A Hospital Social Worker August 05, 2011

I visited this facility

This is a very secure facility, offering assisted living and memory care: all visitors who enter are tracked and monitored, which can be very reassuring, especially for residents with memory issues. It's right next to another facility"”and this one is more beautiful. There's always a gardener outside, manicuring the lawn and garden.

The rooms are well-kept and residents are free to personalize them as they want. There is a common living area that is clean and well appointed, but there is very little staff supervision there, which may be a bit of concern with some residents who have behavioral issues.

Activities focus on music therapy; some residents are encouraged to participate in plays. The food is good, featuring seasonal foods and salads. And there is a beautician on staff who is very in tune with residents who need memory care or who have behavioral issues.

The nursing communication is clear, but the staff seem less welcoming to outsiders and less attentive than they might be to residents; some of them also seem to be a bit bitter, perhaps because the facility seems understaffed.

I visited this facility

When you come in the door, the facility is presentable"”but not amazing. They do keep up the place and make it a good environment. In fact, this is a very peaceful place, both for the caregivers and the residents. It is very clean, and the rooms area good size.

It is also refreshing that the administration here does not tolerate politics among staff members. In fact, the staff is respectful and kind and very attentive, but leave people their own privacy. They bring the best in residents, trying to keep them as independent as possible. For example, they allow people to use their walkers on their own, rather than hurrying them or pushing them about in wheelchairs. In some places, the residents enter walking and within three months are in wheelchairs.

Each resident has a private room; there are around 100 of them.

The caregiving staff is well organized and professional. If any issue arises, it is addressed immediately. The staff members, who are helpful and polite, seem to know the residents and interact very well with them. Most have good rapport and bond well, and there is not much turnover. The medication management is also very good.

Powell Valley is also strict about requiring the staff to wear uniforms to help identify them. That feature helps with security"”and everyone also has a name tag and badge for identification.

The food is not remarkable; it seems much like most assisted living places. There are many choices, but it is not generally very appetizing.

There are a number of planned activities offered, such as inviting people in to lead discussions and do musical performances. Residents are also encouraged on outings in the community"”grocery shopping, walks in the park, siteseeing trips. Dependable van transportation is available for residents who need help getting to medical appointments and other places.

The cost is much the same as other places in the area"”very fair for the housing and care that is offered there.
