I visited this facility
I came with a friend and his family to visit a relative that was a big part of my life growing up. During my brief stay here I noticed quite a few things, The staff was extremely friendly and personal with every person in the facility. It was clean, there seemed to be plenty of activities for the occupants to participate in and everyone seemed relatively comfortable. Even with all of this though I'm not quite sure about the quality of the care that is provided, during a discussion with one of the nurses the family I was with was bewildered as there had apparently been no communication between the "weekend shift" and the nurses that were currently handling the relative. This concerned us as the person in there care was susceptible to falling (minor occurrences but potentially dangerous) and had an extreme case of dementia, and due to lack of facility communication we had no way of actually finding out if he had any problems over the weekend.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mom has Alzheimers and was comfortably living with my dad until a series of events happened. My dad had a massive stroke and my mom came to live with me. I was caring for my mom and working a 6-day a week job and taking her to adult day care (which became very hard for her) My mom's condition was upgraded to severe, therefore needing 24 hr care. While at my house, she fell 3 times and that concerned me. My sister came from NC and we looked at facilities for her to stay. We choose Dominion Village in Poquoson, Va. Since Poquoson is where we all live it seemed perfect. Well it is, it is a small and down-home type of place and I am convinced that she is happy there. She has her own bedroom and her own bath (complete with a tub) and we are allowed to set all the rules. Her meals are served home-style so if she wants more peas she can have them) and with real dinnerware. The staff is caring and very co-operative. I go to see my mom almost every day and she is doing well. I love the facility and what they are doing for the sick. At first there where wrinkles that had to be ironed out but I am convident now that this was the right choice.
