I visited this facility
I did not like Crest View on 42ND. People didn't seem very happy. It didn't seem very appealing. It wasn't homey, and it seemed cold. I didn't get a good feeling from it at all. They offered 1 meal at the same price. I didn't meet that many staff members, only a couple. They were OK, but they need to make the place a bit more homier. This place lacked character, hominess, and warmth.

Crest View on 42nd had everything you need and wasn't that fancy. They didn't have all of the fancy woodwork or linen tablecloths, but it had all of the basic things. We liked it because it's associated with the Lutheran Church and had a very nice chapel right in the building for Sunday morning services. It had a homey feeling. We felt comfortable there. It's more like being in a friend's or Grandma's house rather than in a hotel.

Although this facility had some good qualities, the overall feel of this place was no more than just okay. Some of the staff members would encourage my mother to do things that would ultimately help her to help herself while other staff members would ask once, then push no more if my mother wasn't interested. Some nurses and assistants were nice, friendly, and upbeat, while others seemed distant, impersonal, and not happy to be at work. Some nurses would do my mother's personal cares in the correct manner (such as positioning) in an acceptable way, others would not. As far as the food, a lot of the items were things that my mother, personally, would not eat and when she did try a bite anyway, she did not care for the taste of the food. There were also several times that the food arrived cold when it should have been warm or hot. I think there should be a consistent standard of care and service that should be applied by all staff members and the importance of this standard should be stressed to the staff steadily.
