I visited this facility
Coventry Meadows is very close to Lutheran Hospital. They have a memory care area, and the woman who took me on a tour was interacting with a woman who was walking around and wandering. She walked up to the woman and was being very friendly. That was really nice; I liked it a lot. I noticed staff interacting and sitting with the residents. Everything looks like it’s being kept up, and things are being kept in good repair. There’s outside patio-type space and common areas.

This is a lovely place in some respects...great to look at, many available activities, for example. However, after having knowledge of the day to day workings, I'm not impressed. For example, some employees think nothing of complaining to the residents about how overworked and stressed they are due to lack of staff. I witnessed medications being dropped off in a room with no oversight of the patient even taking them. Some aides are rough with fragile residents and call buttons are not always answered promptly. Who's in charge here? I've got to believe there's a problem at the top.

My mother was in Coventry Meadows for two years. The reason we picked this place for her was that it had a 24-hour nursing staff. However, they would miss on her medications. They would either overmedicate or undermedicate her. They just didn't care for her. We complained about it multiple times, but because they were on a year-to-year basis, we could not move my mother to another facility or they would sue us. That's ridiculous. We just waited until the end of the contract and that was it. Their food also was horrible. I would not recommend this place.

I was there for rehab after a knee replacement. Big mistake. Their staff can not handle someone who is not senile and had no idea what to do for a knee rehab. I was denied use of the walker I brought with me from the hospital! I checked out after one night in this horrible, horrible place.

Check out their ratings! Compared with other facilities Coventry Meadows has gotten only ONE star! Check it out for yourselves online. Becky will try to talk you into signing a DNR (do not resusitate) for your loved one. She gave me the creeps and she does not tell the truth about Coventry Meadows' ratings. The staff seems to change quite frequently too. Be careful about this place.

I recently took my mother on a tour of Coventry Meadows assisted living facility. I was very impressed with how well it was run. With my mother being a victim of Alzheimer's diseases I was happy that the facility was too big. The landscape around Coventry Meadows was very well maintained and displayed a vast variety of flowers. The one thing I was most impressed with was the staff. One person that impressed me most was Becky Nichols in admissions; she was helpful, informative, patient, and willing to help us with our questions and concerns. If you looking for a wonderful place for a loved one Coventry Meadows is the place.
From Coventry Meadows
Coventry Meadows is a senior care community for people who need assistance to get the most out of their lives—whether just for a short period of time or an extended stay. Operated by American Senior Communities, the community is designed to meet the health, social and emotional needs of older adults. Residents include seniors who are still active and independent, those recovering from an injury or illness, or seniors who simply want to live in a relaxing, peaceful setting with a range of amenities.
FACILITIES AND AMENITIES
Located just minutes from hospitals, shopping, entertainment and dining in Fort Wayne, Coventry Meadows is a unique neighborhood on the bluffs overlooking the Eagle Marsh Nature Preserve. Residents can expect comfortable facilities, an array of amenities, the peace and quiet of living next to a natural habitat and comprehensive medical care in a setting with lots of neighbors and staff who strive to care for residents as if they were family.
Coventry Meadows includes several distinct residential areas, each designed for residents with different care needs. The community’s Moving Forward Rehabilitation wing helps people recover their independence and quality of life after strokes, cardiovascular issues, orthopedic surgery and other medical conditions.
Auguste’s Cottage Memory Care offers a safe, secure and structured environment in which people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease receive research-based care in a loving environment. There is also a Long Term Care area for those who wish to remain independent for as long as possible, but need extra help, and the respite care area for residents who need assistance for a short period of time.
Coventry Meadows’s highly trained staff provides a variety of healthcare services to residents. There are physical therapists, occupational therapists, memory care facilitators and physicians on staff.
No two patients face the exact same health challenges, and no two patients have the exact same health care goals.

Every resident at Coventry Meadows has the opportunity to live a healthy, active lifestyle. The community’s “New Energy Wellness” program is meant to help residents improve their overall fitness and enjoy an active lifestyle by building strength, balance and energy through low-impact, customized exercise regimens. Skilled nursing is another health program available at Coventry Meadows. It’s designed to help people recovering from a stroke, heart attack or other debilitating health condition improve their physical and emotional wellbeing.
