05/07/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I HAVE TOURED THIS FACILITY AND THE STAFF SEEMS VERY PLEASANT AND HELPFUL. THE FACILITY WAS CLEAN AND EVEN HAD LUNCH AND THE FOOD WAS EXCEPTIONAL

10/18/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The Edwinola is dangerous! Don’t take my word for it look up an article published in The Miami Herald on 05/04/2011 titled – NEGLECTED TO DEATH Part 2: Assisted-living facility caretakers unpunished: “There’s a lack of justice”. About half way through the article they tell a story of how Dorothy Archer was woefully neglected by this home. The company that runs the Edwinola is called Sovran Management Company, LLC and they also run other equally horrible ALFs in the area like Oakview Terrace in New Port Richey. Check them out for yourself!

09/24/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I very reluctantly gave this facility 1 star because I was required to.
We buried my great-aunt on Saturday. She has been a resident at Edwinola for several years. Within the past year, the staff at Edwinola, I would ASSUME (however, I am now having my doubts) with medical guidance, determined that my aunt was suffering from dementia with Alzheimer's type symptoms and transferred her to the Alzheimer's/dementia floor. On September 8, 2012, my aunt was eating dinner on that SAME Alzheimer's/dementia wing, with other residents. They were served hot dogs, among other things. My family and I are unsure of the details, primarily because Edwinola has cut off all contact with us (probably on the advice of legal counsel) and was very vague in the sparse answers it did give regarding the situation; however, as my aunt was eating the aforementioned hot dog, she got choked. Again, we do NOT know what first aid/CPR measures were taken by the staff at Edwinola because they have not disclosed those nor have they turned over any incident reports, but they were unable to dislodge the hot dog for some period of time. They then called 9-1-1 (which should have been an automatic first response when the choking was noted) and had to wait for the ambulance to arrive to dislodge the hot dog. My aunt was without oxygen for who knows how long, and we do know that her heart stopped beating at one point and the EMT's had to shock it back into rhythm. My aunt was taken to the nearest hospital's ICU, which, by the way, was the most wonderful facility I've ever experienced -- VERY caring and conscientious, until she was examined by a neurologist on Monday afternoon, at which time the family learned what we already suspected, that her brain had been deprived of oxygen for such a length of time that she had NO brain activity remaining save that of the brain stem, which controls a person's major organs. She was on "life support" until Tuesday afternoon, and then transferred to the HPH Hospice Facility (again, another WONDERFUL facility that my family would HIGHLY recommend), made comfortable, and loved out of this world by her daughter on September 15, 2012. We have no answers from Edwinola as to why my aunt is no longer with us. We do not know if they knew, or attempted to perform, the Heimlich Maneuver, if there were any staff members even in the dining room to notice that my aunt was choking, or how my aunt came to choke on a hot dog in the first place (whether she was left to cut it up herself, whether the "so-called" 3 staff members that are "always" present during dinner -- although none of us, her family who visited, can ever recall seeing three staff members in the entire facility at the same time -- cut up the hot dog for her and did not cut it into small enough pieces, or whether they simply gave my aunt, and the other dementia patients a hot dog on a bun similar to those you would get at a baseball game!). The facility itself is in a beautifully restored old hotel, as one prior reviewer commented, the rooms were adequate, although not "first-class" (but we did not expect that since, as the last reviewer pointed out, many of the residents are unable to pay for their "care"), but quite obviously, the CARE of the residents is not only sub-par, but downright negligent! Since any family's first concern when placing their loved one in a "retirement home", "assisted living facility", whatever you want to call it, is OBVIOUSLY the care that family member will receive, I would recommend that if you are considering Edwinola, you avoid it like the plague!! May justice be done for my great-aunt, and my no other person's mother, aunt, or any type of loved one suffer the fate of ours!!

10/11/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I love The Edwinola's southern charm! My uncle lived here and was very pleased with the food and companionship. He had to move back home for financial reasons. He would love to be able to return.

07/09/2009 An OurParents User Writes: The Edwinola is a great place to stay. Much better than most assisted living communities. They go over and above to make you happy. I suggested you stop by the Edwinola and see for yourself.

Response: I explained to this family member the differences between assisted and independent residents. If more care is wanted, they have to make their loved one assisted.

04/18/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Facility should be rated by someone other than the director. I don't get the response I should when problems come up, independent living means just that, don't expect more, you are on your own. I wasn't notified the many times my mother was hospitalized. No one answers calls at night, no way to contact someone if you have concerns. I'm not pleased, I would like them to be more attentive. I hope they will take this rating seriously and improve.
