Searching for oasis October 12, 2012

I visited this facility

This facility is not as expansive in some of their amenities as other places in Seattle. The fitness room is small, and the group activities are relatively limited. The structure is basic, with limited room for strolling or gardening. HOWEVER, it is located in the heart of Phinney Ridge, which has to be one of the most adorable neighborhoods I have visited in Seattle. I visited several times with my dad, and he was very impressed with the quality of the local coffee shops, a chocolate drink specialist(!), and good food offerings. There is also a Safeway outside of walking distance for my dad, but easily accessible by the number 5 bus one block away. That same bus leads to Fremont. Norse Homes advertises a "Scandinavian Hospitality", which seems to mean that the staff is a bit more hands off than other locations. My dad prefers this style, as he would rather maintain privacy and ask for extra attention when needed. However, some people may prefer more constant care. Several residents commented that the food was delicious. A group of residents make regular visits to Greenlake, which is one of the most beautiful natural features in North Seattle. It is located nearby, but, unfortunately, the elevation changes make it difficult for older adults to walk to the location. When I began looking for Seattle locations for my dad, I focused on central Seattle for its cultural offerings. North Seattle, particularly the Ballard/Fremont/Phinney neighborhoods, have changed my focus. These areas combine culture with natural beauty and local character.

The rehabilitation aspect of this facility is excellent, as long as you have your faculties, awareness, and can fend for yourself. If not, the patient is left in wheelchairs unattended with no alarm system to keep them safe if they decide to get up and stand. There are no alarms on the beds or even rails to keep someone from falling out. The beds do raise and lower and pads can be put on the sides of the bed to cushion a fall. My 84 year old father, with Alzheimer's, fell out of bed several times and from the wheelchair two times within a month; on two of those occasions the facility called an ambulance to take him to ER at a nearby hospital. Fortunately, he had no breaks or fractures; he had stitches, hematomas, and broken glasses. The food at the facility is excellent, as are the OT and PT personnel. The nursing side is lacking and undoes the great strides the patient makes in rehab.
