any of the residents unhappy. With the exception of a couple situations where they felt abandoned by their own family. Some individuals would bring their elderly family member to the home and disappear for weeks at a time or longer. There’s always someone available and willing to help, whether it’s a PSW, who by the way we’re great, nurses and ofcourse the owners. [Names removed] are a “Hands On” kind of people, making sure everything and everyone is just right and everyone comfortable , they sure wear their hearts on their sleeves (as the saying goes) very compassionate in all they do for the Resident’s comfort and well being. Me personally along with my family wish that our mom was still a resident at Vila Nova, unfortunately mom had to go into a Long Term Nursing Home specifically for her desease. To those people who felt they had to lie about Vila Nova, their staff and owners must have certainly an AXE TO GRIND and/or big issues in their lives that find themselves having to lash out wherever it’s easier, their frustrations are obviously misplaced. When I mentioned the reviews to my family members, it took them awhile to pick up their chins off the floor, they were appalled that some people would go to those lengths. It takes all kinds.

Be Informed

If considering Vila Nova for a loved one with Alzheimer's or Dementia, make sure that you are asking the right questions and investigating thoroughly before making a decision. This retirement home does not have the resources for residents with Alzheimer's/Dementia. There is a lack of communication between staff and management which makes it difficult for residents and family members. Management will tell you what you want to hear when seeking a place but things change quickly once you are there. Also, make sure that there is a proper cognitive assessment done on your loved one so that they are aware of what is required to properly care for the person. Be aware of charges that will made to you regarding “extra services” with no notice. Management has trouble being collaborative with other Health Services that come into the home including LINH, a lot of conflict which also makes it difficult to provide the care that your loved one requires. It is important that you have everything in writing as stories seem to change consistently. There is also a lack of confidentiality between management, staff and residents.
