I visited this facility
Someone from Emeritus called and invited me to come with my mother to have lunch and a tour of the facility. The place was very nice, the staff was friendly, and the food was good. I like best that the location was very nice and so like the country where my mother lived, and it's not that far from the city.
I visited this facility
The staff was extremely friendly and were always attentive to their residents needs. The place itself was a pretty good size, not too big or too small, and residents didn't seem to have a hard time getting around. Most were in wheelchairs so that obviously adds a number of problems to it. The food was really good. I was surprised that they actually had to much to eat and such a variety as well. When we went up to my family friends' room, it seemed pretty comfortable. It had a small couch and a good sized bed along with a TV with cable. There were also nurses walking by all the time, peering in to make sure the residents were doing okay. The place was extremely safe, too & you had to be buzzed in and out of the building. They let most people out if it was nice but some were too old to go out on their own.
Unscrupulous heartless money grubbers
I placed my Father in Summerville. Not a day goes by that I don't regret that decision. Upon admittance, we were charged a "one-time only" community fee. Please note that my Father was a stroke patient. Much of his behavior was consistent with a stroke survivor. Two months after his entry into Summerville, my Father was admitted to a hospital for gastric problems. Upon his release from the hospital, the staff at Summerville informed me that my Father required placement into their Alzheimer's unit because of vascular dementia. Again, this is consistent with an elderly stroke patient. Of course, they charged another community fee. While he was in their Alzheimer's unit, I personally observed a nurse reacting angerly to my Father because my Father had refused to shower. Its called vascular dementia..what doesn't the nurse understand ? When I tried to question the "house doctor" about a change in his medication: why isn't he getting his blood thinners ? The doctor blew me off by saying, "I don't have to answer to you." Excuse me, I'm the medical power of attorney...what doesn't this pompous jerk understand? One month later, I developed bronchitis and followed their rules that no one with an active cough is allowed to visit. The Summerville staff made daily phone calls to complain of my Father's behavior. Its called vascular dementia...what don't they understand ? Despite all their talk of being experts, the Summerville staff does NOT understand dementia. They can only deal with Stepford patients. Summerville threw my Father out of the Alzheimer's unit for having advanced level dementia. They did this at a time when they knew damn well I was sick. One of the nurses made threatening phone calls to me that she was going to "play hardball with me" and would send him to a state psychiatric facility if I didn't get him out of there. Summerville's complaints about my Father centered on him not wanting to shower and not wanting to eat. My Father was not hostile to any patient. He had yelled at one male nurse who tried to physically force him to shower. At the time they accepted the entry fee to the Alzheimers unit, they knew damn well he had vascular dementia. They took his money and threw him out 2 months later for having dementia!!!! When I came to pick him up, they would not allow me to use a luggage cart to carry his belongings out. They would not allow me to use the back door that was closer to the Alzheimer's unit. They did not offer to help me carry anything. They wouldn't even hold the door open. The male nurse glared at me the entire time as I packed my Father's belongings. Does it make sense to glare at me because my Father had vascular dementia ? Those people are ignorant, inconsiderate, greedy, money grubbers. I hope they all burn in hell.
