    04/29/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: wonderful staff and a clean, beautiful facility. I never wanted mom to go to a nursing home but Beacon's is the best.

    10/18/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mom was a resident at Beacon Hill's nursing home until she passed away last month. I cannot say enough about how caring the staff is there. Even though the rooms are not overly spacious, the care we all got was incredible and we will always appreciate the way they took care of mom.

    05/30/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Our dad only had a short stay at Beacon but the facility and staff treated him wonderfully. I can not say enough about the care and love we received during those days.

    01/26/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mom was at Beacon Hill for a very short time, but in that time they gave my mom the wrong dosage of her medicine or did not give her her meds at all on several occasions. We were not notified of this. We had to ask (multiple times.) Response time to "calls" were often delayed. Very few appropriate activities offered to the residents in the nursing home. Once the lights went out, and no staff was to be found. People were left in the dark. No aquarium, "Too hard to keep clean." Nurse admin. kept referring to my mom's diagnosis incorrectly, and when I corrected her, she said, "We can call it what we want." Disrespectful, dismissive, and downright unkind.

    01/24/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: THERE WAS A RESIDENT GOING THROUGH CANCER TREATMENT AND REQUESTED THAT BEACON HILL LET HER KNOW WHEN THEY WOULD TEST THE ALARM SYSTEM. SHE REQUESTED THIS BECAUSE IT CAUSED HER PHYSICAL PAIN TO HEAR THE ALARM SYSTEM GO OFF AND SIMPLY WANTED TO LEAVE THE PREMISES BEFORE EACH SYSTEM TEST. THIS RESIDENT EVEN HAD A NOTE FROM THE DOCTOR THAT THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN. SIMPLE REQUEST RIGHT? BEACON HILL RESPONDED "DONT BOTHER US WITH YOUR PETTY REQUESTS" ABSOLUTELY ABSURD! DO NOT SEND YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS HERE! THE EMERGENCY STAFF TAKES OVER AN HOUR TO RESPOND TO SIMPLE RESTROOM ASSISTANCE CALLS!
