My mother was placed approximately two months ago in memory care of this facility and recently passed away. During her brief stay, I found the faciliy to offer an array of actitivities for the residents to keep them busy and involved. Place is clean and staff friendly. My mother was always clean. Meals were nutritious. Always felt she was safe. Placing a loved one is never an easy decision. Based on my mother's brief stay, I would recommend this particular facility.

Do not bring your family here

My uncle was here for a about a week and died. He never had any health issues, the only reason he was placed here was because the family was not able to give him the 24/7 care. They claimed he had a heart attack but I became aware that even though he had a doctors order that his food was to be cut up and fed to him, they left him and he choked on chicken and that is how he passed away. I don't understand if there are staff there 24/7 why wasn't he helped? I had friends who also had family members that went there and they died within a week or two even though there was nothing medically wrong expect that they could not fend for themselves, there should be no reason why 4 people died in one week. They ran out of gloves and was touching people, their food, their medicine, etc with their bare hands. I have not seen anyone wash their hands. This guy named [name removed] that works there gave me the worst attitude when I confronted him about the use of gloves. Plenty of others shared the same story.

I Can't Say Enough

First of all, it has been less than 24 hours and my father is already doing and feeling much better. I have desired for my father to be in an environment where he would be in an activity driven community well, The Viva Senior Living "Experience" has answered the call many many times over. I appreciate the warm and caring "good vibes only" my brother and I received during our very first visit. Special Thanks to Ms. [name removed], who worked and walked with my family and I every step of the way. I'm so grateful, I believe my father will live a longer, happier and more joyfully productive life now that he has been blessed to be apart of Viva <LIFE> Senior Living Community...

Nightmare

We brought our mom their based on a good recommendation. The sales department was very compassionate and delivered a message of the facility being a close knit family that everyone keeps an eye out on our love ones. We moved her in as respite. Realizing she wouldn’t be able to return home. In less than 30 days it was recommended to move her to memory care. Sad to say memory care seems to be no man’s land. She turned for the worse with no ability to reach out when needing assistance. We had a few family meetings with the facility and promises we’re made but the never did anything change. Unfortunately my mom passed. No one from the staff was there when we came to pick her up her remains, not one word of condolences. A week has passed and still nothing. It hurts to think we placed her there for care and now she is gone. Management doesnt understand the needs of their residents. I can’t figure out what She was paying for as a high level of care! Upset with ER trip.

Worst care givers ever

My mother went into this facility able to be self reliant and after 2 years and three falls of which we we were unaware of along with terrible care my mother’s overall condition went from good to bad. She was moved from one room to another for no apparent reason which caused her to have another fall while trying to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night . This fall put her into the hospital. At this point we moved her to another facility where she receives much better care and oversight. Do not listen to the company A Place for Mom if they did their research they would never have recommended this place. Do your own research for your loved ones.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and the community was really nice, but because of the size we thought it might be too overwhelming for our loved one. We also thought because its so big, the personal one-on-one care wouldn't be there as much. However, the community was still really nice and very clean.

Thank you for sharing your experience with families here. We understand that choosing the right personal care community is not a decision that anyone takes lightly. I would like to personally assure you that our residents do enjoy one-on-one care, and I would be happy to put you in contact with some of our other families so that you may hear how their experiences have been. Please know that I am always available for questions and look forward to hearing from you. Reach out to me any time at Justin.Lee@CommonwealthSL.com. Kind regards, Justin Lee Executive Director

This was the best choice for our parents

Commonwealth Senior Living gets 5-stars across the board. We absolutely love everything about this community and the staff members. Anytime we have a concern it is addressed immediately and they explain how it will be fixed. We are so pleased with the love and care our loved ones are receiving. We finally have a peace of mind. The staff members do this because its a job, but they genuinely care for these residents are treat them like family. Also the location is very convenient for us to visit, and they are very open for families to visit.

Good for respite stay

While our loved one was there the staff members were very friendly. The activities were still pretty limited but they did have things like bingo and brain exercises. We do think the value for cost is right on par with the other communities we looked at.

Tour of Commonwealth

We did a virtual tour with Commonwealth and it was a very good tour, it was a staff member who was taking us around showing us the facility. We did not choose this one because of the location, it was just too far of a drive for us.

Closes Thing to Being Home

I highly recommend the community. They have worked with me during the pandemic and any changes that have happened during my loved one's stay. They are very friendly oriented. They reminded me of how I did business years ago. This made me feel good about my loved being there. My loved one feels like she is family there. The staff is very good about the care of my mother. They contact me and let me know of anything that my loved one needs.

1-9 ratio in memory care - looked clean - looked and sounded like they really observe and get to know the residents and work with what they need using techniques learned from "Teepa Snow." Had a small courtyard - looked very plain but they work with patients who like to garden. Concerns = Doors are unlocked but can lock. Residents sometimes end up in each others rooms - can walk around at night as well

Would recommend this community

This community at first was named Greenfield, and the people who worked while it was Greenfield were amazing, and the meals that were provided were really good. Greenfield was bought by another company which is why it is now called Commonwealth. The food now made at Commonwealth is not as good as it was before. We thought this community was pretty reasonably priced. Everyone who worked in the care services were always so kind. This community has two floors, each floor having their own dining room. The therapy is done in the basement which is just an elevator ride away. Each floor had their own parlor. Our loved one had a private room that had a bed, TV, their own bathroom, a double closet, and a kitchenette.

A great friendly atmosphere well managed.

My Mother is a resident at Commonwealth Senior Living (Hbg.) From the very beginning she enjoyed the relaxing peaceful setting. When she first arrived the family was very concerned about her happiness & the transition from her home to senior living. Thankfully she engages regularly in group activities, devotional services, movie theater & art classes. She enjoys her fellow residents, the compassionate staff & the connectivity. We cannot say enough about [names removed] just to name a few. I have noticed the staff seems very respectful of my Mother's needs and her day to day happiness. Whenever we have a question or concern [names removed] are always very helpful. My Mother enjoys her meals because of helpful kind dietary employees. My Mother's room is always kept very clean & the facility is decorated so beautiful with seasonal items which brightens up the residents days. It is such a relief to see Mom happy and taken care of thanks to the wonderful staff at Commonwealth.
