My parents have been at Holy Redeemer Lafayette since November 2012. They are in a 2 bedroom independent apartment and are quite happy with the facility. It would be nice to have a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the apartment, but they manage without-the free washer/dryer is down the hall . Their only complaint was the food. The chef has changed and they seem to like the new choices. I visit regularly and find the independent area clean and well maintained. Their apartment is cleaned by the staff and is spotless. I can't comment on the "personal care" or "nursing home" part of the facility, but the independent piece has worked out very well for out family.

    My grandparents were both living here until March of 2013, when they basically had no choice but to leave and move across the country to relocate at the ages of 88 and 93. They lived at Holy Redeemer for about 4 years in a 2 bedroom apartment. The staff was fine, but somewhat negligent. The facilities were not clean in general. My grandparent's clothes were often lost in the laundry, even though they were clearly labeled and organized. When my family realized that my grandparents money was depleting and they no longer had the money to afford the at least $80,000/year for their apartment and mediocre food.
    When my mother went in several times to speak with the social worker and heads of the facility about other options in terms of moving into a smaller apartment or other financial support, they had no interest in offering any other information. With my mother crying, the social worker in fact questioned my mother's choice to have my grandparents living there at all, and told her that she cared for her own mother at home and maybe that's what we should do as well. That's certainly not an option for everyone. The director of the facility was very lax in returning my mother's calls and had no interest in helping in any way when she did finally speak to him. This place is a business. No sense of personal care or consideration, and no empathy for any of the families of the elderly who are living there.

    Wait an hour for help
    Told patient "I don't have time to take you to the bathroom. Pee in your diaper."
    Questionable fall prevention safety interventions

    Response: I have a response to this I have seen instances where some patients including our friend wait for help, maybe if some volunteers could help with some chores like feeding patients and just talking to them so then are not left to fen for themselves when they can't. Shore staff is a big issue these days. Keeping patients clean is a tough job. I have some suggestions for you laundry room. Clothes that are not picked up should be put in baskets or a laundry cart so everything is not piled on the washer and dryer. Maybe someone could take time to fold items. Ikea carries table that attach to wall and can fold down when not in use this would keep things organized. We know the facilities are more a business now than a compassionate place. Maybe you folks can achieve both being a religious affiliation. Most folks try to help each other. Shame you can't foster this, guess liability comes into play. People need to be told what they can expect and if not getting these services money should be refunded to insurance.
