Since I haven't had experiences with other nursing homes I would have to give Creekside Retirement Community a 3/5. My 85 year old mother is convalescing for two broken wrists and a few broken ribs. She will be there about 6 more weeks. As far as the expense, I was surprised to see it is ONLY $157 a day before insurance! They have satisfactory nursing staff, but polite for the most part. They deal with problems calmly and professionally. The food is marginal. Fairly clean facility.

The main issue we have is with the administration of medications. They do well at giving them, but care is not taken by medical staff in reviewing drug interactions. With the elderly often taking many drugs, this can be a MAJOR issue.

My mother had all her health issues stabilized and under control before entering Creekside. They then started loading up the drugs, with many of them new. Her blood pressure then started spiking at 200/90 a number of times. Other new symptoms also presented themselves.

After doing my own investigation into drug interactions, I concluded that there were no severe or major interactions with the normal medication regimen. However, with the new medications there were a number of SEVERE and MAJOR drug interactions. I brought this to the attention of the medical staff and suspect they will make modifications.

Drug interactions are always an issue that must be carefully reviewed by medical personnel. Sadly, it is rarely ever addressed, and doctors continue to just throw new medications on top of the others to attack symptom.

All-in-all I would recommend Creekside to others, but with the above caveats.

    Creekside is a money making organization that fails to provide patient care. Don't waste your family resources. Search for a facility that truly cares about your loved ones needs. Creekside loves the money not your family.


    Response: Our experience for my mothers care at Creekside is awesome.

    Response: its ok

    Response: Creekside is a non-profit newer facility with excellent food and caring staff. My Dad was in skilled nursing having Parkinson's for years and Mom is in assisted living.
