Real life influences everything

I would like to believe COVID restrictions tainted my review of the facility. Please keep that in mind as you read this. I was excited about Walker, when I toured the Assisted Living apartments and thought their activities would be great for Mom. Then COVID hit and everything was on lock down, and Mom declined significantly during isolation. All the reasons for picking Walker were gone due to COVID. As restrictions were eased Mom had a fall, and it has been one problem after another since. We signed Mom up for services and it started off ok, and lead to her care givers sending her to the hospital multiple times. As it turns out, her care giver noticed Mom’s stools were darker then they should be indicating blood in them, but did not share that with the paramedics until the 2nd time in one week they were called, after Mom passed out.. It should have been mentioned the first time they were called. Then as the paramedics are taking Mom out on a stretcher to the hospital, my arrives to this heartbreaking situation and the nurse on site tells my sister, your Mom can’t come back, she needs to much care. Seriously, awful timing. Not enough to feel run over by a truck but then the nurse puts it in reverse and runs her over again. Fortunately the hospital had folks to help us navigate the next steps. As is, I would not recommend Walker. Without COVID, I don’t know what I would say.

My mom has a dog and has some memory issues so we just couldn’t get it worked out for her. [Name removed] and [Name removed] were outstanding to work with....they tried very hard to make it work.
