My father had a stroke over a year ago and is suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Blakehurst is THE place for someone in his position. I cannot imagine what his world is like. Yet, the staff here are very patient and understanding. Monthly meetings are held with my mother and they are very concise and thorough with going over every detail about my father's daily state.
They are very good in calling my mother with matters concerning his health and well being.
Blakehurst is very clean, friendly and they have many activities the patients can participate in.
Highly recommend Blakehurst for the elderly.
Blakehurst is as good as it gets!
My sister-in-laws mother was recently admitted to Edenwald which is nearby Blakehurst in Towson. She said her mother was confined to her room, no activity, no physical therapy, no contact with the outside world. I've come to visit her mother and they've put her in bed for the night at 4 in the afternoon, leaving her alone in the dark and scared. Also, the nurses do not put her call button within reach, so she can't even call if she does need up for toileting. They dress her in the same clothes for multiple days, though she has plenty to wear. She recently lost all vision and I found her in the dining room, full foods in front of her and no one to help her eat. She tried, but couldn't even reach the plate. I stayed and fed her while she sobbed about the neglect. It sickens me! Edenwald is all looks and no service. The staff is usually sitting in the halls chatting with each other while call lights need attention. I've reported this to management, to no avail! Who is going to stand up for these residents!!! My sister-in-law is now looking into moving her mother to Blakehurst.

Description of Chestnut Grn Hlth Ctr Blakehur in TOWSON, MD

Number of Beds : 42

Blakehurst offers assisted living, independent living and rehab services and amenities for seniors. Assisted living is a good solution for seniors who require a little help but desire to preserve their self-reliance. Why choose assisted living? Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to a more fulfilling life. With assisted living, you'll find senior-friendly living options and a dedicated staff. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Housekeeping, laundry, social programs, and local transportation are usually provided, too. This community, a comprehensive independent living community, allows you to do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can tie you down and take up your time. Serving both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as senior apartments, retirement villages, and communities for 55 and older. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a variety of community amenities, services, and programs tailored specifically for seniors. Your personal belongings, such as furniture and favorite mementos, can move to your new home with you. With maintenance, groundskeeping, and housekeeping taken care of, seniors can focus on goals and passions instead of the daily demands of home ownership. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. Community services and amenities usually include fitness clubs, dining facilities, swimming pools, golf courses, hiking trails, social events, and more. Blakehurst provides a low-maintenance lifestyle and the assistance seniors need to enjoy retirement. With comprehensive assisted living, independent living and rehab services, and with a caring environment, seniors can feel relaxed and secure. An assisted living community provides help when necessary with the goal of supplying the services required to stay as autonomous as possible. With independent living, you can do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can take up your time. Call for more information on how you can become part of the Blakehurst community.
