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.
