We had a dreadful experience here. My Dad was placed here due to dementia. Although many of the care staff were very nice, I often found him in the same clothing for several days. I once found him lying in bed, in a urine puddle. They mishandled his medications often, and never had an explanation for it. Instead they tried to blame me. I wasn't the one giving him the meds! They eventually sent him to the VA after he was found sitting on the floor. They said they couldn't be sure he hadn't fallen. He told me he was sitting on the floor because he'd soiled himself and didn't want to get the bed dirty! Once he was at the VA, they refused to allow him to return. That's what's known as a "nursing home dump". As long as you never challenge administration, and don't visit more than once a week, you'll think everything is fine. If you visit unannounced on an unexpected day, you'll see the truth.

Mother was screened and accepted to the memory care unit due to dementia, unable to place her because they wanted a signed contract of 2 years private pay, if she had that much $ I would hire personal aids for her home. Facility looks nice, certain staff nice and social, others ignore you when they walk by.

My wife grandmother was at Glenwell A DePaul Senior Living Facility. She was there until her estate was liquidated and was forced to go to an Erie County nursing home where medicaid picked up the cost. I remeber Glenwell DePaul to be a very clean and friendly facility that provided assisted living and care to middle class seniors. The several times we visited, I remember that my grandmother in law (who was like a grandmother to me was always helped with bathing and grooming. She was clean and well looked after. Also, I remember that the food they gave her was always presentable and looked and smelled great. I can't say anything about how the food tasted because I never tried it. they also provided activities and areas where she could sit with others who lived there for entertainment, friendship and leisure. The staff was always pleasant and "down to earth"; ready to address any concerns of the family and make you feel welcome. The staff would even sometimes wheel my wife's grandmother outside to sit in front and they would stay and chat a while with her. I was very impressed with the respect they gave her and the way they treated her. I have seen more upscale assisted living facilities in that area that had a "colder" atmosphere. My wife's grandmother was kept clean, treated with respect and built relationships with the staff and residents. I would recommend this facility to anyone in a similar situation that my wife's family had to face.
