What an awful place to have people who cannot speak for themselves be placed their by their relatives. Dingy dated and depressing. Bathrooms are too small to adequately clean anyone. Not a safe place. No place to walk without bumping into carts wheelchairs and bumping into people walking in narrow corridors. Food! Junk. Mostly carbohydrates, little fresh fruits or vegetables for anyone. Everybody looks like they get the same gpfoods even if they weigh over 300 pounds or 100 pounds. The staff try to work with a smile but you can see they are also concerned with the poor facilities and the look of everything looking so dingy for patients and guests who visit them. There is not a nice visiting area to chat or walk around with patients. Why is this place still receiving federal funds ? Why are we putting elders in these places??

    Response: Dingy,Depressing and Smells! This place does not have amenities for residents, residents have to do rehab in the hall since there is no where to walk. Residents must go down the hall to shower since there is no shower near their room. Rooms are crowded and residents fall frequently. Everyone gets the same food regardless of medical condition. Residents are left in their beds without being cleaned on a timely manner. Residents are not engaged and very limited activities for socialization.
    This place is not clean and needs major renovation.

    Anyone praising this "facility" obviously works there or is getting a kickback. 100% agree with the comments the place is depressing, lacking in staff and the food is horrendous. My father ended up there and no one seemed to know how to care for him. If he spoke up or refused meds they just shipped him off the the geriatric psych unit at a hospital many miles away. after the 3rd time I refused to have him go back (I had been on a wait list for another facility). Thankfully he got into the other facility and never a problem. Sadly he passed last fall - but Brigham Manor is a pit.

    Poor in every category. Your organization should be embarrassed to recommend them to anyone!

    Response: Agree 100%

    Response: This place is not fit to house a pet let alone a loved one! Residents are neglected in their own waste. Food is deplorable! No place for residents to have recreation. Bathrooms are too small and have no showers and residents have to use a shower in the hall! Staff is not responsive and residents are not engaged and left in their rooms most of the time.

    Wonderful care. The only place to go in Newburyport!

    Response: No doubt a staff member wrote this. No explanations why this place is so wonderful. Hmm

    Response: Dirty, dingy, dilapidated and lacking in customer service. Wouldn't put a pet here let alone someone needing service. It is A all right - A for Appalling!

    Response: You say this is a wonderful place? YOu must be deaf and blind during your visit. Did you see people just sitting there and laying in their beds with no interaction? Did you see patients not being attended to in a timely manner? Did you see everyone having the same slop for a meal? Did you see that the residents have no place to for recreation or rehab and the only place they can walk is up and down the hall? Did you see that the place is dirty and needs paint and updating?
    Take off your blinders! I am sure you wouldn't want to be in a dump like this yourself for for your loved one!

    I visited this dump today and we are pulling my mother out of it as soon as we can find another facility. There was ONE nurse on duty for the ENTIRE FLOOR and she was unpleasant and obviously unhappy. There were only two nurses aides for the entire floor on duty. It is dated, dirty, ugly, and cramped. The rooms are tiny and this converted Newburyport Mansion has not been updated for 20 years. The halls are tiny and there is just ONE central room on the floor for residents to escape to. It is the last place I though my mom would end up and I am going to see to it she is moved as quickly as possible. She cried to me today and it broke my heart. She knows nursing homes as she was a volunteer in one for 10 years, and ran a 5 star hotel herself in the glory days. Her meal tonight has ice cold onion rings on the plate. No nutritional value except for canned sweetened orange slices. I hope to die well before I am ever faced with this sorry reality. This is the THIRD nursing home in this area we have put her in (actually it is my crazy sister who did so) We are appalled. The other reviews are OBVIOUSLY by those who have no family members here.

    Response: Shabby, depressing, inattentive nursing staff with don't respond quickly to alarms or patient requests. Poor food and patients all get the same food regardless of dietary restrictions. Very limited activities for patients. Patients are in rooms that are crowded and dirty. Pets in kennels have better conditions than this deplorable place! Should be shutdown by Medicare!

    Response: Dumping ground for elderly who can only afford Medicare! The most depressing facility I have ever seen!!!

    Response: This place needs rehabilitation and looks like something like a third world prison for elderly and the disabled. It is a disgrace!

    Response: This facility is substandard in every way. It needs major renovation since it does not have facilities to care for sick elderly. There is recreation area, no library, crowded depressing rooms with crowded small bathrooms that 4 people share! Food is cheap and terrible and everyone gets the same regardless of medical needs. Residents are not attended to in a timely manner. This place needs to be shut down

    Response: The previous review seems like it is written by the owners! All you have to do is visit there and see how awful this place is - like a jail for elderly!
