I am a friend or relative of resident
My mother moved into Green Meadows 2 1/2 years ago. At that time, it was an excellent facility. Green Meadows was purchased by Emeritus and since the purchase there has been a steady decline at the facility. The decline is seen in the physical structure, management or should I say lack of management of the facility, very poor quality of food, poor quality of stimulation and activities and continual theft of personal property from residents. I am sad to report that there is now a decline in the medical attention given to my mother. Talking to management is pointless. Nothing ever changes. I am in communication with Emeritus Corporate Headquarters trying to resolve many issues. My mother is 91 with mild dementia. Moving her will be a major set back so I am trying to correct the problems. I am losing hope and feel a move may be necessary. At this point, I could not recommend this facility to anyone. There are far better communities in the Lehigh Valley.
I would like to begin by saying don't put anyone in this place they say they are committed to your family there not they are only committed to the mighty dollar they talk a good game at the beginning once you sign it's all over from there. They no longer no who you are all they are is a bunch of used car salesmen. The care on the memory floor is horrible, they don't have the residents doing anything they hurdle them likes cows to the dinning room and then back to the gathering room where they sit likes a bunch of logs the past few times I visited no activities were being done. These are still people that need to have there minds stimulated even if they really can't it still makes them feel good. The rooms are awful for what they charge a month you would think the conditions would be a lot nicer. The curtains are awful the blinds are dirty the rooms smell they are dark and dismal. The staff is horrible there are a few caring ones but other than that they are terrible. My pets get better care when they go to the vet!I hated to give this place a rating at all it doesn't deserve one. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

All the nurses and the staff were outstanding. The quality of care and support they gave were phenomenal. I would highly recommend this community to others.

My great aunt really seems to be in a caring, warm, and secure environment at Emeritus. She has got to know several of the other residents and joins in activities and clubs monthly. The caretakers recognize individuality, choices, and they treat the residents with dignity. They wanted to get to know our family as well to offer support and solutions for my great aunts condition. The staff also provides programs to recover and nurture those affected with diseases of the mind. Inside the building there is a library, large dining room, spacious sitting area, and TV rooms. The living quarters look to be beautifully decorated and organized rooms with full baths, prepared beds, furniture, seating arrangements, and large windows for perfect outside viewing. The outside of the facility is well maintained and next to a residential area with parks, fairgrounds, restaurants, shops, and landmarks of the city. It is great to know that there are plenty of outside and off-site excursions. Overall my family is very pleased with Emeritus Senior Living, it's staff/management as a whole.
If you want to spend lots of money on low-quality care, this is the place for you! Otherwise, be good to your senior citizen and look elsewhere!
Friendly, extremelyt helpful in answering questions. Very positive attitude regarding guests. Projected a "can do" attitude and a very caring and knowledgeable regarding the care of seniors who need help.
Plsread, I wish I could get in contact with you. I am going through issues with the memory care unit at this time. Mom gets sent out continually to have meds adjusted. Very little interaction is seen when we visit. Little concern over gathering personal items and returning them to the resident. Most times everyone is sitting around like a bump on a log or sleeping. No stimulation, no activities, NO MUSIC. There should be music being played in that unit at all times. I have read enough to know this is important for their stimulation. Mom is still there and I am taking chances by being upfront about the problems. Family meeting was a joke. Requested meeting with GM along with the doctors and was told the family does not interact with the doctor. Huh! As POA I want interaction with all parties. They called to let me know mom was seeing the doctor the other day. When the doctor was done I expected to talk with the doctor. Well it was not the doctor but a certificed registered nurse practitioner that was seeing mom. I don't even know if this person works for the doctor that comes in. GM is skating on thin ice with DPW at this time. They have a two year probationary period regarding issues related to care and staffing. This is documented, just google Green Meadows Allentown violations. No care plan has been discussed with the family members and now they are suggesting hospice care for someone that I don't believe is anywhere near ready for those services. Tomorrow may be an intersting day talking at GM with the hospice representative. Plsread - I would love to know where you are placing your mom now.
Do not put your loved one here!
They promised us activities, loving care, good food and stimulation. Our loved one received none of these. We had to rescue our loved one because she was loosing too much weight and was always horribly bruised.
