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%

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!

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!!!
