08/16/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother is currently there now and I am not happy with the level of care. The facilities are beautiful but the care leaves a lot to be desired. We have had several instances where my mother has had a sore or an eye infection, and I have had to chase staff around to look at the issue, then chase them around again to get treatment. After that I had to follow up several times to find out what the course of action was. Some of these things have taken several weeks to resolve.
My mom has a 6 inch bruise on her leg. I discovered this. No one called me to let me know, and she is total care so someone would have had to see her.
Meadowood has a beautiful menu with 3 choices at every meal. Dementia patients, though, only get one choice because they can't articulate what they want. For most meals they get mashed potatoes, green vegetable puree and some chicken, ham or pork puree. Other residents get shrimp scampi etc. I sat with my mom for a number of meals. When I saw that she was getting served the same thing for many meals, I voiced my displeasure and now I get to pick for her. I pity the poor people that do not have family members to speak for them.
Finally most residents that I see probably only get their diapers changed twice a day. Many are planted in the TV room right after lunch and that is where they remain until dinner.
Management does not seem particularly responsive or concerned either. I am looking for a new place but do not want to repeat another mistake.
This place charges a lot of money for minimal care provided to the patients.

Response: Where is the new place and do you like this better?

08/09/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Not a good experience here. The staff, particularly upper mgmt was only concerned with their bottom line and were inattentive to my families needs. I felt very leery of leaving my mother each day and ended up transferring her to another Nursing home. The care provided was lackluster to say the least.

04/01/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The aides were as helpful and caring as they could be, but as for the quality of professional care, I can only say my mother was neglected and because of it, she died. She was there for over a week and not once did I meet her doctors. I spoke to the nurses when I had a question (I had to go and find them), but the only care my mother received was from the aides. Doctors and nurses were unattentive and "buck passers". Don't send anyone you love there unless they can take care of themselves.
