This is a terrible place. The food is terrible and very unbalanced. I once stopped in to see a relative & walked around the corner to hear the kitchen manager explaining to the people who live there in a horribly rude tone they aren't allowed to have juice at every meal because other nursing homes don't do that. I was under the understanding this wasn't a nursing home. There is no menu for them to choose from, just a poor menu featuring the same rotating items. My relative is real chair bound and they have her on the second floor of the building. If the place was state licensed they wouldn't get away with this. If there were a fire none of those "girls" would be able to get my wheel chair bound relative down 2 sets of stairs alive and safe. THIS PLACE IS NOT STATE RUN. The staff is poorly trained and the good ones they can't seem to keep because the administrator of this building treats them all so poorly. This came from a long term staff member. I've witnessed this a couple of times while visiting. She smiles and tries to pretend she likes her job, but she doesn't. Everyone can see thru her body odor and cheap blazers. Train your employees, get state licensed and stop treating the good staff so poorly so they'll stay and we don't have to worry about our loved ones being abused! The turnover of staff in this place is unreal. My relative gets so upset each time she hears one of the good ones is gone and my family has to calm her down. I've walked in numerous times and seen the staff sitting in the front window on facebook and paying no attention to the people who live there. Don't ever put your family in this place. There are not safeguards in this place for people with Dementia. There's a pond in the back with no fence. If you can't find your resident who's wandered off, check the bottom of the not so protected pond. So glad to have my loved ones safe from this place.


Response: People listen up, everything this person said is true. I hope you had informed the elder abuse hotline as we did in 2012 when my mom was allegedly slapped. Paul Wyman was very cold and very unpleasant with my family and never asked my mom about it. The state came in and they got violations. But please be aware there is only a slap on the wrist and they say we wont do that again. No fines for adult foster care homes like this. Go to assisted living homes that are regulated because chestnut is adult foster and they don't have the same rules to follow. The state needs to change this now before people are hurt. And yes Dementia residents are not safe. I have seen the dam door just propped open with no one around. really. my mom got her drugs then she turned around and got her neighbors, what do you expect from some very young girls passing meds.

Non medical trained workers distributing medications. Make sure you check , my parent was given someone else's narcotic medicine. It took the home a long time to get halfway decent meals with no choices of alternate food such as they serve dark meat chicken and don't offer white meat for those who don't eat dark. We found other homes in the Community that had menus for residents to pick from so they knew in advance what they are having. Chestnut puts it on a board just hours before a meal daily. not a good facility for assisted living maybe okay for independent living

At first comes across as great place than down hill after that. Residents best interest goes to the way side. Abuse does not get reported by management. Residents get ignored. Long time to get them to make descent meals. Come on tacos for these older people they want meat and potatoes. It's just not what you thought it was going to be. Bummed out

Had very bad experience at this home. They are being investigated by dept.human services. Abuse was reported and no concern was shown to protential victim. Paid to have room clean twice a week, room was not kept up. Many meals were a cup of soup and a half a sandwich, many times they were out of basic items. Many times not treated with dignity.

Description of Chestnut Fields in Muskegon, MI

Number of Beds : 20

For residents who cherish their independence but still need a helping hand with some daily activities, the assisted living program at Chestnut Fields is designed for exactly such a lifestyle. Come experience true freedom, but one with compassionate care always nearby! Assisted living communities have many benefits. Research suggests that seniors who live near their peers and have a variety of social activities feel a greater sense of well-being. With assisted living, you'll enjoy senior-friendly apartments and a busy social calendar. Other services you'll find include around-the-clock supervision and security, access to professional nurses, emergency call systems, help with daily living, and nutritious meals prepared by chefs. These communities typically provide housekeeping, laundry, transportation, and a calendar of social events. When you don't need assistance in in your daily life, but want the benefits and peace of mind of living in a senior-friendly community, choose independent living. Developed for both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as retirement villages, 55+ communities, and senior apartments. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a plethora of community amenities, services, and programs tailored just for seniors. You'll have your own private space, so you can bring your favorite furniture, photos, and cookware. You’ll be able to spend time pursuing activities that you enjoy since tasks commonly associated with homeownership will be taken care of. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. You'll find many social programs and community amenities, such as gardening, bridge, bingo, fitness programs, book clubs, and planned outings. This memory care residence necessitates a more direct level of care, consistent memory enrichment programs, and increased security for your loved one. Seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia need a staff that is trained in memory care. Residents live in private or semi-private studio homes with twenty-four-hour supervision. Three nutritious meals a day plus snacks are provided, as well as housekeeping and laundry services. Structured activities designed specifically for memory impairment provide cognitive stimulation. Facilities typically have secured areas, such as walking paths and gardens, for residents to access. Other important services include behavioral therapies, continence care, medication management, and assistance with bathing and grooming. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) provide a comprehensive care platform, from independent living to assisted living to long-term care options. In-home care is there when you or a loved one needs it. Care professionals come to you. This choice is perfect for those who prefer to stay in their homes but who need some help with the daily activities of living. These services, available 24 hours a day, every day, are paid for by the individual or through public and private funding sources, such as Medicare and/or Medicaid. Home care offers many medical and non-medical support services. There are two types of home care providers. The first is a skilled service provider, usually licensed nurses and therapists, who can address various medical concerns or rehabilitation needs. The second, more common, type of in-home care is supplied by an aide who can provide companionship and emotional support as well as assist with daily activities, including grooming, meal prep, and transportation. In-home care allows seniors to stay as independent as possible in their own homes. The help you'll find at assisted living communities is offered when you need it, with the goal of supplying the support services required to stay as self-sufficient as possible. When seniors don't need assistance in in their daily lives, but want the benefits and peace of mind of living in a senior-friendly community, choose independent living. Memory care necessitates a more direct level of care, memory enhancement programs, and social opportunities, all in a secure, warm setting. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) provide an extensive care platform, from independent living to assisted living to long-term care options. In-home care is there when you or a loved one needs it. Care professionals will bring their expertise and experience to your home. This choice is perfect for those who want to stay in their homes but who need some help with the daily activities of living. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, services are paid by the client or by a variety of public and private sources, such as Medicare and/or Medicaid.
